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.

Marstonlad (716) - 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.

Bottle from Alko. Pours almost black beer with brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, licorice, dark bread and a bit of smoke. Taste is very roasty, dark bready, a bit of licorice and ashy. Aftertaste is nicely bitter and leaves coffee & dark bread taste to mouth. Nice porter.

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.

Hienostunut ja tasapainoinen, ehkä hieman liian kitkerä jälkimaku, mutta hyvin hyvin nautittava.

flying_pig (1381) - SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2016
400ml on-tap at Taphouse, Copenhagen (40 Danish Krone):
Quite a thick & creamy beer that was loaded with roasted malts & a nice earthy flavours that featured a pleasant chocolate taste; this added some sweetness to proceedings & opened things up nicely for the vanilla & caramel sweetness that followed. The beer, on the whole, was a very nice one & a good introduction as my first Finnish beer with a good balance & plenty going on to keep you interested.

Tried on Warsaw beer festival (4th edition). Roasty aroma. Very good, classical appearance. Nice taste with roasty and chocolate notes. Fine aftertaste. Such a good, normal baltic porter.

Draught at Tap 10, Cph. Pitch black with a fluffy, tanned head. Sweet, roasted aroma with dark malts, chocolate, coffee, caramel, fruity notes and herbal grassy hops. Taste is lightly sweet and roasted. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Lasting sweet and roasted finish with a lingering fruity note. Lovely Porter.

Bottle, few days after bbd. Comes with middle-sized beige head, growing after pouring. Full-bodied, intense chocolate, sweet but not ’sticky’. Great porter.
