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

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 $

Color - dark brown, almost black, to light - opaque. Foam = 4 - hearty, medium firmness, color cream. Aroma = 4.5 - rich, black patent malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate, hops are not felt. Taste = 4.5 - full body, good burnt bitterness, dry (taste like dry stouts), and hints of coffee, light sweetness in the aftertaste. Indeed, a great dunkel.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2008
On tap in a cellar bar in Prague. Very dark beer, beige head. Roasted malt, tast, bread crust when you forgot the bread in the overn for five minutes too long. A sooty sourness that plays around with sweet malt. Truly great.

Graphirus (48) - - NOV 21, 2013
A - Pours dark brown, almost black beer with a generous beige foamy head that slowly dissipates. Moderate lacing S - Strong roasted malts. Chocolate and coffee notes. I can detect some yeast aroma. T - Again roasted malts. Medium bitterness that stays for long. Maltiness is evident with some notes of caramel and toasted coffee. M - In the mouth feels medium-bodied, medium carbonation O - A very good Dark Ale with the right amount of bitterness to make it easy to drink and pretty enoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toasted malt nose, clear dark brown with a sticky tan head. Warm round chocolate and caramelly flavors balanced by a light hoppying. Good balace and a solid simple dark lager.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Dark brown colour. Hazy with a thin head. Sweet, sugary, caramelly aroma. Clean dark sugars and malts on the palate. Smooth, balanced, clean. This is well-made lager.

AshtonMcCobb (2314) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a chestnut brown with a red hue which makes it look like cherry cola. Nice generous head too. The nose has nettley hops with just a hint of chocolate. The taste has toffee, smokey nuts and biscuity finish. The palate is medium bodied with a rich creamy texture and a fresh and tangy finish. Overall, this is great, like a black lager version of an English bitter.

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
[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.
