COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Production in Japan was stopped in September 2015. If you have a dark Asahi beer after that, it is Dry Black.

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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Can. Pours an amber brown body. Light roasty chocolate notes. Caramel and a faint grassy earthy hoppiness. Chestnuts and diacetyl. Eh not so good.

KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle. Very faint caramel aroma. Slight caramel and chocolate flavor. Way too fizzy and gassy. Thin too. Nothing finish. Drinkable, but not interesting. A bit better on draught. The label calls it Munich style, which would make it a Dunkel.

elihapa (1553) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Gold can from Taiwan. Pours dark brown, clear, and with a lively head. Aroma is mild, with slight roasts. Flavor features brown sugar sweetness contrasted with tasty roasts, buttery nuts, and a hint of mocha. Finishes dry with sweet-ash. Although the palate was predictably thin, I was generally impressed by Asahi’s effort. Or was it the novelty of a black beer from Japan?

Jan 3, 2009 Bottle in London sushi bar with Gio and Laura. Black colour. Sweet and malty nose. Tastes of chocolate, malt, and toast. Went down pretty well.

Clear light to medium brown color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, burnt, bread, brown sugar. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (140908)

bottled. actually black, light head with a brownish tinge, quite one dimensional, just some chocolatey malt and no real finish, it just peters out

Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2008
EBF2008. It’s a red-brown beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of candy sugar, sweetness, malt and light licorice. The flavour has sweetness and notes of candy sugar, light sweet coffee, sweet licorice and caramel. The sweetness is a bit too strong IMO.

3.2
gringo332 (640) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Definitely smooth. Aroma is identical to Guinness stout. Not bitter, and only slightly sweet. A little roasted malt flavor. Could have a stronger flavor.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear warm orangey brown with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and raisins. Medium-bodied with roasted malts, dried fruit and perhaps also overripe fruit. Dry and somewhat sulphurous finish. 140908
