Japan’s favourite dark beer. Brewed in Osaka, Asahi Black is made from three different roasted malts. This gives it a rich, nutty flavour and makes it incredibly smooth-drinking. Unlike other, more bitter dark beers and stouts, it’s brewed in a process called bottom fermentation, which gives it a subtle, sweet edge and smooth 5% abv.

Munich style says the bottlecap. You wont find Tokyo style beers in munich. too soon. Looks OK and has really some munich Dunkelbierstyle. rather dry, some hops and burnt malt, it makes a suitable overall impression. In terms of finesse there is still an untapped potential.

The scent is quite empty. The taste is metallic, soy sauce and a little coffee. Slightly bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. Empty beer. Sadly, too. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Zarkam (531) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2014
334ml bottle from Alko Arkadia, cola brown colour, small frothy mostly lasting off-white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of roast dark bread, cookie, molasses and light coffee with light spicy hops. Taste is initally balanced and moderately acidic, turning into a lightly bitter slightly burnt finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Fairly simple and easy to drink dark lager that still is distiguishable as one.
