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.

Den virker lidt tynd i smagen. Eftersmagen vinder meget. Undergæret mørk øl.

Drinking out of the bottle. Smooth, roasted malt flavours with some mild hop and earth notes. Not bad at all!

330ml bottle at home. Pours clear brown, thin, short-lived tan head. Aromas of light roast, liquorice. Taste is more liquorice, light sweet note. Decent body, long finish. Not bad.

Flaske 334 ml. Flot sort farve, god duft, smager af karamel, ristet brød og lidt frugt, kulsyren er godt afbalanceret, en ganske god dunkel af en asiat af være.

Bottle from 99 Ranch Market: Liquid appeared a dark brown nearly completely opaque with thin fizzy formation of foam on top. Aroma is mild with a faint whiff of lightly roast malts not authentic to true German Dunkels but good enough to spark my interest into how these malts were pulled off. The flavor of the beer was satisfying and not offensive by any means and drunk real smooth. Roast malt profile in the drink is balanced perfectly by major/macro brewer, so yes, impressive clone of Deutschland Dunkel. I wasn’t happy with the price of over $13 for 6-pack though.

Bottle shared with Mr_H a deep Brown beer flavour is treacle charcoal some dark roasted malts provide a sweet roasted coffee and liquororise back bone but it fades quickly and finish is weak and watery

Rating #1035- March 22, 2014 - Bottle from Chateau Gab - 5% - Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is mild coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable for a light, roasty lager.
