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.

12oz can. Darkest brown in color with a half finger tan head. Roasty and chocolatey aroma with maybe just the slightest metallic hint. The flavor is dry and bitter with sharp roast, cacao nibs, molasses, and anise. Medium-thin bodied with big bubbles. A good, enjoyable beer.

Thanks Ethan. Pours black with a small tan head. Robust nose of roast, chocolate, light vanillin. Flavor is more roast, coffee, some bitter hops. Mouthfeel a little thinner than expected, but overall better than expected.

Sampled at the Richmond Gather XIII. Black pour with good mocha head. Bambergy smoke on the nose. Deep rich roast and chocolate and earthy notes in the flavor. Surprisingly good. Very drinkable. Very enjoyable. Love that it comes in a can

cool can with little sumo dude. the beer pours out black with ruby highlights through a flashlight. a large, fluffy, brown head on top. very robust roasty aroma with coffee and milk chocolate. palate is milky with low carbonation. reminds me of a dry stout nitro can mouthfeel. flavor is much of what the aroma suggests. a really nice porter...just with they could get the stuff to the states a little cheaper.

MrChopin (3999) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Dark brown, spotty cream head, large bubbles. Bit of smoke and grain, light oat. Bit thin flavor, grainy, green, chalky, bit of coffee. Thin body and too fizzy for the profile.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Cask, gravity dispense, at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, at ’Spoons Real Ale Festival. Near black. Despite being rather warm, I could pick up very little aroma. Nice ashy, dusty taste followed by some milky sourness. Mid bitter finish, which intensified. Good pint.
