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.

bottled. actually black, light head with a brownish tinge, quite one dimensional, just some chocolatey malt and no real finish, it just peters out

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2008
EBF2008. It’s a red-brown beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of candy sugar, sweetness, malt and light licorice. The flavour has sweetness and notes of candy sugar, light sweet coffee, sweet licorice and caramel. The sweetness is a bit too strong IMO.

Definitely smooth. Aroma is identical to Guinness stout. Not bitter, and only slightly sweet. A little roasted malt flavor. Could have a stronger flavor.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear warm orangey brown with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and raisins. Medium-bodied with roasted malts, dried fruit and perhaps also overripe fruit. Dry and somewhat sulphurous finish. 140908

cazort (559) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2008
(Bottle) Aroma of caramel and slightly roasted malt. Mildly sweet, and mildly bitter. Only very weakly hopped. Carbonation blends well with the overall character of the beer: mild but slightly coarse. Overall, not terribly interesting.

gfolivares (67) - McAllen, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Pours a deep black/brown with a tan head. Nice appetizing aromas of caramel, cocoa, and dark bread. Light-medium mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Wounderful chocolaty malt taste gives way to sweet doughy finish with hints of dark fruit and coffee flavored toffee. Although the taste is a somewhat light interpretation for a schwarzbier, it is refreshing a easy to drink making it an excellent session beer.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle at EBF08. Weak cardboard flavour. Almost clear very dark brown colour. Roasted flavour, mild, hint of cardboard.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle (EBF2008)
Coca-cola aroma. Lively carbonation. Rich malty burnt body, but some cardboard too. A hint of chocolate later. A tad sweet, but not out of the bounds of Schwartz sweetness. (Oh, the comment in my Iki review was a troll, by the way.)
