Woah. This is a seriously big beer. To say that Estonian brewery Pohjala has caught the attention of beer lovers across Europe is no exaggeration. This is a brewery that focusses on flavour, big, massive flavour. The porter, a dark beer that was as popular in the 19th century as lager is today, probably didn’t taste like this 200 years ago. They wouldn’t have enjoyed the chocolate milk aroma from the nose. It wouldn’t have had this delicate interplay of dark fruits bouncing off coffee. It probably wasn’t 7.8% either. There’s a reason everyone’s getting excited by Pohjala, and it’s beers like this.

Brewery Info

Põhjala was founded in Tallinn, Estonia at the end of 2011 by four Estonian beer enthusiasts and home brewers. Soon thereafter the company was joined by a Scottish head brewer, Chris Pilkington, with a few years of Brewdog experience under his belt.

Their beers span a broad range of styles, but with a particular focus on porters, barrel ageing, and ingredients from the forests of Estonia — as well as more contemporary styles. Põhjala currently exports to over 30 markets around the world and to almost every country in Europe.

Pohjala the kings of dark beers.

A rich, silky porter, that I can go back to time after time.

A plum like sweetness, but this is not a sweet Porter. Its just perfect, and on every order.

Dark with a small frothy head! This is a mostly coffee porter as hinted at by the picture of the coffee bean on the label. A delicious smooth and silky beer with rather good body.
