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

[bottle from Galerie Pivni] Dark orange-brown, clear, fizzy, clingy, little islandy patches of white. Plenty of toasted malt fills the nose combined with even some smokiness and a nice sour, burnt aroma. Limited hops aroma. Sweet and smooth coffee malt flavour with significant bitterness which lasts in conjunction with the coffee flavour throughout. Notes of mint. Medium body, a bit mouth coating, moderate carbonation.

suprchunk (2743) - 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.
