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.

Pour out of 12 oz can, thanks Markus! Dark black pour with a thin white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, slight rye notes as well. Taste is a mix of slight biscuit, bread, hints of oak, slight bread and yeast, caramel, chocolate. Odd.
