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.

Can kindly shared by Roman, thank you! Aroma chocolate, light heavily roasted. Light light dark fruits. Quite tempting. Almost black colour. Taste is moderate burnt roastiness, light chocolate, light coffee. Simple, but tasty albeit a bit thin bodied. Very easily drinkable and a very good one overall. Finish of moderate duration, roasted notes, coffee.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 13, 2011
12oz can. Rating #96. Real good porter, more stout like actually. Picked up a decent amount of hops in the aroma with a nice little bite when I tasted it. Good brew, I’m impressed with this brewery so far. (1901)

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2008
Found in Tokyo at Tokyu Department Store food hall in Shibuya neighborhood (see Places). A really roasty, bitter, charred black beer that’s a true porter. Opaque, with a thick body! Kanpai! Tasty.

hawthorne00 (2774) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2013
Can. Black with a tan head that never quite gives up. Floral aroma with roasted malt, chocolate, molasses. Gently mouthfilling with little sweetness and a dry but barely bitter finish. Chocolate, mild roast, dark sugars, floral notes. Insubstantial but rather elegant.
