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 .

bottle. Pours brown with big nice brownish head. Aroma roasted, burnt caramel, some bread,malty, burnt wood, dark berries and plums- but every thing is weak. Taste is smooth, roasted malts, some coffee, burnt wood. Bitter finish. Well hidden ABV and well balanced. Good Porter with a good price. Nice

Pours a near black from a bottle. Aroma of chocolate. Very fizzy in the mouth, sort of like a bitter cola or Moxie. Good beer.

Warka z datą 26.05.2017. Zdecydowanie poprawiło się, od kiedy piłem je ostatni raz. Praktycznie nie ma tu słodyczy, tylko rasowe kakao, gorzka czekolada, czarna kawa... Piwo jest wręcz agresywne, charakterne. Mi się to bardzo podoba. Aromat mgłby być nieco bardziej intensywny i czuć tu lekki DMS, ale smak to wynagradza. Świetny porter na wigilijny wieczr. Zapraszam do mojego poradnika o piwnych winter warmerach na: piwazazywa.blogspot.com

koshack (1221) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna, obfita. W aromacie gorzka czekolada, praliny. Pachnie wytrawnie. W smaku suszone owoce, mocna nuta śliwkowa. Dominują suszone śliwki plus nuta kakao. Pełne w odczuciu. Dość słodkie w posmaku. Niskie wysycenie. Bardzo dobry i przyjemny w odczuciu. Bardzo dobry porter, zyskujący na leżakowaniu.

Zywiec is a great example of the Baltic Porter! Its not a Stout, its not a Dark Euro Lager, it is not an Oatmeal Stout, it is not a Schwarzbier. It is a dark, rich, slightly sweet but malty, and pleasantly strong piwo. Not too much coffee notes..not dry, not syrupy or cloying. The ABV is not boosted by cheap sugars/ The ABV (9.5%) is well hidden. No wonder it is not sold in a 6-pack.. Great winter warmer for cold nights. Great dessert beer! AND..it is not expensive. $1.79 a bottle(!) USA for a real beer! Zywiec got a winner here!
