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.

At a tasting, thanks, slightly treacly pour, small creamy brown head, almost completely opaque black color,c aroma of dark bread and some soy and coffee with something charred, flavor of dark honey, dark bread and caramel with a hint of cola, quite sweet. Very easy to drink.

hens (588) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - APR 28, 2015
0.35L can. Black body with beauty black head. Stays. Vanilla, smoke, coffee aroma. Toffee, v.light smoke, raisin, flavours. Taste is too light for porter, but anyway it is good job. Milky finish.

minihame2 (258) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 26, 2015
Black body, nice tan head. Sweet aroma with malts, brown sugar and chocolate. Taste is quite neutral though, slightly bitter and dry in the end. Oily and slick mouthfeel, mild carbonation. An enjoyable porter.

Vad i hela friden är det som händer. Porter...från Japan...i Sverige. Man tar sig för pannan och tar gärna ännu en bara de inte vore så förbannat sällsynta.

Nocturne (1046) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Cask at Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Solid black. Tan head and lace. Light malty aroma. Taste is fat maltiness, sugary molasses. Decent porter but not really enough depth to satisfy. Also had high hopes for it being cask but the cask treatment didn’t seem to help it much.

Slaktmasken (65) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Can bought at systembolaget. Pours Jet black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Taste is pretty thin. I expected a bit more from this one to be honest.
