Almost black slightly reddish color. The aroma is quite sweet and fruity, but lame. The flavor is sweet, slightly bitter, thinly burnt and has a bitter ending. A pretty good basic porter.

Draft: Let’s do it backwards for once. The palate says: More please. This porter deserved it’s medal at the Helsinki Beer Festival. It has a wonderful, roasted flavor with hints of chocolate. Yummy.

Voted silver beer of the festival. Very interresting clean aroma. Barrel characteristics and a touch of rum chocolate and orange chocolate in taste. A complex and absolutely great beer. My personal favourite Finnish beer of the festival.

Opaque black, small but steady tanned head. Coffee, roasted, chocolaty nose. Hoppy, roasted medium-bodied brew but lacks malty backbone: typical to Huvila beers. Dry, woody aftertaste.
