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.

DrSilverworm (6960) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2013
11.8oz can, shared by caterwaul. Sticker on can reads 3/9/12. Very dark brown color. Thin, light brown bubbly head. Good spread of lace. Really nice nose... Dark chocolate, some charred wood, some good coffee, bit of dark fruit. Very complex. Light smoke, medium body. More light, smooth drinkable texture, with a lighter carbonation and more of a dry finish. Lightly creamy. Good roast malt. Nice, mostly bitter taste. Great, flavorful, drinkable, enjoyable porter.

Westkyoto77 (542) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2013
Can (labelled as Karuizawa Kogen National Trust). Delicious malt and chocolate nose, slightest hint of spice. Smooth and velvety even from a can I had kept for a while. Medium to high carbonation. Creamy. Very good stuff.

allanbowers (93) - melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2013
330 ml can. Pours black with a reasonably small head. Quite a light taste. No t your normal porter type heaviness.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Black as the Ace of Spades. Aroma is all roasty toasty goodness. Sits quite light on the palate- contradictory to the colour. Good complexity- more toasted malt balance. A session Porter easily. Again, excellent on-paper example, if a little uninteresting.

Alphadelic (1765) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2013
A heavy, roasted malt nose. Super smooth and slick. Mellow yet full of robust malt character. A very light and short-lived bitterness. Quite awesome.

Had this in Seattle at a Sushi place. Very impressed with the balance of this porter.

Can@Home. Looks great, mouth feel is wonderful, could use some extra strength in the flavours though.

Scipio (719) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2013
My last thank you to Chris for his very thoughtful gift. Pours black with a medium, although short lasting, tan head. The aroma is roasted, with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and some slight licorice as well. The taste brings out a lot more of the chocolate. Coffee flavors are still there, and there is some smokiness as well. Lighter in body, with an oily and somewhat thinner texture. Short aftertaste that is a smoky coffee. This is a pretty good porter. There is really cool artwork on the can as well.

DalzAle (2000) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Can. Dark black pour, a little lacing and a nice roasted dark malt and peat & chocolate aroma. Flavor is outstanding, rich velvety chocolate, dark malt, earthy peat and a little sweetness on the finish. I’d buy the hell out of this if it wasn’t $6/can.
