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.

ciocanelu (604) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 11, 2016
Dark brown color, almost black with really nice, creamy light brown head. Aroma has toasted malt, dark bread and a bit of brown sugar. Tasty starts on the sweet side with grains, a bit of brown sugar and a hint of dried fruits. Finishes bitter and roasty with a nice coffee flavor. Body and carbonation are medium. Overall it’s a well made beer, really balanced between the sweet and bitter flavors. The start is quite sweet but the bitter finish and aftertaste makes it really easy to drink.

50 cl. Bière brune avec col diminutif. Intéressant nez de chocolat avec un soupçon fruité et un coutour de caramel. Sur les papilles, retour des principaux éléments avec une avancée des malts rôtis et leur amertume. Corps moyen avec pétillement relâché. Finale légèrement cendrée.

Hints of smoke, unsweetened dark baking chocolate. Very dark brown but clear. Mild sweetness up front, treacle balanced with bitter hops that have a hint of a floral quality to them, thin body, has a bit of a mineral salt tangy follow. Mahalo Jan for this Finnish treat!

Uit de fles (0,5l) geschonken. Mooi zwart bier met lichte schuimkraag. Aromas en smaken van mout, chocolade en koffie. Mooi in balans. Niet al te zwaar, medium body, een echte porter dus. Smaakvol in de afdronk. Mooi bier
