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.

Ruikt zwaar zoet, naar een echte porter. In het hostel uit de fles. Appearance dus niet te zien. Goed mondgevoel en vrij lichte smaak voor de biersoort. Wel lekker!

czlowiekwiadro (828) - POLAND - MAR 11, 2017
zapach słodowy, karmelowy, lekko podpalany ale zasadniczo słodki, trochę toffi i śmietany gdzieś w tle, do tego dość silny alkohol. kolor ciemnobrązowy, pod światło ciemnorubinowy, klarowny i przejrzysty. piana beżowa, raczej mało obfita i niezbyt trwała. w smaku pełne, słodkie, słodowe, wyraźnie palone, popiołowe, mocny, palony karmel, kawa zbożowa i alkohol. goryczka wyraźna i spora, ale nie dominująca, palona, karmelowa i alkoholowa. piwo jest dość lekkie w ustach, zaskakująco mało gęste jak na mocniejszego portera. nasycenie średnio wysokie.

Cola black beer with a big mocha head. Aroma of ripe sweet dark fruits. Flavors of dark ripe fruits and red berries. Lovely sweetness typical to a baltic porter. Liquorice and mämmi. Medium body. I love sweet baltic porters and this is a good one.

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.

Rando7 (779) - 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.

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

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2002
A deep amber/brown. Light for a porter. Thin creamy head, decent lace. Nose of caramel, plums, grains, alcohol, slight oxidation and more. Thinnish feel hold some decent flavors, dark, sweet,caramelized malts. Touch of anise and a nice alcoholic warmth orburn depending how you look at it. Starts a bit harsh but once your palate settles, this baby becomes your best friend. Maybe a bit of oxidation but an enjoyable brew.
