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 .

Pours deep brown with a finger of foamy tan head that sticks around for a few minutes. Rich roasty aromas of coffee, caramel malt and alcohol. Strong, slightly sweet flavor up front that abruptly transitions into a long burnt bitter aftertaste. As others have mentioned, this has some off-putting metallic flavors. Overall I enjoyed it, but itís rather intense. Take your time with this one.

Skinnyviking (6733) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Pitch black body. Sweet roasted malt coffee aroma. Quite creamy and mild roasted malt coffree liquorice flavor with a low carbonation. Would never have guessed on 9.5# alcohol. For some strange reason it appeared a bit thinbodied.

orzech (48) - Resovia, POLAND - NOV 20, 2013
0.33l bottle. Pours deep dark ruby with uber-cool beige head. Aroma of caramel, honey, roasted barley and alcohol, with metallic notes. Flavor is rather roasted than sweet, high carbonation, surprisingly watery, strong alcohol notes and IRON, as if I was drinking blood. Not very pleasant aftertaste - bitter, roasty and alcoholic. I remember when I had it draught at itís home in Żywiec - it was definitely much more enjoyable.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Bevmo. Best before date: 3/29/14. It pours dark brown with a large frothy tan head. The aroma is a bit soapy with a touch of acidic roasted malts. Mild cocoa. The flavor is very strong with alcohol.. bitter, roasted with mild notes of bread and plastic. A little rough around the edges. Itís a powerful beer that seems to embrace itís strength rather than try to subdue it. It has a phenolic, plastic, bitter, burnt, dark chocolaty finish. I thought I would like this one, but it was a disappointment.

radzik5555 (246) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Butelka 0.5L. Prawie czarny z brunatnymi refleksami. Piana w kolorze kawy z mlekiem, drobnopecherzykowa. Znaczy szkło ale szybko opada. Aromat alkoholowy, troche ciemnego pieczywa. Po zamieszaniu piwem pojawiaja sie nuty slodkie i guma balonowa. Ogolnie aromat malo wyrazisty. W smaku gorzka czekolada z alkoholem oraz ciemne pieczywo. Wysycenie srednie, piwo slodkie, pelne. Finisz lekko slodki z goryczka alkoholowa i palona. Sredni porter baltycki z kiepsko ukrytym alkoholem. W Polsce wiele lepszych mozna dostac z latwoscia. Przez duza ilosc wyczuwalnego alkoholu piwo musialem pic malymi lykami.
