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

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 11, 2009
Bottled. Deep amber color with light brown head, and some lacing. Moderate aroma of dried fruits and some rough barley. Quite thin mouthfeel with nuts, cereals, barely toasted malty feel. If i’d drink blinded i’d think this is a pale or a semi-dark lager. It leaves some nice spicey hops in your tounge for a moment. Not a bad beer at all, but seemed too thin and average for me.
