COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Translated from Russian:
Ochakovskiy Kvas has long ago won the love of the consumers and it has become the standard of this Russian bevarage. In the summer of 2004 "Ochakovsiy Kvas" has changed the look of its packaging, now it's filled into bottles that resemble kvas kegs. Furthermore, for the first time it has been released in aluminum cans - this is Ochakovo know-how. Kvas "Ochakovskiy" can also be tried in the bars and cafés, where it's found in kegs.

2 l PET bottle. Pours very dark ruby, no head at all. Aroma of grainy malts, chocolate and bread. Taste is very sweet, light sour nutty malty end. Not for me.

Marduk (2742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2013
Tap. Very dark copper color. Small head, stays. Sweet, massive bread, raisins, almonds in aroma. Bready and sweet flavor. Just like I like my kvas. Texture is bit watery, but still good.

MichaelAwesome (4100) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2013
Bit sour with a heavy bread and grain aftertaste. Sweetish in the middle. Nothing special, more a bit strange but drinkable.

Can. Hazy deep brown-black colour with no head and medium to sticky body. Nose of chocolate cake and malt. Taste of light malt, nuts, bittersweet chocolate and dough. Light sour finish. Surprisingly easy and also quite nice to drink.

edpeg (828) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
2,0 l bottle. Pours dark brown , slightly unfiltered, with nice thick creamy beige long-lasting head. Aromas is malts, roasted malty, citrus, and general fruits. Plate is light thin watery, with fizzy carbonation, which flattens out pretty quickly. Taste is malts, dark bread, sour dough and citrus fruits. Finish is is flat and slit dry and refreshing., From array of several kvasses tried this is better one and almost tastes like home made kvas. It is sour, with decent bread flavor and no overly sweet, balanced. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2012
Dark brown colour, almost no head. Malty aroma, light mocha, roasted malts, caramel and sugar. Quite sweet flavour, malty. Malty finish, sweet caramel.
Nice commercial kvas. I do like квас a lot, but have no idea why it can be rated here, as it is basically a Russian soft drink . Come to think of it, a lot of Russians also consider beer to be a soft drink, so I guess it does make sense after all.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2012
Originally reviewed: 4/4/11. Pours a deep garnet-tinged cola color with a small sheet of beige lace on top. Left with just a ring around the edge. No lace left behind. The nose is explosively-full of licorice and molasses. Powerful stuff. I can’t say I dig it. The mouth is a little flat, it’s like hours-old Coke. Light carbonation on the tongue. This beer is sickeningly-sweet! Dark sweet tea, sugar, red licorice, syrup, and sugar. My teeth hurt after drinking this. Still, I wanted to give this rare style a try, and I can now say I have. Most likely won’t be revisiting this one anytime soon. Would make a great "wager" beer for my guys’ billiards night...

Bottle at DRBM. This stuff is sweet malty cola juice. Some hint of coffee. Yuck.
