3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml Bottle@Home (from Tallinn). Black appearance with smallish head. Sweet sugary aroma with roasted malts. Tastes also a bit too sweet for my liking with some roasted malts. Palate is medium and sticky sweet with medium carbonation. Sakus Pühade Porter is too sweet for my taste but still overall a quite nice dark beer.

Vielen Dank an Constanze für dieses Bier. Toll schokoladig im Antrunk, Mild-weich, sehr süffig. Die tolle Milchschokoladennote liegt über dem ganzen Bier und hält sich auch noch lange im Nachgeschmack. Für die 6,9% sehr süffig. Sehr toll!

Best winter Porter from Estonia. I know that it is brewed elsewhere, but it is marketed here. I actually was looking for it i nearby towns when it was gone from TLL. Beautiful beer.

Clear reddish black colour, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, red berries, quite a bit of caramel, malts, bread dough. Bitter flavour, roasted malts, caramel, bit sweet. Medium to full body. Finish cacao, milk chocolate, coffee and caramel. Hint of liquorice. Also works in summer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ olio. Rated on 07.05.2011
Aroma has licorice, roasted notes, coffee and hints of chocolate. Flavour has solvent‐like alcohol, licorice, some coffee and semi‐dark chocolate. The licorice notes are nice, but the solvent‐like ones are not. Much worse than the basic Saku Porter.

Aroma has herbs, syrup, crisp hoppiness. Dark red/black, beige head. Taste has licorice, roasted coffee, full and soft, low carbonation. Ok basic porter, nice flavors but mild aroma, good palate.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 500ml from ABC Beers. Pours a dark brown beer with a reddish hue through it. Forms a one-and-a-half finger of tanned head. Sweet, malty aroma, some coffee and licorice detected. Really subtle. Flavour goes like BOOM!. Full flavoured beer, full bodied. A bit unbalanced too the coffee and licorice bitterness, but still really tasty. Extremely smooth, no alcohol detected and little to medium carbonation. Great find from Estonia!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5l bottle. Dark brown color. Medium beige head, stays. Sweet roasted malts in aroma, dried fruits. Raisins, caramel in body. Slightly disappointing for a winter special beer. I was expecting more depth.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle from trade with ElDesmadre. After a loooong day with shopping, IKEA, re-organizing the entire bathroom, broken electricity and car problems, this Saturday the 14th is finally coming to an end, but before I crawl in to my bed I need a well deserved beer. The Saku pours a deep brown body with a small lacing and sidesticking brown-ish head. It’s not extreme on the nose, but I get chocolate and cold coffee hints next to something almost zesty-fruity and also some cocoa powder. It has a lot of flavor! Oheo! Did not expect that after the somewhat subtle - but nice - aroma. It’s really sweet with tons of chocolate. It’s quite overwhelming all that sweet milk-chocolate, but there is also a nice hoppy bitterness all the way. Quite smooth actually, medium-bodied with a average to soft carbonation level. Yeah, this was a tasty one! 14.04.2012

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 500ml as "Pühadeporter" (Koht, Tallinn)
Brown, almost opaque color, good steady creamy off-white head. Brown sugar, toasted aroma. Medium to full-bodied. Caramel, brown sugar, sweetish. Like stronger version of Saku Tume.
