Very weak dark beer, barely any aroma and not much flavor. With the higher price tag for "premium" best to just avoid this one.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2015 Burnt aroma with wheat. Very dark in color with some lacing. Dark malts, burnt toast, caramel, nuts and chocolate and syrup. Finish is dry but sweet. Very good beer and great in the winter. Beats all other dark beers in the 7-11 and Family mart and leaves you wanting more.

Suntory Premium Malt’s 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.

czlowiekwiadro (1021) - POLAND - MAY 6, 2014
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 (1199) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2017 ~This review was made some time ago via another application, and thus the specific details (beyond numerical scores) are no longer available~coffee, chocolate, black, frothy, tan foam, light sweetness, thin feel. Nice, chocolate/coffee smell, not overwhelming. Snappy roasted taste, quick burnt and bitter finish. Lighter than a stout; quite thin but personally that’s a plus for a beer in the Premium Malt’s line. Highly drinkable, best in the series.

Coffee and chocolate aroma. Coffee, chocolate, and caramel taste. A good dark lager.

BelgianBeerGal (4085) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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.

2.6
meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2013
[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.
