Suntory Premium Maltís Dark, 5.5%, is a schwarzbier that pours a very dark cola brown with a beige hand with lacing that clings to the sides of the glass. The nose is soft chocolate with a mild nutty bite. Fairly thin bodied, the taste is mild chocolate, a bit of nuts plus some roasty notes. Decent.

Milk chocolate, roasted malt. Quite creamy, chocolate candy, mocha, touch of cinnamon, sweet finish. Looks and smells quite attractive but overly sweet for me.

w zapachu słody, karmel i kawa. kolor ciemnobrunatny, ładna średnio trwała brązowawa piana. w smaku dość kwaśny, z dobrą, paloną goryczką, lekko czuć popiołem

Thisis12ptfont (1121) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
Aroma is faint wheat, black malts, and barley. Appears black with a two finger foam head. Taste is crisp black lager malts, rich toffee, pronounced caramel, chocolate, cocoa, roasted sugar syrup. Overall, syrupy and sugary with dark malt roast. Good stuff.

Can from World Liquor Nakai. Overall a nice, roasty black beer that was a welcome departure from the standard Japanese pale layers. Great choice in Japan.

[email protected] Coffee with sugar aroma. Black, beige head, no lace. Sweet, milk chocolate, hints of cola and coffee, light sugary. Dry-ish. Flavourful, easy, too easy.

Westkyoto77 (625) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2013
Can on the Shinkansen. Nice roasted malt nose, coffee crema, touch of chocolate. Body a tad thin, but there is creaminess and depth there. Still one of my favorite mainstream beers in Japan.

shoulderbroken (3906) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2013
Tap at a Doma Doma izakaya. Dark brown creamy golden head. Aroma is bit roasty, bit creamy. Decent enough. Taste is similar, quite malty, roast again, touch of choc. Quite thick and creamy. Pretty decent. Premium malts is my macro of choice and both are decent enough. Not wildly exciting, but solid enough to not mind drinking a load of in an izakaya.
