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 .

imdownthepub (12696) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
Keg (yes keg), 500ml, at U Kakpra, Krakow. Dark brown to black with tan head. Big heavy beer, lots of fruit initially, then into a tarry, alohol, liquorice experience. There is always an underlying sweetness, I suppose this comes with the territory. Quite nasal in the close. Decent beer.

Nice moka head which collapses but maintains, leaving a lace behind. Nose of licorice and chocolate. Locrice and moka coffee in the mouth, with some residual sugar, rich mouthfeel with malt bitterness at the end. Wish they still had it (or the Okocim) at the LCBO. Thanks to CapFlu!

bierkoning (11953) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2005
Very dark colored. Roasted malt aroma with coffee, peardrups and raisin. Full bodied. Malty flavor, in fact with loads of roasted malt. Raisin. Coffee bitterness. Warming alcohol that bangs your head after a 15 hours working day. Whoahhh, abundant with flavors. Great beer. My thanks go out to Dortmunderfor this bottle.

thewolf (11881) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2007
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.
