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 .

Pours very dark brown, almost black, though when put up to the light a red tint can be seen. Moderate tan head. Strong roasted aroma with some mild caramel. Roasted malt flavor, a little caramel, some hop bitterness. Nice porter.

Case (154) - GERMANY - NOV 2, 2013
Pours black with medium-sized brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, a bit of roastyness. Taste is lots of chocolate and caramel balanced by a persistent grassy bitterness that lasts from start to finish. Wonderful bitter aftertaste. Excellent porter!

Bottle fron a local shop in Krakow, enjoyed at home. Pours black with a medium dirty white head. Smells sweet with some hints of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, liqorice and alcohol. An ok beer.

Pours a super dark brown with a thick light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and burnt coffee. Taste initially is of chocolate with slight molasses which ends abruptly into a dry and bitter finish with metallic undertones. This takes what woul have been a much higher rated beer and significantly lowers my rating.

I am no expert but this is sooo close to stout. Round and flavourful and as black as could be. Plus it had that kick, man oh! I used to drink alot of porter, but this is not like any other I have had. Great beer.

This one is not as sludgy as Sinebrychoff Porter, but still impossibly thick. Strong, strong, strong. The 9.5% pulls more like 11 or 12. This would make a great marinade for steak.

Bottle (best before 8-9-06). Pours a very deep mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. The taste starts off with a little bit of hops then goes to a chocolate, roasted malt flavor. The falvor is pretty complex and well balanced. The 9.5% is hid very well, I would have put the alcohol around 6%.

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 a deep black with a nice brown head. Aroma has tons of roasted malts and chocolate. Bits of coffee in there. Flavor is just what you want in a porter... malt, chocolate and coffee all combined in a really pleasant way. Great body, too. Perfect for winter with big meals. The price is right, too. I get this every time I eat at Polonia in the East Village and it never fails to impress me.
