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 .

Dark black/brown with an off tan head. Molasses and burnt toffee aroma. Black malt and molasses taste, very full, slight subdued alchoholic taste towards the end. Excellent beer!

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2004
very dark brown colour, fine creamy and slightly brown-tainted head, beautiful lacing, some chocolate and candy sugar, licorice and alcohol, full-bodied, very bitter, roasted bitter chocolate finish with quite strong alcohol notes - powerful and very good though the aroma is a bit weak in comparison with the rest

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2004
Another legend to taste. Got this from Pitfields as well. What a shop! You could go crazy in there, but that would be after bankruptcy. Chocolate and liquorice nose is complemented by a delicious looking opaque black. The head is spare but it sure sticks to the glass on the way down. A huge beer with solid warming characteristics. How they brew such an amazing beer compared to the average lager is beyond me. The final marvellous thing about this beer is that I enjoyed it with myself.

DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2004
Bottle from Pitfield Beer Shop, London. Dark black, with small creamy head. Solvent/choc aroma: sweet and glassy. Hmmmm, a platformed pleasure. Sharp first, then smooth coffee cream, finishing with a vodka shot, which delivers a slope of lingering flavour. Face contortingly tasty.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Sampled with omhper, tiggmtl, MartinT, muzzlehatch, and Rastacouere in Montreal. Thanks to Per for this bottle. Chocolate/malt aroma with mints, spiced peppers and a little bit of booze in the nose. Mostly opaque with a light tan head. Roasty, sweet chocolate maltiness dominate the start with some nice gentle hoppiness to finish. Nice and roasty.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Nearly black with a frothy tan head. Chocolate, coffee, malt, soy sauce in the nose. Robust mouthfeel. Flavor is good but the hints of soy sauce saltiness detract from an otherwise good beer.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2004
Chocolate, dark fruit strong aroma with notes of alcohol. Dark amber-brown with thin, tan head that lasts nicely. Sweet chocolate and marzipan, balances roasty bitterness perfectly. Thick, rich, velvety, luxurious - a pleasure in the mouth. Bottle enjoyed with DYCSoccer17, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Omhper and Rastacouere.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Brown to black in color with some purple around the edge. Starts out somewhat smokey then finishes on the sweet side with some warming alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 21, 2004
omhper in Montreal #12 (with MartinT,tiggmtl,Rastacouere,DYCSoccer). Bottle. My most-awaited beer of the night! Black cola body, brownish thick small head..big chocolaty, intensely alcoholic, heady nose..bitter, bitter chocolate on the tongue, espresso, vastly roasty but yet quite drinkable, not really harsh in the least...smooth, thick, supple mouthfeel. A delight, perhaps not my favorite but well deserving of its reputation.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
Nice light brown head thrones the deep brown hue. Very balanced aroma: delicate coffee and chocolate maltiness complemented by a profound and expressive roastiness. Hints at hay or straw which I love. Light alcohol presence. Very potent maltiness in mouth. Anise suggestions shine in the middle of that choco, coffee and vanilla desert. Slowly establishing roastiness provides a terrific flavor evolution. Very pleasant, very rich. Soft mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Yeah, this is a killer, baltic porter at its peak. Greatness, thanks a ton Per.
