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!

(bottle) Dark almost black with tan head. Aroma of roast almost smokey malt. Flavor is roast malt, hints of molasses. Schwarzbiers are hard to find - this is a great example by Spetzl.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head which dissipated quickly. Smells like a roasty, malty and lagery. Taste was roast malt, maybe a little burnt. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin with some carbonation. This was so-so. It’s a lager. I bought a six-pack of this so my friend who wishes I’d have "normal" beer would have something to drink during the NFL conference championship games. Since he is a lightweight, there was enough left for me to rate one and still have some left for the next time he comes over. Ha!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Clear dark with small tan head. Dry malty/roast y nose. Malty taste/body. A decent dark beer but I prefer Shiner Bock.

1/03/2008: Shiner Bohemian Black Lager pours a dark bronze-brown color with a somewhat quickly dissipating tan head. The aroma hints at roasted malts and caramel. The flavor is somewhat dry and contains watered down roasted malt and traces of something resembling molasses and/or licorice. The body of this beer is medium-light to medium and it goes down quite smoothly. This is a decent beer that isn’t too exciting but is easy to drink and has some flavor albeit not a lot...

12 fl. oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #121 for this beer...

On tap at Ashford pub. Pours a very dark brown almost black color with a medium tan head. The aroma is a roasted malt and coffee. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a smoke flavor and black licorice. Enjoyed this black lager.

vyvvy (3949) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Pours very dark brown with a crimson hue and large fizzy tan head. The aroma has 7-Up, dark malt, light cocoa and lots of effervescence. Medium creamy body with sharp carbonation that does a good job of staying out of the way. The flavor starts with dark sweet malt, milk chocolate and medicinal fruits. The finish is sharp with peppery spice. An okay beer.
