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.

Corked 750ml bottle, thanks to Robert Dyrnes for buying it at Systembolaget in Kalix. Gives a good shot with smoke when opened. Pours a fawn-coloured head to a deep dark brown body. Dark malty aroma with almond and earth. Bourbon vanilla barrel to the taste buds added by chocolate and raisin, and upheld by a lingering bittersweet ending. Nice, but I had, in fact, expected more. Shared with Finn on a dark eve in Skibotn, 05.10.2012.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2012
Sampled @Papsoe’s summer tasting session. Pours translucent, the darkest brown, with a yellow blond lace on top. Refined, gently sweet roasted malts to the nose. Hint of tinned dark fruit, peppery caramel and vanilla. Sweet rounded malt flavor. Faint alcohol and a pleasant bitterness both from the malts and the hops. A touch of English licorice, creamed coffee and dark fruit marmelade. Smooth and balanced. Utterly complex with all ingredients well integrated. Yum!

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at ØlFestival 2012. A black one, or at least it’s dark, dark brown, and topped by a nice, finger-thick dark beige head. Some dried fruits and licorice on the nose, a touch of alcohol too, but mostly it’s roasted malts. The flavor has a nice bitterness and some alcohol, as well as licorice, dried fruits and a coffee kind of roastiness. Full body, lightly warming on the palate. Roasted finish with some sweetness and dried fruits. Nice, but not impressive. 120510

A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a really long duration. A complex and wellbalanced beer with a lot of aroma and taste.
