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.

Mély aranyszín, fehér habkorona, ami szinte pillanatok alatt a semmibe vesz, és kiül a pohár szélére. Az illata meglepően komoly, a malátát azért rendesen lehet érezni. Az ízében is ezt érzem, elmegy a gabona irányába. Közepesen testes és kissé szúrós. Lehetne jobb is ha már a gyár ezt egyfajta "prémium" termékeként akarja forgalmazni, lenne rajta mit állítani.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 21, 2010
Mély, aranysárga színe van a tetején képződő hab pedig vékony, szivacsos és gyorsan tovatűnik. Illata édeskés, malátás és kissé savanykás. Sok maláta, sárga gyümölcsök, savanykás élesztő, kevés virágos komló, annál több mézes és alkoholos édesség és fanyar élesztő érződik az ízében. Közepesen testes és szénsavas. Utóíze édeskés, enyhén érezni benne a komló gyantájából is és van egy kis zöld füves mellék íz is. Nem rossz, de elég átlagos és nekem kicsit édesebb a kelleténél.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 21, 2010
0,33 l bottle, bought in a pub at Hegedűs Gyula utca 22.
Deep golden beer with a small lacing off white head. Caramel and honey, some freaky almond in the nose, light, moderated herbal hop. Medium dense body with caramel and honey again, some sourish yeast, herbal hop in the finish. I expected more.

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.
