Helsinki Portteri on väriltään musta, hyvävaahtoinen pintahiivaolut. Tuoksultaan olut on paahtunut ja maultaan kevyehkö ja hieman lakritsainen. Portteri on vanha perinteinen Lontoosta 1700-luvulta peräisin oleva oluttyyppi. Suomalaiset portterit ovat saaneet vaikutteita myös Venäjälle keisarin hoviin Britanniasta rahdatuista juomista: kestääkseen pitkän merimatkan ne ovat hieman vahvempia kuin perinteiset brittiportterit.

28.12.12. Bottle. Light brown foam that settles quickly. The beer is almost black. Aroma of milk chocolate, malt, sweetness, a bit of hops. Tastes roasted, chocolate and coffee. Smooth on the palate, creamy. Bitter aftertaste. A pleasant, mild beer.

Bottle. Dark body, tall tan head. Modest roasty aroma with soft roast and dark chocolate. Very soft, almost airy mouthfeel. The flavour is subtle with gentle roast and modest hop bitterness. Clean and well done but feels slightly watery to me. I need a bit more roasty/hoppy oomph to enjoy a porter.

nihtila (2086) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
8.2.2014. Hanatuopista kylmänä mieto, hieman kahvinen tuoksu. Ei mikään tukeva porter, ensin hieman kahvinen maku ja jälkimaussa melko paljon suklaata, myös katkeroa. Ei huono mutta kaipaisi tukevuutta.

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Almost black beer with a sizable beige foamy head. Aroma is a bit light; dark bready and smoked malts, salty liqorice. Taste is a bit salty, bready malts, some fruity hoppiness, hint of metal. Quite nice and balanced. Co2 higher than medium, body medium, nice bitter finish. I rather liked this really, very drinkable. Nothing super special though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki, 14 Nov 2014) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of chocolate, cacao, coffee and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, coffee, liquorice, a touch of juniper berries and a dry finish with a good roasty bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Well made and tasty porter. Nice one.

0.5 l bottle from the brewpub in Helsinki. Strong dark color, short stable head, full body. Nice smokey roasted malt aroma of coffee, caramel and sugar. Average, not too smokey Porter. Sweet sugar ending.

minihame2 (305) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 4, 2014
Black body and a tan head. Aroma has malts and some brown sugar. Taste is mild with some bitterness. Reminds me of Finnish kotikalja. Mouthfeel is slick but thin. Very low carbonation. Decent porter.
