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.

TychoJames (107) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
Burk från systembolaget. Kaffefärgad med stort ljusbrunt skum. Blöt rostad doft av mörk choklad och kaffe. Lätt i munnen utan att på något sätt vara klen. Smaken går åt mörk choklad. Trevlig beska

350ml can poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a large creamy thick tan head with good retention. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malts and muscovado. Flavours of milk chocolate, roasted malts, muscovado and a hint of coffee. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium-light bitter. Palate is medium-full bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall a great porter and one of the best beers I have tasted from East Asia.

Lawger (103) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Pours black with half a finger of chocolate milk coloured head. Surprisingly bright malty scents at first on the nose, some dried mushrooms, light licorice and coffee aromas, japanese soy sauce and wet wool. Palate is almost medium bodied with a relatively high amount of carbonation, fairly dry for a porter with some medium roasted malt flavours, medium finish and moderate bitterness. Tasty porter but a bit nondescript. Tastes like a good session beer but at 5% ABV it's on the verge of being too strong for that purpose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheMadHopper (4) - SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2014 does not count
Burk från Systembolaget. Kolsvart med ett kortvarigt brunt skum. Inte mycket doft förutom en lätt maltig ton och lätt doft av dadlar. Frisk smak i två sekunder som lämnar till chokladmaltens bitterhet. Påminner och starkt blandad chokladmjölk. Beskan är mild men ihållande till en eftersmak av bränt socker och grillat bananskal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2014
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

Kolsvart med stort ljubrunt skum. Doftar rostad malt. Kaffe och choklad i smaken och väldigt fyllig trots 5%
