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.

ffbot (170) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 18, 2015
The look of this is astounding: blackish brown, huge puffy head that laces everywhere and looks cake-like. Minimal smell - the head traps it in - but coffee, dry roasted, bread and grains. Taste is very smooth. No bite, no real bitterness, no sharp coffee or roasty taste. Just balanced, pristine. But don’t ya want a little character to your black brew?

Cimbasso (551) - - SEP 4, 2015
Sampled from a 33cl bottle. Pours black with a hint of brown at the edges. Beige head and medium carbonation. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste is of burnt malts but it quite quickly fades, leaving quite a thin aftertaste. Mouthfeel is also rather thin. A very clean beer, but a little bland. Good initial taste, but a little disappointing.

Bottle - deep ruby red with a foamy fizzy brown head. Aroma of treacle, hints of roasted malt, a little cocoa. Taste of chocolate, hints of molasses and dark fruits. Medium, dry body and low carbonation.

Jenner707 (47) - DENMARK - AUG 1, 2015
Nice black color with dark brown top. Aroma dominated by the rosted malt...In this case I wouldn’t see this as a con. The aftertaste has the same roasted dark taste, makes you think of licorice and coffee. Last the carbonation is way too high very sad,now that the rest of the beer was that good.
