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.

@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!

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)

KansaiBeerLvrs (2048) - 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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Cask (GBBF 2006): Black in colour. Sweet, nutty chocolate with some roasty notes. A little chalky, but perfectly drinkable stuff. Suprising beer from Japan!
