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 .

500 ml. bottle, poured into a schooner. Thick tan head on a black body, leaving lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, roasted grain, chocolate, cherry, plum, slight nuts, brown sugar, booze. Well balanced flavor with a creamy, chocolatey sweetness of the malts offset by noble hop bitterness. This is a well crafted brew, and was a good deal at $3 a bottle on sale at BevMo. Packs a punch with 9.5% abv. It’s an imperial porter!

MojKufelekPL (230) - Wrocław, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Pite we Wrocławiu z beczki. Ciemne piwo o kremowej średnio-trwałej pianie. W aromacie nuty palone, kawowe oraz delikatne kwaśne owoce. W smaku wytrawne, słodowe, delikatnie słodkawe.

SangreSani (127) - Głowienka, POLAND - OCT 12, 2014
A lot of roasty aromas, some cereal, coffee and chocolate scents. Appearance is black. 100% opaque. Head fades out really fast. At the beginning there’s a light sweetness and after that the bitterness kicks in. Really nice and quite strong bitterness. It’s medium carbonated. The body is medium too. Oily texture. Probably the best beer with "Żywiec" word on the label.

gegwilson (1690) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle from a Gdansk off licence. Pours black with a quickly fading tan head. Starts quite sweet with good roast flavours, caramel and quite a lot of spiciness. There’s lingering treacle and coffee in the bitter finish with some nice alcohol warmth. Perhaps a little thin bodied and over carbonated, but otherwise very good beer.

"pours dark brown with a nice fluffy head and everlasting lacing on the glass. aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruit. feel is creamy and nice, if a touch thin only in the finish. flavor is similar to aroma. a touch sweet at the end, but pretty tasty."

Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and dark fruit aroma. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel, plum and raisin flavors. Medium full body and moderate carbonation. Slight sweetness that gets overwhelmed by roasted malt. Chocolate and roasted malt finish.

sturmthis (757) - Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Dark brown with reddish tint and almost no head. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is similar with very slight coffee finish. Thin palate and dry finish. Pretty good for a beer from one of the big breweries known for its pils.
