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.

On cask at Ushi Tora (Tokyo). As equally smooth as it is black (which is very), with roasted malt lingering on the gums. Not too dry, really sessionable. The type of beer you’d want to drink all through a winter’s night (or autumn like this one was).

Can. Opaque black liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, pumpernickel, light ash, light licorice and light pine. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice and light ash. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty good.

@Basunen 14-9-13: en tydlig doft av kaffe och mogen frukt. Smaken är lite tunn men helt ok. Lagom besk eftersmak. Helt ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

maekchu (2205) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 11, 2012
Can. Heavy chocolate and mild coffee nose. Very dark brown (nearly black). A bit sharp in initial. Heavy roast malt and chocolate flavors, with nice sweetness in mid palate. Nicely balanced aftertaste. Very tasty, but a bit candy-ish.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2187) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2013
At Craft Beer Base, a can 280 yen to go and 560 in to drink in which is what I did. A very solid porter with some roast coffee notes and an inky black color with a burnt orange head of foam. Very nice value.

TheJestersBeer (2116) - SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2014
350ml can. Pours a soldid dark brown, with a brown head. Roasted, malty, coffee-like aroma, dark chocolate, licorice, honey, faint hops, tar, earth. Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Roasted, malty taste, coffee, licorice root, chocolate, caramel, chestnut, earth, faintly hoppy. Quite smooth, and well balanced. Not the mst compex porter ever tried, but certainly drinkable and enjoyable. (2014-09-04)

shoulderbroken (2114) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 10, 2011
Can bought from Bic Camera! Branded as National Trust. Pours extremely dark brown black with frothy beige gold head. Aroma is smoke spice and bitter coffee. Taste is dark chocolate, strong coffee with a bitter finish. Slight creaminess. Spiciness lingers at the end. Lovely. Possibly a bit thin inthe mouth but this is just a quibble. Has the oiliness you would expect though. Having something this good out of a can from a camera shop is pretty amazing.
