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 .

I believe this is the best porter I’ve had. Looks awesome coming out of the gate, with a nice creamy head. Aroma had hints of caramel. Taste of sweet roasted malts with caramel. Very drinkeable on a cold winter day. Also a beer that makes you yearn for a small pub atmosphere. Noticeable carbonation.

A very nice porter at a reasonable price. Aroma is very hoppy with a strong burnt odor. Appearance is dark brown with a thick frothy head. Mouthfeel and flavor are very smooth and burnt. Overall an excellent brew

my dad gifted a bottle of this to me a few months ago before i began rating and i wanted to just try it again because i remember it being really exceptional... bottle- pours slick black with a nice tan head leaving behind wonderful lacing... a nutty aroma, some fruits roasted malts, a hint of alcohol, and chocolate. tastes quite good, very rich, chocolate malts, mixed with an oaky wood flavor, and alcohol warming occurs more delayed than usual in the throat. has a salty character to it, and great hop bitterness hint of nuts as well. a classic porter.

Via Chuck. The beer pours to a dark cola body with a tan head. The aroma is prunes and plums with some roasty black malt. The flavor is roasty black malt, interesting dark fruit components. Nice "spicy" palate. Lively carbonation and a body that has a good texture.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2008 Bottle shared by Chuck. Black body under a tan head. Tangy, malty aroma - anise and char over marshmallow fluff sweetness. Great flavor - big thick chocolaty, caramel flavor with bitter hops and roast on top. A great B. Porter that doesn’t seem like they’ve cheaped out on the malts.
July ’08 - had a bottle in Poland and it was mighty tasty, still a high-quality assertive beer.

Dark black pour w/ a nice tan thick head w/ some good lacing. Nice roasted malt and chocolate aroma lots of sweet dark chocolates a hint of plum and touches of alcohol. Palate is nice thick well coated and lightly creamy. Flavor is very nice... very mellow almost riding the line of sweet stout and porter.. a ton of roasty malts, lots of dark chocolates and sweet lactose notes some real light plum. Very nice.. I am enjoying this guy.. and am I the only one who thinks baltic porters tend to be like imperial porters.. they always seem to be bigger and better :)

Pours a pitch black with a very thick tan head. Very creamy looking. Semi- modest odors in this one. Dark malts, chocolate, and slight smoke are detected in the nose. Pretty sweet for a porter. Dark fruit is present, which I was not expecting. More up front, but turns into chocolate and roasted malts towards the finish and in the aftertaste. I like the complexity in this beer. Its different, than alot of porters Ive had.

Very dark brown with dark dark froth. Aroma is mostly malt. Strong alcohol, dark fruit, and malt flavor. Bittersweet. Full-bodied but not too syrupy. more dry like a stout. A bit flat. Very nice lingering bitter finish.

Aroma of dark malt and a little dark fruit. Dark brown color transmits some ruby notes, and the tan head is vigorous and lasting. Starts with a dark fruit quickly followed by carbonation and then very strong toasted malt. The malt tends to compete with the hop. Interesting stuff.
