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 .

Oakes (15256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2001
Black, with a malty, vinuous nose. It is very dry, roasty and hoppy, with a big alcohol kick, some very burnt raisin flavours. The body is full and firm, and the finish is long and assertively dry.

MiP (15170) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2008
Bottle, 9.5%. Sweet and roasted aroma. Black colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet, has a hint of metal. Roasted liquorice notes and a burning/warming alcohol finish. Why so much alcohol?

Aroma of dark malt and a little dark fruit. Dark brown color transmits some ruby notes, and the tan head is vigorous and lasting. Starts with a dark fruit quickly followed by carbonation and then very strong toasted malt. The malt tends to compete with the hop. Interesting stuff.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 500ml bottle gift from Tranquility - Thanks, thanks, thanks!
Jet black, espresso head. Aroma heavy and sweet - a berry, perhaps raspberry or strawberry, but in no way light, hints of mocha coffee. Hugely roasted malty taste - burnt on the tongue, but also fairly sweet, a wicked treacly combination, with a tempting tang of both coffee and ginger. Lovely long burnt finish. For something which had the potential to be so brutal this is very sophisticated with no annoying sharp peaks at all. Definitely succulent. And the 9.5% is completely hidden - marvelous! This does compete with Koff porter - wow!
Rerate of 330ml bottle (6-5-7-3-13=3.4) also shared by Tranquility - thanks!
Sticky sweet in all aspects, but with enough burnt malt to make that forgivable. Alcohol breaks through, which detracts slightly from the taste, this would be fantastic, and could possibly compete with Koff Porter, if it was 7%
Rerate: 330ml bottle (?, Poland) BB 2010/05 Drunk 2014/04 (7:5:8:4:15=3.9)
Plumb raisin aroma, some tomato later, alas. Black, persistent tight tan head. Beautiful toffee taste, definitely aged, but succulently sweet and smooth. Very pleasant roast, no harshness because of the sweetness which mellows it lovely. Good one still!

Sampled from bottle at SIB, pours dark brown with a reddish tinge. Aroma of burnt coffee, brandy-like liqueur, and sweet plum. Flavour of brandy / sweet liqueur, light burnt coffee and roasted malt. Solid, medium-bodied porter.

Bottle. Poured a black color with a moderate light brown head that was lasting. Good roasted coffe and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Well balanced sweet roasted malt flavor with a small alcohol bite at the finish. Very good porter.
