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

Egészen sötét vörösesbarna színű sör,aminek a tetején lévő hab világosbarna,vékony és hamar eloszlik csak egy kis fátyolt hagyva a tetején.Illata visszafogott,enyhén pörkölt magvas és karamellás.Íze keserédes,csokoládés,pörkölt malátás és enyhén élesztősen fanyar.Teste vizes és elég szénsavas.Utóíze kesernyés, neszkávés és kiszárítja a szájat.Könnyen csúszik de nincs benne semmi különleges.

Aroma of caramel, mild roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and grassy hops. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malt, follows by mildly roasted malt and grassy sourness, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate.

I had this beer on tap in Prague. It had a dark brown color with a touch of an amber/red hue, and a huge creamy and foamy light tan head with good retention and a lot of cling. The aroma had some earthy hops with a touch of floral hops, along with some grain and cereal notes. It had a subtle sweet malt flavor, but was also somewhat bitter with a grainy/earthy taste component. The body was somewhat light with low carbonation and was a bit thin and a touch watery.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2005
Tap. Clear ruby red colour. Medium, lacey head. Cohoclatey, coffeish aroma. Sweet, chocolatey taste. Not too sweet; not at all. Delicious flavour. Slightly bitter-chocolatey finish. This is really a nice and balanced beer.
