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 .

This is a unique porter. Not because it has some unique or funky adjuncts but because the basic complements are strong. The roasted malts stand out in the aroma with some woody essence. The color is deep and dark with a small creamy head. This was matched by the creamy, almost milk-like palate. Carbonation is present but low and at a proper level. This is a very malty beer but not in a bad way. Strong and roasty, almost burnt. No semblance of hops to me. Great beer but somewhat heavy.

Bottle from bottle shop in Krakow. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of licorice, roasted malts, coffee, hints of alcohol and dark chocolate. Flavor is espresso, licorice, candi sugar with a bitter, slightly sour finish. Oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice baltic porter.

Pours black, almost opaque with ruby reflexes. Very nice light beige tall head, reducing to a long lasting layer, leaving some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste of coffee, licorice. Pretty sweet, but thankfully bitterness is high. Leaves a long bitter and a bit sour aftertaste. Medium carbonation, maybe a bit too high and pleasant mouthfeel, it’s not too sticky. Very good baltic porter.

Nice porter. Sweetish taste of burned malt, coffee and some licorice. Body is a bit thin though.

Bottle @ Whole Foods, Sarasota, FL. Smells really good. Looks great. Taste is a bit too much coffee for me. Left a smidgen of bitter aftertaste. Not the best Baltic Porter i’ve had, but it is only the 2nd one i’ve tried.

(Flasche) es hat eine schwarze undurchsichtige farbe mit einer weißen schaumkrone. Das aroma ist röstig mit etwas blaubeere und etwas brot. Der geschmack ist eher schlank, samtig, sonst wie das aroma. Im abgang kommt eine breite bittere raus mit einem leicht alkoholischen note

Couleur sombre-noire avec bonne mousse beige. Nez fort grillé, malté café et noisette, notes sucrées. Gout plus doux de malt grillé, café, notes chocolat, bien lègère en bouche malgrés l’acool et fort aromes. Pas mal!

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 09.05.2015, at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20140808) The beer poured clear and almost black. Its head was small and white. Aroma had chocolate, burnt malts, sweetness and grass. Palate was full bodied, warming and slightly oily with medium carbonation. Favours were burnt malts, chocolate, liquorice, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty, sweet and bitter. A tasty strong porter in which alcohol was quite well hidden.
