COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zywiec Porter, pronounced "je-vi-ets", is a dark, strong beer brewed according to the traditional recipe from 1881, with the Munich malt and special malts for caramel and color plus the highest quality aromatic hops. Everything together creates a unique combination of taste. Production of this Porter was moved to Bracki Bowar in 2004 .

From bottle. Dark. No lasting head. Nose of mild raisin. Rich mouthfeel. Very well balanced between the Baltic raisin and plum notes with roasted malt. Not too sweet, not too bitter.

Bottle. Dark cola colored with a thick cascading tan head. Aroma is awesome. Chocolate to start, followed by dark fruit, toasted marshmallow and roast. Taste is mostly figs and a deep roasty flavor. Very tasty but has a nasty fusel note that pokes its head out every once in a while that's very unpleasant. Thin body for the style but it's adequate. Pleasant surprise.

Petkus331 (158) - Redford, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2014
A mild sweet raisin and dried fruit aroma with mild roast malt. Dark brown, almost black, thin white head. Sweet raisin very balanced with malt bitterness taste and some charcoal. Palate is filling and fizzy. Overall, wow! This was a very good Baltic porter!

Almost black, clear with ruby highlights. Powerfull aroma of rasins, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Full body. Alcohol and metalic taste detectable. Worth noticing are great price and avaliability.

If you prefer cheaper but still quite stylish Baltic Porter, it’s something what you need. Availability is great, but sometimes you can find worse barge where alcohol is unfortunely perceptible. However in this ABV is not really big disadvantage.

Mejs (81) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Pours clear, black with medium, short head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruits, some coffee. Small sour note from the roastiness in the taste, nice bitterness, long chocolate aftertaste. Alcohol heats up the throat nicely, but when warmed it becomes too visible in the taste. Overall, really good porter, one of the best in Poland

ScipioA (213) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Standard porter appearance, opaque black body, somewhat less of a head than I usually see. Charred and roasted malt aromas, with some underlying fruity notes present as well. Flavor is more of the same, but some sweetness and bitterness both become present. This has a great mouthfeel, thick and slimy and heavy. Strong alcohol heat in the mouthfeel, you can feel this beer going down almost like a shot. $2.49 for a 16 oz bottle at the little Polish grocery, nice to find a cheap but still good imported beer.

stoigniew (5) - Łęczna, POLAND - FEB 21, 2014 does not count
Jeden z najlepszych porterów bałtyckich w Polsce - w aromacie dominują suszone sliwki, w smaku gorzka czekolada i kawa skontrowana delikatnie zamulającą charakterystyczną słodyczą. Jest goryczka ale nuty słodko-kawowe dominują,a brak wyraźnej wytrawności jak dla mnie na minus.

atrox (106) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Jak na piwo koncernowe to ten porter zas?uguje na wyró?nienie. Mocno palone z aromatami ?liwek i skórki od chleba. Czasami jednak alkohol jest za bardzo wyczuwalny.

kacyper (164) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Bardzo ładna drobno pęcherzykowa, gęsta lekko spieczona piana. Długo się utrzymuje praktycznie aż do końca (a szybko nie wypiłem). Kolor czarny, nie przejrzyste. Aromaty palone, kawowe, lekko alkoholowe. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, lekko kwaśne i niestety czuć alkohol. Overall: Bardzo dobry porter choć tuż po terminie będzie naprawdę idealny.
