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.

Poured into a tulip glass. Jet black with a finger of tan head. A good nose of burnt malt, but rounds out with roasted malt. Heavy hitter on the burnt malt in the taste. I like it. Joined by nice bitterness makes it "gripping". Hint of milk but the burnt malt reigns supreme. On the creamy side, smoother, bubbles on the tongue. Medium body. A tasty, standard porter.

Can @ De Tolly Joogipood. Pours black with brownish head. Aroma of roasted malts, milk coffee, some herbal notes. Taste of roaste malts, a bit watery, slight sweetness, coffee, some bitterness, some spicyness in aftertaste. Drinkable but nothing special.

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 (2641) - 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.

yngwie (14628) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2015
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

Blikje 33cl meegenomen uit Amsterdam, waar weet ik niet meer. schenkt zwart met minimale bruine kraag. Aroma van chocolade, volmoutig (geroosterd/gebrand), zoetig, vanille. Smaken redelijk zoet, matig bitter, chocolade, vanille, hout... zacht/romig, lage co2, donkere mouten, zoetige koffie, matige body, iets dun qua body maar basis smaken zijn ok !

Dar japoniško krafto. Labai sausas nors ir porteris. Nors 5 laipsniai, bet alkoholis išsimuša. Bet 20 balų.

Vells (824) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 1, 2015
Wow.. Awesome surprise. I dont remember when I had so smooth and fullbodied brew with so low ABV. Lovely roasted malt background introduces awesome choco performance. Covered by pleasant not too pushy hop kick that gives additional fruity dimension. Bic licorice, bit milky. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Thumbs up

Ideāls porteris, maigs vienkāršs un perfekts. Viens no labākajiem proteriem ko esmu dzēris :)

al53 (83) - FINLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Can. Black colour with minimal dark brown head. MIlk chocolate, cacao and roasted malts on aroma. Taste is very sweet with vanilla, cocos, cacao, bit smoke and milk chocolate. Light bodied with soft carbonation, watery and metallic mouthfeel. Short and dry, bit ashy finish with chocolate. Sweet, faceless and mediocre porter.
