12 oz bottle purchased just a few days ago near brewery.

Pours dark brown, clear, with a modest size head that has good retention and leaves a moderate amount of sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is less attractive than hoped, with some earthy hop pellets and roasted grains. The flavor is similar in description but notably better and more complex.
Near medium body with medium carbonation.

O: not bad, but not up with, for example, better Czech versions.

On tap at holoday inn

The beer pours a dark, dull amber with a razor thin head that doesn't lace. The nose has a grain sweetness, notes of coffee and roast, but not much else. It drinks with a grain-forward sweetness with a touch of fruit and caramel, but very little bitterness. The mouthfeel presents a lingering grain sweetness, good carbonation, a mild reinforcing roast, touch of chocolate, and a little bitterness. This is a decent beer, but absolutely average.

A- dark chestnut brown with golden amber highlights. Decent creamy beige head and wavy lace.

S- roasty dark malts with hints of coffee and cocoa. There's also a tiny whiff of chocolate mousse and leafy hop aroma.

T- bigger on flavor than aroma. Smooth cocoa and coffee with just the right amount of roasted bitterness. Hop presence is mild to almost absent, but lends an earthy edge in the finish. Notes of soil, wood, and stone and a mild tartness.

MF- medium full body with zesty carbonation. Definite roasted grainy feel on the palate. Wholesome and filling.

D- I didn't expect much from this one, but I'm pleasantly surprised. A tasty flavorful brew that I could definitely drink more than one of.
