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 .

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2001
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 500ml bottle. Roasty, faintly chocolatey malt aroma, some light coffee, ash and vegetal hop. Brown-black color with a lasting, fine, tan head. Flavor is full of dark malt sweetness and fruit, with notes of cocoa, licorice, prune, roasty coffee, burnt sugars and faint cream. Light-moderate bitterness towards the finish, a slight alcholic presence is felt here, as well. Mouthfeel is smoothly effervescent and coating, body is full. This is the first of this beer Ive had in several years, and while it is tasty enough, its not the stunning creation that I recall.

Black, w/ roasted, dry notes in the nose, this beer has slightly oily feel on the tongue. It's very lightly carbonated & doesn't have much head. It's an interesting brew.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Dark brown color with a small tan head. Port wine aroma, roasted malts. Taste is port like, sweet. Alcohol is not noticable. I have heard they no longer make this beer which would be a shame.

shadey (2055) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2006
The pour is beautiful. Black with half inch of pretty khaki foam. Lice lacing that coats the walls of the glass completely. Aroma is very mild roast with chocolate. No alcohol presence at all. Pretty mild and a little dissapointing. Its well made and well done, but Im just not excited.

Bottle shared with tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. Deep brown colour with a wispy tan head. Aroma has a strange off note, sort of stale smelling, but has a nice sweet malty character. Body is a bit thin, but OK. Flavour has lots of chocolate and malt, a bit of fruit and nut, and a slightly stale finish. I suspect this was an old bottle, but it was still a decent brew.

thorine (37) - Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Tasted 8/2/10. .5L bottle. Aroma: sweet, very malty, some caramel. Appearance: light brown, ample and sudsy head. Beer itself deep brown in color. Taste: Sweet and malty, certainly, with roasted malt and bitterness at the end. Chocolate and coffee presence. A little too much ETOH comes through. Palate: Not very cloying. Reasonably clean, actually. Full taste. Warming and very fulling (much like an Aventinus). Overall: Certainly a filling beer. I would have enjoyed it more at perhaps 1-1.5% less abv, or perhaps better masked abv.

Scubatrip (609) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2010
From the bottle, pours black with a thick tan foamy head. Smells like a standard porter with chocolate and a little alcohol. Taste is the same, a little earthy bitterness to finish, but othersie thick and smooth, like a porter should be.

Rune (10684) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
Thanks to faroeviking for a 330ml bottle of this three years old porter. Small dimples to a light brownish hue. Dark as the polar night (at this time of the year). Malty aroma, slightly roasted. Roasted semi-sweet malts in flavour with hints of dark chocolate fruits. Well bodied. Non-offensive alcohol heating. Very fine Baltic Porter (hotel room, Copenhagen 07.11.2010).

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