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!

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2008 beer pours to a dark tan foam that quickly dissolves, is pitch black and very little aroma to it, very faint smell of roasted malts, very thin beer and rather flavorless to me, aftertaste was the only plus, quite refreshing

Pours a light black color with very little head. Tastes a bit thin and very flat. No real flavor to note. If you like their bock, this is a drinkable but lesser beer.

v64 (134) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2008 I like this one, and Iím glad they made it a regular. Pours dark as Coca-Cola, little to no head, thick smoky flavor. Strong roasted sensation, almost coffee like. A little watery. Not bad, though.

Dark reddish-brown color. Roasted malt and earthy burnt sugar aromas. Favors of cola, burnt coffee, and smoky chocolate to some extent. Finish is well-rounded and mild with some dry hops. Refreshingly crisp and mouthwatering in a lighter style that proves Shiner can actually make a good product.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Pours deep brown, almost black, with ruby edges when held up to the light. Head is small and dense and dissipates to a few bubbles with almost no lacing. Main aroma is of sweet malts with a little bit of coffee thrown in. Not a lot standing out in the smell. Light malt taste up front with a bit of dark fruits and coffee in the middle. Hops are present in a crisp finish. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with a bit of a carbonation twinge on the tongue. This may not be the best or most complex dark lager Iíve had, but it is very drinkable. Iíd actually buy this again.

ebrowner88 (123) - Rice, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Pours a cherry coke black. i finger head and descent lace. Not much of a nose. Less sweet then SA Black Lager. Malt is very pronounced. Very nutty flavor with a lager mouthfeel. A very good beer.

CanIHave4Beers (3790) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Even through this cold I can detect the roasted coffee aroma that permiates from this brew. The color is a pretty opage black, with a tight and small head. Flavor is nice enough, with light coffee flavors, acompanied by hearty bread flavors, with just the lightest of yeast frutiness. The beer is easy drinking but a little soda-like with carbonation.

3fourths (8885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2008
12oz bottle pours medium dark brown with a light tan head, settling out quickly. Smells downright terrible, with a wet cardboard, stale leather and mothball smell. Tastes is horribly overdone with this mothball/old coffee/leather deal, and the body is incredibly weak and watery. Tastes like chewing on styrofoam and old, damp, used coffee filters. Awful.
