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.

martjoobolut (793) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 25.03.2015. Pours black with light tan head. The head stays. Aroma is caramel, potatoes, and burnt sugar. Taste is sweet, caramel, burnt sugar, mild dark chocolate, and slightly metallic. Finish is burnt sugar sweet and bitter. Overall: drinkable for macro brew, too sweet for my taste.

Hullujussi (17) - Tartu, ESTONIA - OCT 7, 2014
50cl from Karlova Meie pood. Cola like appearance. Not tottaly black. Smell has some coffee notes. Otherwise it quite modest. Tastes like porter should taste. Quite allright beer. Best from Saku.

So what do you say about another mediocre porter? Well it is darker with a thin quickly discipating tan head. The nose and taste are just about the same, bland dry malts and just a dab of caramel. Porters suck.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Bottle. Apparently it was a bit of a fluke that this ended up on the shelves of the LCBO instead of a private order. Interesting. Ruby amber body, moderate off white head. Sweetish malty aroma is muted. Fruity sweet malt with a touch of caramel. Palate is light. Not bad, not great either. Toronto Christmas Party 2004.

Thanks to whoever brought this to the Toronto Christmas Party ’04. Raisiny nose - Quite sweet. Orangish thin head. Flavor is malt, rasins and grapes. Alcohol is apparent in the finish. Not like any other porter I’ve had.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2010
4/29/10. New country tick! The pour is a not quote opaque black with a huge brown head that fades to a little guy in a bit. The aroma is slight roasted malt with lots of tinny metal. The flavor is also very metallic with undertones of dusty chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Nothing special here.

Finn (4263) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2011
Flaske 0,5% fra Alko Muonio. Dyp rød - nesten svart på farge. Høyt farget kremskum. Forsiktig aroma av røstet malt & litt kaffe. Litt vassen smak: Svakt syrlig med et økende innslag av bitterhet. Tørr avslutning. En lettporter.
