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.

Butelka 0,5l Kolor ciemnobrązowy, klarowne, piana znika szybciej niż się pojawia. Aromat i smak karmelu z lekkim odczuciem goryczki i alkoholu, który czuć. Czekałem na lepsze

Sweet caramel and dark fruits in the aroma. No head. Taste of licorice and caramel sweetness. Thin body. Not very good, the regular version is much better.

Erzengel (7760) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2014
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.

Martinus (4498) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2013
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.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
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.

Beerheart65 (1410) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2012
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.

MrHangover (3952) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2012
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!

Marduk (6331) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2012
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.
