fredthecat (324) - - MAR 17, 2014
very dark brown with a white head. smell is mild, some malt. taste is of malt, very little roast. some caramel sweetness, sweetness is only countered with astringency rather than bitterness. carbonation is strong and harsh. poor crap, a typical east asian "black beer"

floydian1 (1414) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 16, 2017
On tap. A straightforward dark lager with toasty caramel malts to the fore and a low hop bitterness at the finish. Light-medium body with a sweet flattish palate. Better than the regular Super Dry but thats not saying much.

Cokemonkey11 (713) - - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with a thin brown head subsiding average quick. Scent is some sort of ale yeast and a bit musky. Taste is dense caramel and notes of dark fruit, but otherwise fairly sugary beer. Finish is a bit sticky but not too bad. Good.

Ok. Just basically like a darker version of the regular Asahi Super Dry. Certainly better schwarzbiers out there.
