Appearance: Dark black with very little head and a bit of nice lacing.

Smell: Alcohol and a slight chocolaty aroma.

Taste: Dark roasted malt flavour, well-hopped, and has notes of chocolate and presence of sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy body with light carbonation and a smooth, dry finish.

4.3/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours thick and black. Sits in the glass ominously with a minimal, brown head.

Smell: Heavy aroma upon pouring. Alcohol, cherry and heavy malt presence. Nice blast of hops as well.

Taste: Roast malt, alcohol and a touch of sugary sweetness. Good hop presence in the finish to dry it all out.

Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy body. Mostly still, but has a bit of carbonation activity. Dry finish.

Drinkablity: A brilliant Asahi brew. Very well crafted. I will seek out this beer as much as I can.
