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 7.5%, the production has moved between Aldaris and Saku.

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.

W zapachu alkohol i orzechy włoskie trochę paloność. Czarne nieprzejrzyste, duża piana. W smaku: ciemny miód/ciemny karmel, skórka od ciemnego chleba, śliwka. Trochę rozgrzewa w gardle,przyjemnie. Dużo ciała ale krótki finisz. Jest ok. Piwo ciężkie i mosiężne.

Porter raczej słodki niż goryczkowy, sporo karmelu. Wysycenie w sam raz. (Ocena przeniesiona z innego portalu piwnego).

This is an interesting beer. Body is too light for style. The color is a gorgeous red. Hold a light up to it, and you'll see what I mean (about the body too). Unfortunately, there wasn't much of a head. Pretty hoppy for an Eastern European brew, but I think that's what makes it memorable, as opposed to other Eastern European beers that you forget about 10 minutes after you drink them. I've bought it before, and I'll buy it again when I'm in the mood.

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

DaSilky1 (2607) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2003
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

CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2004
(5ooml bottle) Pours a thin, white head with a copper body. Slight whiskey nose with marshmellow and bubblegum on the palate. Very interesting porter.

This is a ok Baltic Porter. Roasty, malt, and toffee flavors. Finishes clean, smooth, and creamy.
