Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle in Sarajevo. Nearly black except the slight hint of copper on bottom. Lacing is scattered. Aroma is pretty rich with molasses and sweet pumpernickel. Nice body is neither too thin or big, making it super drinkable. Solid malt character is balanced by a dry moreish finish and a little bread crust. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - country #90 with thanks to RobertDale! Pours clear ruby black, medium creamy brown head, dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is ruddy, cocoa, molasses, pumpernickle. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, roasty, molasses, dark breads. Medium body. Pretty solid, actually.

Bottle. Dark brown with a dissipating tan head. The aroma is very breadish, with caramel/toffee, the flavour has more roasted malt and some crap coffee, toffee. Average, but drinkable.

hrabren (53) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 20, 2014
0.33 bottle in Beli konj, Slovenske Konjice, Slovenia. Pours black with off-white head, diminishes quickly. Hardly distinctive aroma of roasted malts, some sweetness and bitterness, roasty, doesn’t linger, some unpleasant iron aroma in the finish. I don’t recommend it.

33 cL bottle sold as Spar Premium Temno Pivo in Ljubljana. Very dark reddish brown, almost black color. Small light brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is weak malts and slightly sweet. Taste is mostly ashtray and some coffee, pleasantly bitter. Aftertaste turns sweeter, of coffee and hazelnut. Average carbonation. Not my preferred style of beer but a good choice from local stores.

330 ml bottle as Spar Premium Temno Pivo. BB 15/04/2015. (Spar) Ljubljana, Slovenia. Dark reddish brown almost black colour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, cigarette ash and mild hops in a dry aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, ashtray and dry hops. Very dry and ashy. Not the worst cheap supermarket chain labeled beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
