3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Generally a very solid dark lager. Dark brown with semi lasting medium beige to brownish head. Some light aroma of roasted barley, not very heavy on the nose. More roastiness in the taste, but also caramel sweetness, perhaps very light cofee notes, not easily distinguishable. Body is medium to full, bitterness is light to medium. The strange thing about this beer is that it variated significantly when I had it several times at the brewpub. A couple times it was very good indeed, easily drinkable and very enjoyable, but at other times it was much less good, once bad enough I couldn’t finish the mug. I cannot efficiently explain this, but I don’t find this variation in the bottled version, which is at least under Spar Premium brand name the best price/performance ratio dark beer over here.

Fľaša. Veľmi tmavá hnedá farba, hnedá pena držala pomerne dlho. Vôňa sladová, pražené slady, prezreté slivky. Chuť pražených sladov a prezretých sliviek, karamel, toffifee. Príliš sladké na mňa, aj keď piteľné na prekvapenie.

330ml bottle from Premier Bar, Ljubljana, Slovenia (€2.80):
This one was a surprisingly enjoyable dark lager from Union. Well balanced & smooth with a nice sweetness & some darker, roasted flavours plus a few background fruits. It was an easy one to drink as well with enough variation to keep things interesting.
