Bottle shared at the Cad’s 10th Anniversary Tasting - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to The Peter. Pours a compelling clear amber with a frothy tan head. Big sugary bread and caramel aroma. A heartily sugary flavor follows, with plenty more bread and caramel, some sugar syrup, berries, brown sugar, toffee. Light in body with average carbonation. Syrupy finish with some nice caramel notes, ripe berries, maple syrup. Great kvass.

Massive bottle at The Cad’s 10 yr Shindig. Thanks to the Peter. It pours dark brown with a thick tan head. The nose is crazy sweet, slightly spice, damp cardboard, brown sugar and sticky caramel. The taste is pretty similar....so very sweet, sticky, treacle, sugary, brown bread, caramel and toffee with a sweet finish. Light body and average carbonation. Jesus.... too sweet.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share at the Cad’s 10 year celebration. Thanks to Peter. Impressed that you can buy a litre of this for €2.50. Black, decent foamy tan head. Aroma is strong with rye bread and sweet toffee. Body is medium, low carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is very, very sweet. Molasses, liquorice, dense sticky rye bread concentrate. I generally dislike sweet beers, but I thought this was enjoyable. Fun to try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle, shared by larsga. A layer of tan bubbles over a clear mahogny body. Smell of sweet dark bread and tinned fruits. Some fruity acidity and spices as well. Heavily sweet flavor. More dark bread, sweet cookies too. Also dark dried fruits and a certain acidic fruitiness balancing the sweetness. Oily texture. A very well composed Kvass with super drinkability.
