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.

Braudog (6907) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Can. Quality pour you’d expect -- richly black, with a substantial head. The aroma is somewhat off-putting, with a sourly sweet licorice essence. The beer drinks with a bit more restraint, the bitter chocolate bite being not quite as pronounced, and actually quite drinkable. (#4138, 6/12/2011)

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Can:   Deep brown, thin beige head, sudsy, sparce lacing.   Nose is slightly pasture like.   Otherwise soft roastiness and a little (touch) of lactose.   Mild bitterness on the tongue.   Make that VERY mild bitterness.   Slight cocoa and watered down coffee on the backside.   Not a big Porter, and certainly not like a west coast example.   Remains flavorful tho from start to finish.   Decent example.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Has a decent body at least.

obguthr (6833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Can: Oatmeal and almond aroma, mild. Black, thick beige head. Flavor is char, yeast. Subtle kiss of sweet almond in the end. I struggled to flesh out any nuances. Rather plain.

350ml can @ Cardinal. Pitch black body with a big beige head. Very nice aroma of mild roasted malt and expresso coffee. Flavor is medium sweet, rather heavy roasted dark malt, coffee, dry fruit, some chocolate and moderate bitterness. Good and balanced body with a roasted aftertaste. Pretty good this one considering relatively low ABV.

berkshirejohn (6771) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2008
Cask at the Waggon & Horses (JDW), Alfreton.

Brewed by Yo-Ho at Marstons Brewery, Burton, for the JDW beer festival.

Jet black with a thin tan head; aroma of deep roasted malt with some chocolate; smooth with sweet lactic malts to start and then some dry coffee flavour developing; lingering bitter finish.

Inbreak (6723) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2014
03.12.2014, 0,35l can @ Apollon:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, dark malts, licorice, "knekk", dark sugar, coffee, hay, chocolate. Taste is slightly dry, dark malts, hay, burnt caramel, licorice, grass, paper, coffee. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and thin mouthfeel. Fair enough.

3.5
Holmen1 (6666) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Den fjerde japanske boksøl denne fine maikvelden på Cardinal: flott skum, mørk som seg hør og bør. Velbalansert og akkurat passe tørr. Myk og lett. Fint røstet aroma med innslag av mørk kvalitetssjokolade. En typeriktig og fin porter.

3.2
zvikar (6575) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 23, 2014

3.9
mkel07 (6549) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2012
330ml bottle. Black as a moonless night with a big thick light brown head. Roasted malt flavour with a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Lighter in the mouth than expected but very good.

3.5
Singularity (6369) - Blattniksele, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
350 ml can at the inlaws. Black with beige head. Aroma is roasted, a bit burnt, some chlorine or chlorinated water and some minerals. Taste is very creamy, cocoa, dry chocolate, minerals with a finish with minerals and cocoa. Nice one
