Bowled in to an old man boozer within the city walls of Dubrovnik. Felt like the only place in the vicinity that wasn’t designed to fleece tourists. There was a team of old boys singing traditional Croatian songs and it was a bit of a stopped piano moment when we arrived. They got over and we stayed for a game of chess and a pint of Tomislav. Basically the only serviceable beer from the old guard of Croatian brewers. It’s thick and robust. Sweet and Boozy. Delicious.

Bouteille 50cl, cheers to my uncle for bringing this one from his vacations.
Couleur acajou, col crémeux blanc-cassé.
Arôme au bouquet malté caramel, rétro sur une pointe de chocolat avec un petit ajout fruité noir.
Palais est malté, cara crystal dark, fruité noir rappelant la prune. Léger chocolaté, caramel, et un fini pils. Amertume arrive en toute fin de bouche ajoutant ce côté noble aux houblons. Le fruité noir est aussi agréable avec ce petit rappel de fruits confits.

Enjoyed many a bottle of this while in Croatia and it was a very nice change of pace from all the pale lagers. Pours dark with hints of caramel and roasted malt.

Really nice industrial beer, however I was surprised with it being one of the best Croatian beers. Definitely not! However, I would recommend it. As it can be found anywhere it is always a good plan B.

500ml bottle(5/2/5/2/10=2.4), thanks FatPhil. Dark motor oil color. Faint caramel, slightly sweet and some roast in aroma. Sour in taste. Smooth and caramel too. Ordinary taste. Sour notes are not intensive. Ohh and it looks like beer! (review and numbers by Kristel)

Odlično pivo, uz Gričku vješticu najbolje Hrvatsko tamno pivo. Tamna boja, gustoća i okus karamele, čokolade i kave. Malo je slađe za moj ukus, al to mu ne kvari prosjek.

0,5 bottle from Croatia, courtesy of Marko. Opened and consumed in Serbia. Pours the closest I have so far seen to espresso coffee color, brown texture and creamy dark ivory foam. Nose: coffee, leather, molasses, fresh black figs. Mouth: bitter palate, smoked barley, refreshing aftertaste and not much of that 7,3% alcohol. One more please. Thank you Marko
