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 .

Bottled at restaurant, Warsaw. Best Polish beer I´ve had! A porter with a dry palate, chocolate and a bit of coffee aroma, and well hidden alcohol. Hard to believe it has 9,5% ABV. Nice dark beige head. A perfect companion with sturdy dishes as well as seafood from Poland.

Bottle, 33cl. Gloomy color, exposing a frothy head in a glass. Coffee notes triggering some bitterness with some sour, roasted malts-induced build-up; traces of lead metal. Not my favourite, cost-effective though.

Definitely the best beer from Zywiec Group. It’s actually quite good porter, what is totally aberrant in Poland that huge brewery like Zywiec can make so good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Butelka 500ml. Kolor ciemny brunatny, z niską pianą. Nisko wysycony. Zapach suszonych śliwek, rodzynek, gorzkiej czekolady, lekko palony. W smaku bardzo gorzka czekolada, alkohol, palone słody. Finisz z solidną czekoladową goryczką. Dobre jak na koncerniaka.

Flesje in een hotel in Krakau. Ziet eruit als een porter ;-). Ruikt niet heel erg sterk, mout , koffie, zoet. In de smaak een mooie balans tussen zoet en bitter. Smaakt en ruikt ook wat romig. Goed bier maar misschien dat het zoete op den duur, tijdens het tweede flesje, wat tegen gaat staan.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Classic Baltic porter from Poland, tasted 12-odd years ago but revisiting now in comparison with Okocim Porter Mocno Dojrzale. Darker than the Okocim, near black, with identically the same, moussy, light beige, lacing head. Aroma is a tad less strong, less complex and less sweet than Okocim, laying more emphasis on the roasted bitterness; I get impressions of diluted black coffee and coffee grounds, caramel candy, lots of iron (more so than in Okocim), minerals, warm apple cake, weeds, burnt wood, sweet red wine, liquorice, walnuts, faint hint of cooked spinach (probably the pasteurization effect, but weak enough not to become obnoxious), raisins, toffee, bourbon. Taste is a bit more neutral and notably more dry than the Okocim, too: a lot less candi syrup sweetness though it is still there somewhere in the background, dryishly caramelly and very nutty with a roasted touch, lean and smooth mouthfeel with soft carbonation, basic sourish accent, iron getting through in an almost obnoxious way, finishing dryish and bitterish, with lingering caramelly malt sweetness playing with an earthy, mild roasted bitter touch, ’dull’ leafy hops, lingering metal and a warming, not disturbing alcohol effect, soft and a bit bourbon-like. Less complex and a lot less sweet than the Okocim with a more in-your-face bitterness; way too iron-like, not to say metallic, this is clearly the lesser of the two - though I would still recommend this to anyone interested in getting to know this particular northern and eastern European style. Again, big thanks to Karina and Sabine for giving me the opportunity to compare these two classic Baltic porters!

"pours dark brown with a nice fluffy head and everlasting lacing on the glass. aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruit. feel is creamy and nice, if a touch thin only in the finish. flavor is similar to aroma. a touch sweet at the end, but pretty tasty."
