Holy foam up! This is the most over-bubbly thing I've had in a long time. It foamed all the way up my glass.

The color is brown. The foam eventually dissipates. Aroma is yeasty funky and spunky, but only mildly so. The taste is malty, but with an odd burnt spunkiness. It's hard to describe, but it is as if this were a bad bottle.

The mouth feel is foamy - too foamy. Still, it was an experience, just one I don't care to repeat.

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.
