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.

Fruity porter with agreat head, nice body & a rich palate. Usually folks buy it, store it for a year or more then drink it. it is a "winetr" brew found usually after mid-November.

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

Gorbalev (2912) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2004
My first Baltic Porter. Bottle @ Doug’s, Christmas 2004. Dark brown/orange pour. Very strong woody notes. Full bodied mouthfeel. I didn’t get a lot of alcohol in the taste, just lots of straightforward sweetness. Very good.

Has a black color. Smell is of roasted malts and dark fruits. Taste is good, malts, coffee, dark fruits, a touch of hops. Overall a fine beer worth seeking out.

500mL bottle with the great purple label. You know there just aren’t enough beers with black and purple labels, its a nice color combo. Love the bottle shape and embossing. Bottom of the bottle says beer in a few different languages. Not to mention the awesome price. 2.99 a bottle, nice. Without making too much out of this rating the beer is right on the mark for s Baltic porter. My only complaint is the aroma is over ally layered, a bit of metal sneaking in. The flavor is very strong on lagered chocolate and fumy ash. Pours with a pretty head. Long aftertaste and well lagered.

Pours a deep black color, topped with a decent tan colored head, retention is also fine. There is a very pleasant chocolate aroma mixed with some raosted aroma as well. The taste is slightly sweet and creamy, chocolate is dominant, followed by roasted feel and coffee. The finish is mildly bitter. All in all a very enjoyable beer.
