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.

Burnt flavors predominate...scorched caramel/roasted toffee/burnt brown sugar. A little thin-bodied...I usually like my porters more beefy than this, but still OK. Nothing complicated here.

butelka 0,5. Aromatyczne, czuć karmel, wiśnie, słód. oryginalny smak. Choć porter to nie mój ulubiony gatunek to saku trzeba docenić

pgliszczu (129) - - JUL 9, 2017
Wygląd: Brunatne, klarowne, dość obfita piana, ale dosyć szybko opada.
Aromat: Niestety alkohol, potem trochę czekolady i ciemne słody, owoce - może gdzieś tam w tle. Aromat dość intensywny, ale niezłożony raczej.
Smak: Smak to głównie ciemne słody w postaci czekolady i owoce, których brakowało w aromacie. No raczej pustawo trochę, ale alko już nie ma. A, goryczka raczej przyjemna. Zaznaczone, ale nie przeszkadza.
Odczucie: Wytrawnie, niskie nasycenie, poprawnie
Podsumowanie: Szału nie ma, nasze rodzime portery są raczej lepsze (choć trzeba przyznać, że również mocniejsze), ale też tragedii nie ma, głównym minusem jest jednak lekka pustka i ogólny brak złożoności itd. Na plus goryczka, nienachalna, a jednak zaznaczona i odgrywająca rolę w całości.

Nice reddish color, with a decent sized tan head. Very malty caramel smell. Bread and caramel in the taste as well. I enjoyed it.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 the color was light for a porter and transparent...the head was only a ring..the aroma was carmel berry dopplebockish..the flavors were carmel, nutty & berry-like..yet thin...alcohol is completely hidden..the flavor was lagerish yet had nutty, carmel, and chocolate notes that made it quite tolerable..a tad too easy drinking for 7% honestly
