3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Medium head. Never would have guessed it was a porter if I had been blindfolded. Light and citrusy, thin malt, no burned sugar, no smoke, no caramel. A lot of bubbles though. A strange excuse for alcohol.

Black with a mid sized head.
Aroma is licorice, coffee, chocolate, matches and some toffee.
Smooth mouth feel.

Well made and pleasant.

@Basunen 14-9-13: en tydlig doft av kaffe och mogen frukt. Smaken är lite tunn men helt ok. Lagom besk eftersmak. Helt ok.

Light aroma of dark malt and soya. Good taste but still feels quite heavy with the dark malt one senses. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Difficult to rate this beer. It cuts out a disadvantage and gets better the warmer it gets. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Mörk chockladig arom med hel del kaffe inslag. Smaken likaså, bra balans i smaken. Lite lätt i kroppen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark-brown/black, with two-finger nice head with lots of lacing. Aroma has a lot of coffee, with less chocolate, earthiness and a hint of licorice. Taste has also lots of coffee, but now the chocolate and licorice are more abundant. Palte is very full and plesent for a 5% ABV beer. Nice porter, with full body and intense taste. Too bad I’m not that into coffee.
