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!

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 (3623) - 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 (8701) - 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.

Strykzone (5817) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2008
Quite dark with a one finger tan head that does not last. Aroma of roasted chocolate, coffee, and anise. Flavor is toffee and dark chocolate. Small amount of hop. Slightly fizzy. A nice subtle roasted malt beer. Very enjoyable and a pleasant surprise.

The little Spoetzl brewery in Shiner has been doing some pretty interesting things lately. Turning one of their anniversary beers into a full time product is one. This black lager pours deep brown, nearly black. Forms a nice head which dissipates after a brief visit, but the lacing remnants are nice. The nose on this beer is very potent. Shiner definately has a distinct ever-so-slight sulphury nose, but this also adds roasted corn, burnt coffee, and... is it toffee? Mouth feel is light, watery. Was expecting something thicker. But the taste makes up for the mouth feel. This is song on the tongue of molasses, dried dates and roasted coffee. It is not a punch in the teeth. From the color and pour one would expect this to be an overpowering brew, but it is softer, and eminently drinkable... think I’ll have another.

Nephilium (1556) - Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2008
Slightly sweet aroma, with just a hint of roast hiding in there. Pours a dark ruby with a thin tan head. Flavor is a hint of sweetness, blended with some roasted notes, and a touch of hop bitterness. Very drinkable.

guzzler67 (1577) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Dark brown appearance with an average size tan head and nice lacing. Appealing roasted malt aroma. Taste is mildly bitter, modestly hopped, but the emphasis is on the roasted ,malts. Decent start but finished thin with little distingishing characeristics. A simple pleasure, inexpensive and accessible

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 17, 2008
Pours dark brown, burgundy when held to light, with a thin fizzy head that diminishes quickly to a ring of bubbles clinging to the edge of the glass. On the nose is smoky toasted malt with a faint, sweeter chocolate note in the background. Light-bodied with fine, assertive carbonation and a fairly short and mildly dry finish. The flavor follows the nose, more-or-less, with a lightly sweet and grassy-hopped finish. While not really a great example of the style, this is quite a bit better than its ubiquitous cousin, Shiner Bock.
