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.

500ml bottle. Pours very dark brown with a large head. Aroma is oily, fruity coffee. Taste has subtle roast to start and an oily tar finish. Noticeable alcohol.

Piany mało, beżowa, szybko opada. W aromacie, czekolada, alkohol, suszone owoce, W smaku to samo co w aromacie tyle że dochodzi lekka paloność, alkohol nie przeszkadza, słodycz. Średnie wysycenie.

Des poles know how to Baltic porter. Nice coffee nose, bitter bakers chocolate. Slightly chalky tho, light body, but pretty decent.

W aromacie paloność i alkoholowy. W smaku alkohol, nadal delikatna paloność, ale pustawy. Jak na swoją cenę nie ma tragedii, ale bez rewelacji.

Bardzo bobre. Zawsze lubiłem portery i ten do nich należy. Dobrze mieć zapas w piwnicy, niech dojrzewa.

Barwa prawie czarna, piana niezbyt obfita, grubopęcherzykowa i szybko opada. W aromacie mamy bardzo intensywne palone słody i w sumie niewiele ponadto. Dość słodkie, na pierwszym planie palone słody, przyjemna kawa i czekolada, wyczuwalna również lekka wędzoność. Oleiste. Średnio wysycone, goryczka zbyt niska. Alkohol w warce do 09.05.2014 niewyczuwalny. Bardzo dobre piwo.

I was so expected to taste this beer. Black colour with a thin laze head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and some hops. Taste is dissapointing. Eternal Alcohol flavour that colapses any other feeling. Very bad balanced beer. Not a quality product. Surprised for the high range in ratebeer.

Very good beer for this price. It is very alcoholic, but still not hard to drink. I feel warm, good, and happy, after just one bottle. It is perfect drink, if you want to dring small amount. There is some deeper aromas, but they fade quickly. I really like the smell, it reminds me of old town for some reason.

beleggor (120) - Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Butelka 0,5l, ostatnia warka, ekstrakt 21. Wygląd: Ciemnobrunatne z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana lekko beżowa, niezbyt duża, szybko opada. Zapach: Alkohol. Wstrętny, nieułożony, ordynarny alkohol. Zaraz za tym trochę ciemnych owoców, rodzynek, likieru czekoladowego. Smak: trochę czekolady, trochę owoców, i męczący posmak alkoholowy. Wydaje się mało pełne w smaku. Ogólne wrażenia: Niestety, wychodzi na to, że piwo dalej będzie jechać na swojej renomie. Obniżenie ekstraktu przy jednoczesnym zachowaniu poziomu alkoholu nie wpłynęło pozytywnie na piwo. Wymaga bardzo długiego leżakowania, świeże należy sobie odpuścić.

Bottle from WB Stores, a West Bromwich. Black beer with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is lots of licorice, coffee, a hint of chocolate, roast malts and dark fruits. Medium bodied. A beer I have been looking for, for two years now. Very good.
