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.

Tokyo Black pours thin and is jet black. The head is mocha brown and remains for about 30 seconds. Moderate lacing lines the glass. The smell is mostly of bitter coffee and dark chocolate. The smell, like the beer itself, is a bit thin. The taste is only a little bitter with coffee and chocolate notes. A slightly metallic aftertaste lingers. The mouthfeel is thin but smooth and soft. Perhaps a little more prickly carbonation than a porter should have. Overall, this beer is ok but not great. Yona Yona Pale is a better offering fro Yo Ho.

Can bought at systembolaget. Pours Jet black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Taste is pretty thin. I expected a bit more from this one to be honest.

willisread (470) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 17, 2015
330ml can from Masuyo’s in Tokyo. Poured into a shaker half pint. Jet black with a modest tan head. Burnt malt, leather and coffee aroma. Burnt coffee, soy sauce and malt on the palate with a hint of dark fruit and star anise. Dry but quick finish. Fairly well-balanced. Not a bad porter.

Marheb (2817) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Un nez de mélasse et de noix de coco assez intense pour le taux d’alcool, j’aurais misé plus haut juste avec les arôme. En bouche il y a une belle onctuosité mais une légèreté à la fois, une souplesse je dirais. Les saveurs sont comme les arômes avec un côté lacté encore plus présent. Une bonne amertume torréfié vient calmer les sucres brièvement alors que ceux-ci refont surface à chaque gorgée. Belle surprise.

Can, at Cardinal. A dense, beige head leaves curtains over a dark brown, unclear body. It’s roasted and meaty on the nose, with some dark rye bread. There’s burnt malts, meat, roasted notes, dark wort and rye bread in the flavor. Full-bodied and soft on the palate, with a lasting finish. A flavorful one, but overall I find it single tracked and sort of dull, and a bit too wort-like, without being sweet. 141101
