COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1592) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2013
Taster at the brewpub, 10 euros. 5.6% a very dark brown with a reddish tinge at the edges. Nice rich chocolate aroma with some kind of spice note, possibly cinnamon. Great mouthfeel, smooth as silk. Chocolate at first and some roast coffee in the finish. Excellent stuff for just 5.6%, again not complex but just an extremely well made porter. My fav so far.

A dark black body with a little brown foam. Nose has notes of liquorice, dark bread and spices. Taste is thick, malty sweet and with a minisqule dryness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is soft and full.
