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!

Sampled on 8/3/06: Pours a transparent dark copper brown with a thin, wispy off-white head. Has a smoky toasty caramel malty aroma. Lightly smoky and sweet malty body dries out quickly toward a fizzier finish. A decent brew, fairly true to style.

After trying Shiner 96 last year, I though 97 would be a huge improvement. It’s not bad, but a bit bland--like you’re expecting a ’kick’ that never comes. Pours brown, medium tan head. I agree with everyone who says this is one-dimensional. Somewhat bland.

I thought this beer was much better than the ratings, maybe because I like the style so much. Black in appearance with a thin pour. Flavor has a lot of sweet roasted character, not the bitter kind. Easy to drink.

A bit bland for a black beer, but has some nice sweet taste. Dark in color, but not cloudy. Tan head, not very thick. Nice beer, but nothing amazing.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 Bonus Bottle from trade with Hopscotch. Thanks Ericl! Pour is staight up black yo with a inch thick, little-bubbled, off-white head. Fades realtively quickly. Boring smell-roasted malts, blah, blah, blah. A little coffee, cocoa, molasses and roasted malts in the flavor. Easy drinking, but not something I want to waste my liver or time with again. Texas Sucks...yeah I’m messing with Texas.

Bottle: Dark brown / mahoghany with a medium tan head. Nose is mostly malt and dark fruit. Taste is one dimensional malty. Maybe some caramel and cocoa if you’re really creative. Unimpressive.

Not much of a Scharzbier, but more drinkable than the other three Shiners that I’ve had. The body is a clear, deep brown with slight red highlighting. Nice creamy tan head that laces the glass in sheets of suds. It smells of lightly roasted malts with butterscotch and a hint of chcocolate.The flavor’s fairly straightforward, sweet roasted malts with dark caramel. It needs more hops to balance it out. Okay for a dunkel.
