Beer Friday. Lobkowicz, Baron


 Well damnit! I sure am happy we had a chance to sneak in a beer review as it has been a busy set off with no open days for rides most likely not until Monday. Waking up at around eleven or twelve every day is the norm coming off nights which helps cut into the day and destroy it as well. 

Oh I see you reading this being all 'judgy, judgy' thinking "why doesn't he just force himself to wake up earlier. 

I really wish it was that easy. With another week of nights coming I decided to just stay a piece of shit for my week off and not try and set back to days which has become routine around this time of the week resulting in more extreme tiredness. 

This brewery opened in1466.... Say what? Yes I said 1466, how badass is that? The brewery was purchased by the Lobkowicz family in 1474 when the brewery was a young eight years old. The brewery ran from that day on and was interrupted by those knucklehead nazis during the war. 

This was a very nice and easy one to pour. A respectable one and a half fingered head stood guard for a few moments then soon dissipated into a slight ring around the glass during the sips giving it a slight touch of class. 

Why I kinda felt I should have been wearing a white glove during this review. 

For a dark beer this one is very easy and tame. A 5.2% alcohol percentage keeps things reasonable and this one is a delight to drink. A slight toffee taste with caramel come at you suggesting this would be better enjoyed in the Fall? Or am I crazy? It is a bit heavier feeling is all.. I get hints of dark fruit too. A sweet smelling beer that is quite great. 

This is a great beer and is backed by hundreds of years of tradition. Go find some.

This beer gets 4 suds out of 5.
