The brand, a 4.9% abv, Belgian-brewed light beer, will appear in the on-trade this autumn.
A-B Inbev said it has a “rounded, full-bodied flavour” and would typically sell at a 15% premium to regular Stella.
The launch of Stella Artois 4% in 2008 has been successful, but not every brand extension for the lager has been as well received.
Artois Bock, Eiken Artois and Peeterman Artois have all arrived and been dropped within the past five years.
A-B Inbev UK president Stuart MacFarlane said Stella Artois Black would offer a “premium-plus experience”.
