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 .

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.

Może to wina tego, że jednak to "Żywiec", a może faktycznie po prostu porter, którego można się napić bez większego sentymentu? Cóż, takie piwa też są potrzebne. :)))

gripweed57 (911) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours a translucent brown color with a large thick creamy tan head. Rich roasted malt aroma has notes of chocolate, raisins and licorice. Rich bittersweet cocoa malty flavor upfront. More licorice and raisins. Creamy mouthfeel enhances the taste. Finish has notes of strong coffee, prunes and resiny hops. A great Baltic Porter. Surprising good and a great value.

Hopmaestro (405) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2015
Sometimes you get caught by surprise. I thought this would be a macro porter with some color black in it. But no... Aroma coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and some alcohol. Taste is awesome - roasted malts, raisins, tiny smoke notes and a big chunk of chocolate bitterness in the aftertaste. Awesome porter.

Estebanik (102) - Lublin, POLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Pite trzy lata po terminie: Bardzo pełne i gęste, z wyraźnymi nutkami utlenienia pokroju wiśni czy śliwki. Alkoholu praktycznie już nie czuć, miło tylko rozgrzewa przełyk. Żeby nie było za fajnie, trafiła się akurat butelka z gwoździami, te są jednak marginalne. Bardzo przyjemne.

Dobry porter do spokojnego saczenia, Zywiec jak widac oprocz lagerow potrafi uwarzyc dobre piwo. Polecam dla tych ktorzy chca sprobowac porteru a nie maja jeszcze duzego doswiadczenia w tym stylu.

KW92 (276) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 28, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, po paru chwilach znika niemal zupełnie.
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Zapach ciemnych słodów. Nuty likierowe czekoladowo-kawowe. Nieprzyjemny rozpuszczalnikowy aromat w tle.
SMAK: Likierowe. Gorzka czekolada i trochę nut ciemnego pieczywa. Wyraźnie "nieułożony" alkohol. Żelazisty posmak.
OGÓLNIE: Mało wyraziste. Jak na Porter Bałtycki bardzo ubogi "bukiet".

From bottle. Black with medium beige head. Dark chocolate, malts, roasty, bread, nuts. Notes of alcohol and iron. Good balance of sweetness and bitterness.

Manslow (336) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Butelka 0,5l Kolor ciemnobrązowy, piana średnia, nagazowanie idealne. Aromaty słodowe, czekoladowe i owocowe. Smak słodko gorzki, karmelowy palony. Alkohol niewyczuwalny pod karmelowym dominującym smakiem. Wyśmienite piwo, jeden z najlepszych porterów bałtyckich.
