3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Jet black with a finger of tan head.
A good nose of burnt malt, but rounds out with roasted malt.
Heavy hitter on the burnt malt in the taste. I like it. Joined by nice bitterness makes it "gripping". Hint of milk but the burnt malt reigns supreme.
On the creamy side, smoother, bubbles on the tongue. Medium body.
A tasty, standard porter.
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.

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.

Bottle @ Floris’ Leaving Party. Pours a pich black beer with a thick off white head on top. Aroma of roasted malts, some meaty aroma, licorice and tobacco. Flavor is strong, earthy notes, some coffee and high in carbonation. A bit weird, with a strange coffee tartness in the finish. Full and complex, but still a bit weird..
