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 dark red color. Light shines through, but barely. Has about one finger beige head, that is very short lived. When it goes away looks like cola. No retention, no lacing.

Aroma is maybe a touch of coffee. Light caramel. Really, thatís about it. Very bland, very much nothing.

Taste is light roasted malts. Light coffee. Light caramel. Pretty sweet overall. Very watery.

Mouthfeel is light bodied. Smooth. Watery. Not bitter. Easy drinking, sessionable.

Overall, itís okay, but only okay. Itís not scary or anything. Ordinarily Iíd be disappointed, but itís Shiner, so I donít expect much. I started the review much lower, but it has improved as it warms. A great introductory beer to a new style. A mediocre beer overall. I would recommend this only if one were afraid of darker beers. But for myself, I see no reason to buy it again.

From mix six. Dark, toasty malts. Some caramel. Tad thin. Wasn't as horrible as some shiner, but nothing special.

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bought at a market place. Pours dark with a tan head. Smells of licorice and a tad earth and maybe a hint of smoke. tastes of licorice and some dark chocolate. Palate was a tad watery. Overall? This is pretty much a staple at the local Shiner Texas brewery, simply better than a Budweiser.

Itís just not a decent Black Lager. The taste is far too light. Itís got a decent head but, it has no complexity. The taste quickly fades from the tounge and the beer is very watery tasting.

crhensel (145) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2016
12 oz. into pint glass. Poured with minimal head that dissipated quickly but left a wonderful black color. Taste was very very light and a little sweet. Surprising but refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
