WVHouseofBeer (1055) - West Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Wow this really is just Asahi Super Dry with just a handful of chocolate malt thrown in to the mix. The flavor is not bad, there is just very little flavor present. Definitely the lightest "dark" beer I have ever had.

Sigmund (7230) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 12, 2017
334 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 5.5%. Black colour, large beige head. Aroma of dark malts and dark bread. Dry flavour, moderate roast malts, very moderate hops. Nice enough to drink, but not particularly remarkable.

Tezminator (166) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2017
Dry with nice balanced flavour between roasted malt and faint hops. Not great, but I do not mind it.

oh6gdx (26415) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Bottled (backlog). Deep brown colour, close to black, with a mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, some dried fruits, mild herbs and wood. Flavour is quite similar, but also has a quite strong syrupy sweetness to it.

T: malt, hint of citrus, chocolate, roasted malt, cacao, dry grassy bitterness on the palate, light to medium body, medium carbonation, not bad but nothing to be remember, 500ml can from E-Mart near Incheon airport in Seoul.

floydian1 (1435) - 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.

anders37 (25591) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark brown black color with a small off-white head. Has a slightly roasted malty caramel aroma. Slightly roasted malty caramel flavor. Has a slightly roasted malty caramel finish.

Cokemonkey11 (768) - - 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.

thewerewombat (29) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2016
Ok. Just basically like a darker version of the regular Asahi Super Dry. Certainly better schwarzbiers out there.

Beer5000 (6320) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2016
334 ml bottle. Clear, dark amber body with a medium sized beige head. Aroma has roasted, dark malt with caramel. Flavor is medium sweet, dark, light roasted malt, low bitterness. Clean, quite plain black lager. Nice Shweartzbier and pleasant within its style.
