Marstonlad (596) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Pours black with a medium-sized white head. The aroma features rye bread, nuts, licorice and plenty of roasty notes. Taste is sweetish but has also roasty notes; licorice and bread feature mostly. The palate is medium bodied, a bit sticky and moderate in carbonation. Nice porter that is luckily widely available in Croatian bars.

F: big frothy pale brown long lasting. C: dark non-transparent, dark red. A: light caramel and roasted malt. T: again caramel and roasted malt, some sourness, coffee tones, dry finish, hint of plums, decent Croatia beer worth to try.

Hoppy_Luke (710) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Ciemnobrunatne, z dużą, drobno- i średniopęcherzykową pianą. W aromacie dużo czekolady, rodzynek, nieco paloności i trochę metalu. W smaku gwoździe mocniej się uwydatniły. Wyczuwalna też czekolada i ogólnie ciemne owoce. Trochę za lekkie jak na porter, ale ogólnie całkiem przyzwoite.

zoucrew102 (899) - - JUL 30, 2015
500ml bottle in Doubrovnik, Croatia. Caramel malt aroma with some roasted malt and licorice notes. Pours dark brown with ruby hue, an extremely thin white head with no retention or lacing. Starts with caramel malt flavors and some licorice flavors with a medium body. Finishes smooth with roasted maltiness and a touch of hoppiness. Best Croatian beer so far.

Roasty and heavy, a lot better than other beers from same brewery. Gets you tipsy in no time and hammered a lot sooner than one would expect. Decent beer.

ectuohy27 (762) - ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2015
A very good, rich, velvety beer that defies easy description. Aroma is strangely off-hopped but beyond that, the head is thick, almost creamy; the beer itself has a rounded, full character at mid-taste, with some touches of caramel sweetness and some of roasted stout, though malt predominates; and the finish is (sadly) a bit too bitter and hoppy. Still quite clearly worthwhile, and a very nice surprise from a Croatian macro.

jamestulloch (2204) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle at Mea Culpa, Dubrovnik. Dark brown body with ruby highlights and a thin beige head. Lively carbonation. Very faint lacing. Aroma of raisin, plum, roasted malts and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavour of prunes, flat Coca-Cola, cherry and a Belgian style finish - pepper and spice. Thin body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Easy drinking for the ABV and quite complex.

Splitissä pullosta 6/2015. One could maybe argue if it is a baltic porter or not, good beer anyway.
