COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle & can: Pasteurised.
Ingredients: Dark roasted malt; hops; rice; maize; Asahi’s pure cultured yeast.
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.

Bottle from Waitrose. A fairly bland schwarzbier, roasted malt, a touch metallic and a bit of smoke. I didn’t enjoy it.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2007 Best Asian beer I’ve had yet, which isn’t saying much. Black color, very toasty-roasty sort of flavor. Fairly safe tasting but nothing special.

Bottle at home from GBBF07 ... Deep brown black ... toasted oats and roast malts ... oats anf fruit ... roast malts ... tasty enough but unusal and distinctive.

Had really high hopes for this one but was pretty disappointed. The nose is non existent, which is sad because its one of my favorite things about a schwarz. The taste is mellow and non offensive but is way too safe. I found that I actually preferred the Asahi Super Dry to this brew.

I like this beer, and wish it were more widely available. A good representation of a Schwarzbier, with low carbonation and medium body. Taste of roasted malts and a slightly smoky aftertaste.

Black and slightly smoked.No carbonation and poured with a medium head.Medium body and a slightly roasted aftertaste. Impressive but not outstanding.

Poured Black with about an inch of short lived light beige head. Had a malty smell, and a bit of a metallic odor which dissipated as the beer warmed slightly. Taste was of a dark, sweet, roasty char flavor, but not harshly so. Had good a carbonation level with a small, nice lingering dark aftertaste. Overall the body was somewhat thin, easy to drink, and I can see this being a very drinkable and delicate dark beer to go with japanese food. I liked this much more than the only other Schwarzbier I’ve had too.
