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.

WVHouseofBeer (815) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2012
A pretty standard dunkel. Pours dark brown with a small khaki head. Aromas and flavors of caramel, dark chocolate and coffee. Body is pretty light but the finish is nice; slightly sweet. Overall a surprisingly respectable effort from Asahi.

350ml can from Tokyo Liquor, Wyndham St, Ak, pours dark with a brief head, roasted malty aroma & a smooth thin bitterish sweet taste that is actually pretty good

Hard to find, but worth tracking down. Warm nutty aroma, followed by a rich coffee taste.

MichaelAwesome (4070) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Mit McTapps geteilt und im Tesco, Ryde geholt. Sehr stoutig, leicht bitter und vom Kaffee nebst malzigen Röstaromen dominiert. Tendenziell mit einer milden Süße zum Schluss. Unspektakulär, jedoch mit Charakter, aber das Industriebier kommt ganz klar durch.

McTapps (4079) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Pours out of the bottle ( bought at Tesco in Ryde) in a deep black colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and roast. Taste of roast, leaves, woods, malt, straw, bread and grains. Dry-bitter finish. Drinkable but nothing special.

Lillie (6) - DENMARK - AUG 2, 2014 does not count
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!

allmyvinyl (3349) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2014
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.

DennisKirk (153) - DENMARK - JUL 19, 2014
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.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 8, 2014
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.
