500ml bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color, revealing hints of ruby-red translucence when held up to a light. A two-finger mocha head is formed with a beautiful creaminess and very strong retention. As it slowly recedes, it leaves behind large sheets of lacing down the glass. S: Itís very forward in dark fruits, chocolate, and molasses. Distant notes of roast, coffee, and mild hops are hidden behind the sweet maltiness. My only real problem is how mild the aroma is - which is a shame, because itís good otherwise. T: Sweetness opens the flavor profile strongly, with strong caramel, dark fruit, and chocolate qualities. This will transition to a very roasty, mildly hoppy finish. Hints of earth and booze pop up on the back end, as well. While itís a bit boozy, it doesnít really hinder its drinkability, thanks to the mildness of flavor. It even has a bit of depth to it. The booze note gets stronger as it warms up, so drink cold. M: A bit on the thin side, with a typical crisp lager bite on the finish and strong carbonation. Itís almost as if this is designed for drinkability over richness; in regards to the former, itís pretty successful. O: This is a very dangerous brew. Itís inexpensive and drinkable, with only mild hints to suggest its actual strength. While not fantastic, itís a great way to get drunk on the cheap(ish) - I know Iíd much rather drink this over some crappy Euro malt liquor.

Posłodzona kawa, czekolada, wiśnia, lekka paloność. Dość pełne, nawet gładkie. Alkohol wyłazi w stopniu umiarkowanym. Żelazo obecne.

Czarne z delikatnymi refleksami. Piana tworzy się wysoka i szybko opada. W aromacie słodka czekolada, toffi i delikatna paloność. Po ogrzaniu spory alkohol. W smaku jest mało słodyczy i goryczki oraz lekka kwaskowość. Jest czekolada, karmel i paloność. Piwo jest wytrawne, choć na początku sprawia wrażenie gęstego. Nie najgorsze piwo, bez większych wad ale tez nie robiące wrażenia. Poprawne i tyle.

dnicolaescu (1685) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 8, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL. Pitch black with clear ruby highlights, beige head. A typical baltic aroma and flavour - dark malts, sweet chocolate, burnt sugar and hefty alcohol. Besides that, Zywiec has a weird hop profile - wild herbs with a bit of a medicinal edge. Quite good overall.

Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, beżowa piana, zostawia ładny lacing. Aromat czekoladowy, kawowy, są nuty ciemnych owocůw: śliwek i wiśni, ogůlnie bardzo przyjemny. W smaku bardziej wyczuwalna jest paloność, jest dość słodkie, są nuty czekoladowe, karmelowe i owocowe. Wysycenie raczej niskie, goryczka średnia, a alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty.

Szopeen (256) - ToruŮ, POLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Praktycznie czarne, z ładną pianą. W aromacie czekolada, rodzynki. W smaku dochodzi jeszcze lekka paloność. Odpowiednia goryczka, pijalne, alkohol niewyczuwalny.

ATP (242) - POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Czarne, z lekkimi brązowymi przebłyskami. W aromacie palone słody, karmel, lekka czekoladka, karmel i sporo alkoholu z dodatkiem gwoździ. W smaku jest bardzo podobnie. Alkohol jest dość nachalny, podobnie jak bardziej rzucające się żelazo. Jest też przypalony chleb, karmel, orzechy, czekoladka. Koncernowy porter. Szału nie ma, dupy nie urywa.
