The Black Turtle Blueberry
On tap at Prvi Novosadski festival. Pours dark purple, blueberries in aroma. Sweet, syrupy, mostly blueberry flavor. Unfortunately very artificial and too sweet. Not something I’d like to drink again.

The Black Turtle Turtle’s Bitter
Draught at BT III. Biscuity and caramelly malt base, plus some grassy and citrusy hops to round things off. Moderate bitterness. Not particularly exciting but quite pleasant, actually.

The Black Turtle Tamno
Draught at BT III. Has a nice, creamy texture. Which is good, since otherwise this mix of sauerkraut and coffee would be hardly drinkable.

The Black Turtle Svetlo
Draught at BT III. Light malty beer, very flawed, with cheap soap and buttery diacetyl all around. Not a drainpour but not exactly drinkable either.

The Black Turtle Blueberry
On tap at The Black Turtle Pub IV - Prešernova Klet.
Blueberry is straight from the keg, Strawberry and Lemon are Turtle Svetlo mixed with syrup!!!
Darker purple coloured, small pinkish head, dusty blueberry nose. Sweet and syrupy blueberry taste with candy sugar notes. In fact quite artificiall and a way too sweet. Pretty stale and metalic also. Don’t waste money on this one.

The Black Turtle 13th Anniversary Ale
There still isn’t a lot of available information about this beer. I don’t know the abv and exactly the producer, the staffs at the pubs are not very helpful, but here we go: Mahogany brown with big soapy, foamy head, Sweet, fresh hop nose, medium sweet. , fruitty hop but not bitter. Smooth and refreshing. Deep color, good enough flavor.

The Black Turtle Cider
Belgrade Beer Fest 2013. This year listed at 7%. Big cloudy pour, huge yeast, some visibly floating in the creamy head. Sour red apple, bittering, alc bite. Cloudy flavor, unfiltered creaminess. Not a terrible cider, but overly ambitious again for the Black Turtle. I hope they get around to refining some of these ’special/seasonal’ beers of theirs

The Black Turtle Tamno
33cl draught. Beer and coffee in one. :) I liked it for the decent coffee aroma, minimal sweetness, black colour, medium body. Minimal smoke is also nice for roasted coffee taste. Not too alcoholic, not too sweet. Good.

The Black Turtle Svetlo
33cl draught. It is a malty, medium bodied light beer with creamy, silky foam, but the taste is awful. Some sweet malt and decent (bad) yeast, some citric acid, rotten egg and so on. Aftertaste is leather and yeast also.

The Black Turtle Belgian Abbey
Pint glass at the Black Turtle on Svetogorska. Hazy cherry wood, brown body. Thick bubbly head. Tart candy sweetness, red fruit, cherry and raspberry. Sticky sweetness, but finishes relatively cleanly with some bittering. Creamy, overtly sweet, but not really bad even. Missing carbonation but feels like there is some ale in there. Strange. This might be the best black turtle beer I’ve tried, and I guess ’closest to the mark’ they are aiming for when they tell us what style they are trying that I’ve seen. Head sticks around; a real ale finally? Any day, this was tasty.

The Black Turtle Novogodišnje Pivo
Thanks Matea for bringing this from Belgrade! Deep hazy golden body with medium sized head. Weak citrus aroma, no cloves or Belgian yeastness. Flavor was slightly sweet, some yeast, apple notes, lightly acidic. Thin to medium bodied with shorter acidic finish. Nothing much here, nor particularly interesting. A bit off, since bought more than 10 days ago, but still wouldn’t be much better the day it went out of tap.

Ugly dull brown and hazy. Aroma of phenols and light smoke. Phenols dominate the smoke. The malts aren’t very characterful.
