charlotte (4571) - rødovre, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2007
Dark brown colour with small beige head light tosted and sweet taste of licorice with mild finish.And a o.k. Porter by only 3.5 % alc.I guess.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2007
Bought this bottle to cook and took a few sips. It is cola coloured and smells rather sugary, rooty with candied pear and chocolate milk notes. Obviously very thin in mouth and with rather fading carbonation that leaves a rather empty body. generic plum-like fruitiness completes the portrait. Fair.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 27, 2007
(on bottle) Has a nice look and even sniffs like a porter. Once you drink it, it all ends tho´. Tastes like liqouriced water with carbonation. No complexity at all.

taunusmies (335) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 Pours mahogany colour. Quite light body for being a porter. Sweet and malty with some coffee and chocolate notes. Too watery. An easy drinkin’ porter.

ekstedt (5840) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a hint of red. Lacks the depth of Carnegie Stark Porter, leaving only an overly sweet and thin brew.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle bought in Malmö. Dark brown with a nice off-white ehad. Aroma of roasted malts, roasted coffe and sweetness. Flavour is smooth, sweet with good roasty malts, roasty coffe and a littlle liquorice. Bit thin but good.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2007
Bottle from CoOp in Umeå. I had a full-strength 2006 Carnegie Porter last night and was impressed at the way it had aged, having developed a very creamy, oatmeal texture and flavour. So when I saw a bottle of the 3.5% Carnegie sitting on the supermarket shelf, rather than ignore it as usual I took a couple home to see if it in any way resembled its big brother. In all honesty it doesn’t of course - lacking the muscle, the rich burnt malt flavours and the satisfying mouthfeel of the full-strength version. But to compare one with the other is not doing this 3.5% justice. Despite being ’watered’ down, it is still a reasonably deft beer, with suggestions of coffee, brown sugar and chocolate. And because it’s 3.5% (the maximum abv allowed in the retail sector in Sweden) you can knock back a couple of bottles and still remember where you left the car keys. Second only to Bishops Finger 3.5% as the best in its category in my opinion.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2007
Pours dark redish brown. Sweet, a bit metallic aroma with a light roasted tone. Notes of coffee powder, (brown) sugar and maybe some fruits and raisins. Sweetish, a bit metallic, light rosted flavour with some chocolate and sugar. Maybe a touch of vegetables. Pretty soft mouthfeel. Small body.
