Lev Black Lion - Czech, 4.7%, 500mL, can’t figure out bottle code


There is a spoiled fruit & light lactose mix in the nose. That’s not great. F: A lovely clean maltiness w/ dark biscuit. But then a weird medicinal finish. There is a bad start & end but middle ain’t bad. May be old, can’t tell code.

Stopped at my local and found they had a doppelbock that just came on tap. PERFECT!

It ended up being a pale doppelbock (like a big Maibock), so it didn't fit the category but it was excellent. Big bready malt with a hoppy finish, kind of like an imperial Helles.

Local place finally got their Schwarzbier, General Schwarz, back so I grabbed a crowler.  Hoppier than I remember but not so much that it dominates the malt.  Nice and sticky with a great bready aroma.  32 ounces of 5.8% goodness.

It’s nice that the schwarz has become a bit more of a popular seasonal across the country. I remember a time when finding a domestic schwarz was super rare, it was Saranac and barely anyone else.

Had Kostritzer Schwarz and I am reminded that I keep forgetting how drinkable and flavorful this is for such a commonplace beer. I had a 330mL capped bottle from a random store. However, they sell 4-packs of tallboys for $6.99 at my local beer shop. Real steal for that price. If I had to pull a lager lifestyle, this would be a staple.


That's another one I forget about from time to time.  I've seen the 500 ml 4 packs as low as 4.99 here in the recent past.

Picked up a 4-pack of cans today.  Regular price is still 4.99 at my local store. 

Refreshing beer with light mouthfeel and a very clean finish.  Less roasty and less sweetness than the Titletown Dark Helmet. A real bargain for $2.50 a liter.

Had one of these on Friday. Super drinkable.  Would revisit for sure.

Picked up a 4 pack of Landbier Dunkel from Shliling out of NH.  These guys know their lagers, and this is no exception.  Dryer than I expected, but ultimately it worked.  Goes down super easy, was hard to not immediately grab another after I finished one.

They also have 4 x 500 ml of Benediktiner Helles for $4.99.  I will drink a shit ton of that this summer.

Honestly not sure.  The shop nearest me gets as much of it as they can, I basically haven’t shopped anywhere else since the pandemic started.  I’ve popped into TW a couple times (primarily for these threads) and I don’t think I’ve seen it there, but I can’t be sure.  I’m not really tied into the beer shop scene in NoVa anymore, but if I was you I’d call Norm’s.  If they don’t carry it you probably can’t get it north of Richmond.

I drank a crap ton of this 2 summers ago.  Still a very solid beer, but I think that batch was a little better.  There is just a tiny bit of off flavor in the finish, maybe a little metallic?  Barely enough to notice, still a great beer. Surprising amount of body for a 4.8.

The beer was so bad and I was so uninterested I didn’t even take a pic. You had me searching high and low. Turns out I actually had it a few years back and rated (different label). Sucked then, as well.

Zlatopražske Dark

Love Zywiec Dark. Haven’t seen it in a while, though.

Just got Norm’s newsletter for the week. They do in fact get Shilling. I don’t know if they’ll have any of this left or not. You might also look for Modernism, their Czech dark, too.

Had 2 beauties last week.

Monument City (a local) Campfire Series Doppelbock
I was into it, not just a sweet mess lager. Can't remember too much but would buy again if I had the chance.


Pardubický Porter
This Baltic Porter was phenomenal. Look for it in the Euro lager section. I am so happy I tried it thanks to these threads. It was less than $3 for a 500mL bottle. Not super fresh but still drank good  :banned: Clean lagered dark malts with nothing off-putting. Super quaffable despite being almost 8%. Could have put down another one right away if I had more.

Gout flareup set me back for a week or so, but I drank the Schlenkerla Marzen on Sunday with no ill effects. It was fabulous, as usual.

Will target the Schlenkerla Doppelbock tomorrow evening.

OK, I 'll be buying Xingu more often.  This stuff is fantastic.
inspired by this post, I picked up a bottle recently as well.  Completely agree that this stuff is stellar. One tends to overlook this beer b/c it typically sits in the import section surrounded by less than stellar stuff.

Stumbled across this while search TW for bocks, couldn’t resist including it.  First time I’ve seen this one, and only the 3rd beer I’ve seen from them.  This was very good, great even.  Not super surprising though, given how good their ofest and Pilsner are.  At this point I’ll drink anything Ayinger.

Currently drinking a Trodden from Decidious Brewing out of NH.  Forgot to get a pic.

I may be slipping, but the beer is on point.  Perfectly balanced roast malts, smooth mouthfeel.  Honestly feels more full bodied than it’s 5%.  That might bug me if I was drinking this out in the sun, but on the couch right now it’s perfect.

Moonlight makes some great stuff. When I was in Santa Rosa probably ten years ago, I enjoyed their beers as much as Russian River!

When I was in college I used to drink it all the time.  It’s been 20+ years since I have had it.

Am I going to be let down...that is the question
Should we take a cab home, Jesus?
Shit man, we can hoof it from here.
I know you can walk on water...
But can you walk on this much beer?

If you like well made traditional beers, you'll probably be good. I gravitate a lot towards Live Oak locally. Well made German styles all day.  :ale:

Back in my early beer days and Live Oak Hefe was in the top 25 on BA, a group of locals and myself would split a keg of the Hefe and bottle and trade bombers of it. It was a great deal for us and the beer still kicks ass. One of the few Hefes I ever drink.

They have a Pre-War Pils that they released for brewery, draft and specialty beer stores that is my favorite beer right now.

This is a fun brewery and a fun take on the style.
