COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bohemian Black Lager is a rare and delicious style of beer, referred to in Germany as "Schwarzbier". Shiner Bohemian Black Lager remains true to this old-world style by using imported Czech Saaz and Styrains Hops and select roasted malts to make it our darkest beer. First brewed to commemorate our 97th anniversary, this Bohemian Black Lager remains true to the old-world heritage of the German and Czech immigrants that settled Shiner. Prosit!

This lager is distinctive, much more flavorful than most lagers, with a deep color and an average head. Delicious malt taste is well-balanced with the hops. It is clearly a step above most of the Shiner beers that I have enjoyed.

Mild aroma. A good looking clack beer with no head. It has a mild malty flavor that goes down smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Pirini’s Ranch. Pours a deep brownish black with thin off white lacing. Aroma is thin sweet malt, light bread and vague hop. Mouthfeel is thin and lightly carbonated with notes of sweet malt, light grain and a vague hop character. Not smokey or roasty at all.

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014
330 ml Botte Pours a dark brown beer, clear it seems, with a minimal sized light beige head. Coffee and roasted malts in the aroma, some dried fruits, and a touch of dark chocolate. A bit too carbonated I think, medium bodied and soft on the palate, quite dry as well, but with some sweetness. Not very bitter, some roasted malts kind of bitterness though. The flavor has roasted malts, dark chocolate, some dried fruits and coffee, both initially and in the end

Bottle. A- Coffee, cocoa, sugar, roasty, smokey. A- Black color, black liquid, tan head. T- Cocoa, smokey, coffee, slightly malty. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smokey finish. O- I was surprised with this one. I honestly wasn’t expecting much but the flavor was more complex and deeper than imagined. A solid beer from a brewery that predates Prohibition. Certainly something to be said for that. Odd they celebrate their 97th anniversary instead of waiting for 100th, but a great celebration beer, nonetheless.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear deep reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, a bit sugary, with some dark bread and light roasty notes. Sweetish flavor, mildly roasty, with caramel, nutty notes and a drier finish. Light to medium-bodied.
