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.

Marstonlad (878) - Helsinki, - MAR 14, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2016 Bottle from Alko, Helsinki (as Malmgård X-Porter). Pours black with a medium-sized beige head. The aroma displays nicely roasty maltiness with notes of coffee, salted licorice, chocolate and also a hint of smoke – rich and refined. Taste is dryish, heavily roasty and as a pleasant surprise, in the finish also light bitter; very smooth mouthfeel with a warming presence of alcohol in the background. Flavours of rye bread, coffee, licorice and chocolate. Medium to full bodied palate. Deliciously rich, full-bodied and balanced Baltic Porter. On par with the legendary Sinebrychoff Porter, in my opinion.

MarcoBasile (319) - DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
Pours a black body with a huge creamy beige head that looks like it belongs on a cappuccino. The aroma is dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, roasted malts and raisins. The taste is staring off sweet with notes of strong dark, dry chocolate, 80%, coffee and brown sugar. Dry bittersweet finish. Very dry indeed — almost as if you’ve got flour on the tongue. The aftertaste is more on the sweet side as it warms. Sticky on the lips. Mouthfeel is oily and dry. Medium body. Soft carbonation even if it generated a massive head.

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.
