WVHouseofBeer (931) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Wow this really is just Asahi Super Dry with just a handful of chocolate malt thrown in to the mix. The flavor is not bad, there is just very little flavor present. Definitely the lightest "dark" beer I have ever had.

YantarCoast (485) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAY 28, 2015
330ml can. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Roasted malts aroma. Taste is roasted malts and brown sugar. Very light and similar to regular Asahi. Bit of a lame attempt at a dark beer.

TedE (500) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2015
334ml bottle into glass. Dark ruby red beer with thin tan head. Slight slight malt nose. Watery flat mouthfeel with mild sweet nutty finish. Disappointing and not one I will be revisiting.

RafeAU (395) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2015
on tap In Osaka. Little of the desired subtle dark flavours you should find in a schwarzbier. pretty ordinary. only slightly more flavour than the usual super dry. but look, it?s good for washing down your food, which is how you usually drink beer in japan. go for the suntory premium malts black instead if you want a schwarzbier.

evergreen0199 (2393) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Can from Yamaya, Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a medium off white/beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, chocolate.

Jado (657) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a dark cola brown with a sudsy tan head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aromas of raisins, caramel and citrus but all very light. Taste is light caramel and roast with a bit of a citrus zing. Very dry - as promised. Clean finish with a little fruit in the aftertaste.

GIJOE (927) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours quite dark, almost black, with a reddish glow against the light. Frothy pale tan head that lasts a few minutes. Nose is roasted malt and a hint of molasses. Taste is sweet. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015 Pours very dark with a nice lingering frothy head, faint malty caramel aroma, taste is mild & blended well with a dry bitter finish

yenbeer (139) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 9, 2014
Taste nearly like a standard Asahi Super Dry with black food coloring. The only discernible difference would be that the Dry Black is slightly less sweet.
