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 .

Bottle. Pitch black colour with a nice big creamy brownish head. Aroma of chocolate, well roasted malts, dark lagered fruits and caramel. Flavour has a good roastiness and chocolate in the beginning, then more round and caramellic with a dry bitter roasty finish. The alcohol is really not all that noticeable. Great porter!

Maria (10124) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2007
It’s a black porter with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and caramel, just like the flavour, where I also find coffee and a light bitterness, that lasts quite a while. The sweetness is a bit too much, but I have to be fair to this one and try it again some day, since I had it right after the barrel aged Smörpundet Porter. 2399

Bottled: This is probably one of the beers I’ve been looking for for the longest time. Burgundy coloured. LIght brown dense and impressing head. Long lasting. Aroma is malty, sweet and very light smoked. I’m not overly impressed by the aroma. Flavour on the other hand is quite impressive. Sweetness, liqourice, coffee and a nice hoppiness laying on a perfect maltbase. The alcahol is very well hidden. If I should critic this beer, I miss a little roastyness in the flaovur, but its still an subtle and complex beer. It all ends up in a remarkable bitterness and a very nice alcaholburnt. LIke others stated. This is a perfect winterbeer.

bierkoning (9999) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - 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

imdownthepub (9954) - 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.

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2003
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!
