COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most delightful way to enjoy Saku Porter would be in front of a fireplace or in candle light during those long and dark winter nights. This beer keeps you warm all through the coldest time of the year. Saku Porter is the ideal accompaniment to roasted meats and game. The fact that porter is also perfectly suited to light various desserts, especially those containing chocolate, may not be that commonly known. The ideal serving temperature for Saku Porter is rather high, 12–14 °C, a typical quality for dark beers. Saku Porter, a unique dark beer with strong taste, is brewed of water, caramel, light and coffee malts, hop and yeast, however, only once a year – for Christmas. Similarly to classical porters, Saku Porter is a strong (alc. 7.5 % of volume) full-bodied beer. A special jewel to Saku Porter is its high, rich, brownish foam.

Note: Originally brewed in Saku at 7.5%, moved to Aldaris and reduced to 7% in winter 2009/2010.

Beerheart65 (895) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Aroma has dark chocolate and herbs. Dark red/black, big frothy head is beige and medium long and leaves lacing. Taste has roasted coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruits in finish, also salty licorice. More nuances as this beer gets warmer. Soft and full bodied, dry and roasted. Good nicely flavored porter for Christmas time.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle. Large brown bubbly head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Sparkling light mahogany color. Light dry malty feel, with a hint of light roasted malty notes as well. Hint of coffee as well. Over the palate came surprisingly strong notes, with sweet coffee, hint of chocolate and roasted malty notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with some counter bitterness. Lingering roasted malty and coffee finish. Quite nice actually.

Grzesiek79 (2974) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 10, 2012
REWELACJA. Bardzo dobry bałtycki porter. Nie za mocny ale dość rozgrzewający w przełyku. intensywny aromat słodu karmelowego współgra ze smakiem. piana mocna i tworzy się dość szybko i jest trwała. Ciemne piwo z miedzianymi refleksami

Bottle 500ml from Tallinn. Pours a dark brown reddish color with medium tan head that leaves some lacing. Medium carbonation, full body. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malt. Flavor is strong roasted malt, some chocolate and caramel and a little hops. Somewhat sweet too. Tastes better if it’s warmer.

maxwelldeux (3085) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2012
Nice roasted aroma really comes through on this one. Pours very dark with a moderate head. Maltiness is very apparent in the taste and is consistent throughout the length of the drink. Rich and heavier, this is very satisfactory, especially as a more of a dessert beer.

Marduk (2038) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours nicely, but foam dissapears very quickly. Nice dark red colour, but very faint smell. Sweet, lots of caramel. Overall nice drink.
