UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 Chose this out of the cooler of BOTW because it was the last left so I thought it might be good. Right away you notice the full aroma of roasted sweet chocolate. Very dark pour. Flavor of sweet malt, chocolate and coffee was very enjoyable. Slight bite from the hops to balance it. Very good. 11/08/2011 I got one of these for a trade of a local sportscaster bobblehead doll. It was cellared for a year and a half but still good.

The nose is mostly malts, sweetness, licorice, and fruits like plums. A little of the alcohol comes through. The appearance is a gorgeous dark brown/black, with a nice two finger tan head. The flavor is malty sweet, chocolatey, fruity, and roasted coffee. Fairly thick mouthfeel. The finish has a decent bittering, from the roasted malts, and the hops. It is well balanced by a caramel sweetness, fading to roastyness. The Baltic Porter is a great style, and this is a very well crafted beer.

Embrouille (2844) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 23, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Bottled 50cl. Aged example. Vintage 2006 probably. Appearance: It pours a pitch black beer with a beautiful creamy deep beige head. Good head retention and nice lacework. Aroma: The nose is very strong, malty, sugary with notes of dark chocolate, walnuts, plums, dates, wood, salt, raisins, hops and figs accompanied by a slight hint of honey, lavender and gingerbread. Wonderful. Flavor and palate: Extremely full bodied. Malty. Very pleasant. Woody. Roasted malt, honey, aniseed, walnuts and raisins in the taste. Salty. Very faintly smoky. Complex. Decent bitterness. A nice bite showing up with the swallow. The finish is nicely bitter with a huge amount of cocoa powder appearing. Overall impression: Definitely a great beer. Flawless and deeply pleasant. Thanks a lot Bov for this beer!

After such an enjoyable experience with their lager, I was very pleased to be able to try the Porter finally. having read about it in at least a couple of my beer magazines and books with such rave reviews and being a fan of porters in general, taking her home was like Christmas come early.
My Zywiec Porter poured a thick, oily dark black with faint tinges of burnt earth peeking through along her sides and the bottom of the glass. A huge 2-3 finger head of soft puffy cappuccino tinged foam sits delicately on top of the liquid depths below. In no apparent rush, she slowly fades into a very nice layer of foam, marking her territory with scattered webs of brussels lace. Her nose greets me with notes of licorice, prunes, roasted malts and grains, sea salt, bitter-sweet chocolate, and a tinge of citric bite in the finish. Unable to wait any longer, I gladly delve into her liquid embrace and am greeted by a seductively smooth, creamy, buttery-soft body with an immediate palate of bitter dark chocolate. Not to be outdone, notes of fresh sticks of vanilla bean, and some milk chocolate for a flourish. A clean and dry finish, the citric notes I got in the back of the nose finish off my Zywiec Porter’s palate with a gentle drying effect, leaving me thirsting for more. As I near the finish, the smooth soft mouthfeel almost reminds me of chocolate covered bananas, and I could swear I taste a hint of said delight. Beautiful.
I enjoyed the Zywiec Lager, but hands down the Porter from Zywiec is their piece-de-resistance. This is easily one of the best if not the best porter I have had to date. Dont think. Grab a bottle or a 6pack of Zywiec Porter as soon as you can and enjoy.

Bottle courtesy of SoLan thanks Alan. Pours a clear dark brown with a two finger light tan head and very nice lacing. Nose is caramel malt, roasted nuts and alcohol. Taste is sweet malt, some dark fruit, light roasted coffee beans and mellow cocoa with some bitter hop in the finish. Medium, sticky mouth feel. Pretty good stuff.

Nice porter. Make sure you let the temp rise on this one. If its really cold you’ll find a bit of a metal tinge. Pours jet black. Nose of dark roast, vanilla. Flavors are of chocolate, light roasted malts. Very good porter a frequent purchase.
