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) - Suburbia, 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.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 7, 2003
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.

Yeastmaster (44) - USA - SEP 1, 2003
Simple aroma belies the complexity of the flavor. Lots of roasted flavors early in swallow, with strongly alcoholic - almost vodka-like - finish. I found it tough to finish the glass before it got warm. Too strong for my preferences.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Bottle. Black with slight red tint, minimal tan head. Strong aroma, but difficult to pinpoint what exactly it smells like, unusual to say the least. Malt, soy sauce, cherries. Intense sweetness yet a bitter and dry finish, featuring alcohol quite prominantly, medium body. Midway through this beer I got the urge to knaw on some sharp cheddar, and did so. Really smooths the flavor out, brings out some chocolate, not a bad pairing. This beer falls into the unique category of being a beer that I recognize as being good, but don't care to ever drink again, and I think the overall rating will reflect that.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Pungent skunky aroma of licorice and smoke. Mixture of chocolate, plums, apricots is bullied by an old and musty skunked flavor. Not as offensive in the flavor as the aroma, but still not good. Otherwise this is a fine porter, very rich and smoky.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2004
Dark black/brown with an off tan head. Molasses and burnt toffee aroma. Black malt and molasses taste, very full, slight subdued alchoholic taste towards the end. Excellent beer!

shadey (2079) - 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.
