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.

Pours almost black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is nutty chocolate as advertised and the taste is roasty and earthy, and very sweet. Leaves a delicious dark chocolate and yeasty aftertaste. Body is surprisingly light with an oily texture, I found it very peculiar. Nice lacing. Very enjoyable porter that reminds me of a barley wine.

PapaVillum (656) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2015
50 cl, flaske, 7,0 % ABV, BB: ikke tilgængelig, købt i Smag Først på Nørre Farimagsgade i København, 11. maj 2015. Sort, flot og ufiltreret finsk Baltic Porter med stor moccafarvet skumkrone på 4-5 cm. Kronen arbejder sig langsomt mindre, mens boblerne øger deres størrelse, og skumtoppen bliver til landskaber. Til sidst er øllet præsenteret med et par mm's top. Iøvrigt rolig i glasset og fantastisk smuk under ophældning. Aromaen er præget af bitterhed. Maltaroma af ristet/brændt malt og nuancer af lakrids. Efter "åbning" af glasset fremkommer en nuance af chokolade. Og senere en mere karamelagtig aroma. Dejlig sort/mørk/syrlig smag rig på ristet/brændt malt. Let syrlig indledning, let sødme og masser af bitterhed. Rund og fyldig krop med en medium karbonering. Mundfølelsen er frisk med en perlende fornemmelse. Konsistensen er glat. Afslutningen er medium bitter og medium lang omend let tør. Uden tvivl den bedste Baltic Porter, jeg har smagt! Toppen, når smagen går på at ramme begrebet Porter.
