Halfling_4132 (40) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Dark clear beer with an almond foam. Aromas of rye bread, malt and sesame seeds. Very thick and oily on the tongue and mouth. Pretty flat, light in body and watery. Simple taste of malt flavour. Drinkable but not overly exciting.

lokis333 (216) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - DEC 16, 2015
Clear dark color with thick coffee foam. Aromas of bread, malt, sunflower seeds and in general like dark beer. Palate, light body, very sweet and oily texture, leaves nice sweet finish. Taste of rye bread ansd sunflower seeds, very light somewhat watery and sweet. Overall, tastes more like gira/kvass than beer, would say more alcoholic version of it. Not bad, simple, sweet and plain.

villevav (377) - FINLAND - JUL 18, 2015
[2015-07-15, Rabocheostrovsk] Tummanruskea, vaahtoaa runsaasti, suurikuplainen vaahto. Tuoksussa makeaa mämmimäistä maltaisuutta. Maku niin ikään makean mämmimäinen, hiilihappoisuus vähäistä, ohuehko runko. Kotikaljamainen kokonaisuus.

austejaph (57) - LITHUANIA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottled. Very dark beer, looks nice with medium head, no visible fizz. Smell is full of the smell of malt. Palate feels sweet, second, the little touch of bitter taste, and the final aftertaste left the sweetness on the tongue. Overall, reminds the taste and feel of the kvass. The beer with no bright notes, matching with food.
