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 .

Zywiec Porter ABV: 9.5% IBU: ? Calories: 400 estimated Volume: 16.9 oz Glass: coke glass Purchased at: Sherwood Liquors, Ewing, NJ Price per fl oz: $3 / 16.9 fl oz = $.17 per fl oz sensory first impression: Heavy alcoholic scent. Sherwood chills everything, which I’m not crazy about. Beautiful tan head with racing bubble effect. Nutty chocolaty scent rises up. 98% opaque - faintest red brown makes it through. head is foamy and luscious. Flavor is surprising, a bit metallic, very roasted, chocolate, and papery. Floral in second scent. Head hangs on. Nice bitter, long finish. This is a great stout. Filmy cloy is nice. Aroma/Olfactory: Malt flavor is: caramel, chocolate, coffee, nuts, and roasted. Hop flavor is: resinous, floral, and bitter. Yeast flavor is: sweet, earthy, dry and papery. Other flavors include: alcohol, medicine, soy sauce, smoke, oak. Visuals/Appearance: Color is: brownish red, almost entirely black Liquid is: thick and dark - almost no light comes through. Head and lace are: bumpy, tan, and long lasting. Lace hangs on. Taste/Flavor: Maltiness or Sweetness level is: medium to heavy Hoppiness or Bitterness level is: medium Sour level is: light Palate/Tactile: Body or Mouthfeel is: full Texture is: creamy, sticky, paper napkin, cotton Carbonation is: soft to flat Finish is: long and delicious Overall experience: This is wonderful, and reminds me of both Brooklyn and Rogue in the quality of stout. It is definitely not Guinness, which to me is a great thing. It’s not completely smooth, and not all about the visuals (though both drinkable and beautiful), but is hoppy, surprising, and has great subtlety and balance. Amongst my highest rated of the style. I did a tour of Poland at Sherwood Liquors, and came out with one winner -- this was it.

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.

rafael52 (395) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Kolor: ciemnobrunatny, klarowny.
Piana: obfite, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, dość trwała, powoli opada do cienkiej warstwy.
Zapach: średnio intensywny, ale bogaty i złożony, wyczuwalne aromaty ciemnego pieczywa, pumpernikla, kawy, czekolady, sporo ciemnych owoców, śliwek, alkohol również obecny, ale w znośny sposób, żelazo w szkle niewyczuwalne, jednak na skórze delikatnie wychodzi.
Smak: tak jak w aromacie obecne nuty ciemnego pieczywa, delikatne nuty kawowe i palone, wyczuwalne również śliwki, goryczka średnia w kierunku niskiej, trochę alkoholowa, żelazo raczej niewyczuwalne, może delikatnie przy pierwszym łyku.
Wysycenie: wysokie, zdecydowanie mogło by być niższe.

Pours a near black with tan, diminishing head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong estery fruits including blueberry and banana; hops come on strong on the palate: grassy and intensely bitter, finishing with a nice pop. Alcohol is present, particularly in the finish. Interesting take on the style, perhaps a little unbalanced, but certainly admirable.

Mjollnir (392) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours a deep red-black with a light brown head that settles to a ring. Aroma of molasses, roasted coffee, wood and alcohol. Medium sweetness, lightly roasted and slightly hoppy flavour. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation, a little sticky but with a drying finish.

Very nice! Incredible that The same brewery makes such a dull beer as the regular Zywiec jasne pelne (lager) and then does this. Plenty of coffee and cola. Mature and full body. Great porter and I don’t even like porter that much.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2009
bottle: pint glass: aarrggg.... not sure I like this style at all. I’ve been avoiding this beer in the back of the fridge for a while now... The nose is all malts, slightly roasted but mostly sugary and warm. The taste has some sweet notes upfront, giving way to strong bitters and high esters... finish is bitter yet metallic. The balance is there and the brew adheres to the style... good, just not my style.

Sweet milk chocolate aroma emerges from a puffy pour out of a half-liter bottle. The taste is quite punchy though not as sweet as the aroma suggests and definitely boozier than American porters. God bless Polish brewers!

this reminded me a lot of Lion stout. sweet and a little bit thin. the 16.9oz bomber was only $4 at a local polish restaurant, and i got to drink it around a bunch of 60-70 year old pollocks which was an added bonus.

Bottle in Wroclaw. Pretty good stuff. Quite a burnt flavour, chocolately, quite heavy. According to my shoddy handwriting, there is either an aftertaste of pear, or the aftertaste is poor.
