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.

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.
