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 .

bhensonb (12128) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Aroma of dark malt and a little dark fruit. Dark brown color transmits some ruby notes, and the tan head is vigorous and lasting. Starts with a dark fruit quickly followed by carbonation and then very strong toasted malt. The malt tends to compete with the hop. Interesting stuff.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle. Pitch black colour with a nice big creamy brownish head. Aroma of chocolate, well roasted malts, dark lagered fruits and caramel. Flavour has a good roastiness and chocolate in the beginning, then more round and caramellic with a dry bitter roasty finish. The alcohol is really not all that noticeable. Great porter!

convex (31) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 21, 2006
Bought a bottle in Poland last weekend on the way home. Pours really dark, would with a normal zywiec disappearing head. has a rather pungent roasted aroma with a tangy alcohol bite, almost like an caffe corretto. it’s quite thick with a a very creamy texture, a bit of bitterness at the end. All in all a good beer, especially considering that it clocks in at 9.5%. Just not really my style. 330ml will set you back about 2pln
