3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a pleasant spiced beer that reminds me of Viking Juleol. Nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, and while still cold; eucalyptus. Thin and light; almost refreshing.

330 ml bottle from a beer shop in Prague, Czech republic. Clear brown color. Tan, not very lasting, head. A bit sour scent, not very pleasant for me. Higher than average mouthfeel. Medium to medium high bitterness. Taste is spicy as of Christmas type spices.

Supposedly has 30 herbs in it. It shows b/c the CLOVE taste was overwhelming. Medicinal. Herbal. Weird. That pretty much sums Black Hill up. Try it for the weirdness. Comes in bottles and was enjoyed at Prague’s Pivovarsky Dum.

Bottled(330ml). –on brochure about this beer is written following text: …produced according to the original recipe from carefully chosen domestic raw substances and extracts from 30 herbs, so what to tell about beer with 30 herbal extracts??? very odd beer, dark golden colour, little head, aroma of cinnamon, ginger and lots of other (known and unknown) herbs, good spicy flavor, finish is similar to medicinal syrup. I think that this beer aperitif idea deserve higher and better rating

Amber coloured with an ok head. Spicy aroma; cinnamon and allspice. Spicy flavour, tastes a bit like ginger bread or maybe the Czech schnaps Becherovka.

Yellow, small head. This beer is pretty spicey and peppery. I like the idea, but it is not executed with enough power and resolve. Could take more, a bit too thin.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow-amber gold; very thick & stable off-white head. Very spicey nose, ginger and bog myrtle, pepper and Paradise seed. Typical gingerbread taste, sweet, extremely spicey (all the above + a dash of allspice). Light to medium bodied. Very caramel-sweet aftertaste, but the ginger keeps ruling. Somehow, this is not quite beer anymore to my taste. I’m not overly fond of this liquid gingercake, and every sip made it more repulsive; couldn’t finish the bottle.
