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!

Found this one bottled at Binnys in St. Charles, Illinois. Clear, very dark brown pour with a wispy head, Sweet, malty nose, with a hint of coffee. Malty and yeasty taste, very nice, with a little bitterness. Very good all around.

asedzie (819) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours ruby-brown with thin brown head. Nose is caramel, grainy, slightly raw smelling malt, a tiny touch of coffee, with lightly herbal and grassy hops. Flavor is toffee and lightly tosted bread, light sourness and very mild herbal hop flavors and a touch of bitterness. Also getting hints of metal. Palate is bubbly with some fullness, but overall little bit too thin and watery. Pretty good for this brewery and a interesting interpretation of the style.

bhensonb (14989) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of toasted caramel with some light hop. Near opaque brown/black color with a head that entirely disappeared in seconds. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor of roasted/toasted malt with balancing noble hop. Swarzbier it is. Not complicated, but tasty.

(Draft at Boondoggles, Seabrook, TX): Pours a black, dark brown color, big creamy, cream colored head, somewhat diminishing. Malty nutty taste, not very strong. Watery dusty taste, some malts. More bocky taste than stout. Nutty. Somewhat fruity taste, like cherries. Tasty.

Shiner makes some pretty beers. The bock is especially brilliant. Anyway, this black lager has a nice look, black like a porter but not as opaque. Not much of a head. Nice smell of hops and malts, almost caramel-like. I really liked the flavor. Malty with a bit of bite from the saaz hops. Finishes smooth like all good black lagers do. On tap at the Flying Saucer in Houston.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2008
12oz bottle. Aroma had a good roasted coffee on the nose. Black body with decent head that went flat quickly. Flavor was overcarboninated thin sweet moderate bitter beer. Watered down. Easy on the palate because its like drinking black water.

Wha happen...?? I must have gotten a bad line... no brewer would intentionally make a beer this bad/sour/flat. The only thing is... Ive had a bad Shiner line MORE times than a good one. Wussup wi dat? On tap at Flying Saucer AND Ginger Man.

34 oz. draft. I asked the waitress what was on tap and she rattled off all the normal macros and Texas beers, then mentioned this one but shook her head and said it was bad. Whenever that happens at a non-beer bar, thatll be the first beer I order, since the bad review probably means it doesnt taste like all the others. Anyway, near black color, no head...at least not by the time it reached the table. A bit of a roasty flavor, maybe coffee or molasses. Some of those same things are in the taste with a bit of sourness in the finish. Kinda sticky on the finish, though not too much so. Pretty crisp beer overall. Not the greatest thing ever, but Id order it again if the selection was limited.
