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%.

[I believe this is the beer I’ve had - mine was named Slawjanskoje Lagerbier - brewed by Nova Paka and weighing in at 5% ABV and looking like a dunkel] The color is caramel and it has a fluffy white head. The aroma is like plastic and the flavor is like metal flavored plastic. Yuk.

oh6gdx (23654) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2008
Bottled. Deep reddish amber colour with small beige head, which vanishes quite fast. Aroma is toffee, some nectar, roasted malts and red berries. Some mild vanillaish notes are also to be found a while after pouring. Flavour is not too sweet caramel malts along with some mild burnt sugar and red berries. Easy to drink brew, but at the same time quite enjoyable.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle. An almost clear, amber brown beer with a decent beige head. Nice aroma, sweetish, malty and fruity, with both dried and some fresh fruits. Caramel and some roasted malt too. Sweet, roasted flavor with dried fruits, some smooth coffee-like flavors and a little alcohol touch. A pleasant bittness towards the finish. Still, the aroma is slightly better. Medium to full body with a pleasant finish. A nice dunkel. (081002)
