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!

Cimbasso (1007) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Sampled from a 12 oz bottle at The County Line barbecue restaurant in San Antonio. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Not much aroma. Taste is thin, dominated by caramel, with a slight hint of roasted malts. Not much hop flavour, and only a little bitterness at the end. A watery and forgettable beer, and really nothing like as good as the Bohemian originals.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. The aroma is faint caramel. The taste is caramel, hay, and maybe a very small hint of roastiness. It’s pretty watery. It’s drinkable but borders on bland.

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, that’s 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, it’s okay, but only okay. It’s not scary or anything. Ordinarily I’d be disappointed, but it’s Shiner, so I don’t 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.

Bottle - Pours black, beige head. Refrigeration taste... along with scorched pancakes. Very mild. Meh.
