COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most delightful way to enjoy Saku Porter would be in front of a fireplace or in candle light during those long and dark winter nights. This beer keeps you warm all through the coldest time of the year. Saku Porter is the ideal accompaniment to roasted meats and game. The fact that porter is also perfectly suited to light various desserts, especially those containing chocolate, may not be that commonly known. The ideal serving temperature for Saku Porter is rather high, 12–14 °C, a typical quality for dark beers. Saku Porter, a unique dark beer with strong taste, is brewed of water, caramel, light and coffee malts, hop and yeast, however, only once a year – for Christmas. Similarly to classical porters, Saku Porter is a strong (alc. 7.5 % of volume) full-bodied beer. A special jewel to Saku Porter is its high, rich, brownish foam.

Note: Originally brewed in Saku at 7.5%, moved to Aldaris and reduced to 7% in winter 2009/2010.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2005
Draught.Very dark with no head due to low carbonation. Aroma of actual liquorice which I’ve only ever smelled in one other beer. Flavour is nicely roasted, but not burnt malt and just slightly of a char grilled steak. Very thick and syrupy. Pretty darn good.

Syvän tummanruskea olut pitkään säilyvällä beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu Paahteisen maltainen, aavistuksen kahvinen ja suklainen ja varsin mielenkiintoinen kokonaisuus. Maku maltaisen makea, paahteinen ja salmiakkisen suolainen. Loppupuoleltaan suklainen sekä aavistuksen kahvinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Hieno kokonaisuus!

Estebanik (835) - Lublin, POLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Piana wysoka, acz dość gruboziarnista, trwała. Ładnie koronkuje, opadając. W aromacie sos sojowy, karmel, trochę pumpernikla. W smaku przyjemnie gładkie, wysycenie średnie, pasujące do porteru bałtyckiego. W smaku nuty praktycznie te same co w aromacie, z tym, że sos sojowy jest zepchnięty na granicę wyczuwalności. Daje rade.

SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Black brownish color with fast vanishing brownish frothy head. Notes of roasted malts, syrup, caramel, chocolate. Slightly wattery. Pretty easy to drink. Could do with some more depth and body tho.

Marstonlad (787) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Nearly black color with a big white head. Aroma is malty with dark bread and rye pudding, also some metallic notes. Taste is roasty but also sweet. Maltiness is moderate, the mouthfeel very soft and medium to full bodied. Flavours include rye bread, some chocolate and a hint of licorice. Alcohol does not feature. Well, this was decent but not up to the top Finnish porters like Sinebrychoff Porter or Malmgårds porters.

Rando7 (778) - Iowa, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle pours brown-black with medium tan head. Aroma dark malts, a bit sour. Taste dark malts, a little roast and caramel, Didn’t get much coffee or chocolate. Finish fairly clean with a bit of roast. Palate medium-thick, not quite syrupy Alcohol slightly apparent. Not bad, but there’s better Baltic porters out there.

Jultsu (773) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Täysin tumma ja musta väri, viipyvä vaahto, tuoksusta ei jääkylmänä juuri saa mitään irti, maku lupailee tumman leivän tyyppistä aromia, pikkaisen lämmenneenä maku muistuttaa makeata leipää. Ulkonäyön puolesta ei moitittavaa, maku kyllä valitettavasti jää puolitiehen.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - JAN 3, 2011
Baltic porter pienamente in stile, bevuta in bottiglia comprata al supermercato e pagata 11 corone (66 eurocent circa). Rispetto alla qualità da supermercato che si trova in Italia, ce n’è d’avanzo
