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 .

A: The beer pours a very dark brown color with some reddish/amber notes to it and a finger of off-white head. S: Initial aromas are booze and metal, one might say pennies. A lot of dark roasted malts and a touch of dark, bitter chocolate. There are some dark fruit notes to the beer as it warms up, particularly prunes and raisins. T: The flavor is fairly harsh. Lots of bitterness and lots of roasted malts. A rather intense metallic flavor to the beer with a hint of cocoa powder and dark chocolate. Not much in the way of the dark fruits that were present on the nose. Alcohol comes through quite strongly as well. M: Medium in both body and carbonation. O: Too boozy and harsh to be all that enjoyable. The metal wasn’t doing much for me either.

Cola appearance. Sweet raisiny aroma, malty complex. Malty sweet flavor that turns to raisin on swallow. Bitterness throughout, but as complement. Very good beer.

bhensonb (11796) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 28, 2007
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.

Koelschtrinker (11518) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Süß röstmalziger Geruch. Übermäßig ist das Bier von Anfang an, eigentlich lecker, würde sich nicht permanent eine alkoholische Note einmischen. Auch die süße Note, die ab und an erscheint, gefällt weniger. Trotzdem ein recht leckeres Bier, das mich durch die ausgeprägte Malzigkeit bis in den späten Nachgeschmack überzeugt. Dabei ist die im Nachgeschmack auftretende Würze ebenfalls nicht zu verachten. Test vom 3.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,13,13,12

Bottle. [thank you faroeviking]. Pours reddish black with a small, slightly lacing brown head. Aroma is sweet and malty, chocolate, some cinnamon. Generally quite low carbonation. Very full mouthfeel with slightly prickly bubbles. Flavour begins of sweet and malty. Then a heavy presence of alcohol along with roasted malts, dark chocolate and a touch of mocha-dark coffee. Flavour lingers a long time after swallowing, carried by the heavy (though not too powerful) alcohol presence.
