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.

Strykzone (7714) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Am almost black beer that has a nice tan head. Good retention. A nice nose that is dark chocolate and is grainy. It has a nice feel. I also taste tobacco juice and soy. It goes from soggy to sour, odd though that be. This cannot be considered a great porter.

muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle 500ml from Tallinn. Pours a dark brown reddish color with medium tan head that leaves some lacing. Medium carbonation, full body. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malt. Flavor is strong roasted malt, some chocolate and caramel and a little hops. Somewhat sweet too. Tastes better if it’s warmer.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Fairly light colored for a porter. Bubbles sticking to the side of the glass, but they may have more to do with how the glassware is washed than the beer. They diminished after a couple minutes. Rocky, tan head. Fairly, metallic malt aroma. A little spicy. The aroma gets me thinking about all the winter releases I can't wait to drink. A porter with neither chocolate, nor coffee. To be honest, I miss those flavors a little.
