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 .

Dark brown colour, molasses and berries aroma. It has a full body with some chocolate notes. The molasses comes back in the flavor.

This was pretty tasty, definetly unique. Maybe a dark sugar taste to it, stays pretty smooth despite the high ABV. Dark brown, i think I need to dip into the style a little deeper and come back to this.

This one is all about the malt, with a thick body and powerhouse flavor. I’m sure it’d be great with dessert, but I don’t know if you’ll have any room for food if you’re drinking one of these. And the low price just makes it seem all the sweeter.

A mild sweet raisin and dried fruit aroma with mild roast malt. Dark brown, almost black, thin white head. Sweet raisin very balanced with malt bitterness taste and some charcoal. Palate is filling and fizzy. Overall, wow! This was a very good Baltic porter!

Black with fluffy tan head. Nose is dark malts, chocolate, almost a rum note. Taste is strong, dark malts, chocolate, a bit fruity, a bit hot and rummy on the finish. Moderate mouthfeel, pretty lively carbonation. A good interesting porter.

Jak na piwo koncernowe to ten porter zas?uguje na wyró?nienie. Mocno palone z aromatami ?liwek i skórki od chleba. Czasami jednak alkohol jest za bardzo wyczuwalny.

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

While I still prefer a good English porter over a Baltic, this was fantastic. I really enjoyed the body and first impression. My problem with Baltic porters is that I typically get a strange finish. Not sweet or nutty, but like metal or booze. Anyway, as good as this was it still had that unsavory finish. Not my favorite style, but a good beer and one worth trying.
