4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Kiev 2016) 750 ml. bottle split by 2 at Klaipeda. Murky brown amber with little off-white head. Nose is sweet compote, dates, dreid fruits, raisin, touch rain water, kvass, bread, caramel, sugar. Taste is wort, sweet dates, raisin, heavy bread, kvass, sugar, rotting wed fruits, dates, low ditch water, leaves, caramel, sugar. Low carbonation, touch watery in the back. If you like non-industrial kvass, dates & dark bread you will love thing, I can see this not appealing to most flavor preferences here, there is definitely a crowd for this, I find it it lovely, the crowd is not the RB one, shame about the leaves, mold & ditch water bitch in the finish, without that, I would have definitely ranked this one higher, definitely enjoyed this one.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, shared by suurjuust, thanks! Pours amber with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is diacetyl, caramel, malt. Flavor is malt, diacetyl, hint of fruits, some smoke, and caramel. Overall: didn’t enjoy it. It’s probably because I really dislike diacetyl.
