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.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Draft at Suomenlinnan Panimo.
Deep brown body with a dense but short-lived tan head. Rich unsweetened chocolate and cocoa powder. Creamy and frothy carbonation with a soft, dry malt texture. Quenching acid, salivating and quenching. Light mustiness and some sourish and acidic burnt grains in the finish but its very enjoyable and suits the beers dryness and body.

DruncanVeasey (8059) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Draught, Villi Win, Helsinki. Black with a beige rim. Complex aroma unfolding with beef stock, smoked oak, burnt plastic, nuts, Marmite and grilled red pepper as it warms. Way too fizzy and cold for a porter; good apple and bramble, chocolate, smoked nuts, leaf matter, red pepper. Much as I love em sometimes its a relief to encounter a dark beer with no brazen US hops.
