COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Helsinki Portteri on vriltn musta, hyvvaahtoinen pintahiivaolut. Tuoksultaan olut on paahtunut ja maultaan kevyehk ja hieman lakritsainen. Portteri on vanha perinteinen Lontoosta 1700-luvulta perisin oleva oluttyyppi. Suomalaiset portterit ovat saaneet vaikutteita mys Venjlle keisarin hoviin Britanniasta rahdatuista juomista: kestkseen pitkn merimatkan ne ovat hieman vahvempia kuin perinteiset brittiportterit.

Ernest (7625) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draught (at Suomenlinnan). Head is mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of black olives (NOT vinegar/salt brine, but the meaty olive itself), berries, vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. From the very first sample at the brewpub, I knew we would be here awhile...these beers are brewed with great attention to detail. Clean, nuanced, and enticing.

Varsin mukava olut Brasilian litkujen jlkeen. Oli ihan makuakin ja suutuntumaa.

Musta olut, joka ei vaahtoa kytnnss juuri lainkaan. 10 sekunnin pst kaatamisesta vaahtoa ei ole en ollenkaan. Etiketin "hyvvaahtoinen" ei siis tss tapauksessa ole aivan perusteltua. Tuoksussa varsin vahvasti lakritsia ja paahteisuutta. Erittin houkutteleva tuoksu kutsuu maistamaan. Maku kahvinen ja paahteinen, jonkinverran makea. Keskitytelinen suutuntuma. Toimiva portteri!

suurjuust (3504) - ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2016
Dark brown beer, thick tan head. Nose is roasty, chocolate and hop notes. Flavor is a bit thin, roast, dark chocolate. Finishes with slightly acidic roast, hoppy-roasty bitterness. Lingering acidity and ashtray. More ashtray in the retronasals. Decent, though the ashtray is a bit unfortunate.

Kauge (1899) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle, shared. Dark-dark brown. Big fluffy beige head. Ooh, this is nice - just enough roast, bitter, sweet, even slightly fruity. Active, yet subtle carbonation. Very enjoyable.

martjoobolut (4080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle (from Liviko Alcostore). Pours dark brown-black with light brown head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, fruits, malt, sweet apples. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, fruits, coffee and some metallic notes. Finish is mellow roast bitter. Body is on the light side, carbonation is a bit too high for me. Overall: good brew.

thirstyrabbit (1846) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. Dark body, tall tan head. Modest roasty aroma with soft roast and dark chocolate. Very soft, almost airy mouthfeel. The flavour is subtle with gentle roast and modest hop bitterness. Clean and well done but feels slightly watery to me. I need a bit more roasty/hoppy oomph to enjoy a porter.

Marduk (7474) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2015
500ml bottle. Very dark brown almost black color. Medium size, thick brown head, stays. Roasted malts, bit of chocolate, sweetish, bit woody in aroma. Roasted malts, chocolate, woody, sweet, touch of very mild hops in taste. Long lasting chocolate and roast in aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Super easy to drink. Fantastic brew!

Black with a thin creamy head. Flavour is bittersweet with a nice roast malt finish. Quite warming.

nihtila (3506) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
8.2.2014. Hanatuopista kylmn mieto, hieman kahvinen tuoksu. Ei mikn tukeva porter, ensin hieman kahvinen maku ja jlkimaussa melko paljon suklaata, mys katkeroa. Ei huono mutta kaipaisi tukevuutta.

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Almost black beer with a sizable beige foamy head. Aroma is a bit light; dark bready and smoked malts, salty liqorice. Taste is a bit salty, bready malts, some fruity hoppiness, hint of metal. Quite nice and balanced. Co2 higher than medium, body medium, nice bitter finish. I rather liked this really, very drinkable. Nothing super special though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
