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!

Cool, a new shiner. Good or bad, it still has that ’shiner’ flavor inside it. More in the palate after you have a swallow, if youre use to the flavor of their bock this will seem similar. That drops the rating for me a bit, because I want something a little stronger, even though i love their beer. Going back to the strength, its not as strong as you might expect. Shiner has a way of packing alot of flavor into a beer, yet retaining a thin body. Some may like that, other may not, but the beer is a little to thin for this style. Its basically a SamAdams black lager, but not as good. Im still rating it fairly high, because its damn good no doubt, I just expected a little more.

Poured a little lighter than expected, more of a caramel color. Exhibited sweeter notes but still was quite enoyable, would buy again.

Black-red with a head that quickly fades leaving a dark cola appearance. Dank saaz hop aroma though crisp. Easy malt and European hop flavors meld together. Easy-drinking, mildly pleasant.

This beer should be better. I am a fan of schwarzbier, and while this one is decent (it beat’s the very common Kostriker hands down and the Rahr is terrible!), it doesn’t stand up to Schulteiss or even the Sam Adams Black Lagers. A little bit too much roasting going on here. A little burned, , which gives this a not so pleasant after taste. Still good though, and Shiner should keep this around.

Dark Brown with an average off-white head. Aromas of malt and chocolate. Malty taste with a little roastiness.

Light aroma of rye bread, malt and chocolate. Pours an almost black color but head disappates pretty quickly. Chocolate and malt but with a little chalkiness. Acidic and watery.

Shiners best yet. I found a couple of these in my cooler after a party. I’ll try any Texas beer once. This ones definitely worth repeating.

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.

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.
