COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews. Carnegie Porter was brewed for the first time in 1836 and tastes the same today as it did then. Carnegie Porter has a creamy head with a scent of coffee. Its sweet and wellrounded flavor is balanced by the bitterness of the hops. Storage helps the flavor mature and enhances its harmony.

Maakun (594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle labeled just 'porter' but 5.5%. Black with nice but fast disappearing beige head. Liquorice, some dry cocoa, lots of malts and some faint herbs. Some apple and berries. Medium bodied. Ok porter but nothing exceptional for me.

Senap (360) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2014
En flaska av årgång 2013. Förvånade mild och snäll. All de förväntade smakelementen är på plats. Något nedtonade, lagring?

czar (4374) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
pours unclear medium dark brown with a small light beige cap showing some retention and lacing. medium roastiness, sweet milk chocolate, fresh coffee beans, faint red fruitiness, although dried fruitiness is present, sweetness - lactose, molasses, hint of cardboard. moderately low carbonation, light body - some texture but feels a tad watery, even this relatively low abv, semi-sweet short peppery-grassy finish. decently crafted but kind of far from the top-50..

cmacklin (266) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
11.2 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small, light brown head. Sweet aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet flavour of dried fruit, roasted malt, liquorice, dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Full body with a smooth, oily texture and flat carbonation. Very nice porter.

Davhgbrew (940) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Aroma is slight roast and pure toasty malt. Body is medium and if you closed Your eyes you might think you were drinking a Malty pale lager. Very crisp and clean, but with a little roast and black malt. Michael Jackson top 500, sure why not.

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Very classic, if not archetypical, Baltic porter since 1836, claiming to still have the same taste as back then. Loose, creamy white head, colour as good as black with faint reddish hue. Nose gets coffee powder, bitter chocolate, iron, liquorice, black pepper, soy sauce and raisins. Roasted bitter taste, slick maltiness, lots of liquorice, bit resinous and oily, iron but not in a dull metallic way as with many lagers, finishing in roasted bitterness. Tasteful and hard to ignore classic.

Beergeek23322 (2270) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2014
6/25/2010. 500 ml. bottle. Black pour with a tan head. Licorice, chocolate and coffee aromas with roasted malt. Robust and bitter and a meal in itself.

Delicious new style! Chocolate malt aroma, nice lacing but little head. Great bitter dark chocolate flavor. Wish I had a pastry, maybe a cheesecake, ti go with it.
