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.

Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. På RV124 9 Mai 13. Svart. Høyt - litt farget skum med litt lacing. Aroma av melkesjokolade. Smaken det samme. Blir etter hvert litt syrlig. En bra - men litt lett - porter. Antydning til sedimenter igjen i flaska.
