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.

humlelala (1311) - - NOV 16, 2012
(50 cl bottle from Bunker Beer; BBD: August 2nd 2014) Pours black with huge, chocolate milk-coloured head. The head collapses after a while leaving something floating in the centre. The lace is nice. As I’ve recently found with many beers it’s possible to reinvigorate the head by circulating the beverage in the glass. Aroma is subdued roasted malt with a nutty impression and a hint of smoke. Mouthfeel is somewhere between oily and creamy, soft carbonation, medium body with a roasted finish. Taste is quite approachable yet also somewhat bland - neither particularly sweet nor bitter, roasted or ascorbic.

mice (818) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Musta olut ruskealla mokkaisella, aika pienellä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa paahteista makeutta ja suklaata sekä ehkä häivähdys lakritsaa. Maku lakritsinen ja paahteinen, hieman kahvinen ja ehkä aavistus vaniljaa. Maultaan parempi, kuin Oak Porter, koska viskimäisyys jäänyt pois.

Bottle thanks to Klimaet. Pours almost black with a huuuge, bubbly, off white head. Aroma has roasted malts, smoke, sweet licorice, caramel, light metallic. Taste is surprisingly sugary sweet, light smoke, roasty bitter and pretty one dimensional. High carbonation and a slightly watery body.

jampura (109) - FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
Hienostunut ja tasapainoinen, ehkä hieman liian kitkerä jälkimaku, mutta hyvin hyvin nautittava.
