COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

TBone (12456) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Handpump at Popeye, Tokyo. Dark opaque color, small beige head. Burned malts, lactose in the nose. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Lactose milky, burned malty flavor. Soft palate, a bit sweetish. Maybe not my favourite beer style.

CacheManyHose (164) - HONG KONG - JUL 12, 2014
Can. Opaque brown-black with very thin tan head. Smells of oat, slightly burnt coffee, tiny bit of anise but more spicy than raisiny. Tastes of same burnt coffee, quite bitter. Body on the watery side, bit spicy. Nice that it's got both very roasted malt and bitter hop but kind of thin.

Kauge (67) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2014
Can from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department. BB was due in June which explains the € 1,60 price tag (I think I did buy it on the last day of June). Pours a deep, reddish brown with a big creamy head. An intense malty aroma of barley, Irish coffee and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, sweet, chocolaty and fresh, grassy hops. Smooth, medium body, light carbonation. Dry mouthfeel. A beautiful, near balanced brew.

Scopey (6242) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Can at Taps, KL. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is rich roast, coffee, toast, earth, cocoa and umami notes. The taste is bitter, roasty, toast, peppery spice, dark chocolate, ash and umami edge with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty robust and rather tasty. Nice stuff.

Japanese porter. Very black, dark head. Light taroma, flavour. Low carbonation. Apparently an American style porter.
