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 .

Dorwart (2375) - 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 (5336) - 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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2005
500 ml bottle. Rich brown, almost black with a dense, tan head. Aroma is rich in chocolate malts and grains with some grapes. The first thing I notice is how hoppy it is. Body is super smooth with a flavor of caramel covered dried fruits. Stick sweet and oily. Theres some smokiness to it as well but the finish is dry. A really good beer and my new favorite from, what country was that again? Oh yeah, Poland.

bierkoning (10208) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2005
Very dark colored. Roasted malt aroma with coffee, peardrups and raisin. Full bodied. Malty flavor, in fact with loads of roasted malt. Raisin. Coffee bitterness. Warming alcohol that bangs your head after a 15 hours working day. Whoahhh, abundant with flavors. Great beer. My thanks go out to Dortmunderfor this bottle.

Heavy, good for a porter, but not perfect. Will probably weigh you down. Maybe better for winter drinking, in the snow.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - JUL 16, 2005
The deepest of browns, like the Misissippi Delta after a rainstorm with a tan head that mostly fades but leaves a thin tan film on the beer. Prunes and alcohol with a dash of instant coffee and a piece of black licorice. Sweet, tangy, rich, potent. Thick bodied, sticky...some soy sauce and candi sugar. A cold night sipper, like a sifter of Brandy near the fireplace. Quite tasty, thank you Per!

jonas (5642) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2005
Bottle from Dortmunder - many thanks! Very dark chestnut, huge creamy brown-golden head. Fresh hoppy notes on top of burned caramel, berries and a bit coffee. Far more burned caramel and coffe than other baltics, sweet fruity note and a light alkohol burn in the flavor as well. Medium body - feels deceptively light - and is quite easy drinkable. Good stuff!

black body, a little ruby at the edges. medium tan dense foamy head. aroma of chocolate malt, also roasted malt. flavor starts very sweet caramel malt with a little dark fruits and creamy mouthfeel. flavor goes to a little soy sauce then licorice. aftertaste is dry and bitter roasted malt, a little salty vodka.
