Beer Advent Day 14 was another of the Spoetzl Brewing Company Shiner Beers, this time Shiner Black. This is the darkest beer Shiner brews and is the least favorite of their line for me.

I somehow forgot to take a picture of this in the glass but it lives up to the name of Black. About the only time I drink this is in the family pack or as a leftover from some party. It is good for a black beer but the flavor of burned wood just doesn't really do it for me. I am not sure what gives black beers that flavor but I get the same thing from Guinness as well.
If Black Lager is your thing, I would guess this is one of the better ones. It started as the Shiner 97 and was brought back as a full part of their line so it definitely has a following.
That is all,
