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.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 19, 2007
Can. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and molasses. Body is watery. Flavor of roasted coffee, sweet malt, cocoa, and somewhat smokey. FInish is a little bitter. Definitly want more body in this brew. Not too bad, though.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Thick, creamy tan head. Near-black color with light red/orange highlights. Sweet aroma or roasted malts, cocoa, and lactic acid. Flavors of roasted malts, cocoa, a nice smokiness, and a lactic acid kind of sourness. A bit thin and not as rich as I would have liked, but the beef-jerky-like smokiness of this beer makes it interesting. Not too bad. The best of the Japanese "Kuronama" beers.

Lubiere (10451) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
A dark brown beer with a thick compact moka head. Lightly sweet chocolate aroma, faint, and dissapointing. In mouth, a rather thin schwarzbeer with dryish malt, metallic notes, not much more to say. 330 mL can from Japn, 1 year old. BB 07-2006.

omhper (19950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2007 Canned. Dark brown, very lively head. Aroma of syrupy roasty malt and rice. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Rather mild with light notes of licorice. Some interesting flavours, but has a general industrial boldness that takes the edge of it.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 18, 2007
Bottle, dark cola-like colour with a filmy tan head. A slightly roasted aroma, sweet caramal (like cola again), but with an unfortunate metallic tint. A very bitter and dry palate with a little hoppiness, but no real flavour.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 11, 2007
beer pours a very pretty black-tinted ruby-red (rather like a very ripe bing cherry), with a nice, off-white head that retains and laces well. nose is rather mild, with sweet caramel notes and perhaps a very light chocolate note. flavor is very clean, with a starting caramel maltiness that turrns into a distinct licorice note in the finish. overall a very nice beer that is quite refreshing and easy to drink.
