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: APR 22, 2008 Draft: Black in color, small tan head consisting of tiny bubbles, Roasted malt aroma. Moderate carbonation. Flavor is of roasted malt, slight hint of pecan, chocolate and raspberry? Mouthfeel is bold, slightly creamy. Palate is strong, bordering on rough on the way down. Finish hangs around a little.

Very burned malt taste.

Very strong representative of the type. Great aroma that is steady throughout. Overall a very clean, refreshing take on this genre.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt and caramel and a hint of meat? Maybe pepperoni? I almost left that out, but I swear I get a hint of something and that best describes it. No, I am not eating pizza right now. MMMMM.... pizza. Please let this beer taste like pizza! Dang! It does not. It does however taste of toasted malt and slightly burnt coffee that gives way to a subtle sweetness finishing with tingly carbonation. Decent beer. B

My philosophy on Shiner (and Sam Adams) is the same as that of an El Camino. It does everything well but nothing great and this beer exemplifies the nothing great side. Watery with a half decent aroma but basicallly its a pissed away version of a good beer. Like if you started doing something good but then realised Entourage was on so you half assed it.

Moderately strong aroma of maple syrup and caramel. Cola colored with a thin bubble head and some lacing. Flavor is sour plum and coffee. Clean hop finish. Highly drinkable, nice!

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2007
smells like a malty sack of pennies. tastes like one too...? crisp, malty and refreshing with lingering licorice and iodine. decent beer but a lighter version of the real schwarzbier... and i can’t seem to escape that metallic taste.
