yngwie (13193) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle, 1.5ltr, at Anker Hostel kvass rating session 2014. It’s a clear, dark brown beer with some beige bubbles on top. The aroma has quite a lot of cola, as well as caramel and some wort. Not much rye bread. The flavor is too sweet, lacking on rye bread. Caramel, raisins and cola. Thin and soft on the palate. Short, sweet cola finish. Too sweet this one, but sort of drinkable. 140503

50cl PET at some pancake place in Riga. Pours clear dark brown with almost no head. Dark malty and bready aroma with caramel and notes of dark fruits. Sweet and bready without any signs of bitterness. Quite okay, but a bit too sweet.

Marduk (2579) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2014

edpeg (806) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2013
PET 1,5l bottle in Berlin, named as Tanheiser. Almost same label. Importer is Latvian, with Berlin address. Dark brown black body. Head is minimal but thick. Aroma predominantly bread, malts and some citrus and roasted malts. Palate is thin and carbonation medium crispy.. Taste is sweet, little tart, with strong malty bread. Porter flavor brings out very nice touch to this Kvas, and although the b flavors. Basis of the Kvas is similar to other (somewhat over-sweet), but this one stays drinkable. Recommended.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
Thin brown head. Slightly hazy deep dark red body. Earthy raisiny rye bread aroma with faint tomato ketchup notes. Sweet rye bread, honey and raisins taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, flat mouthfeel. Dryish roasty earthy raisiny aftertaste with spicy syrupy notes. Not bad, but too sweet and one-dimensional. (0.5l PET bottle, from Stockmann, Riga.)
