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 .

Very hoppy baltic porter, love the bitterness, but I think a different choice of hop variety could make for more pleasant drinking.

evilempire (149) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2008
UPDATED: APR 9, 2008 scored draught at 4am at Stalowa Wola station, bottled in Krakow (among others). who’d have thought the brewery responsible for Zywiec Jasne could also come up with this? Like Croatian Tomislav, but more so. Deep ruby, almost black. Delicious fruity, winey flavour, but with some hop. a dark, long lasting head (on draught at least).

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2008
Pours a pitch black with a thin tan head with pour retention and nice lacing. Aroma of fig & alcohol, slightly metallic tinge. Tastes of carob bean, creamy and lightly roasty. Pepper alcohol and light hops in the aftertaste. Very creamy body, good carbonation. Not terribly complex, but very drinkable, and well-crafted.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours a nice dark brown with minimal tan head and some lacing. Aroma of rosted nuts and coffee, with some sweet caramel and hops. Big flavor, more roastiness and sweeter than expected. Alcohol is only slightly noticeable. Very drinkable and good!

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Bottle labeled "best by 11-10-2007", consumed 02/15/08. Pours an intensely dark brown. Low carbonation. Tiny head forms and dissipates fast. Aroma is toasted caramel malt and a little dish soap. Mouthfeel is smooth (dare I call it silky?) and a little tingly on the tongue. Flavor is full and rich; a big, toasted, slightly sweet caramel that quickly segues into salty bitterness. Well-hidden alcohol can still be tasted. The tiniest hint of sourness as well, which is not at all a flaw. Very clean finish with only some sweet fruit lingering behind (cherries?). This is a great Baltic porter with the odd aroma and uninspiring appearance the only downsides.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2008
Dark reddish brown beer with dense beige head. Nose of some red fruit, dishwater and roasted malts. Slightly sweet taste of some dark fruits, caramel, later the roasted bitterness kicks in. Very low carbonation, soft, oily palate. A bit thin. Alcohol is well hidden. Nice beer, but the strange nose takes away from the experience.

Goodgrief (2000) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Sept. 2006 - At first pour, there was a horrid metallic aroma and flavor offtaste, but as it warmed, it faded. Go figure. Anyway, dark brown pour, rich sweet fruity flavor with just a touch of roast and coffee (not enough, imo). Creamy mouthfeel. Just a bit overly sweet and not enough "porterish" flavors, but good beer nonetheless.

[Tasting @ yespr – Courtesy of yespr] Hazy black with tiny beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, liquerice and coffee. Sweet flavor with roasted malt and liqeurice. Slight burned rubber notes – unwanted I presume….

33 cL bottle, thanks to Justyna for bringing me this. Pours dark brown with a little tan head. Dark roasted and mild chocolate aroma. Flavour is smooth chocolate and with a roasted malt note. Ends with a solid bitterness, slight burning note and a smooth chocolate note on top. Very drinkable baltic porter

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
Bottle.[Tasting session @ yespr, thanks for a great evening Jesper] Average beige creamy head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Dark mahogany colour. Aroma of chocolate, dried fruit, light toasted malt. Over the palate comes burned malt, light coffee. Medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry and thick texture. Moderated sweet with good counter bitter flavour. Bitter burned and lingering malty finish.
