COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carnegie Porter började bryggas 1836 och är ett av det äldsta svenskbryggda ölet – tillika Sveriges äldsta aktiva varumärke som med decennierna blivit känt över hela världen. 175-årsjubileet firas med en Jubileumsbrygd, signerad av Carlsberg Sveriges bryggmästare Daniel Eriksson och Brooklyn Breweries bryggmästare Garrett Oliver.
– Om jag hade varit pizzabagare hade jag beskrivit brygden som ”extra allt”. Till skillnad från vanlig Carnegie Porter, som är underjäst, har vi använt både över- och underjästkultur till jubileumsbrygden. Det har gjort den välhumlad, men faten har samtidigt minskat bitterheten och adderat smakerna av vanilj, kokosnöt och lite bourbon, säger Daniel Eriksson.
I april anlände amerikanska bourbonfat till Carlsberg Sveriges bryggeri i Falkenberg. Daniel Eriksson slet hårt tillsammans med Garrett och hans bryggare från Brooklyn för att få alla 130 träfat på plats och genomföra tappningen av brygden. Till sin hjälp hade de representanter från Porters Drinkers Association och medarbetare från Carlsberg.
Under lagringstiden spelades det musik för trätunnorna från en öppen spellista på Spotify där allmänheten var med och påverkade valet av musik. Det spelades allt från Cole Porter, Brooklyn-låtar och klassisk musik till reklamlåtar från västkustkompisarna Pripps Blå och Falcon.
– Under lagringstiden blev ölet smakrikare och starkare, från planerade 6,9 procent till en slutprodukt på 8,8 procent. Om det var ljudvågorna som påverkade låter jag vara osagt, men portern utvecklades fantastiskt bra, säger Daniel Eriksson.

DrSilverworm (6946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2014
750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared with a couple local raters. Very dark brown color, mostly clear, slight red hues on the edges. Thin off-white head, some ropes of lace. Holy moly, the nose on this! Did not expect it to be barrel aged, you get the bourbon barrel up front in the nose pretty quickly. Awesome cookie dough, brown sugar, good vanilla. Milk chocolate. Very nice barrel aroma. Medium-bigger body, smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Some decent chewiness to it. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, dry finish. Hides alcohol reasonably well. Very nice complex aromatic finish, lots of good balanced barrel notes that play well with the light porter aromas... Awesome chewy vanilla bourbon toasty bitter dark chocolate aftertaste... Just a very mild hint of oxidization, maybe (some light dry papery cardboard in the finish I think), but it’s very mild. Super tasty, impressive stuff. No burn at all.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Bottle (750 ml). Shared by cparles, thanks Chris! Dark brown with a medium beige head and some lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, light bourbon and some dark fruits. Taste is very similar to the aroma with a little more caramel and less bourbon. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A bit straigtforward, but not bad. Balance is good. Decent. 7-3-7-3-14. EDIT: Had this one again at Akkurat. Shared by a very nice local customer. Way better than last time I had it. More depth in both the aroma and taste. Bourbon was still quite present. It held up really well. Very good bourbon barrel-aged Porter. Nice balance.
