It is strong. Malty but with almost a hop abrasiveness. Its crazy, its really good. I got this for 2 dollars a bottle and to be honest this is the best 2 dollars ive ever spent. So yeah.

MRMedellin (173) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - APR 12, 2014
Dark brown beer with a beige an stable head, strong roasted malt aromas like nuts, cereal, caramel and chocolate. In palate it has a full body, with a creamy texture, and chocolate raisins and prunes flavors; a strong bitterness and coffee remain aftertaste, although with an alcoholic finish

Piana po nalaniu do dużego kielicha dość skąpa, chyba za bardzo schłodziłem, albo co. Po ogrzaniu w rękach do wyższej temperatury uwalnia całkiem przyjemny aromat, gorzki, kawowy. Tak też smakuje, pozostawiając dobry finisz. Czuć jednak alkohol, zarwno w aromacie, smaku jak i cieple w przełyku. Summa summarum żywiecki porter to dobre i satysfakcjonujące piwo.

Mork skum som varer. Masse malt smak. Antydning av kaffe og sjokolade. Litt smr smak. Veldig god

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołw, POLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle. Lots of nuts, rhubarb, roast, some licorice, some chocolate and a lack of metallic notes that sometimes find their way into this beer. Full body with a strong, roasted bitterness in the licorice laden finish. The flavour upfront is more caramel and dried fruit, going through breadcrust into the finish. Alcohol, nuts and chocolate retronasal. Too alcoholic and astringent for me.

Bottle fron a local shop in Krakow, enjoyed at home. Pours black with a medium dirty white head. Smells sweet with some hints of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, liqorice and alcohol. An ok beer.

smroush (9) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2014 does not count
Quite dark; little head that is light tan. Aroma has toffee and coffee like notes. When tasting you first notice the sweetness, probably due to the 9% alcohol. Then I notice coffee flavors with just a hint of licorice. A little candied sugar. Good long finish. Just a tad thin though. Bottom line: a very good beer. Unfortunately seems to be getting harder to find in the USA.

Pours black, with brown/red reflexes. Nice big tan head. In aroma mostly raisins and plums. In taste roast malts, some dark chocolate. Dry, full body, medium bitterness. Iron is noticeable. Lively carbonation, maybe to much.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Bottle at home. Pours opaque black with ruby accents. Awesome, lasting beige head. Dark chocolate and roasty notes paired with dried fruits. Some nuts and hoppy notes, from the smell all alone I can tell its bitter for a BP. Good roastiness. Full flavour packed with bitter chocolate, coffee and roastiness coming out right before hoppy goodness. Medium carbonation, full body, sticky mouthfeel. Good stuff.
