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!

A bit bland for a black beer, but has some nice sweet taste. Dark in color, but not cloudy. Tan head, not very thick. Nice beer, but nothing amazing.

Very dark but clear brown color, with a tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and a little molasses. Flavor of toasted grains.

TURDFERGUSON (4017) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 Bonus Bottle from trade with Hopscotch. Thanks Ericl! Pour is staight up black yo with a inch thick, little-bubbled, off-white head. Fades realtively quickly. Boring smell-roasted malts, blah, blah, blah. A little coffee, cocoa, molasses and roasted malts in the flavor. Easy drinking, but not something I want to waste my liver or time with again. Texas Sucks...yeah Iím messing with Texas.

jake65 (2881) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2007
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 youíre really creative. Unimpressive.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Not much of a Scharzbier, but more drinkable than the other three Shiners that Iíve 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 flavorís fairly straightforward, sweet roasted malts with dark caramel. It needs more hops to balance it out. Okay for a dunkel.

DocLock (8497) - 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 bakerís 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.
