COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Huvila X-Porter has a deep black appearance with a brown head. Creamy, slightly nutty, smooth chocolate malt nose. The taste is similar to its nose but also allows the taste of toffee to come through. The after taste then turns more chocolate with toffee. This is a rarity as not many top-fermented Baltic Porters are made any more. Our “hero” at the San Diego Int’l Beer Festival 2010! It is available on tap and in bottles in bars and restaurants across Finland. Since 2011, Huvila X-Porter is also available in shops in Estonia through Drink Baar. Last, but not least, Huvila X-Porter is also imported into the US through Shelton Brothers.

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Chocolate, coffee, prunes, raisins, roasted malts. Black body with tan head. Coffee bitterness on a medium level but lingering for a bit too long for my taste. Rather full, medium body, medium carbonation

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze czarnym z dosc obfita drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie intensywna czekolada, kawa jak i sliwka czy rodzynka. W smaku dodatkowo kakao, troche lukrecji i nuty palone. Dosc konkretna goryczka i wysycenie na srednim poziomie. Naprawde spoko porter.

jercraigs (10080) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2016
2016-11-30. Black body, nice tan head. 3++ Aroma is interesting and pleasant, light earthy touches. Flavour is similar, dry toast, dry toasty roast, light cocoa and chocolate. Muted hints of dark fruit. 7+ Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Body is adequate but thinner than my preference for the style. 3+ Pretty enjoyable overall. 7-8/4/7/3/15-16 Bottle courtesy of Timo from Finland.

Pours black with a huge, beige, long-lasting head, which doesn’t want to disappear even after several minutes. It looks like one on a cappuccino. The aroma is dark malts, black coffee, roastiness and lots of cocoa and dark chocolate. In the taste there is chocolate and coffee too, plus some dried fruits (raisin, plum). The finish is very long, chocolatey and roasty. The beer has a creamy texture and medium to full body; the carbonation could be lower though. A very nice porter, heavily but not overwhelmingly roasted.

sjorsvdg (470) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2016
Deze porter heeft een viskeus mondgevoel en is romig van smaak. Chocolade en koffie voeren de boventoon. Het is een redelijk droge porter, die niet te zwaar is.

Estebanik (892) - Lublin, POLAND - NOV 29, 2016
Z butelki intensywna czekolada. Piana zbita, bardzo drobna, leciutko beżowa. Aromat zajebisty - czekolada, ciemny chleb, śliwka, rodzynki. W smaku jednak głównie czekolada z pumperniklem, choć owoce z utlenienia dalej obecne. Nieco paloności. Trochę wodniste, acz gładziuuuutkie, nisko nasycone. Bardzo spoko.
