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.

Black beer with a huge dark beige head. Some sweetness and roastiness on the nose. Smooth texture. Somewhat watery. Flat carbonation. Very light bitterness wise. Not bad but not ver good either.

Diving deeper into Japanese beer I stumbled upon this biutiful beer. Yes it is not the most complex Porter out there, but it has some nice overall qualities.

The notes of dark roast, coffee and a hint of toffee hits your mouth when tasting this beer. The head stays and does not disapear. A very good porter.

Aroma of dark bitter chocolate, light hazelnut, light moccha. Taste has roasted malts, coal, chocolate, refreshing fruity notes. Medium body, carbonation on good levels, smooth and mildly dry on the palate. Good!

Can @ Van Moll Brewpub. I can make zero sense of the date at the bottom of the can. Black, solid big mocha head. Nose is powdery mocha, sweet chocolate, big soy sauce but complimentary, pleasant mixed with lots of sugar. Taste is herbal sweet coffee, powdery, caramel, cheap chocolate syrup, plenty of sugar, coffee, caramel, toffee, low soy sauce (complimentary), creamy very easy to drink. Lovely, smooth, really nice, drinks well. Great stuff.

Can with Jan-Hein in Tokyo. Nice black body with medium tan head. Nose is malts, chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar of dark chocolate, malts, some caramel and spices. Quite a nice kick to it.
