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.

Dar japoniško krafto. Labai sausas nors ir porteris. Nors 5 laipsniai, bet alkoholis išsimuša. Bet 20 balų.

Wow.. Awesome surprise. I dont remember when I had so smooth and fullbodied brew with so low ABV. Lovely roasted malt background introduces awesome choco performance. Covered by pleasant not too pushy hop kick that gives additional fruity dimension. Bic licorice, bit milky. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Thumbs up

Ideāls porteris, maigs vienkāršs un perfekts. Viens no labākajiem proteriem ko esmu dzēris :)

Can. Black colour with minimal dark brown head. MIlk chocolate, cacao and roasted malts on aroma. Taste is very sweet with vanilla, cocos, cacao, bit smoke and milk chocolate. Light bodied with soft carbonation, watery and metallic mouthfeel. Short and dry, bit ashy finish with chocolate. Sweet, faceless and mediocre porter.

Had this from a can on a couple of occasions as well as on cask at Craft Beer Works Kamikaze in Osaka.
Pitch black pour. Nutty roast coffee aroma. Taste is nutty, a bit salty and with plenty of coffee. Very smooth and quite good overall.
