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.

imdownthepub (11375) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2007
Bottled 330ml, pasteurised at Wagamama, Oxford. V Dark Brown with ruby hue, malty head. Smooth sweetish black lager, some deep roasted notes, but most covered by the sweet flavour. A little fruitiness, reasonable.

Lacing is Grade A ... smooth down the throat but a bit to cultured ... not the most flawless blackers but a good beginner .... " he’s mental for those snausages" ... drinkable but quite neutral...

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2007
Available from Waitrose in the UK. Ok. Not so black. Smooth, one dimensional flavour, that prejects itself in a very narrow range. You see black and you naturally think deep, rich and complex, not this. Smooth and to the point.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2007
Nose of roasted malts and cereal. Pours a black beer with a cream head. Body is thin. Taste is of roasted malts and not much else. Quite flat in fact. I thought it might be better.

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

jeg (114) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2007
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.

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.
