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

Tap @ a corner pub in Brno.
Pours deep mahogany with a small, creamy, beige head. Fine lacing and okay duration - nice looking beer. Aroma is sweet, very lightly roasted, light chocolate. Fine mouthfeel, surprisingly dry. Flavour is nowhere near as sweet as the aroma (which is a very good thing). Quite ashy, hard roasted with a fine, sweet chocolate finish. Very nice and very drinkable.

pivnizub (10618) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2006
Bottle (Pivni Galerie Praha) Deep ruby amber coloured, sweet-malt, caramel and a touch of molasses in the nose, even a tinge of floral hops is detectable; robust bitter-seet flavour; drier, deceptive malty-bitter, almost chocolatey finish, even some hoppines in the aftertaste. A well rounded, very well balanced pleasant pivo.............

Draught at Dum Vina u Zavojy, Praha - though bloody expensive!
Served as "Cerny Hora Granat 12 tmavy lezak".
Very dark brown color, fluffy lasting brown head. Acidic malty scent. Acidic metalliic malty taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Paid 70 kcz for a 30 cl draught beer, the second most expensive beer for me ever in Prague. It wasn’t worth it...
At least it gets a new rating.

Draught at Cernohorska pivnice in Brno on May 18, 2009.
Slight bit hazy dark copper to brown color, fluffy light brown head. Malty and huge butterscotch scent. Butterscotch, malty, sweet taste. A bit thin mouthfeel, rather low CO2. Low bitterness. Herbal hoppy aftertaste.

Draught at a bar close to the tram stop Břevnovský klášter in Prague. On May 21, 2015.
Clear dark brown to black color, tan head. Sweet, roasted scent. Butterscotch taste, also roasted. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
