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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy nutbrown head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and leaves. Flavour is mainly dominated of the roasted malts, with some chocolate and coffee notes and some dough in the end. Slick mouthfeel, quite low carbonation for a baltic porter and a medium body. Overall a good beer, maybe a bit boring.

Bottle: Black with a ruby sheen, stable creamy tanned head; moderate sweet-bitter nose of dried fruits, roasted malt, vanilla and Wood; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, smooth and medium bodied; lingering dryish bitter-toasty finish, Wood, vanilla and dried fruits - again - included. Very pleasant...

stoigniew (56) - Łęczna, POLAND - DEC 29, 2014
Aromaty palone i kawowe, bombonierkowe, delikatnie kartonowe w tle. Aromat chmieli amerykańskich, wyraźna zalegająca goryczka, odrobinę kwaskowe. Alkohol niewyczuwalny. Piwo bardzo dobre - tylko pytanie: jakie to piwo? Porter? Imperial Black IPA (wg nowych standardów, jakie już zdążyłem napotkać)? Czy może solidny american stout? - Nie wiem - ale nazwa świetna - X - pozwalająca samemu sobie odpowiedzieć - co to za porter i czy w ogóle porter? Być może tak ale na pewno nie bałtycki jak ratebeeer to sklasyfikował - piwo polecam :)

Comes out smelling like Swedish Julmust. Taste is malty, roasted with a fair bit of chocolate. Somewhat flat mouthfeel unfortunately docks lots of points. Good but not great.
