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.

Moebbels (422) - FINLAND - MAY 6, 2015
A pitch black body covered by a quickly settling brown head. Nose has heavy notes of chokolate, coffee, caramel and rye. Taste is quite sweet so much as to almost feel cloying. The finish is surprisingly lightly bitter and dry. Carbonation is fairly low and palate feels quite heavy. A nice, very rich baltic porter.

cards04 (2117) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
A really nice and flavourful porter. I really enjoy this style. Pours a dark cola colour. Crazy amounts of head on this. Aromas of dark malts, dark fruits, coffee, dark chocolate. Nice bitter and sweet flavours. Delicious.

mateuszk (348) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle. Black with small, beige head. In aroma pumpernickel and bready notes, also low roastiness and fruitiness. In taste roasted malts, again pumpernickel and fruitiness (dried fruits). Soft carbonation, sweet in the end. Lacking a bit body in my opinion (it’s only 17,5 Plato). But in overall ok.

mkam (322) - POLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with a small head. Aroma is not very complex: mainly aroma of pumpernickel bread with some fruity notes. Taste of roasted malts, pumpernickel and more fruity than the aroma. Medium, soft carbonation, quite sweet finish. Not a bad beer, but in comparision to stronger baltic porters (>20 Plato) is not as good.

Turtles (179) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2015
500 ml bottle. Earthy aroma, dark dried berries. Lovely sweet / bitter taste, it begins with sweet plums, figs, raisins and goes into chocolate, coffee, and tobacco. Very smooth and creamy taste. Well-balanced flavors.

SlackerMads (1964) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a reddish hue and a large tan head. Nose has roasted malt, light dust and fruity notes. Flavour is dominated by roasted malt, coffee, nuts, light brown sugar, dark dried fruits, vanilla. Medium body, lively but pleasant carbonation, some sweetness, subtile acidic, balanced bitterness. Pretty straight forward and drinks well with no rough edges.

Vells (899) - Riga, LATVIA - MAR 29, 2015
Nothing fancy here, yet quite smooth and well balanced brew. Lovely roasted malt background, decent coffee impact, choco, light licorice, some light citrusy fruitiness lingering around, vanilla. Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Feels quite smooth. Lovely brew.
