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!

All I can really say is wow... I love the dark color and the off white head. The smell is kinda just bleh, same old same old, but the taste is where it’s at... This is definitely the best beer I’ve ever had, so glad I took the chance on buying. Highly recommended

bottled - not a bad attempt at all. Nice roasted malt flavor with some chocolate thrown in there. Good color. Not much aroma. Not bad.

Very dark brown with a tan head. Nose has roasted and chocolate notes. Dry with medium sourness, burnt aroma. Light bodied and fizzy. Slight sweetness emerges as it warms.

Surprised this was a lager. Ale like, yeast, a nice porter like malt profile with a bit of darker malt as well. But still thin on the tongue like a porter. Slightly sweet. Dark cola pour.

Surprisingly good for a mainstream beer. Tan, short head, light bodied, kind of flat. Nice liquorish aromas with smoked notes. Short, alcoholic palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a decent hop aroma. Appearance- A black colored beer with a small tannish head. Taste- Has a nice coffee, malt and oat flavor. Palate- Alight bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a fairly dry finish. Overall- An average Schwarzbier, I really love Spoetzel Brewing but this one didn’t drive me crazy.

Shiner 97 makes a good first impression. The cola-colored body and tan head are attractive. I liked the smells of soapy lager yeast and faint chocolate, too. It all falls apart after that. The taste is completely underwhelming. Watery, thin, and flat. Unfortunately, I’d need similar adjectives to describe the mouthfeel. Black Lagers should be rich and unique (after all, you don’t see too many of them). This one is bland and forgettable.
