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.

My last thank you to Chris for his very thoughtful gift. Pours black with a medium, although short lasting, tan head. The aroma is roasted, with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and some slight licorice as well. The taste brings out a lot more of the chocolate. Coffee flavors are still there, and there is some smokiness as well. Lighter in body, with an oily and somewhat thinner texture. Short aftertaste that is a smoky coffee. This is a pretty good porter. There is really cool artwork on the can as well.

Burk. Svag arom med fina ladgårdstoner. Svaga smaker med lite kaffearomer. Även beskan är svag. Något för svag porter!!

Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks David Cohen. Black with dark tan head. A little sugar and some soy sauce aroma, also a little floral and roasty. Soy, roastiness, a little rich milk chocolate and then some nuts. Smooth, quite carbonated, full body, roasty finish with some raisins.

Pours black with a nice frothy tan head. Nose is coffee and dark chocolate, a little spice, slightly floral. Just like the description. Flavor is mellow roasted coffee, milk chocolate creaminess, a little dark chocolate, plum, caramel. Medium body, slightly spiky carbonation. Not bad, a little over carbonated for my tastes but I like the flavor profile.

At a tasting, thanks, slightly treacly pour, small creamy brown head, almost completely opaque black color,c aroma of dark bread and some soy and coffee with something charred, flavor of dark honey, dark bread and caramel with a hint of cola, quite sweet. Very easy to drink.

Black, medium beige head. Yeast, roastiness, caramel and cocoa on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet with roasty notes, finishes a bit watery, but overall rather nice.

0.35L can. Black body with beauty black head. Stays. Vanilla, smoke, coffee aroma. Toffee, v.light smoke, raisin, flavours. Taste is too light for porter, but anyway it is good job. Milky finish.

minihame2 (260) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 26, 2015
Black body, nice tan head. Sweet aroma with malts, brown sugar and chocolate. Taste is quite neutral though, slightly bitter and dry in the end. Oily and slick mouthfeel, mild carbonation. An enjoyable porter.

Vad i hela friden är det som händer. Porter...från Japan...i Sverige. Man tar sig för pannan och tar gärna ännu en bara de inte vore så förbannat sällsynta.
