In the US, called BrouCzech Dark.

Pyrope or Bohemian garnet stones were randomly collected in our territory by ancient Celts. It is a stone of all-binding fire, passion as well as purity of heart. However, it is generally known as a stone of love. Thanks to its typical colour, its name has been used metaphorically in connection with the colour of dark and semi-dark beers. Granat from Nova Paka is a dark sweeter lager with quality rich foam that is suitable for mixing pale types; alcohol 5%.

0,3l on top in Klodzko, Poland. Black color, small tan head. Smells strong of spicy, grains, yeast. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Tastes of caramel, some spices, light sweetness, a bit bready, herbs. Finishes with bread, sweetness and spices. Decent enough, didnt like the smell so much, but taste is nice.
