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 .

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. Pitch black colour. Even my halogen desk lamp couldn´t shine through it. Small brown head. Coffeish and bitter-chocolatey aroma with notes of dark fruits, mainly plums and berries. Initial flavour profile is a heavy bitter-chocolate flavour, roastmaltiness, as well as plums and raisins. Then a light sweetness and caramel. Ends bitter-chocolatey and leaves a strong aftertaste, that´s somewhere between bitter-chocolate and medicine bitterness. But actually not bad. The only downside may be that it´s not exactly full-bodied, rather appearing a bit light, but also a bit fizzy, even after the beer sat for a while. Overall, a fruity, bitter baltic porter that is complex, yet not very demanding on the drinker. Thanks to moritzf for this long-wanted beer.

Light roasted nose, black color, big tan fluffy head. Medium toasted malt body, licorice sweetness, coffee bitter end - all subdued flavors but just a great balance and blend. Overall a great porter - NICE! Thanks, Ivan.

joergen (20500) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2005
Dark brown colour with a small but lasting beige head, that makes laces. Fruity aroma with notes of alcohol and liquorice. Nice flavour with lots of liquorice and chocolate, and notes of alcohol and hops. Aftertaste of chocolate and hops. It’s a bit amazing, that this good porter is cheaper than most other porters in Denmark.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle. Liqourice, treacle, a hint of coffee and rich malty aromas. Sweetness builds into mouthcoating syrup. Carbonation is artificial and intrusive at first - emphasising thinness of the body. Drinkable given the strength.

Bottle courtesy of BierKonig!!! Deepest black with mild ruby hues. Long lived tan head which leaves good lacing. Aromas of roasted grains, little hints of dark fruits. Full bodied and very smooth. Alcohol can be noticeable in aroma and flavor but not overpowering. Very nicely done Baltic Porter. Thanks Jeppe!!
