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.

Marstonlad (386) - Helsinki, - MAR 14, 2013
Pours black with a beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is very roasted, notes of coffee and chocolate and also a little smoke. Taste is dryish and nicely roasted; very smooth mouthfeel. Flavours of coffee and chocolate appear again. Medium to full bodied, sticky palate. Enjoyable, rich and full Baltic Porter.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Roasted aroma of licorice, smoke and dark cherry maybe. Straight black as you might imagine. Lactic-coffee taste, nuts and figs. Slimy rather than thick. Pretty good porter, but the region has many better.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
(bottle) Almost black coloured hue with a slightly ruby shine and a big and beige foamy head. Sweet and strong caramel-laden malty aroma with earthy and leafy notes, also hints of nuts. Moderately sweet and roasty bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Earthy roast-malt character with chocolate and caramel, backed by liquorice spice; mildly sweet and roasty bitter finish with chocolate and caramel; the alcohol is fairly well integrated. 12.VI.14

KansaiBeerLvrs (1589) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Alko in Helsinki, shared in Osaka. Pitch black pour with a crazy intense beige head. The aroma is all smooth roasty chocolate. Full bodied silky smooth with an active carbonation. This beer is tons of different chocolate, delicious smooth creamy chocolate. Very good stuff as all Huvila beers I’ve had are.
