UPDATED: FEB 18, 2018 Got this one as a real/cask ale at Yona Yona Beer Works in Shinjuku. Deep black with generous creamy light brown head. Milk chocolate aroma, toasty malts. And some malt sugar too. Mellow chocolate taste, not too overwhelming. Extremely drinkable. Beyond luscious in the mouth, oh so creamy. yoxik75 (474) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 17, 2017
Piana drobna opada , zdobi szkło. Kolor czarny. Aromat słodki, ciemne słody, paloność, czekolada. Smak palone słody, czekolada lekka słodycz, karmel, czuć lekko żelazo w smaku. Piwo lekkie, przyjemne, dobre, nic nadzwyczajnego. flying_pig (1695) - SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2017
350ml Can from Bic Camera, Akihabara, Tokyo (¥288):tiong (7823) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2017
Quite an enjoyable porter & definitely one of the better dark beers that I've tried from Japan, this one coming through with quite a sweet but balanced taste than had a great combination of caramel malts & milk chocolate flavours as well as some earthy malts & vanilla in there. The beer was exactly what I was expecting from the style & it went down smoothly too, it's definitely one I'd have again if I could find it outside of Japan.
330ml can @ Kyoto. Smooth, slightly roasty and earthy porter with some licorice, coffee and syrupy sweetish notes. Okay. Ngejo (1000) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - OCT 5, 2017

Black hue with thick light beige head. Medium roasty black malty nose with a dryish backbone. Smooth yet full flavor that’s dark and roasty and earthy with a kiss of licorice and light tempered and balancing bitterness. Standard earthy roasty dry and somewhat bitter finish. Kinda just plain.

W aromacie głównie kawa zbożowa wzbogacona o subtelną mleczną czekoladę. W smaku kawa, kawa zbożowa. Wysoce kremowe, gładkie, dosyć słodkie, delikatnie palone. Czarne z piękną, kremową pianą. Dobre. japancottrer (17) - JAPAN - AUG 4, 2017
Just got home and cracked this cold beauty. Admittedly, though, after a two-hour commute because of bad weather, Milwaukee's Best might also taste like salvation. Luckily, having drunk this many a time, I also know it is a well-crafted beer.
Pours an opaque black with a tan head. There is a lot of chocolate and coffee flavors in here, along with roasted malt. Chocolate comes first, then coffee, and finishes with malt. Tokyo Black is a little bitter, but not exceptionally so.
