COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin of name: This beer is named after its unique garnet red-brown color (darker than most dark beers). The color of Černá Hora Granát could lead its consumer to call it a "black beer". Taste: it is characterized by its fullness, sweetness and very dark color. A high proportion of Bavarian, caramel and coloring malt based on a longstanding recipe gives the beer its unmistakable caramel taste and markedly influences its bitterness. It is distinguishable by its good head and vigor. Has won 1st place in category of dark lagers upon competition - "The Golden Cup PIVEX - BEER 1999". Winning competition "Dočesná Žatec" in 1995 -1999 years

AshtonMcCobb (2939) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a chestnut brown with a red hue which makes it look like cherry cola. Nice generous head too. The nose has nettley hops with just a hint of chocolate. The taste has toffee, smokey nuts and biscuity finish. The palate is medium bodied with a rich creamy texture and a fresh and tangy finish. Overall, this is great, like a black lager version of an English bitter.

suprchunk (2345) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2012
Dark brown pour. Slight tan/khaki head that leaves a little lacing around. Malty aroma with some roasty backings. Little bit of a metallic presence noted. Sweet matliness with a nice coffee roasted flavor. The metallic presence shows up again in the aftertaste. Not annoying, but still there. Not a bad beer at all.

Szadi (7) - HUNGARY - MAR 1, 2012 does not count
Nem túl testes, inkább egy könnyed ivósör, de szerencsére nem tűnik túl vizesnek. Kellemesen édeskés, s közben visszafogottan kesernyés, a dunkelek/schwarzbierek között bőven megállja a helyét.

Derek881 (1017) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2011
I had this beer on tap in Prague. It had a dark brown color with a touch of an amber/red hue, and a huge creamy and foamy light tan head with good retention and a lot of cling. The aroma had some earthy hops with a touch of floral hops, along with some grain and cereal notes. It had a subtle sweet malt flavor, but was also somewhat bitter with a grainy/earthy taste component. The body was somewhat light with low carbonation and was a bit thin and a touch watery.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle @ Qingdao beer festival. Black with small but stable tan head. Great asphalt and coal malts. Dry but with a licorice twist. Flavors are dry with some bitterness in the finish that is dull and papery but flavorful at the same time. Slightly chalky. Lingering bitter finish is reminiscent of olive and fruit pits. Not herbal or hoppy in a traditional way at all. Tree bark, cola nut, seeds. Smooth malt character. Easy going beer.
