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 .

Thanks to richlikebeer. Cocoa-colored head with an alcohol, hoppy smell with strong scents of coffee and chocolate. Head hugs the side of the glass. Taste licorice, chocolate. Slight hot edge aftertaste. Coffee taste lingers on the palate. Dark almost black color. One worth keeping around!

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle,thanks rich. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Poured a nice deep black with tan head. Flavor was good chocolate, vanilla and caramel combined with nice grassy hops. Palate was oily and full that finished sweet and easy. Overall a nice treat indeed.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2005
coffee and licorice coming out of the aroma, with a hint of chocolate. pours a solid black body with a thick coffee flavored head that breaks down into little islands that float on top. lots of chocolate with licorice,grass, some vanilla, and caramel that are blended perfectly. a slick body, pretty thick for a porter, coats the inside of your mouth and the sweet chocolates make up the bulk of the aftertaste. this was very nice, and i owe BierKonig much love for sending this over.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2005
Pours a clear dark brown color with ruby highlights and a ring of light brown lace. Very attractive aroma of rich malt, chocolate, raisin, plums and figs. Excellent flavor of rich and slightly roasted malt with chocolate, raisin, plums and figs with a bitter finish. The body is medium with a slightly dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This is a rich and complex beer, great stuff.

Bottled at RBESG05. Pours a very dark brown, with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted, malty, hints of smoke. Taste is slightly sour, roasted, almost burned, toasted bread.

Pours jet black with a thick beige head. Woody, sugary, burnt nose, with some acidic hints. Sweet, roasted, coffee-ish, caramelly flavour with notes of chocolate and alcohol. Thick mouthfeel. Aftertaste is present for quite a while. Some notes of dark fruits in finish.
