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!

Bottle - I enjoyed this more and more as I drank it. Earthy aroma. Subtle flavors in the initial taste which opened up to soft malt flavors with hints of vanilla and coffee. I think the light malt flavor really let the hops shine here. Excellent hop use in a schwarzbier.

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 🍺

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..

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

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.

Bottle. Roasty, bit of choc, malty sweetness, nice enough. Little bit of spice.

Brown pour, bit of foam. Aroma is soft, roasted, hint of chocololate. Taste is easygoing but not watery, you can feel the roast but there is not too much of it. Aftertaste is short, nice and drying. Schwarz is not really my favourite beerstyle but I guess this one has been executed quite well.

Thanks ShoulderBroken for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing coffee brown and barely any foam. The nose shows subdued round malts. The palate is fully carbonated and medium bodied showing mostly lager flavors of simple malts and slight black sugar flavors.

Dark brown color. Fairly non description nose with some adjuncts. The mouth is light with some roasted malt character. Slightly acidic, but mainstream accented

12 oz. Bottle poured into pint glass from sampler 12 pack. Quite delicious. Dark malt gives way to nice hop notes. Very drinkable.
