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 .

opaque, with moderate head. roasty/sweet aroma. sweet roast malt flavor with a touch of chocolate, a hint of licorice. roast flavor masks the high alcohol, until it warms up, giving indication of its strength. somewhat bitter finish. definitely more interesting than the zywiec pale lagers. great beer for the price.

If I ever needed a beer to serve as a meal, this might be the one I pick. Everything about this beer is big: big rich color, big head, big flavor, big alcohol, and big (next day) hangover. Roasted sweetness in the nose. Truly wonderful caramel, toffee, and butterscotch flavors intermingle with scorched malts and hop bittering. Alcohol is pretty well hidden considering the level. A world-class and wonderfully approachable beer.

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.

Very malty nose. passes the floodlight test (can’t see through it.) Huge Tannish brown head that goes slowly. Weird palate bitter at the tail. Malty right up front with coffee bitterness in the middle with some fruity notes that twist around.

A nice dark porter with a good roasted malt flavor. Some chocolate notes, some light alcohol taste. Not really that bitter and pretty easy drinking.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2008
Very dark reddish black beer with a nice aroma of plums, raisins, glue, slightly of cinnamon and grapes.
The flavour is sweet, slightly fresh & sourish. The aftertaste is of cocoa and malty-bitter.
The mouthfeel is nice, softly fluffy.

mwsf (360) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 7, 2002
Very slightly fruity, roasted, raisiny aroma. Dark brown-to-black with a full tan head. Flavor of roasted malt, some raisins, slightly sweet caramel, tons of malt. Medium bitterness. Fairly thick -- very full bodied. For 9.3% ABV, the alcohol is well hidden. Great blend of flavors. An excellent beer.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 Bottle, pours brown with moderate tan head. Cocoa and dark malt (light to no fruity esters)aroma. Flavors of dark malt (light fruity esters) and cocoa and coffee with noble hop bitter balance in medium body, slight astringent alcohol warmth in finish.

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!
