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.

This is the world-class Swedish porter that is unknown in Sweden! This beer is the best porter in the world! It has layers of flavor that you will not find in any other beer due to long fermenting and lager times. It is a bigger contribution the world than even Abba, Björn Borg, or IKEA!

TorbenJensen (784) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2015
The foam is serious and long lasting and emits lovely aroma of coffee and hard roasted malt abundant. The flavor is deep, rich and carrying coffee, lots of hard roasted malt, slightly burnt and chocolate. This porter is one of them you should not miss.

bennetj17 (10) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Black appearance, but not very dense or thick. You can see through the edges a bit in the light. The head is thin, with a tan foam that settles leaving a pencil thin ring. The nose has a faint roastiness, with suggestions of caramel and toffee. The flavor balances nicely between toffee sweetness and roasted chocolate malts. I’m getting a bit of vanilla as well, and the finish leaves a keen bitterness on the tongue. The alcohol seems quite mild, and I’m trying to figure out how this qualifies as a Baltic Porter. The mouthfeel has just the right degree of thickness, with a sharp carbonation that holds up well. Overall I’m glad this was recommended to me. It’s a fairly robust porter with good depth of flavor and supreme drinkability. Definitely a nice change from the typical American style porters that are so common. Highly recommended.

Svart med litet skum. Kaffe, malt med en lätt känsla. Inte så fyllig utan lite för lätt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

metalspice (327) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2015
Svart, men litt lys kommer gjennom i kantene. Nesten fraværende skum. Lakris, kaffe og noe kjeks i duften. Lakris og kaffe også i smaken sammen med en fin bitter avslutning. Også litt portvin i avslutningen. Litt tynn avslutning.

stevoj (2950) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from Boise Coop. Right in the wheelhouse for a classic porter. Dark, sweet and malty, pour has nice fluffy head which leaves streaky lacing. Nose is sweet malt, leading into flavors of molasses, peat and sweet malts. Classic porter.
