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.

0.5 bottle from Alko. Almost black colour, small light brown head. Smells and tastes of a dark beer with some sweetness. Yep, this is really nice as dessert, especially in the middle of winter when the outside temperature is 20 degrees below zero (in Celsius scale). Nice, but not great.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2014 Rerate, tap@brewery. Black. Sweet licorice, some roastedness. Soft smooth. Lighter bodied than I would hope. Real nice though.

old score: r3.2. Bottle. Black. Soft sweet licorice, ash, roasted malts. Light mediium bodied, dry. Roasted malts and such. Ok, perhaps a bit thin as a breakfast drink.
