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!

Been drinking this for a long time and never actually got around to putting in a review. Probably would have rated this higher had I not more of the premium black lagers. Poured form bottle into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with an initial thin light brown head that fades to almost nothing. Aroma isn’t strong but smells a little sweet with some roastiness. Taste is a little sweet upfront (much like Shiner Bock) and has a slight roasted flavor. Light on flavor compared to other black lagers. Slight lingering roasted flavors. Average carbonation that leaves the palate cleanly. Very drinkable, especially for a black lager. Not much to talk about but would be a very good beer to transition people in to more different craft beers, especially if they are familiar with Shiner Bock.

Nice roast flavor and maltiness. Malty aroma. Smooth drinking with dark color. Could be a little over carbonated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a dark brown like coke, little head. Aroma is mild of coke. Taste is a little bitter like lime, cuba libre. Palate is heavy with little carbonation.

Black but not too heavy on the tongue. I like the roastiness to it but it overwhelms the actual hop flavors and aromas. But, you know the hops are present since they make this beer balances and drinkable. I can see why my buddy likes it.

Beerathon (1330) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Black with flecks or red when held up to the light. Thin khaki head with some lacing. Caramel, roasted malts, lager-like hops. Drinks easy, but nothing special.

12 ounce single bottle from a Shiner Family Six pack purchased at the local Harris Teeter. Pours a nice dark brown color with a little bit of head. Aroma is very malty with some chocolate and coffee notes. Taste is similar to the aroma and is very refreshing without being too filling. This is one of Shiner’s finer beers.

Shiner brews all of their beers light to style. Bohemian Black Lager is not as chewy as I like a scwarzbier to be. It is also more brown than black. It’s a basic attempt at the style, nothing to really make it stand out, but it’s drinkable.

Metalchopz (2444) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Purchased in Vermont, part of their tester mixed-pack. Pours a dark cola-brown colour with a creamy beige top, good retention and some creamy lacing. Aromas of mild roasted malts with hints of vanilla and caramel. Again, light roasted malts with watered-down caramel malts. Not really sweet, not bitter. Just a decent lager that goes down smoothly and with darker edge.

12 oz pours a beautiful dark brown and has the aroma of coffee and chocolate...however the taste is very bland, dry, and watery

"Different label these days. Porter-like pour. Aroma a little dusty, but underneath a good dose of roasted malts, coffee, toffee sweet. Aftertaste great...chocolate, roasted malts, a kiss of smoke. Smooth, thin. Possibly the best Shiner I’ve had."
