3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Alcohol character too prevalent. A bit too sweet as well. Not so well balanced and definitely not a session beer. Otherwise, though, it’s pretty good. I don’t think this was any kind of attempt at a Baltic Porter. It’s just a strong and dark lager. Perhaps the best of the mega corporate beers in Croatia but still falls short of being a great beer. Still, when at a bar with a limited selection of beers in Croatia, this is often available and is worth trying.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0,5l. Dark liquid, average beige not very steady head. Medium body and carbonation. Roasty taste, a bit too sweet, almost too much. Not bad but cannot drink to much.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark with tan head and roasty aroma. Not the most intense Baltic Porter I’ve tried but that does tend to enhance its drinkability. Reasonably bitter finish. Nice.

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.
