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 .

Deep and opaque, but no head as depicted. Big aroma of charred malt, raisin, bitter chocolate, slightly medicinal and salty ie soy sauce. Lovely, well-rounded malts. A nice balance, and the consistency is near perfect. The slight, pleasant alcohol burn down to the stomach makes for a nice, sipping porter.

My first Polish beer, which is only personally significant b/c my ancestry is Polish. A nice porter, very heavy dark appearance but an unexpectedly lighter flavor. Appetizing roasty aroma. Taste is sweet and sour with a mild coffee aftertaste. I am not usually a big fan of porters but as this one features a mild intensity of flavors I thoroughly enjoy Zywiec. No off flavors and not overbearing. Despite being 9.5% no noticeable alcohol in taste. Surprisingly drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pours black with a compact mocha head. Ultra fine champagne like carbonation. Rich roasted malts boast aromas of coffee and a hint of chocolate. The palate is silky with flavours of juicy roasted malts, espresso, rich dark cocoa, it finishes a touch dry with a lovely bitterness..

Bottle, 33cl. Black color, creamy tan head, long lasting. Aroma of caramel, bread, coffee, roasted malt, little alcohol. Medium bitter taste with a light acidic finish, dark chocolate, full body, creamy, moderate coffee-like bitter & alcoholic finish. Very nice, complex beer I strongly recommend.

Dark brown with a light tan head that lasted. Rich and sweet with a slightly soapy mouth feel. A clean finish beckons another swallow. YUM!

Dark brown in color with a ruby hue. Coffee, bitter chocolate, toffee, deep roasted malt and some alcohol notes in the nose. Tastes initially sweet then bitter on the back of the palate. Alcohol is apparent only by it’s warming effect. This is one strong porter.

The 500 ml bottle fills a glass with a beautiful dense dark brown beer with a generous rocky tan head that left good lacing. The aroma is first-rate and faithful to the style: chocolate, roasted malt and a healthy dose of aroma hops. There’s some alcohol peeking through as the beer warms to room temperature, too, owing to the high 9.5% ABV. Palate entry is robust, and full-bodied, with a notable sweetness upfront, the hinted chocolate and malt flavors, with a trace of dried dark fruits. The finish balances the sweetness, and is long and dry with an appropriate hop and alcohol balance. A very good beer. Dobre!
