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

Moravius (381) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2014
Flasche von Tuzex, Berlin. - Schönes Kastanienbraun mit rötlichem Ton. - In der Nase warmes Röstmalz, Karamel, würziger Aromahopfen. - Der Antrunk ist überraschend schlank und frisch, wenig karamelsüß, dafür mit einer angenehmen fruchtig-pikanten, zart säuerlichen Note über gutem Röstmalz. Mild rezent, samtiges Mundgefühl. Die fruchtige Frische bleibt bis in den Abgang. Klingt trocken und mit etwas Mokka aus. Im Nachtrunk anhaltende Röstmalzbittere und wenig aber ausreichend krautiger Hopfen. - Überraschend schlankes, fruchtiges Dunkles, sehr erfrischend und süffig.
