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.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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...
