Ölbeat 242: Pühaste Patt

Brewery: Pühaste
Country: Estonia
Style: Porter
Abv: 6,6 %
What about the beer?
Colour is black with a large beige head. Aroma has sweet roasted malts, vanillaish chocolate and coffee. Taste starts with roasted liquorice. Bitter roasted malts and dark chocolate take over. Near the finish vanilla-spiced flavours get mixed to the dark chocolate. Aftertaste has dry charcoal and bitter cocoa.

Nice and soft Porter. Dark chocolate dominates, roast plays the bass and bitterness gives the drum beat. Wasn't the freshest batch, so there was a watery mouthfeel. Good brew from Estonia, still.


This was almost purely a choice by the name. The Estonian word 'patt' means sin. But since the Estonian brewery was nearly new to me, I chose a song from a Swedish hard rock band that had been hiding from me before.

From the 2009 album In Voodoo Veritas, the song was written by Sparzanza.
