1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a clear, yellowish brown, but looks deceivingly dark, almost black, in the glass. Fairly frothy offwhite head that disappears quickly with minimal lacing. The aroma is reminiscent of pale lagers, and is dominated by a stale metallica note. Typical aromas found in a porter, like liqourice or cocoa are not noticeable at all. The taste is generally weak, and the palate is thin and averagely fizzy. This stuff tastes like a pale lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aug ’14. A 0.33 l bottle from Coop store, Upplands Väsby. Just like the regular Carnegie porter, it poured very dark brown body with small light brown head. Bread and roasted malt aroma, mainly coffee. Flavor was mostly sweet and a bit bitter but hops were not so fine as in regular one. Watery and thin in body, while not being smooth at all on palate! Finish was moderate, brown sugar, sweet, rather simple. Not bad, had its moments, but incomparable with regular version. No matter on alcohol content, this should have been better.

Svart med rødskjær med lavt lys brunt skum. Lys sjokolade, malt og noe brunt sukker. Søt med noe bitterhet, karsmell og brent karamell, lite kullsyre. Gode lukte og smaker men alt for lit av dem.
