Asahi Black

Asahi Black

Ratebeer 3.0 44th percentile
Beer Advocate B
Taste +2

It pours with a minimal, thin head. ICYWW that is not a traditional style of beer glass. It came with a fancy Italian frozen desert. The colour is true, dark like coffee but not murky. The taste is as you would expect. There is roasted malt sweetness mixed with burnt toast and just the fainted of hops. It was actually very thin tasting; similar to a burnt Guinness. Only not as sweet.

Aftertaste +2

The brew provided a long lasting roasted malt and astringent hops coating. It seemed to hang around for hours.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Value 0

You could liken this to a watery stout. Asahi dark was nice but not spectacular.

Ingame Enhancement 0

I tried the Grid Defence demo today. I think there may be a 12 step program in my near future

Overall 4/10

If I were in Japan and could not get anything else, I would have one again.
