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, zarówno 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 smřr smak. Veldig god

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 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.
8/08/2014: also a bit of raisins and chocolate; a slight oily texture.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 it’s 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.

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.
