Poured from an undated 11.2oz bottle into a goblet

On the relatively hard pour, a white 1 finger head formed then receded to a ring around the glass. The body is a very dark, nearly black, red.

Aroma is a bit funky with strong dark fruity molasses right up front. Some fig notes merge with the molasses to make a very sweet Snelling concoction, with some light doughy notes. Smells like baking.

Taste is quite sweet, but more malty than the aroma would suggest. The molasses and fig sticks around, but a dark nearly porter like flavor is in the background as well. Vaguely reminds me of ovaltine.

Feel is close to soda with a light amd carbonated body and an overall drying mouthfeel that doesn't finish all that fast. Drinkable but not the most refreshing beverage.

Overall I'm not sure if I would spring for this drink again, a bit overly sweet, and molasses flavored. Reminds me a bit of sweetened wort.

This is my first beer (or rather, malt drink) from Israel and jumping to the conclusions I hope the rest will be better!
This kwass has faint malty smell that grows stronger that the drink warms up, the color is quite dark, almost black. However it tastes like a cola, quite strongly carbonated and sweet, really would taste exactly like a cola if it wasn't for that slight breadiness to it.
I could finish it up drinking but compared to the Russian kwass I had before this was a disappointment.

A: Dark brown with slightly ruby tinge, no head and its hard to see the little carbonation.

S: Malts, candy malts, near beer like.

T: Malts, candy malts, toasted malts, rye bread

M: Medium thick syrupy body, medium low carbonation.

O: My first Kvass, had in Israel Dec 3, 2013. Very much a malt beverage, really enjoying the rye taste and Russian style.

Poured from 330mL bottle into a dimpled mug -- my preferred kvass vehicle nowadays.

Appearance: rich, deep-brown hue with minimal head. There does not appear to be much haze to this beer, but it is hard to tell due to its very dark color. Not bad for the style.

Smell: sweet and quite malty; a lot more barley malt aroma than a traditional kvass. A hint of breadiness and raisin which fits it in with the style; actually not too bad.

Taste: sweet and rather bready. This has got the Grape Nuts character of freshly mashed barley. Decent enough, but a little bit monotonous.

Mouthfeel: light body with pretty low carbonation. Not too exciting, even for a kvass.

Overall: this is drinkable and refreshing, although a little more character would be nice.

Another beer I brought back from Israel a few weeks ago. This one by the big macro like company Tempo, with low reviews, so not looking good for this one, but we'll see.

Pours a nice fluffy/fizzy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly with just a bit of lacing, over caramel cola dark brown colored beer with just a hint of light sneaking through.

Nose is not great, lots of syrupy aromas and extract like syrups, cheap cola syrup, just a hint of malty aromas, light corn syrup and molasses, some corn husky and straw.

Taste starts really sweet, wow, hard to even continue... but I'll try. It's not too unusual for a Kvass though, which is pretty much syrupy water with like 2% abv. This is more syrupy flavors, corn syrup, light molasses, cheap cola syrup, lots of extracts and syrupy flavors. Again corn husk and straw flavors, and a light bitterness that I don't think is from hops, more from bad malt and syrup flavors. All that and it's still fairly watery. Finish is still quite sweet, slightly sticky and syrupy, light lingering icky bitterness, and more husk and straw.

Mouth is med bodied but watery, and syrupy, with decent carb.

Overall again this is just not my style. Too sweet, syrupy, extract tasting, straw and corn husk, bad bitterness that doesn't come from hops, but still watery. Don't think I'm going to finish this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my DFH tulip. Received from Tmoney2591 in Round 5 of the Blind BIF; thanks Kyle!

a - Pours a very dark brown color, almost black, with two inches of light tan ehad and moderate carbonation evident. Looks like it might be a porter.

s - Smell is pretty interesting. Getting some roasted malts, chocolate, burnt and toasted malts, and some light sweet sugar.

t - Woah, the taste is like straight up sugar. Insanely sweet, and some light roasted malts, chocolate, and again, burnt malts. Way too sweet; pretty hard to drink.

m - Relatively light body and low carbonation. Again, tough to drink because it's so sweet.

o - Overall I'm going to guess this was meant to be a kill shot. Smell seems a bit off, and than the taste was ridiculously sweet; pure sugar. Not something I'd look to have again.

Served in a glass mug.

I discovered this among a mountain of other kvass bottles at a nearby market and decided to share it on New Year's Eve with my Jewish buddy and his kosher-dining girlfriend. Good times. It pours a clear dark garnet topped by a minor bit o' dirty white foam. The nose is a light mix of root beer and light roasted malts. As somewhat weak as it is, it's still slightly better than most of the other encounters during the ongoing Kvass Kick. The taste maintains the root beer-ness, though now it's watered down slightly and has a new partner in fennel. The body is a heavy-feeling light, with a lightly fizzy carbonation and a kinda watery feel. Not sure why, but though this closely resembles every other kvass I've had, it seems slightly more drinkable. Perhaps it's the company...?
