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 .

A very enjoyable porter. Moderate amber head, black brown color. Fruit, spice and roasted malt on the nose. The palate is a nice balance of sweetness (first) and roasted malt on the finish. The best thing about this beer is the mouth feel. Very rich and smooth.

Dark (duh), somewhat a tad transparent. Nice head for a porter beer. A bit too bitter for my tastes, but on the overall it’s pretty decent. Has many smokey notes and some coffee-like ones.

500ml bottle. Park Rapids, MN. Bottled June 2010. Pours dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. pretty nice. Taste is mostly sweet. Medium body with frothy texture. Overall, a little on the sweet side for my preference, but generally pretty nice. Aroma and flavor are pretty decent.

Aroma: Rich malt character that resembles caramel more than chocolate; maybe a little fudge, but overall quite simplistic. Doppelbock-like. Appearance: Opaque black pour with a foamy mocha head that settles into a bubbly skin. Flavor: Moderately sweet caramel dominant with fudge in the background; that waffle cone character that seems to always creep into these beers for me; dries out pretty well and has a remarkably bitter finish (for the style). Alcohol doesn’t play no games. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Glad to have finally tried this one, but I must admit to being a bit underwhelmed. Still, one you almost have to try if you’re into porter, especially Baltic Porters.

Seems to have that same issue that a lot of British dark ales, a little too much candied sugar notes. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: coffee, cocoa; Appearance: dark brown; Taste: intense bitterness, medium sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, thick texture, full body, soft carbonation Part of the bitterness coming from alcohol and not hops but it isnt a big fault. Terrific price to quality ratio.

Piana wysoka, ale bardzo szybko opada i znika zupe?nie. Mocny. Alkohol lekko wyczuwalny. Karmelowy aromat i smak.

Pours with quickly dissapearing brownish head. Dominating metallic (iron) aroma with roasted malt, coffee and chocolate notes. Tastes roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and watery metallic unfortunately, with nice bitter finish and warming alcohol. Good, but that iron...

Dobry porter. Ładna piana, drobnopęcherzykowa , niestety znika dość szybko Świetny aromat palonych słodów, nie taki słodki, ciężki jak w przypadku Łódzkiego Portera - bardziej ożywczy, chyba przez działanie oparów alkoholu. W smaku jest wszystko co powinno być, kawa czarna bez cukru,moze troche gorzkiej czekolady, goryczka średnia, przyjemna, dobrze komponująca się ze wspomnianymi smakami, później przechodzi w lekką kwaskowość kawową. Pozycja obowiązkowa na mapie Porterów Bałtyckich
