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!

Dr. Phil drinks Shiner, what else can you say. Deep ruby blackish pour with aroma and flavor of dark chocolate, roasty toasty malt, slight molasses, almonds, and blackberry. Not terribly complex, but very smooth and quaffable.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Initial impression of appearance - looks like rootbeer. Pours a deep clear brown with some reddish tones. Fizzy brown head of foam, which disappears almost immediately. Sweetish malt in the aroma - a little brown sugar as well. Drier beer - subtle flavors of roasted malt and baker’s chocolate. Hops for balance (not much are needed). A mild roasty flavor in the aftertaste is nice. Not quite medium body, soft but lively carbonation. Not an outstanding beer, but overall a pleasant beer. Well worth the $2.98 I paid for a clearanced sixer.

A good aroma, looks nice. Flavor is simple and sweet, not too bad. Not real complicated or sweet, but decent enough. One of their best beers.

Bottle. Light brown color, moderate head, somewhat lacy. Corny aroma, some hops, maybe cocoa, molasses, vanilla? Didn’t like this one....thin, fizzy, tastes like a mouth of alka seltzer and grain. Bletch...

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with decent off-white head, nice lacing to bottom of glass. Excellent roasted flavor andbalanced hop bitterness. The best lager I have ever had , period. I heartily recommend this to all lager lovers.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Bottle pours a nice dark brown, good malty characters, lighter body, no hop prescence. Its not too bad, not too complex but its the best brew by Shiner in my opinion.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2007 Wow, this one caught me off guard, as I wasn’t expecting too much, but certainly this was above average within the style. The appearance was brown-black, very nice initial head, great retention, even a good bit of lacing. The aroma was a little strong on roasted coffee, but decent touches of licorice in there, light bubblegum (which I kinda like in this style). The flavor followed suit, again a little roastier than most schwarzbiers (slight ash aftertaste), but this finished crisp and dry. Mouthfeel was a little bit thinner than the best of this style, and it didn’t have the grassy hop balance of kostritzer, but heck, I liked this anyway. I’ll return for sure at these prices. Cheers, Shiner!

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle Dark pour with small head but decent lacing. Light aroma of malts and a bit of fruit and chocolate. Same with the flavor. First couple seemed way overcarbonated, later ones seem very light carbonated. Still very thin. Good beer, but not excelent.

This schwarzbier pours a deep reddish black color from a 120z bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty, chocolate, fruit and caramel. A medium to light bodied schwarzbier. Malts are chocolate, caramel and sweet. Hops are herbal and earth. Lively carbonation. Not very roasty malts. Perhaps a touch thin. Crisp and clean. Not bad, but kind of falls into that generic dark beer category. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
