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 .

A little disappointing. Poured a dark black-brownish color with a decent but not impressive initial head. Lacing was weak and the head dissipated quickly. The aroma was chocolate-like and somewhat sweet, but not clean and crisp. The flavor was a mix of chocolate, caramel, and bubblegum. This one seemed to be hiding the same corniness of its pale lager amidst all that and a bunch of carbonation. Not a crisp and clean baltic, so this one took a sharp hit within style, although I’d drink it before many another beer out there. I was shocked that it was 9.5 abv, cuz hiding the alcohol was the only plus to this beer w/in the style, imo.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Bottle: Dark rown with a lovely light brown head. Aromas of alcohol, roasted nuts and brown sugar. Initially, there is a metallic trip to it, but then it subsides. It is a sweet porter and not as much of the charcoal (must be the Baltic). I like the thicker feel as opposed to the thin, oily feel of a standard porter. Great Polish brew. Could someone please give me a bratwurst?

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2006
(0.33L Bottle) Pours black with no head. Looks very similar to Coke. Aroma of alcohol and a bit of chocolate. Taste is of roasted, bitter coffee with a slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Rich and complex, and surprisingly not overly alcoholic tasting.

Aroma of roasted malty, coffee and light alcohol. Black colour and light brown, small size, rapidly almost fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Heavily roasted malty (almost burned), moderately bitter, licorice, coffee and fruity flavour. Good quality Baltic porter

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 15, 2006
(Bottle BB 15/06/06) Aroma of roasted malty, coffee and light alcohol. Black colour and light brown, small size, rapidly almost fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Heavily roasted malty (almost burned), moderately bitter, licorice, coffee and fruity flavour. Softly carbonated, dry and light alcoholic (warming) palate. This is very delicious beer, which is a perfect late night drink! 13/05/06

reebtogi (4375) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
This is a very strongly flavoured beer, to me tastes like cold coffee. Very bitter aftertaste. It’s just too bad that it didn’t taste as good as it looked.

Boletus (52) - POLAND - MAY 11, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Dark brown, thick and stable head. Aroma of dark bread but mostly of alcohol and organic solvents. Tastes like a bad coffee. Aggressive in the mouth, irritating bitterness. It’s a pity they can’t or don’t want to make Zywiec Porter what it was 20 years ago. I am surprised by the enthusiastic reviews it got here. They must send a different brew to the States.

Bottle (best before 8-9-06). Pours a very deep mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. The taste starts off with a little bit of hops then goes to a chocolate, roasted malt flavor. The falvor is pretty complex and well balanced. The 9.5% is hid very well, I would have put the alcohol around 6%.
