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

johndoughty (4133) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with a pleasant malt and caramel flavour. The body was a bit thin considering its strength which is my only criticism. Nice to try a different style from the Czech Republic. A nice beer.

Bottle at the Pivkan festival in Zagreb. Almost black body tinged with amber, tan head. Caramel and dusty hop in the nose. Dry bitter caramelly taste, maybe some notes of coffee. Better than the three Černa Hora beers I’ve had before it, not bad.

rauchbier (3639) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2003
Bottled. Deep ruby red, almost black. Initial creamy off white head that drops to a thin cover of bubbles. Muted aromas of caramel, roast barley and berries. Full bodied and sweet in the mouth, fruity with caramel and hints of coffee. Becomes dry and chalky in the finish with some roastiness lingering.
