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 beer I’ve been searching for three years... found it at Bevmo recently! Slight roasted malts, somewhat sweet, alcohol is not noticable at all, sweet, but a great brew!!!!

Bottle. Took me surprisingly long to track this one down, ended up snagging one from State Line. Huge, overflowing roast malt and dark chocolate aroma. Sweet berry and very faint wild weed. Opaque black/chestnut body with an enormous tanned head, rocky and lacing. Taste is very bitter and roasty, with impy character, heft from the alcohol for style but not overdone (certainly wouldn’t have guessed 9.5%). Red berries hidden but contributing. Velvety feel, medium body. Classy, very drinkable offering!

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 great potential but no finish. great aroma and beginnings but disappears and ends flat. more like a dark lager. 021711 Rich chocolate toasty aroma, black in the glass with a creamy tan head. Very toasty and malt driven, finishes dry though surrounded by the syrupy concentrate.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Bottle... Clear, almost-black lager with a burnt orange tint and a small, creamy, beige head. Excellent retention. The vinous aroma is of port, caramel and dark fruit. Lots of roasted, vinous, moderately bitter notes in the flavor. Also, lightly sweet and mildly tangy; a blend of Riesling and dry red wine. Full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Burnt, bitter, abrasive finish. The malts, hops, esters, etc. don’t really blend well for me. Not my thing, but thanks goes out to growler for giving me the bottle!

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Very nice. Nose is fairly closed, but the flavor is an assertive sweet roasted malt with enough hops in the follow-though to balance it out nicely. Kinda like a molasses cookie dipped in beer.

500 ml bottle from beastiefan2k. Pour is black with a nice big khaki head. There was quite a bit of layering initially, though that cleared very quickly. Aroma is roasted coffee and some nutty sweetness. Taste is well represented by the aroma with roasted coffee (caramel) sweetness and a bit of the nuttiness. Additionally, there is a nice sweet hop bitter finish. Palate is soft and still. As this warms, there is a slight hint of alcohol in the after taste. Thanks Eugene!

Black beer with a beautiful brown head. Flavor is roasted malt, coffee, and nice hop bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel. Finish is coffee, sweetness, and bitterness.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2007
It’s a black porter with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and caramel, just like the flavour, where I also find coffee and a light bitterness, that lasts quite a while. The sweetness is a bit too much, but I have to be fair to this one and try it again some day, since I had it right after the barrel aged Smörpundet Porter. 2399

Bottle. Woody coffee aroma with light astringency. Very dark brown with a moderate head. Creamy espresso flavor with moderate bitterness and mild astringency. Very nice.
