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 .

bottle. surprisingly a very cheap bottle at Frontier in Buffalo, IIRC it was about $1.80 for the half-litre. pours a very deep brown body with a slight ruby tinge and a medium tan head. the aroma is bold and beautiful. chocolate roast abound among a certain creamy milkiness. silky smooth chocolate body with toffee contribution. the alcohol component is felt throughout but doesn’t divert attention from the tastiness of this beast. very good.

My first Baltic Porter experience, thanks to MDS. Thanks a bunch Mike. My first impression of this beer was a good one. The pour was like motor oil, opaque, almost black, with just the smallest amount of light visible. The head was mocha, and was thick, with good retention. In the nose, lots was going on. Huge roasty notes filled the room. I could litetrally smell them while standing away from the glass. Upon further examination, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, toffee and tobacco were all screaming at me. Very appealing. Silky coffee and chocolate filled my mouth, leaving tingling sensation. Burnt tobacco and roasted malt also very enjoyable. Bitter hops chocolate finish, and the alcohol was noticable as it warmed, but it was good. Definitely a sipper, and certainly worth of the average rating it has received. A very good porter, probably the best one I have had to date. This is a style I will definitely keep an eye out for . Thanks for sharing Mike!

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2008 (bottle - 500 ml) Dark brown pour with red highlights, about a quarter inch of tan head and good carbonation. Light and malty aroma with a nice backing of roasted malts and chocolate. Sweet and malty flavor, very chocolaty and roasty with a smooth finish and a slightly bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very thick, very creamy. All around awesome beer.

Very malty nose. passes the floodlight test (can’t see through it.) Huge Tannish brown head that goes slowly. Weird palate bitter at the tail. Malty right up front with coffee bitterness in the middle with some fruity notes that twist around.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Opaque dark brown body with a large tan head. Aroma is grainy malts, with some smoke, nuts and sweet caramel. Sweet malts, followed by some charcoal and smoke. Notes of licorice and a good amount of hops in the finish. Alcohol is hidden fairly well, and there are some strong roasted barley and coffee notes in the aftertase

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2005 (Best before 8-19-2006) A beguiling bouquet chock full of nuts, smoke, rye bread, and mild hops has me eager to take a sip of this black beauty. The palate is full sweet and has a dominate licorice flavor. Overall, a sweet and sticky desert style beer.

kramer (5178) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2005
500 ml bottle, via rudolf. Dark brown, almost black pour with a small but firm light brown head that faded to a thin ring within a minute. Roasted malt nose with ample alcohol and some licorice, soy, burnt wood, and vanilla. Very roasty and dry burnt malt flavor, some alcohol in the finish with bitter coffee, soy, and charred oak. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, but with very fine bubbles preventing an overly fizzy texture. This beer perplexes me, not really sure if I kinda like it or really like it. My opinion fluctuated many times as I made my way thru the bottle. By the end I think it’s a well made beer that I didn’t really enjoy drinking that much. Perhaps just bad timing, I’d certainly be willing to try it again.
