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 .

Not as good as Okocim, but still nice. If you want a strong dark beer at a reasonable price, this is a good choice. Sort of one-dimensional though. Okocim is more complex, and comes in a much larger bottle for the same price.

Nearly black with a frothy tan head. Chocolate, coffee, malt, soy sauce in the nose. Robust mouthfeel. Flavor is good but the hints of soy sauce saltiness detract from an otherwise good beer.

Tomasso (5) - Krakow, POLAND - MAY 23, 2006 does not count
Aroma of roasted malty, coffee and light alcohol. Black colour and light brown, small size, rapidly almost fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Heavily roasted malty (almost burned), moderately bitter, licorice, coffee and fruity flavour. Good quality Baltic porter

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2006
(0.33L Bottle) Pours black with no head. Looks very similar to Coke. Aroma of alcohol and a bit of chocolate. Taste is of roasted, bitter coffee with a slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Rich and complex, and surprisingly not overly alcoholic tasting.

Bottle from Sean, Thanks. Pours out a dark brown color without much of a head. Smell is sweet, rich, slight alcohol, malts, and caramel. Taste is overly sweet, thus sealing my opinion that I am not a real big fan of baltic porters. I think this was actually too warm (is there such a thing with a dark beer??!?). To its credit, the 9.5% was never detected, nor could I taste it. Its almost like drinking an overly sweet imperial stout. Not bad, dont think I would revisit it, but if I was given a free bottle, I wouldnt turn it down ,thats for certain.

Arayaga2 (1778) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Oily black with tan head, it has a nice floral aroma that blends perfectly with the sweet malty smell. Taste is roasty pumpernickel, and bitter that finishes with a back-of-throat sting. $2/500ml

convex (31) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 21, 2006
Bought a bottle in Poland last weekend on the way home. Pours really dark, would with a normal zywiec disappearing head. has a rather pungent roasted aroma with a tangy alcohol bite, almost like an caffe corretto. it’s quite thick with a a very creamy texture, a bit of bitterness at the end. All in all a good beer, especially considering that it clocks in at 9.5%. Just not really my style. 330ml will set you back about 2pln

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2007
Medium coarseish brown head. Deep dark red body, barely translucent, with carbonation. Syrupy roasty licorice and paper aroma. Deep sharpish metallic papery licorice taste, kind of syrupy. Clean mouthfeel, some alcohol heat. Chocolatey notes. Dry, papery licorice aftertaste. Quite nice. A bit mild, even when warm, but good. Had it later on draft, which was better. (0.33l bottle from a grocery store in Krakow.)

malrubius (1683) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 8, 2007
500 ml bottle in pint glass. Black with flat light brown head. Roasted coffee aroma with slight lager graininess. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavors with lager smoothness and sweetness and bitter aftertaste. Pretty good tasting. Medium full bodied, medium carbo. Well-disguised alchohol. I prefer the fruitiness and rawness of an imperial stout.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate, alcohol, more chocolate, toffee and lots of sweet qualities that are difficult to pin down. Tastes of chocolate with lots of licorice and some dark fruit (figs, some dates, rasiins mostly). As the beer warms, touches of tea creep in. Finishes of molasses.
