thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Bottle. [thank you motelpogo]. Slightly pale orange brown with a thin film head. Aroma is very special. Lots of herbs. Basil, cardemum... more. It smells like walking into a perfume/soap shop. Flavour is slightly bitter, dry and herbal. Not a particularly pleasant experience. Interesting, but not very good. 7/2/6/2/5 = 2.2
Rerate from bottle in Brno:
Pours the same pale orange, but maintains a fine, frothy offwhite head. Aroma still resembles a soap shop, there are clear peppermint notes that I didn’t pick up before. Flavour is okay, some clear medicine notes - though the peppery edge is well executed. Better than my first rating. 7/3/6/3/12 = 3.1

Prague-07. Nothing special here. Had amber colour with aroma of cut grass, nutmeg and flowers. Taste was too sweet with spicy notes.

imdownthepub (15333) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
Bottled, pasteurised, 300ml from Pivovarsky Klub. Mid amber with white head. Highly perfumed, soapy beer, like a lemon washing up liqued. Some apricot on the finish. Not very pleasant.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2006
Bottle (from Dum). Herby spicy nose. Hints of liquoricey Becherovka and too much ginger. Ginger carries through to finish and is joined by some light caramelly malts. A bit thin and spicy nature dominates.

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.

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2006
Orange/whisky color, ok white head. Cinnamon and cardamom aroma. Flavor from cinnamon, sweet and with a finish bringing some hops.

gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2006
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.

austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 3, 2006
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.

ogivlado (8108) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 20, 2005
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

pilsnerrogge (2997) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2005
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.
