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.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A red-brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with light roasted notes and a dry slightly bitter end, but the body is thin. A nice Schwarzbier.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2012 Bottle. Almost black beer with nice off white head. This soon disappears however. The aroma has some roasty notes but also a bit of metal. The taste is also a bit roasty, some caramel but it’s all a bit thin and metallic. Score 3.1
Subsequent rating also scored 3.1.

Bottle. Miniscule tan head vanished kind of quickly. Deep brown almost black color, vague light penetration. A bit of roast aroma. Smooth drinker, goes down easily. Sweet bitter chocolatey toasted flavor does not overwhelm. Carbonation just right. I’d drink it again.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2005
Bottle. Pretty much sweet brown sugary sort of stuff. There is some light toastyness and roasted malt. Pretty smooth and all the rest of it (drinkable etc) but its just a little too thin and sweet or something. An average schwarz.

Dredd (687) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2005
Burnt toffee nose, caramel flavour. Very clean and drinkable. It is also very well balanced, however, the head is a bit dissapointing.

JonMoore (1848) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2005
Nice looking black beer with a good sized tan head. Aroma has sweet roasted malts and some fruit. Taste is caramel, malt, perhaps some chocolate. Smooth medium mouthfeel. Very interesting, nice and drinkable beer.

RedEft (154) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - APR 14, 2005
Soy sauce colored with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and malts, but surprisingly faint. Tatse is similar to the aroma, with a disappearing finish. It’s decent.

Brew4Dug (138) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Well balanced at the start, but fades quickly and finishes bitter-sweet. Too thin bodied when compared to the other versions of the stye that I have sampled to-date.
