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.

Wow instead of another crappy Euro-lager the LCBO brings in something decent. Nice brown colour with almost no head. The nose is weet and malty and the taste is no different. Strong notes of caramel with a little bit of chocolate. Also vaguely fruity. Not BAd.

Baltic porter is a thoroughly misunderstood style. First of all, I believe it’s a lager, and has little resemblance to London style porter. This is a good example, being dark amber in color, with good caramelly taste and a slightly burnt toast flavor. Closer to a doppelbock, actually.

zomba (212) - Nokia, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours almost black with thick, quickly dissipating head. Aroma taste has malts. High carbonation for a porter.

qdog (201) - Cleveland, Mississippi, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Bottle at Dougshoemaker’s, dark amber, aroma of bread, raisin, and plum, nice taste of raisin with a hint of hops, followed by alcohol.

Very thick and creamy light brown head. Nice contrast with total black color. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and syurup. Thick palate. I have to say that the flavor is little bit disappointing after great appearance and decent aroma. Flavor is mild with roasted malts, bitterish and metal. No noticable aftertaste.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2007
Black, brown intense head. Aroma is malty, as expected. Liquorice in flavor, decent hops, bitter finish. Feels much lighter than it seems. Not nearly as good as Koff Porter, but a solid brew.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2005
I have a soft spot for Baltic Porters, and while this isn’t really a sophisticated beer, it’s got a good nose and flavour that reminds me of bread pudding. Not bad.
