2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
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"
334ml Bottle from Kujiraya, Shibuya, Tokyo (¥450):MBlessing (1573) - Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2017
This one was a fairly enjoyable offering from Asahi & a nice change from the usual pale lagers I was drinking with dinner most nights in Japan, this one was lively & fresh with a slightly dry feel at the end. There was plenty of roasted & dark malts throughout with some grains, hay & grassy hops working well together to help this one go down easily enough.

500ml mostly blue can from Metro, Xiamen. Pours black with thin off white head. Aroma of roast malt. Sweetish taste. tmdaines (141) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Tastes quitlike heavily of adjuncts with a roastiness, malty at the end. Not much to it. Nothing complex or memorable. Definitely not a stout, or a "Japanese Guinness" as sometimes marketed. It’s a dark lager. sm89walt (2080) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2017
A deep, ruddy-hues brown/black with a small but lasting light tan head. Roasty malts, coffee, choc, liquorice. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a soft to moderate length and intensity malt bitterness to finish. IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUL 8, 2017
Dark brown color with a beige, short lived head. Mild roasted malt scent with hints of wet cardboard and unsweetened baking cocoa. Flavor is a blend of a cola and slightly burnt toast, some sweetness from the malts, bits of over roasted coffee bean. Thin body. This is the best of the recent "Convenience store" beers that I picked up, but that really isn’t saying much. yy0pp (1616) - - JUL 2, 2017
