Origin of name: based on the date of the first official written report of the existence of the brewery from 1530, when the brothers TAS and Jaroslav Černohorský of Boskovice shared the property and mentions the malt-house and the brewery. A special Moravian beer made with Moravian ingredients – Černá Hora spring water, barley from the fields of Southern Moravia, semi-early red hops from the area around Tršice.

Taste: this beer is characterized by its excellent head, golden brown color, and outstanding vigor and fullness. It is distinguished by its subtle well-balanced bitterness and slightly sweetish character.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2007
(33cl bottle) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized, not very persisting foamy white head. Sweet, slightly buttery and bready malt aroma with a subtle fruity and shy herbal hoppy touch. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour towards the finish, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Robust malty base, bready and minimal honey-fruity taste; malt-accented, slightly herbal hoppy finish. This is style-wise a pale Bock if you ask me and a decent one.

Tap @ a corner pub in Brno.
Pours deep, clear golden with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has viniousness, apple, grainy malts and weak grassy hops.Even somes vanilla notes peeping through. Full and fat mouthfeel. Vinious flavour, fat, chewy maltiness. Weak bitterness. A bit too malt-centric and too alcoholic, but still very drinkable.

Biggish white head. Light amber body with vigourous carbonation. Grainy syrupy papery aroma with buttery notes. Sweet grainy fruity resiny taste with spicy peppery caramel notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel with some alcohol heat. Full body. Dry fruity peppery aftertaste with light citric notes. Nice, drinkable (thanks to sufficient bitterness), and interesting.
