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.

33 cL bottle. Pours slight cloudy deep brown towards black with light amber glare and a lacing tan head. Roast amlty and mil fruity aroma of a classic schwartz bier. Flavour is dry and light bodied with a distinct acidic roasted note and mild fruity accent.

Ungstrup (39529) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A red-brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with light roasted notes and a dry slightly bitter end, but the body is thin. A nice Schwarzbier.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Nice clean dark lager. Dry finish. No huge depth of flavour but hits the spot.

cgarvieuk (27022) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2007
Bottle at home from GBBF07 ... Deep brown black ... toasted oats and roast malts ... oats anf fruit ... roast malts ... tasty enough but unusal and distinctive.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Bottled. Ruby colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is metal, roasted malts and some hints of metal. Flavour is roasted malts, some dark riped fruits and some hints of rice. Not very exciting.

omhper (26343) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2007 Canned. Dark brown, very lively head. Aroma of syrupy roasty malt and rice. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Rather mild with light notes of licorice. Some interesting flavours, but has a general industrial boldness that takes the edge of it.
