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

thewolf (11288) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Tap @ a corner pub in Brno.
Pours deep mahogany with a small, creamy, beige head. Fine lacing and okay duration - nice looking beer. Aroma is sweet, very lightly roasted, light chocolate. Fine mouthfeel, surprisingly dry. Flavour is nowhere near as sweet as the aroma (which is a very good thing). Quite ashy, hard roasted with a fine, sweet chocolate finish. Very nice and very drinkable.
