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 33cl. Poured into a shaker. Almost opaque black, tall macropore tan head, mostly diminishing, light lacing; aroma roasted malts, cocoa, light licorice; mild taste, medium sweet and bitter, roasted malts, chocolate, light dark fruits, bit coffee groundings; dry bittersweet aftertaste, light spicy notes; medium body, creamy to watery texture, soft carbonation; maybe a bit on the thin side tastewise but quite drinkable.

monk191 (1683) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2016
An above-average Porter. A bit like a muted campfire stout. Pours a great deep black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a modern Porter, creamy with lots of chocolate, vanilla and bread pudding. Had in the can.

Can. A- Cocoa, chocolate, roasty, subtle coffee. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Chocolate, cocoa, roasty, subtle vanilla, light fudge, subtle spice. P- Medium full body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- A darn tasty porter. Iíve come to love this brewery called Yo-Ho during my time in Japan. Please come to the US now. A really nicely done Porter. It doesnít scream special but itís just easy to drink and not a thing wrong with it.

Cask @ Ushi Tora. Looks great, nice and black with a bubbly cask head. Has a chocolatey, roasty nose. Palate is complex dark sugars and smokiness, hints of dark chocolate. Good body. Top porter.

mrjez (380) - Osaka, JAPAN - APR 19, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma, chocolate, with a rich chocolate flavour. Full richness like a mud cake, with some light metallic hop in the finish, notes of coffee and citrus. Itís a touch raspy, where a more rounded gentle carbonation would serve it well. Finishes pretty clean. Decent to try once every now and then.

Black beer with a huge dark beige head. Some sweetness and roastiness on the nose. Smooth texture. Somewhat watery. Flat carbonation. Very light bitterness wise. Not bad but not ver good either.

Diving deeper into Japanese beer I stumbled upon this biutiful beer. Yes it is not the most complex Porter out there, but it has some nice overall qualities.
