Ölbeat 241: Ôllenaut Suitsu Porter

Brewery: Õllenaut
Country: Estonia 
Style: Smoked Porter
Abv: 5,4 %
What about the beer?
Colour is black with a medium tan head. Aroma has fireplace smoke, charcoal roast and some malty hints. Taste begins with intense burned smoke. Smoke and charcoaly roast take over with some dry bitterness. Towards the end malty and roasty bitterness gets mixed to the flavours. Aftertaste has roasted bitterness and malty sweetness.

Tasty smoked Porter. Strong smoke in the start rounds up nicely to roasted malts and bitterness. Fine brew from Ôllenaut once again.


For some reason, I had to get a Pearl Jam song to be paired with this one. The calmness after the start encouraged me to choose a ballad instead of aggressive grunge. Probably a love song fits the beer, I don't know. The reason has vanished into...

From the 2000 album Binaural, the song was written by Stone Gossard.
