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.

The notes of dark roast, coffee and a hint of toffee hits your mouth when tasting this beer. The head stays and does not disapear. A very good porter.

Can @ Van Moll Brewpub. I can make zero sense of the date at the bottom of the can. Black, solid big mocha head. Nose is powdery mocha, sweet chocolate, big soy sauce but complimentary, pleasant mixed with lots of sugar. Taste is herbal sweet coffee, powdery, caramel, cheap chocolate syrup, plenty of sugar, coffee, caramel, toffee, low soy sauce (complimentary), creamy very easy to drink. Lovely, smooth, really nice, drinks well. Great stuff.

adasko (1333) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Dark seal color, clear but non-transparent. Medium quality tanned head. Very pleasant aroma, full of dark notes - bitter chocolate, espresso coffee, even a bit of smoky notes. Really nice. Itís definitely a bit over carbonated which make it even more drinkable, which is not the thing Iím looking in porters. Itís watery more than I was hopping it will be. In taste very nice roasted notes, dark coffee with tiny touch of chocolate. A bit of roasted bitterness in the end and in the afterates. Itís very nice in overall but I would say itís like a small porter with itís taste, aroma, bitterness and abv.
