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 (11197) - 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.

bierkoning (10915) - 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.

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!

madsberg (10608) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2004
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.

BeerandBlues2 (10607) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with ruby/mahogany highlights and a large, creamy tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malts (chocolate, coffee, roast) and dark fruits (figs, prunes, dates, raisins) with notes of earthy and minty hops. Flavor is dark roasted malt with medium hop bitterness, a drying finish, and dark fruit flavors in abundance. There is a light creaminess from the malt as well. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

[Tasting @ yespr – Courtesy of yespr] Hazy black with tiny beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, liquerice and coffee. Sweet flavor with roasted malt and liqeurice. Slight burned rubber notes – unwanted I presume….
