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 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.

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Nice dense head. Creamy on top and settles slowly. Milk chocolate aroma with plenty of roasted grains and a hint of vanilla. Color is black with a little brown around the edges. Nice and roasty flavor with a bit of dark fruit, mild coffee and a bit of smoke. Very little alcohol presence for a 9.5% brew. Little warming and tingling at the finish. Sort of dry. A little thinner bodied than I expected. A pretty good baltic porter but I expeced this to be a little sweeter as most baltic porters are.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Poured a black color, with some red around the edges, with a medium sized, creamy, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla beans, and light caramel malt. Taste of smoked malt, chocolate, roast, and oak. Finishes with dry fruits, and no alcohol at all. Awesome.
