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!

Pours into a glass a dark, dark brown, almost black like cola. Has a very thin head. It’s a smooth, sweet coffee brew with a hint of chocolate finish. Somewhat bitter.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2008
12oz bottle. Nearly opaque ruby brown-black, with a small light brown head. Faint nutty, caramel aromatics. Toasty malt flavors, tinges of earthiness. Some chocolate and caramel, with an herbal hop component. Some bitterness in the finish with residual toasty flavors. Mouthfeel is light, somewhat dry.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Tasted 2/23/08. 12oz bottle. Dark brown and almost opaque. Moldy khaki head. Toast and caramel aromas. Medium bodied with a bright crisp and sweet palate. Punch of coffee. Finishes mildly sticky and pleasantly coating. Bright effervescence. Nutty and fuggy flavors. Zesty with a mild yeast character. Toast and coffee. No Diacytyl, which is refreshing.

Haslinger (866) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Pours a pitch black, rather thin tasting but with a good smoky flavor. Definitely one of the best Shiner beers I have had but I wouldn’t buy again.

greedycheater (80) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Light, malty nose of mild coffee and caramel. Virtually no head, diminishing during and immediately following the pour. The body appeared thick and black with very little light allowed to shine through. The taste is the best. A lightly acidic start with a malty/salty finish, almost like coffee. A noticeable body on the tongue that is oily and soft with a slightly metallic end that is not sticky on the lips. A very good beer overall, easily enjoyed with or without food.

A solid Texan beer. Pours out a nice dark brown color with a small off white head. Aroma was nice and malty. Flavor was very much the same. I liked this beer. nice job

mjg74 (2632) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Bottle from BevMo. Dark amber/copper in color upon pouring. Roasted malty aroma, with a little chocolate and coffee. Decent roasted coffee qualities. Pretty quaffable.

HerrBier (14) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Another very drinkable beer from Shiner. The chocolate and coffee flavors were very noticable. But, like all Shiners, it was watery and a tad thin. For Americans, a great beer though :) This one is a step ahead of all their other offerings save for the Dunkelweissen. It goes well with food but is not an after-dinner-beer, imo.

marcus (7085) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 22, 2008
This black beer poured with a thin tan head, eliciting a strong malty aroma. The flavor is pretty thin for a dark malty brew, but it is mellow and reasonably tasty.

Goodgrief (1829) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Jan. 2007 - Pour was chestnut brown with nice head which dissipated quickly. Aroma was strong coffee with a touch of chocolate. Flavor was a coffee infused lager with hints of chocolate. Not extremely full or rich, but nice nonetheless.
