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.

CanCrusher (670) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle 0,50L. Dark brown mahagony colour with small, light brown creamy head that sits down quickly, but doesn’t dissapear. Light malty aroma of caramel, chocolate and roasted malt. Light sweet, cacao taste with moderate bitter aftertaste with mild mouthfeel. Medium to full body, oily texture and light carbonation. Nicely balanced and lighter than Saku Puhade Porter. Very mild and drinkable.

Dermi (660) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2011
50 cl, bottled. Alc vol. 6.9 %. Pours clear dark red with a nice tan head. Aroma: Roasted sugar and coffee, malt, matured fruits. Taste: Sweetish, some pleasant salty compound. Nice mild supportive bitterness. Palate: Soft, quite light, yet not too watery. Noticeable soft carbonation. Pretty good but little too sweet/much caramel for my taste preference.

Bottle - pours out pitch black with medium thick lingering head. Nose of molasses, caramel, roasted malt. Taste is of cane sugar, sweet malt, caramel, and molasses. Good way to finish a meal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bricks (633) - Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2011
A strange smell of grape from this one, but good -- not so for a beer, but good. Tastes like dry grapey porter with hops mixed in. Worth a try, but nothing more.

ectuohy27 (627) - ESTONIA - OCT 21, 2012
Decent for style--it’s a less cloying, if thinner, BP. Nice alcohol burn complements the caramel malt. Would say "great for Saku", but in fact it’s a Latvian beer in terms of production, so Estonia shouldn’t really claim this one

SperkeleForce (610) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Black brownish color with fast vanishing brownish frothy head. Notes of roasted malts, syrup, caramel, chocolate. Slightly wattery. Pretty easy to drink. Could do with some more depth and body tho.

BitchPls (590) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Cola black beer with a big mocha head. Aroma of ripe sweet dark fruits. Flavors of dark ripe fruits and red berries. Lovely sweetness typical to a baltic porter. Liquorice and mämmi. Medium body. I love sweet baltic porters and this is a good one.
