Ölbeat 068: Top Fuel Lab Genious Porter

Brewery: Top Fuel Beer Company
Country: Finland
Style: Porter
Abv: 7,4 %
What about the beer?
Colour is black with an overwhelming foam-bubbly beige head. Aroma has roasted malts, mild coffee and chocolate scent with a grassy note. Taste has a dry bitter and roasty first bite. Roasted to charred malts with bitter-sour flavours dominate. Towards the finish some salty sour espresso and dark chocolate join the palette, and there's a hoppy bite at the back of the mouth. Aftertaste has dry bitterness and roasted caramel malts.

Fine porter with surprising elements of India Black Aleish bitter and saisonish sour. The flavours actually support the leading taste of roasted malts. It's great to have a tasty porter with less coffee and chocolate flavours than usual. If porters are allowed to be slap-in-the-face fresh, this is it.


Raw, honest and straight-forward 1980's Finnish rock classic, OK? By the way, that was a rhetorical question - it's more than OK:

Peer Günt: Backseat (YouTube)

From the 1986 album Backseat, the song was written by band members Timo Nikki, Teijo Erkinharju and Teijo Kettula.
