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. Name has since changed to Malmgård X-Porter.

(50 cl bottle from Bunker Beer; BBD: August 2nd 2014) Pours black with huge, chocolate milk-coloured head. The head collapses after a while leaving something floating in the centre. The lace is nice. As I’ve recently found with many beers it’s possible to reinvigorate the head by circulating the beverage in the glass. Aroma is subdued roasted malt with a nutty impression and a hint of smoke. Mouthfeel is somewhere between oily and creamy, soft carbonation, medium body with a roasted finish. Taste is quite approachable yet also somewhat bland - neither particularly sweet nor bitter, roasted or ascorbic.

500 ml. bottle split by 3 as "Huvila X-Porter". Dark brown, low black hue, tanned head that quickly fizzes away. Nose is faint sourish red berries, licorice, herbal, sweet licorice, faintly metallic,... Taste is fizzy, bit thin, herbal, licorice, some red fruit, cacao, overall rather thin, dry, bit fizzy,... About okay, slightly flawed old school UK porter. Body is thin, fizzy, carbonation bit too high. Above average for a Finish beer.

bonev (696) - POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
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.

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.
