Nicola Hmelnoi pours the typical kvas appearance similar to a flat cola. The body is a deep brown and the head fades immediately.

In the nose it's molasses-like with a bit of bready rye.

In the mouth it's light bodied with a dextrinous edge that seems to stick to the sides of the mouth, tongue, and teeth. The carbonation is always low for the style, but this one's got a light bit of zest that gently tingles the tongue.

The flavor is a little more tart than many versions of the style, but it still displays the common rye bread and molasses characteristic. It's even got a hint of spiciness to it. And although the mouthfeel suggests extra sugars, they're not really present in the flavor. Sure, there's a bit of sweetness, that's the style, but it's not sticky of cloying as some examples can be. It finishes fairly neat and clean with a short lingering note of raisin and black bread.

Overall, not a bad example of the style. It's refreshing and flavorful. Nice.
