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%.

Bottle at the 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours amber with a beige head. Grainy and lightly sweet, with some low floral and earthy bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and very drinkable.

tgncc (3025) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Don’t know why they made this a new style. It’s so fuckin’ boring. The aroma is malty, brown sugar, coked vegetables. The appearance is dark brown, slight translucence, off white head. The flavor is like the aroma, malty, brown sugar, cooked vegetables. The finish is noble hops, lingering sweetness. Medium in body. OK, nothing great.

Bottle at James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a clear brown body with off white lacing. Aroma is light malt, and nothing much more. Mouthfeel is medium to light with faint roasty notes, sweet fruity malts and a dirty graininess in the finish.

ads135 (3633) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Not a big fan of this one. Overly sweet, not enough hop balance. Caramel, toffee, and even some brown sugar. The aroma is malty sweet as well.

BeerSkull (1368) - SWEDEN - APR 21, 2012
Slightly sour smell and taste of roasted malt, caramel and hops. The taste has an unpleasant metallic and bitter tone. Not a particularly good beer!
