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 .

Black appearance, brown head with medium retention andd with little lacing. Milk chocolate, cocoa, toffee, cappuccino on the nose. Bitter, roasted taste, with a long, coffee-like finish. Creamy texture, with average carbonation. Very nice, but not exactly easy to drink.

Piwo czarne z brązowymi reflekami, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa i średniopęcherzykowa, beżowa, oblepiająca szkło. W aromacie czekolada, toffie. W smaku kawa, czekolada gorzka. Wytrawne, ale nie wodniste. Alkohol pali w podniebienie, co też wzmaga odczucie goryczki.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Bottle at a small, old Polish theatre house in Buffalo. This place had a bunch of hard to find imported bottled Polish beers. Very dark brown almost opaque with a slight red hue. Small quick tan head. Nice roasted, smokey chocolate/dark fruity aroma. Roasted sweet malty flavor. Slighty bitter/alcohol aftertaste. Smooth, full-bodied porter. Worth the search and wait for this beer.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2008
This is a nice, smooth, but very flavourful Polish porter. It is black red with a fairly loarge, very long-lasting light brown head leaving very nice lace. The aroma is chocolatye, coffee, wine, prunes, and brown sugar. The taste is rich, with a lot of strong, complex flavours, but it is very smooth and blends very niely. It has a rich prune-chocolate-wine-burnt sugar character with lements of licorice, black pepper, and coffee. It’s smooth and a little oily but less than one might expect for this richness. It has a warmth to it, but the high alcohol is not notcieable at all except in the silky body and warm sweetness.

Svart i färgen med beige skum. Härligt rostad i doften med chokla, rågbröd och aningen kryddigt och grönt. Smakar mörkt rostad malt, söt chcokladton, bränt bröd, lite lakrits och humlebitterhet på slutet.

A body as dark as Dikembe Mutumbo and with a flavor as rich and complex as any Imperial Stout, this is by far the best Baltic Porter I have ever had. Words cannot justify the rum, raisin, chocolate covered roasted coffe bean and vanilla flavor. A true opal in a world full of synthetic gems. In other words, this is the REAL DEAL folks.

50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark brown with ample creamy tan head. Beautiful. Aroma is sweet malt, lightly toasty, slight coffee. Flavor is a bit like burnt toast. Finish is quite bitter with a bit of alcohol burn at the end. Full bodied, highly carbonated. Not a bad brew. This was my first Baltic porter and it was a bit different than I expected. About the only similarity to the English variety is the color.

Procent (499) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2014
W aromacie kawa, czekolada, karmel,chleb, średnia palność. Ciemne, nieprzejrzyste, piana umiarkowana. W smaku czekolada, nuty palone, świeże, kwaśne owoce, dość alkoholowe. Ogólnie zarówno aromatów jak i smaków jest sporo. W świeżym egzemplarzu trochę za dużo kwaśnych owoców i alkoholu. Za to goryczka średnia, która ładnie to balansuje. Zdecydowanie powinien jeszcze zyskać na leżakowaniu, ale i w wersji świeżej bardzo przyjemny.
