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 .

This is a great Baltic Porter. Lots of alcohol, but you canít necessarily taste it.

Aroma is coffee, roasted malt and a hint of caramel. Texture is thinner than I expected. Expresso flavour with the roasted malt and a little dark fruits, hop note in there at the end. The bitterness is quite long. Little sign of alcohol even though itís 9.5%

Pours deep brown with a finger of foamy tan head that sticks around for a few minutes. Rich roasty aromas of coffee, caramel malt and alcohol. Strong, slightly sweet flavor up front that abruptly transitions into a long burnt bitter aftertaste. As others have mentioned, this has some off-putting metallic flavors. Overall I enjoyed it, but itís rather intense. Take your time with this one.

Pours black with brown head. Nice malty aroma mixed with booze and prunes. Flavor is malty with roasted sugar, prune/raisin/dark fruit, hint of chocolate and light roast coffee. Hops minimal. I thought this was a great beer.

Perfect black pour with a thick, brown head. Mouthfeel stands out here; itís outstandingly creamy. Smells like coffee, chocolate, and toffee. In addition to chocolate, coffee, and toffee, we get a nice roastiness/bitterness. My only other experiences with Polish beers had been, well, terrible, so I was more than pleasantly surprised with this one.

Pours a dark brown with a nice 2 finger head that faded to a thin frothy head- a fairly aggressive pour on my part- Aroma of sweet coffee, caramel and light chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate, coco and vanilla accents. Body is on the light side and there was something in the sweetness of everything that seemed weird to me. Nice bitterness detected in the finish. Overall very nice, Iíd be delighted to have it again. If the price of their beers is indicative of the exchange rate, then Iíve gotta get to Poland.

Bottle. Pours a deep black with a frothy tan head. Aroma of grains, malt, and a bit of alcohol. Complex flavor, with plenty of malts, caramel, dark fruits, and alcohol. There was an off-putting metallic taste at first, but this went away as I drank it. The mouthfeel is distinctly overcarbonated. Solid, but a bit disappointing.

medium ruby color with a small tan head, light color by porter standards, malthy roasty flavor. Stale cardboard flavor with some roasted malt undertones. Thin moth feel for teh style. Perhaps a imporoperly stored bottle that may have been heat/cool cycled?

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
