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

TheCametron (1901) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle. I remember tasting this first in Sternberk,CZ. Pours deep brown with an appealing red when held to the light. Nice beige head also. Light malty aroma. Flavour is light grassy hay hops and a touch of chocolate/caramel. Refreshing and easy drinking. Delicious.

AshtonMcCobb (3120) - 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 (2423) - 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.
