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!

Nice reddish black color. No real head, it dissipated quickly. Roasted malt aroma and flavor. Really light on the palate. It’s not as heavy as you would think. Not that it matters to the rating but I like the new label design (grey on black). Nice brew overall.

11-11-07 bottle. Strange malty aroma that I can’t quite figure out. Strange appearance as well - it looks like Pepsi in a pint glass - so bubbly and carbonated it is unbelievable. Tastes similar to a regular light beer. Not metallic at all, but is weak bodied. Overall, this is just very average! It just doesn’t feel right drinking a dark beer that is so light.

This beer pours a deep amber almost black color with a medium tan head. The aromas are nothing special, I get that rice brew smell but a little roasted. Very interesting to say the least. On the palate it is a little dry, somewhat hoppy. No surprise here. Not a complex beer at all and quite lacking for a bohemian black lager, if you ask me. good thing I only bought one! Cheers!

Pous like a coca cola. Smell is dull cardboardy malt. Dull similar taste as well with a hint of roast malt in there too. Average body, with a bubbly carbonation. Not too offensive, but not my favorite beer or style. A bit better than their dunkel I thought.

I’m surprised this one’s rated as high as it is. Looks like a headless, watery stout. Has an unfortunate lager smell, which is nothing but malt with a bit of skunkiness. Palate is thin, yet somehow filmy. Flavor is malt with a bit of chocolate and maybe caramel. I detected a metallic flavor as well, but no real hop bitterness.

Very cool totally black label. Pours opaque with tan head. Resembles root beer. Aroma is corn and malt. Flavor has some tasty roast and crisp carbonated bite. Mouth feel is somewhat thin and watery, but tastes decent and is easy to chug. I like this better than their ever-popular bock.

Pours jet black, from all black packaging. More substantial than many schwarzbiers, great roasted taste... a good beer. 12 oz. bottle.

Well,they’ve brought this back,without the "97",it just says bohemian black lager now.When it came out the first time it was more full-bodied and tastier,still a nice black lager that goes down smoother than any other i’ve tried.They messed up by not ressurrecting 96 instead,it was truly unique,this not so much
