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%.

crossovert (7201) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
500ml bottle. It ours a dark brown with a foamy off-white/tannish head that dissipates quickly with little lacing. It smells really good. It has some caramel and cocoa underneath a fine blast of earthy, herbal noble hops. It stings the nostrils almost, very therapeutic in the smell. The taste is not quite as amazing but it is a solid Dunkel. IT is sweet, rich, and chocolatey with some caramel and a nice subtle noble hop bite. It is easy to drink, would be good on a hot summers day and a sweet but refreshing beverage. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-20-2011 23:13:33
