COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Huvila X-Porter has a deep black appearance with a brown head. Creamy, slightly nutty, smooth chocolate malt nose. The taste is similar to its nose but also allows the taste of toffee to come through. The after taste then turns more chocolate with toffee. This is a rarity as not many top-fermented Baltic Porters are made any more. Our “hero” at the San Diego Int’l Beer Festival 2010! It is available on tap and in bottles in bars and restaurants across Finland. Since 2011, Huvila X-Porter is also available in shops in Estonia through Drink Baar. Last, but not least, Huvila X-Porter is also imported into the US through Shelton Brothers.

Kimi Räikkönen egészségére iszom eme baltikus portert a ferraris szerződéshosszabbítás apropóján. Én is szeretek inni, aludni és szarni is.

Nonshaugen (80) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2015
Scandinavian porter. Beautiful black in the glass, tiny beige to tan head. Dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, hint of alcohol hits the nose. Viewed in front of a light bulb it reveals a deep deep cherry red colour, absolutely fantastic. An explotion of dark flavours hit you like a sledgehammer. Plums, dates, raisins, cherry, chocolate, everything a porter is supposed to offer.But alas, also the warming taste of alcohol, and I’m not a big fan of that in my beers. Field-Marshal Mannerheim may spin 360 degrees in his grave for this statement, sorry about that Suomi Finland. (But i love my Nokia cell-phone...)

jamwnukers (61) - Legionowo, POLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Wielokran, Warszawa.
Aromt - Gorzka czekolada, kawa, nuty palone, karmel. Chmiel ziołowy.
Wygląd - Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana gęsta, beżowa, długo trwająca.
Smak - Gorzka czekolada, kawa, espresso, kawa z mlekiem, karmel. W smaku trochę puste i drażniący alkohol pod koniec łyka, nie taki rozgrzewający przełyk, raczej wczesny i nie zbalansowany. Wysycenie bardzo niskie. Goryczka niska
Podsumowanie - Piwo jak na porter trochę zawodzi pod względem mocno widocznego alkoholu. Raczej spodziewałbym się go pod koniec degustacji, a nie z pierwszym łykiem.

rami_pl (559) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 31, 2015
kran w Jabeerwocky. na szybko: primo: nie zgadlbym, ze to porter, predzej obstawilbym stouta slodkiego albo RIS’a. secundo - finowie bardzo fajnie to zrobili. Jest duzo aromatow - palonosc na pierwszym planie, pozniej czekolada, owoce ciemne, rodzynki, kawa. Alkohol tez jest, ale dobrze schowany. Sa nawet jakies nutki waniliowe i orzechowe. w smaku ciut pusciej, ale tez fajnie bardzo, w slodka strone z wyczuwalna goryczka a la migdaly. fajnie pelne w ustach. klasa
