Excellent and few simple ingredients make this the best dark lager ever. Dark and caramalized taste with a very good balance of maltiness and hops. Definitely recommended for beer connoisseurs. The aroma is very appealing as is the very dark appearance. The taste balances off any strong or light meal. The plate is great from the first sip to the last drop swallowed. The overall feeling is that this is a must beer for anyone serious about trying a great dark lager.

Karlovačko crno contains very good basic ingredients with a dark color, malty caramalized taste. The beer has a great balance maltiness and bitterness expected from a dark lager. The alcohol does not strike the head as other beers and a real beer connoiseur is able to enjoy this beer, especially those who prefer dark lagers.

The beer looks amazing. It looks just like this type should. The color of the beer is a dark brown, almost black. With a strong light, a nice ruby red glow can be seen. The beer seems a bit cloudy, but its so dark that dis is hard to tell. The beer pours a nice layer of foam. The beer pours a nice layer of soft, light brown foam. The bulk of the foam collapses, to leave a nice soft drape of foam. The smell is nice. There is a good bitterness, that mainly contains roasty bitterness from roasted barley. There is also a strong aroma of licorice. It is a bit to strong for my taste and seems a bit out of balance. The smell also has a sweetness of the malts, besides the bitterness. The taste of the beer nice to. There is again the nice bitterness and sweetness. The licorice flavor is even stronger in the taste. Its a bit out of balance. A shame, because this type of beer is so lovely.

Ładna piana. W zapachu delikatny słd palony. Kolor ciemny brąz jak dla mnie za przejrzysty. W smaku czysta paloność i delikatna ziemistość. Polecam chyba najlepsze chorwackie pivo jakie piłem.
