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 .

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.

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.

Nice Baltic porter that hides the abv fairly well, but leaves just enough to let you know that this is to be taken seriously. Lovely chocolate and roasted nut aroma and flavor, thinner than I would have expected. Nice finish that leaves behind a taste of resiny hops.

slawek (90) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Aroma: Strong smoked plum, with roasty hints Apperance: Small head reducing itself to a ring, nice lacing. Black color, but with strong light i can see its clear. Taste: medium sweetness with light bitterness, some sourness from dark malts. Palate: This is full body beer with oily texture. Very low carbonation, proper for such strong beer. Finish is astringent a little. Nice, warming beer for winter. Żywiec Porter is widely avalible in Poland, every beer geek visiting Poland should try it. ;)

InPivoVeritas (231) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Deep brown with nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, plums and bread crust. Very creamy with pleasant alcohol note. A little bit metallic. Great baltic porter.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Deep brown, nearly black colour with quite impressive head. Chocolate and coffee aromas with a hint of roasted notes. Slightly metallic. As the beer warms up prune aroma starts to appear and a bit of alcohol can be noted. Medium sweet, but can be considered as dry in comparison to other baltic porters. Creamy, full bodied. Medium carbonation. Good and complex beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 Under not to thick head there is a richness of taste and aroma. Nose somewhere near roasted coffee and dark chocolate with distant aroma of cherry wood. This porter has initial rather dry tasting profile where later on the roastiness is balanced by sweetness coming from the malts. Despite it’s 9,5% abv the alcohol isn’t dominating the brew but nicely warms the throat as the beer goes down. An icon of style. Perfect choice for long term maturing.

marulla (56) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Not bad, but nowhere near the best baltic porters. nice colour, personally i didnt like the foam, the bubbles vere a tad too big. weak aroma, with detectable chocolate and coffee in it. in flavour it leaves an unpleasant alcoholic aftertaste.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je výrazné kávové prostoupené sladem. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná, vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je temná. Chuť je hořce čokoládová s nádechem kávy a lehkým alkoholovým akcentem, celkové je velmi rázná a robustní, finiš je středně kávově hořký a držící. Celkově se jedná o velmi zajímavý porter, robustní chuti, což mu dává horší pitelnost, ale za to je to velmi zajímavý průběh.

Bottle. Poured a near pitch black color with some dark brown edges to it. Creamy, medium sized tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, some dark fruit notes. Flavor is nice, creamy toasted and roasted malts, creamy caramel. Dark fruit notes. Pretty darn good.
