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 a deep black with a nice brown head. Aroma has tons of roasted malts and chocolate. Bits of coffee in there. Flavor is just what you want in a porter... malt, chocolate and coffee all combined in a really pleasant way. Great body, too. Perfect for winter with big meals. The price is right, too. I get this every time I eat at Polonia in the East Village and it never fails to impress me.

RSRIZZO (1914) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Had this beer on 1/21/2005. Aroma is a rich sweet roasted malt scent. Color is deep and black with moderate carbonation and a thin head. Taste is rich, roasted and bitter. Starting with full body it goes down with a sweet feel. Finish then comes on rich with a roasted flavor coming out, then on the very end it all turns to a full bitterness. Overall the flavors seem to come out a bit to strong. The sweetness comes in a touch too rich and the bitterness builds up to be to strong. Even though it seems to be too much it is still a drinkable beer.

A very enjoyable porter. Moderate amber head, black brown color. Fruit, spice and roasted malt on the nose. The palate is a nice balance of sweetness (first) and roasted malt on the finish. The best thing about this beer is the mouth feel. Very rich and smooth.

Jak sie masz. Pours deep reddish black with a quickly fading head. Dark fruit, candied sugar, coffee, chocolate aroma. Sweet malt, a hint of roasted malt, caramel and chocolate malt in the taste. I also get just a hint of hops, very subtle, that provide a little balance. As its warming, a little coffee bitterness and chocolate start to come through. Thick and stout like in the mouth with just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Great with some grilled kielbasa. Na zdrowie!

Bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. A little lacing. Smells of chocolate and roasted malts. Tastes of same, didn’t pick up any real fruitiness, but it was very nice. It hid the alcohol well. Good beer.

Defreni (2883) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2007
Flaske. Udemærket porter der dog har en anelse tynd mundfylde i forhold til de imponerende 9,5 % SOrt og med en del brændte noter, der dog ikke går over i en sødme som man ellers kunne forestille sig, istedet bliver den hængende. Så udemærket med ikke mere beskriver vidst bedst denne øl.

This beer was probably too cold when we tasted it. Nice tan head, sortofa red color to the beer when held up to the light. Taste was dark chocolate and sweet in the first sip, the second sip brought on the fruity characters that Baltic beers sometimes show. This beer is way too easy to drink for 9.5% beer, it could get you in trouble quickly.

BREWMUSKCLES (2473) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 19, 2007
black as night.though strange golden hues emit when held to the light. taste of alcohol and dark fruits such as cherries. ssmmootthh and foamy and strangely light. different feeling beer. i really only got the hops on the burp. i find hints of cocoa, vanilla, an chocolate in tiny amounts and in decending order. the aroma is more like vegetable malt. do not try to find the place that sold this beer for $1.59 for 16.9 oz i have already bought it all up! i am available for trade.... and you do want some. sweet and salty little potent number...

doublebock (540) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Dark black color, thin tan and bubbly head. Not a very stong aroma. Almost like a sweet champagne. Flavor is sweet malty espresso with a dry palate. Can’t believe this is a 9.5, perhaps the smoothest high octane I can remember

Ughsmash (7465) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle, BB 11/11/07. Poured clear, deeper brown with a tall, sticky cap of yellowy-brown head. The aroma picked up deeply-charred dark chocolate and dark fruits with a nice herbal and floral hop presence.. dry, dark, and delightful. The flavor held serve.. layers of deeply roasted dark fruits on top of and complimentary to dark chocolate and black malts.. sweet, yet sufficiently roasty.. mild coffee and herbal bitterness.. great balance throughout. Medium-bodied, and it filled out toward the back of the palate.. building alcohol warmth provides a warm and satisfying finish. Just a great beer!
