COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin of name: This beer is named after its unique garnet red-brown color (darker than most dark beers). The color of Černá Hora Granát could lead its consumer to call it a "black beer". Taste: it is characterized by its fullness, sweetness and very dark color. A high proportion of Bavarian, caramel and coloring malt based on a longstanding recipe gives the beer its unmistakable caramel taste and markedly influences its bitterness. It is distinguishable by its good head and vigor. Has won 1st place in category of dark lagers upon competition - "The Golden Cup PIVEX - BEER 1999". Winning competition "Dočesná Žatec" in 1995 -1999 years

0,5l bottle. Dark color with small beige head. Aroma of malt and roasted malt. Taste coffee, chocolate and honey, medium body, short bitter finish, very balanced. Excellent dark lager, one of my favorite.

puredelusion (423) - Lviv, UKRAINE - APR 26, 2015
0,5 bottle, brewed as a Karlovar Černý Granát. Pours dark brown color with medium, mostly lasting beige head. Good head lacing. Fantastic aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, chocolate and coffee notes. Medium to long astringent and chocolate bitter finish. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, oily texture. Awesome, balanced beer, despite it feels and drinks more like a stout than a dunkel. Enjoyed it a lot.

MarkoNm (2930) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours a dark brown color topped with quite some tan colored head. Chocolate aroma, slightly roasty with some coffee notes in there. Taste is mildly sweet, chocolatey with some raosy notes. Finish slightly roasty and bitter, but all very gentle. I like dunkels very much, and this one really proved to be delicious.

Bottle share en route to Cotteridge Convention. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head, Wood aroma and notes, not ba but nothing inspiring for me, like a dullish dunkel.

Scopey (15652) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to Fergus on the train to the Cotteridge Convention. It pours clear deep red-brown with a small white head. The nose is soft, sweet malty goodness, toasty brown sugar, caramel and mild spice. The taste is clean, bitter-sweet, cola, caramel, toasty, cardboard, mild toast and coffee with a dryish finish. Medium body and foamy carbonation. Smooth, balance and rather drinkable. Good Tmavy.
