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.

Sample from tap, CBF 2012. Pitch black colour with a small tanned head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and caramel aroma with hints of wood and vanilla. Roasted, sweet taste with malts, chocolate and caramel. Full body with a creamy texture. Finished long lasting with roasted malts, chocolate and caramel, hints of bourbon and vanilla. Excellent porter! And it´s even a Carlsberg!

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Corked bottle
Dark mahogany color, almost black; small sized beige head; in the beginning it pours oily and undercarbonated. Mild aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, cardboard, cream. Correct body strength, very good chocolate flavor, with just light residual sweetness, and with nice vanilla touch; correct bitterness. Very Pleasant.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle at Mogwai. Helsingborg, December 2011.
Pours clear brown with a red hue. Weak head. Sweet aromas of bourbon presented as vanilla, fudge, cocos, caramel and butterscotch. Some notes of milk chocolate in the background as well as some fruity notes of red berries. Sweet in the taste with a slightly to weak body, could use some more malt. Alcohol shines through as well as sugar.

nickd717 (3569) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
750ml bottle thanks to largadeer. Dark brown in color with a small tan head and good lacing. Big bourbon aroma with dark chocolate and some roastiness. The flavor is good but a bit weak. Bourbon, oak, dark chocolate, and weak coffee. A bit thin on the palate, which is not always a bad thing. Medium-low carbonation. Good beer, but I’ve had better from the -bals in this style for sure.
