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.

Can. Pours cloudy nearly black with airy tan head. Clear aroma of coffee, roast and malt. Bitter, roasty flavour, with sweetish notes of caramel malt and touches of liquorice and coffee. Bitter and roasty aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel. Good.

A solid porter from lovely Japan. They are starting to get a hang of it. And they are so small and cute. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olsvammel (4721) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2014
Can from Systembolaget. Deep smell with creamy dark chocolate. Taste is also deep and full with dark chocolate, hard toasted bread and something that makes me think of milk chocolate. Full body. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

TBone (14786) - 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 (447) - 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 (943) - 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 (10039) - 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.
