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 .

Brown pour, black in the glass. Tan head settles to an 1/8th inch ring of foam that leaves thick lacing. The aroma is roast coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and some metallic lager yeast. The flavor is sweet at first, with some chocolate and Munich malt, then adds some date-like flavors, dries out, and finishes with roast that lingers in the back of the throat. Light to medium bodied with only a faint hint of alcohol. Still don’t believe this is 9.5%.

Piwo czarne z brązowymi reflekami, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa i średniopęcherzykowa, beżowa, oblepiająca szkło. W aromacie czekolada, toffie. W smaku kawa, czekolada gorzka. Wytrawne, ale nie wodniste. Alkohol pali w podniebienie, co też wzmaga odczucie goryczki.

Ładnie pachnie, kawowo-czekoladowo. Jednak gorzej w smaku, gdyż alkohol wybijał się tak na pierwszy plan, że siermiężnie zabijał wszystkie inne smaki wokół. A była i kawa, i czekoladki likierowe, może jakaś nalewka wiśniowa, jednak przysłowiowe procenty zabiły wszystko, co w tym piwie. Na plus jego wygląd, gdyż pianę ma ładną, choć był ciut za jasny jak na portera, miał zbyt duże prześwity.

Barwa szlachetna, ciemna, smak przyzwoity, nie jest to jednak mój styl. No i na etykiecie nie ma wzmianki że jest to porter bałtycki.

Bottle. Dark brown with slight reddish tint, large spongy beige head, coffee aroma, high carbonation, caramel-coffee taste, long burnt finish. Not bad.

Zywiec Porter has a fairly thick, foamy, beige head, a dark brown appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted, but not burnt, malt and coffee, and the flavor is of the same, with sweetness, chocolate, chicory, coffee, and a trace of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and velvety, and Zywiec Porter finishes semi-dry and very drinkable for such a high-alcohol beer. RJT

Kita (1429) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of Marcin, shared with colleagues. Cloudy dark brown color with small creamy light brown head and fair lacing. Aroma of mild roasted malt, caramel and alcohol. Taste starts by light sweet caramel and roasted malt, follows by dark fruits acidity, well hidden alcohol with warming mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, sticky texture and average carbonation in palate. Incredibly drinkable for such a high ABV...

Good looking beer, rich, smooth palate. Alcohol is completely hidden behind the malty, treacle, toffee flavours. Good bitter-sweet balance. Dangerously drinkable at 9.5 %
