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.

From 12pz bottle to lager glass. Pour is a black color, thin beige head. Nose is roasted malt, biscuity, light hop. Taste is light bodied, mostly sour. Kind of a flat taste with a sharp finish.

Bottle. Pours nearly black with frothy head that lingers. Mild caramel aroma over medium carbonation. A bit thin for the style with limited flavor.

Pouca espuma e nao persistente. Aroma com um q de sabão. Sabor pouco marcante, com torrados e baunilha. Nada demais. BeerRenter76 (1019) - Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2015
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. thornecb (5952) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Pours mahogany tinged black into a shaker. Mocha head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Dusty cocoa aromas. Dry with sweet dark caramel and toasted nuts front to back. Medium length cocoa finish.
