Bought this for its intriguing darkness and cool can. I was impressed, good dark beer flavors -slight chocolate and caramel, and pretty smooth. I’ll have to try it again.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2009 As someone who seeks out new flavors instead of comparing everything to existing standard flavors, I tend to enjoy the family of Japanese Blacks. Like this beer, they tend to be a bit more refreshing than your standard stout. I really enjoy relaxing with this beer. I feel that the facts in the other reviews here are accurate, but I enjoy that this beer is a smoother, lighter black than its German counterparts.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2004 A decent Schwarzbier. However, there was little to make this standout. Slight chocolate and coffee tastes. Cool steel can!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Clear near black liquid with a head that id fizzy and tan. Dry dark malt and tar flavors. A bit thin in feel, a bit to fizzy perhaps. Just a dark lager at best.

Weak andf watery, I bought this one just out of curiousity to see if Japan had learned to make a decent dark beer... they haven't.

Panzuriel (1316) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2003
Darker liquid with a fizzy head. Somewhat malty and tart. Watery and thin. A odd little combination of beer aspects. Doesn't work.

Had this on tap. Maybe different than the Sapporo Black listed as mine was called Sapporo Dark. Decent beer with a slightly sourish taste to it. Quite bubbly. Decent but nothing to brag about.
