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%.

Brou Czech Dark: Not bad for a dunkel. The color is a reddish brown. The steady carbonation works hard to sustain a one-fingered light brown head. Both the aroma and flavor are a mild caramel with a bit of nuttiness. There’s also a suggestion of smoke and a light bitter hopping in the finish. Okay.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2005
A little more bitter than I expected from a Czech dunkel, a style not known for having hops in it. More roasty, too. Decent, just unexpected. I had hoped the beer’d be milder.

Bottle: Dark-red to dark-amber coloured, hazy, thin off-white head; sweet, caramel nose, not so complex, tinge of roasted malts; slightly sweetish beginning, full malty taste leading to a quite dry malty and clear hoppy (herbal) aftertaste. Well quaffable, but not so well rounded.
