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.

Had this from a can on a couple of occasions as well as on cask at Craft Beer Works Kamikaze in Osaka.
Pitch black pour. Nutty roast coffee aroma. Taste is nutty, a bit salty and with plenty of coffee. Very smooth and quite good overall.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
This baby here has an aroma of pretty light roasted malts, gentle hops and a hint of something I can’t put my finger on. The taste is more complex than you might think, at first it feels a bit thin and ordinary, but slowly it develops into a soft, sweet malty experience that transforms once more into a fruity and semi-dry finish. There is liquorice in here as well as some very light salty ingredient in there. I´m impressed.
