Tokyo Black is the second brand at YoHo. A robust porter, well balanced between the malt and the hops. The complex chocolate and roast flavours of dark specialty malts are combined with a floral and slightly spiciness from Perle hops.

Hermod (3145) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2014
350ml can. BBE 2014-12-10. From Systembolaget. Pours black with a brown, thick head, lacing. Ashy, roasty aroma, licorice as well. Flavor has some sweetness (licorice?) roasted malt, chocolate. Pleasant finish, coffee notes and chocolate lingering. As it warms up more, ashy notes. Thin, needs more body. Nice flavors.

Zekada (114) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Roasted malts, chocolates and some coffee. Black with a smell brown head. Nice taste, dark chocolates and malts, yet fresh and citrusy. Palate is quiet thin for a porter, on the other hand it gives a fresh feeling. Overall a strange beer. Tastes and smells very (!) appealing but the body is really thin.

KeefOz (892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
Poured an opaque black with a slight mahogany edge tint and a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that retained OK and laced well. Aroma of sweet malts; strangely for me no obvious roasted characters. Taste completely different to aroma being quite roasted malty. Medium body. Creamy and smooth with lingering roasted notes on the finish. Average for a porter.
