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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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..

35 cl can a firend brought for me from Tokyo. Pitch black color, short relatively persistent dark brown head. Aroma is malty, dark chocolate, some coffee, burnt wood, bittering hops maybe. Taste is light bitter, well balanced, dusty texture, medium body, structured, relatively long and dry finish, light sharp/spicy. Quite nice.

kanibasami (2) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2017 does not count
I had it in the can. So much for the aroma. I had nori before, so my evaluation is now heavily confounded. But it’s with mentioning that it fits nicely to minced pork with rice and nori. It is a very round, charming, not heavy, not light, fairly creamy porter. For it’s price (280¥) I got more than I’ve expected. It’s more on the coffee and black beans side of the palate with a smooth bitterness of black tea (not flowery though). I would have it again. It satisfies.

Ko?uch g?stej piany. Zapach s?odki, niezbyt mocny, czekolada i rodzynki. W smaku mleczna czekolada, lekka palono??, ciemny chleb, troch? kawy, brakuje nuty owocowej. Troch? ma?o cia?a, poza tym poprawnie.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a pitch black color with a huge brown head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is big on malt and very flavorful. An outstanding porter.
