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 .

A dark brown pour. A nice light coffee flavor. A nice palate that is just smooth all the way across. Just a hint of alcohol that makes this an excellent holiday beer. I really like it.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear, reddish mahogany with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malt and some alcohol. Fairly solid body with lots of roasted malt. Malt bitter finish. 260806

Ibrew2or3 (7420) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Pours very dark with thin light brown head. Light aroma has some sweetness and roasted malt to it. This beer has a chewy mouthfeel. Sweet caramel and dark fruit flavors seem to be the main players. Then the burnt and chocolate malts emerge through the haze of sweetness. I also get a touch of cherries that are followed by the alcohol warmth. Tasty beer with 500mL at 9.5% ABV makes everything is just fine.

almost opaque black with ruby highlights. small brown head. roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, and hops in aroma. chalky texture. dry roast aftertaste. alcohol is slightly apparent. definitely a metallic presence which brings it down a little.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Pours an oily black, with a light brown film for head. Has an aroma of peppery chocolate malt. Flavor has a nice & full kilned malt character, roasty, chocolatey, creamy mouthfeel. Has a peppery alcohol touchand an earthy metallic character. Very satifying.

ross (2122) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Bottle from Sean, Thanks. Pours out a dark brown color without much of a head. Smell is sweet, rich, slight alcohol, malts, and caramel. Taste is overly sweet, thus sealing my opinion that I am not a real big fan of baltic porters. I think this was actually too warm (is there such a thing with a dark beer??!?). To its credit, the 9.5% was never detected, nor could I taste it. Its almost like drinking an overly sweet imperial stout. Not bad, dont think I would revisit it, but if I was given a free bottle, I wouldnt turn it down ,thats for certain.

bobaidan (527) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Pours black with a small head. Aroma is roasted malt with a touch of alcohol. Flavor is a bit sweet with roasty flavors present, but not as up front as you would expect. Nicely hopped to balance the sweetness. Alcohol is way in the back which is surprising. Tasty.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Pours just about black. Small off white head with in between light and medium carbonation. Aroma is hoppy, sweet chocolately malts. Taste is rich and dark malts, chocolate, with a mild and roasty finish. HInts of vanilla throughout the taste. Alcohol pushed to the back, and is pretty well hidden considering how high the abv is. well made.
