COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2008
My Bottom Line:
This basic strong lager offers but some honeyed alcohol and candies to the flavor seeker. Far from the best offering from this brewery.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam shrouds the honey blond.
-The nose is very tame and not alluring.
-A vague fruitiness leaks from the honey.
-Some bitterness rises in the finish.
-Is it me or has this brewery gone commercial in the last few years?

On tap at Pivovarsky Klub, Praha.

Bottled, thanks to FatPhil! Malty, alcoholic aroma. Light-red orange. Taste sweet, malty. Quite tasty.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle, from restaurant in Shanghai. Amber-gold with not much head. Bland caramel malt aroma. Easy-going, good body with low carbonation. Sweet fruity malts, toffee, and caramel. Unexciting but good enough.

ogivlado (8108) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 17, 2010
Bottled 330ml. -15.30 plato; funny! Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, lively carbonation. Moderate malty, slight hoppy and fruity with notes of alcohol near the end. Bitterish sweet finish. Nothing special here. 6.3%

FatPhil (17078) - 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%.

MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 17, 2010
Bottle, 6.3%. Clear amber colour. Small frothy white head. Sweetish flavour, some rough hop notes. Not so bitter, but a bit rough, still.

Bottle @ Brugmansia/Fonefan Tasting, April 2010. Pours clear golden with a small off white bubbly head. Nose is grain and toffee. Medium bodied. Warmth from alcohol. Flavor is sweet of alcohol and caramel.

2.5
motelpogo (8031) - 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

2.5
omhper (25740) - 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.
