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 .

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle from my SS Summer 07.
Pour dark brown with some ruby highlights. A nice light brown head on top with a bit of lace.
Munich malts are apparent in the nose. Some chocolate, raisins, and a whiff of alcohol. Some noble hop character.
Very chocolatey, raisin, smoke, and really bitter, with clean lager like character. A bit oxidized
Medium body with plenty of carbonation, and a dry finish.
Solid, but not a fave of the style.

zywiecporter (10) - Flintstone, Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2007
This beer is the class of the Baltic Porter world. In a word - excellence. A delicious black beauty, Zywiec Porter delivers a rich, complex taste that blends hints of chocolate, coffee, raspberries, licorice, and a wickedly bitter aftertaste that pits man v. beer. Beer geeks, rise up, and heed this beer’s call! An endless love affair awaits with this powerful black stallion.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Pours a basically opaque black with a tan head. Nose is distinct with chocolate. I like! Flavor is just as good. Mature and robust with a smooth and not too harsh profile. Chocolate and mature malt tomes. Feel is thick with carbonation and smooth with ingredients. Extremely drinkable. After sampling several porters from the region over the past few weeks, this is by far one of the top ones...if not THE top one. Very worth trying,

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - SEP 16, 2007
Pours a near black with tan, diminishing head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong estery fruits including blueberry and banana; hops come on strong on the palate: grassy and intensely bitter, finishing with a nice pop. Alcohol is present, particularly in the finish. Interesting take on the style, perhaps a little unbalanced, but certainly admirable.

ecbeerguy (86) - East Chicago, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2007
From a bottle, with a pull date several months in the future. A nice head formed from the pour, although it dissipated qickly. The aroma has caramel, raisins, coffee, and chocolate. A very smooth beer, with a hint of alcohol that’s also present in the aroma.

ChetLemmons (87) - orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2007
very dark, nice brown head. nice chocolatey/amaretto smell, with a hint of soy sauce. goes in smooth but kinda hits a funny spot at the top of the throat before it goes down, but then goes down smooth. roasted coffee bean and chocolate in taste, which compliment each other very well, with a somewhat metaliic-y after taste, which sours the tasting enjoyment of this experience. truth be told, the aftertaste ruined this beer for me.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Pours light brown from the bottle and appear very dark brown in the glass. Light aromatics. Brown malt, caramel, light chocolate and espresso, banana peel arrive on the front palate, with a lovely backround of ripe sugar glazed fruits. Flavor is truly astoudingly complex, clearly a great recipe, yet I can’t say I’d want to drink it again. The beer tastes too dead.

malrubius (2452) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 8, 2007
500 ml bottle in pint glass. Black with flat light brown head. Roasted coffee aroma with slight lager graininess. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavors with lager smoothness and sweetness and bitter aftertaste. Pretty good tasting. Medium full bodied, medium carbo. Well-disguised alchohol. I prefer the fruitiness and rawness of an imperial stout.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Poured a clear deep ruby color with a small tan head. The aroma was malty and chocolatey with mild notes of roast and fruit. Not too sweet. The flavor was a mix of fruitt roasted malt and chocolate. Some mild alcohol taste and nice warmth. Medium bodied.
