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.

Light roasted malt nose with some toasted caramel. Sweet but not overly so. Some weird notes as it warms: fishy and slightly natto like. Not bad overall though.

Tap @ Tokyo Bird, Sydney. Doesn't have the malt complexities of the German dunkels, but a good, lightish quaffing style, perfect for slamming back without thinking too much with good bar food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ffbot (264) - 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 (620) - - 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.

edsspoon (838) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
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.
