334ml Bottle from Kujiraya, Shibuya, Tokyo (¥450):
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.

Had in Japan. darkest thing ive found here. Now, let's be honest. Japan isn't known for beer. It's known for sake and whiskey. So, to be fair, it's better than anything Budweiser serves. But, if you like big beers you'll hate it. Looks nice, smells ok but there just isn't too much flavor here. It's like a super watered down Scotch Ale to me. I'll drink it while I'm over here but as soon as I get back to the stages, it's big beer for me.

AZ vigorous pour produced a 1 finger light tan hard with dismal retention. The body of the beer is dark brown near black with opaque clarity. The appearance is just meh.

A light roasted malt, light roasted coffee chocolate yeast. And some floral notes.

The beer is medium roasted flavors of coffee and malt. Notes of chocolate bread, yeast, floral, earthy, and wood.

The mouthful is slightly carbonated creamy and a but cheey.

This is an alright brew good flavors and simple. I would drink it again.

Dark brown color with a thick dark two fingers beige head with good retention and leaving some laces.
Malty aroma with notes of chocolate, grains and cola.
Flavor with notes of cola, chocolate, distant iced coffee, lager yeast and some spices. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation.
Very refreshing and easy to drink industrial Dark Lager. Very plain and assertive with huge drinkability and no bothering off-flavors.

From 334ml bottle. Pours a dark brown tan head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aromas of raisins, caramel. Taste is light caramel and roast with a bit of a citrus zing. Very dry. Clean finish with a little fruit in the aftertaste.
