3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. The aroma is quite nice, slightly toasty. The color is what you would expect from a black lager with a decent thin head. It has a good initial taste that quickly disappears. It is a flavorful lager that is on the lighter side.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pouca espuma e nao persistente. Aroma com um q de sabão. Sabor pouco marcante, com torrados e baunilha. Nada demais.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated on 1/31/08. Have to say this is my favorite shiner product so far. It pours out a black body with a tan head, slightly malty with a slightly bitter aftertaste. I prefer the sam adams black lager to this one however it costs about a third less. worth trying.

Malt and bittersweet chocolate are the loudest points in this beer for me. Not bad, well balanced, nothing too awesome but a very enjoyable beer 🍺

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep mahogany, lasting creamy khaki head. Aroma is light cocoa, toasty base malt, some light fruitiness. Flavor has more character. More cocoa, some nice light roastiness, dark fruit, some toast and caramel. Semi dry. Bigger light to lighter medium body. Maybe the best Shiner brew I’ve had, but I am a sucker for schwarzbier these days..

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with quickly dissipating lacy head. Aroma of burnt toast. Taste of carmel and bread, maybe a little coffee. Slightly sweet, very little hops. My first schwarzbier so take that as a caveat

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Got this as part of a variety pack my Mom picked up in Texas, while visiting my Uncle. I am not a fan of dark beers and this is just not my thing. However, it is not as bad as I was expecting and I would guess that those who like the style would enjoy it.
