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.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2008
330ml bottle.
Rich orange, no head. Fairly bland aroma - malty, sweet, and a bit boozy. Pretty good full-bodied sticky body, but some astringent hops. Taste a little boozy after it warms a little. However, not bad for 6.3%.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 1, 2007
bottled. pretty good for a czech strong lager in that it just seemed like a normal czech lager. light vanilla aroma, golden colour, quite smooth but without any really distinct flavour and a lightly bitter finish

omhper (23483) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2008
Bottled at Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Clear golden, small head. Fruity and somewhat ashy. Sweet and juicy with medium body. An excess of sweet malt makes it a bit syrupy. Despite a quite bitter finish it would have needed more hops to balance it fully.

drpimento (3128) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Shoot, just when you think you found a winner - Poured with small to medium sized, cream colored head that mostly fades quickly and a little lace. Color is a clear polished brass. Aroma is sweet malt and a little hop. Flavor, except for one massive exception, is not like the usual Euro strong lager: enough hops & carbonation to balance the sweetness. The exception is in my face metallic flavor. Totally dominates all else. Body is decent and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and therefore a dumper.
