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!

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 isnít 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.

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. Itís a basic attempt at the style, nothing to really make it stand out, but itís drinkable.

Metalchopz (2327) - 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 Iíve had."

gkeh (220) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Dark brown pour, healthy beige head on this one. It provides excellent lacing. Aroma is toasted malts, mild pine hops on the nose too. Taste is cocoa, coffee, chocolate, and toasted oats. Thin mouthfeel, easy to drink. Pretty good overall.

Poobah (282) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - SEP 12, 2014

GenDV138 (1474) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft at Hill Country Barbecue Market in DC poured into a mason jar, 16 ounces Iím guessing. Dark brownish black with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, light dark fruit. Tastes of caramel, sweet malt, dark fruit, light roast. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Solid and better than expected.

puboflyons (2176) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. This pours dark brown with mahogany hues bubbling up to a long lasting, soft tan head. The aroma is dark and mildly smoked with a butterscotch, caramel malt note. The body is thin to medium. The taste has a nice dark, caramel malt backbone with only a mild bitterness to touch it up.
