Brown, small head, aroma of grape juice, caramel, flavor of grape juice, caramel, sourish, mild, light bodied. hawthorne00 (4193) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2016
Huge PET bottle. Clear brown, no head, soft drink-like bubbles. Aroma is pretty inviting - bread, sour cherries, cheap red wine, malt vinegar. And then it is a bit too sweet really. But there’s some berries and enough of a hint of acid to make it refreshing. Really a soft drink, but pleasant and has some complexity. Cthulhu (1031) - MARSHALL ISLANDS - APR 4, 2016

Plastic bottle shared at Leighton’s. The Cyrillic text translates to ’Kvas Monastirskij’. Dark mahogany brown, clear, still, small bubbly tan head dissipates quickly. Aroma is raisin, toffee apple, fruit cake. Body is medium, soft carbonation, tooth-coating sugars. Taste is raisin, fudgey, melted icecream - chocolate or Neapolitan, toffee-ish. Tastes pretty nice but it’s just so tooth-rottingly sweet. A lot better than coke. Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
