Oo XO is Pohjala’s barrel aged imperial beast of a stout. Aged in Cognac barrels, the first thing you’ll notice is that the cognac really has taken. You’ll also pick up deep, dark chocolate, raisins and a little liquorice. The taste is more of the same, laced with a heavy booziness. The booziness works incredibly well with the flavours though and you’ll never find it over powering. A beer that will put you in the mind of smoking rooms, tweed jackets and cigars. Enjoy as a post meal treat.

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.

A special special porter
Review by
Part of the fabulous Pohjala Cellar Series. This is a beautifully balanced sipping porter.
The cognac barrelling is subtle on the nose and on the pallet, and there is a wonderful warmth to the beer.
Coffee and dark chocolate come through strongly.
Liekd this beer so much that I even paid over £10 in a bar a few weeks later to have it again
