0.5 På tap seaside restaurant i Bol. Brunt skum som varer. Svart som natten. Aroma av malt kaffe sjokolade. Smak av kaffe og malt. Myk og mild. Veldig god. Og den eneste øl som ikke var pils.

Bottle to proper glassware at Caffe Bar Drama in Split. When we ordered the beer the bartender said "You know this is a black beer?" Because everything else in Croatia is fizzy yellow water. Pours a dark brown without much of a head. The taste is the least malty Baltic Porter I’ve ever had but it was a welcomed change of pace from the industrial pilseners all week.

MarkoNm (400) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a very dark brown color, almost black, with very decent cream colored head. Pleasant roasted aroma goes well with some caramel and chcolate as well. Starts sweet, followed by a decently roasted feel, also some caramel maybe. Some bitterness in the end. Creamy and smooth, easily drinkable and enjoyable. Good job.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
Roasty caramel and a coffee finish, this Croatian take on a Baltic Porter was by far the best beer I had visiting Bosnia, Croatia and Montenegro in 2013. Strong and very smooth, this beer is highly drinkable without being very watery. A beer Croatia should be proud of.

Thanks to kevnic2008 for this 0,5l bottle, 10/03/14 00:49/96
The beer starts dark, roasted and highly drinkable. Not really watery, but kind of. The maipart is on the one hand thin and watery, on the other hand malty, intense. Interesting! Brown sugar, liquorice, hints of sourness, which makes it highly drinkable. The aftertaste is smooth, sweetish-sour, lots of malt, liquorice, moderate bitterness.
Interesting and easy to drink Porter. Still flavourful. Nice. --> 12/13/12/12
