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 .

I was so expected to taste this beer. Black colour with a thin laze head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and some hops. Taste is dissapointing. Eternal Alcohol flavour that colapses any other feeling. Very bad balanced beer. Not a quality product. Surprised for the high range in ratebeer.

Very good beer for this price. It is very alcoholic, but still not hard to drink. I feel warm, good, and happy, after just one bottle. It is perfect drink, if you want to dring small amount. There is some deeper aromas, but they fade quickly. I really like the smell, it reminds me of old town for some reason.

beleggor (124) - Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Butelka 0,5l, ostatnia warka, ekstrakt 21. Wygląd: Ciemnobrunatne z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana lekko beżowa, niezbyt duża, szybko opada. Zapach: Alkohol. Wstrętny, nieułożony, ordynarny alkohol. Zaraz za tym trochę ciemnych owoców, rodzynek, likieru czekoladowego. Smak: trochę czekolady, trochę owoców, i męczący posmak alkoholowy. Wydaje się mało pełne w smaku. Ogólne wrażenia: Niestety, wychodzi na to, że piwo dalej będzie jechać na swojej renomie. Obniżenie ekstraktu przy jednoczesnym zachowaniu poziomu alkoholu nie wpłynęło pozytywnie na piwo. Wymaga bardzo długiego leżakowania, świeże należy sobie odpuścić.

Bottle from WB Stores, a West Bromwich. Black beer with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is lots of licorice, coffee, a hint of chocolate, roast malts and dark fruits. Medium bodied. A beer I have been looking for, for two years now. Very good.

bobroman (570) - Torun, POLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Pleasant aroma of chocolate. Small head disappearing to thin layer. Clear, almost completely black colour. Intensive taste of bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Not too sweet, alcohol is well hidden.

Nydt fra flaske i pint glas. MHT 09-05-15. Stærk maltfylde, med tydelig karamel og vanilje -sødme, kaffenoter, lidt lakrids, brændthed og dertil også humle; citron. Fin gennemsnitlig lysebrun skumkrone, der er forholdsvis vedvarende og efterlade nogen blonder. Kroppen er uklar, meget mørk, sort, dog rubinrød nogle steder. Smagen starter med moderat sødme; karamel, brunt sukker og moderat bitterhed; citron og noget røget. Afslutningsvis tager sødmen til i styrke og bitterheden bliver også stærkere, med en røget afslutning i okay balance med sødmen. Teksturen er medium i tykkelse, olieret og med blid kulsyre samt tør afslutning, alkoholen er kraftig men ikke helt i balance. En meget sød porter, som jeg elsker dem, men der mangler dog noget balance, også iforhold til alkoholen.

Aroma is nice, mostly chocolate, some coffe and cherry. Pretty good baltic porter aroma. Brown 1 finger head with small bubbles, quickly disapears, stays only minimal line on beer with large bubbles in it. Nice lasing though. color is something between brown and black. From what I can see, clear. Taste: and here comes the trouble. Some chocolate, some coffe maybe. And a lot of alocohol. Alcohol is everywhere, a lot in bitternes, a lot in taste... this thing need to stay in my celar for year or longer and then I’ll maybe come back. Palate: as for baltic porter 21* its thin and a lot of alcohol. flat carbonation. Finish- alcohol. Overall: Alcohol is too high, way too high. There are way better baltic porters in Poland (Ciechan, Komes, Warmiński, Grand Imperial). This one really need to stay in cellar for a year or more to be drinkable. I’m disappointed. Although, it’s not totally bad beer. Just too much alcohol.
