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.

This is an interesting beer. Body is too light for style. The color is a gorgeous red. Hold a light up to it, and you’ll see what I mean (about the body too). Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a head. Pretty hoppy for an Eastern European brew, but I think that’s what makes it memorable, as opposed to other Eastern European beers that you forget about 10 minutes after you drink them. I’ve bought it before, and I’ll buy it again when I’m in the mood.

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

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 the color was light for a porter and transparent...the head was only a ring..the aroma was carmel berry dopplebockish..the flavors were carmel, nutty & berry-like..yet thin...alcohol is completely hidden..the flavor was lagerish yet had nutty, carmel, and chocolate notes that made it quite tolerable..a tad too easy drinking for 7% honestly
