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 a very dark brown, almost black, with a vanishing light tan head. This is one of shiners better beers.

Bottle: Dark brown / mahoghany with a medium tan head. Nose is mostly malt and dark fruit. Taste is one dimensional malty. Maybe some caramel and cocoa if you’re really creative. Unimpressive.

Not much of a Scharzbier, but more drinkable than the other three Shiners that I’ve had. The body is a clear, deep brown with slight red highlighting. Nice creamy tan head that laces the glass in sheets of suds. It smells of lightly roasted malts with butterscotch and a hint of chcocolate.The flavor’s fairly straightforward, sweet roasted malts with dark caramel. It needs more hops to balance it out. Okay for a dunkel.

Dark almost black color. OK head. Nice malty taste. Did not inspire me. Not bad but not great.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2007
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.

pour is a black with a small tan head aromas of charcoal and brown sugar slightly bitter flavor with a good dose of toasted malts

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.

duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2007
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.
