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.

Nice reddish color, with a decent sized tan head. Very malty caramel smell. Bread and caramel in the taste as well. I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Black pour, aroma is doppelbock nutty. Sweet first sip, with sweet cherries and bitter dark chocolate. Finish is bitter cocoa. Reminds me of a Bell’s Cherry Stout. More complex than I expected. Enjoyable.

Pours black with a thick and lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet and grainy European malt with hint of grass and chocolate candy. Flavor follows: sweet grains, some chocolate, hint of grass.

Øl (50 cl) købt på arbejdet til 30 kr. Øllen er sort med flot højt brunt skum. Den dufter ikke af meget, og meget mild i smagen af en porter. For mig er den nærmest kedelig - virker lidt flad

Ruikt zwaar zoet, naar een echte porter. In het hostel uit de fles. Appearance dus niet te zien. Goed mondgevoel en vrij lichte smaak voor de biersoort. Wel lekker!

Poured clear reddish-brown - lighter than I expected for a porter. The head was thick and tan, slowly diminishing, leaving almost no lace. Aroma was sweet - caramel, butterscotch, hints of cherries. Flavor starts sweet, with caramel being the main flavor, finishes with a slight roasted malt flavor that lasts for a bit. Body is medium, slightly tingly carbonation on the tongue, and the slightest bit of alchohol in the end.

Täysin tumma ja musta väri, viipyvä vaahto, tuoksusta ei jääkylmänä juuri saa mitään irti, maku lupailee tumman leivän tyyppistä aromia, pikkaisen lämmenneenä maku muistuttaa makeata leipää. Ulkonäyön puolesta ei moitittavaa, maku kyllä valitettavasti jää puolitiehen.

A bit too light body, but a nice, complex taste with an alcoholic kick.
