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

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2003
This beer is a great mighty brew. It reminds me a bit of Vierzehnheiligen Klosterbock; a malty sweet and perfectly well-balanced beer. Camamelly and bitter at the same time. Amazingly complex! And very cheap!!! 0.5 $

Grima (2195) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2011
Pitch black color. Smells malty, very reserved, with hints of sweet coffee. Starts roasted malty, very recent and slightly bitter aftertaste. It has a really strong intense flavor, especially in the middle part is the aftertaste strong coffee-like.

Bottle. I remember tasting this first in Sternberk,CZ. Pours deep brown with an appealing red when held to the light. Nice beige head also. Light malty aroma. Flavour is light grassy hay hops and a touch of chocolate/caramel. Refreshing and easy drinking. Delicious.

MarkoNm (1739) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours a dark brown color topped with quite some tan colored head. Chocolate aroma, slightly roasty with some coffee notes in there. Taste is mildly sweet, chocolatey with some raosy notes. Finish slightly roasty and bitter, but all very gentle. I like dunkels very much, and this one really proved to be delicious.

Taste is sweet malty with roasted notes and caramel, brown sugar, chocolate. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry roasted bitter finish with some redisual sweetness. Quite drinkable.
