1L plastic bottle. Pours black with beige medium head. Aroma is sweet, some toasted black bread, rye, raisin, syrup. Taste follows the nose. It is quite sweet, some sugar sticks on the lips, but roasted taste won’t allow to be too sweet. Quite nice one!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
1l nice dark brown, tan not long lasting head. Sugarly aroma with rye bread. Strong caramel and rye bread in taste but bit sour taste cools down high sugar taste. Too fizzy.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very sweet and bready aroma and taste, something like finnish mämmi and cola mixed together. Palate is flat, and combined with sweetness, it’s not really my cup of tea.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
1L plastic bottle from Läänemere Selver.
Very strong bready and sugary aroma. Pours a very dark brown with a thin light-brown head that dissapears quite fast. Quite thik texture. Sweetness and malt with hints of bread in the taste. Too sweet to quench thirst, but otherwise not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 500ml (Selver, Tallinn)
Thanks Kairo! Deep brown color, vanishing head. Strong aroma of cyrupy black bread (Malax limpa), rye. Medium-bodied. Slightly sweetish, molasses, rye bread/black bread dominates. Feels more kvass than the most of commercial ones from the big breweries.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown, small, quickly disappearing head. Nose is very bready and malty, with burnt sugar notes. The taste is very sweet and malty, with some bread and caramel notes. Finish is slightly acidic and sweet. Palate is somewhat thick and oily. Pleasant when cold, otherwise it’s just too sweet.

4 Lovely deep red, large fluffy head

9 Only a thirst quencher when cold, otherwise too sugary. Pretty decent taste though, I did enjoy it.
