Croatian Royal Beer.
Tomislav, made with 17.75% malt extract, is the strongest beer in Croatia, introduced in 1925. The use of double malted barley gives this dark lager its full taste and special aroma, much appreciated by connoisseurs. Tomislav pivo has an alcohol content of 7.3% vol, and should be served at 8° C.

Wypite w Chorwacji w 2002r.Butelka, lekki porter a raczej ciemne mocne.Kolor ciemny, prawie czarny. Piana trzyma się dobrze, nagazowanie średnie. Aromaty czekoladowe, karmelowe i orzechowe. W smaku wybija się alkohol i słodkośc ale ogólne doznania przyjemne.

Dark brown to black color, medium head, medium lacing. Malty licorice smell, strawy a bit. Taste malty sweet, licorice, oily, too heavy for half litre, not so tasty for long sipping. You can feel carbonation both on tongue and in throat. Very good for macro, but really nothing special.

Decent lightweight baltic porter from Croatia. Nice appearance taste and aroma, not intense though. Not outstanding but I cannot say anything bad about it.

On tap in Vintage Bar in Zagreb. Don’t like this beer. After second glass it leave bad taste in throat. Most overrated beer in Croatia.

Despite recently being dethroned by Zmajska as the best rated beer in the country, Tomislav is still the undisputed king of the macro produced brews. I simply can’t think of a (non craft) beer that would come close second to this one. Black head, aroma of roasted malts and alcohol coming through. A bit of sweetness, caramel, coffee, all leading to a bitterish finish. This is definitely the booziest beer made in Croatia and it’s not for the faint hearted. If you can handle it, this is the mix of fastest, cheapest and most beer geek approved way of...getting drunk.

Without a doubt one of the best beers in Croatia! Very drinking notwithstanding a rather high degree of alcohol.
