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.

rondphoto (2886) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 26, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Opaque black/brown with a solid beige head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is roasted malt that turns toward bitter in the swallow, returning to a semi-sweet in a lingering finish. True to it’s dark malt, a solid, smooth, great drinking brew. Recommended.

konungen (152) - - JAN 24, 2015
Årgång 2014. Flaska från Systembolaget. Väldigt mörk öl, nästan svart med en beige krona. Lätt söt öl med inslag av kaffe, nötter, karamell, rostad malt. Smakar mer än den doftar. En bra standard Porter helt enkelt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

furthur (426) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Believe this to be the same beer, label slightly different, "klassIII", 2013. Not quite opaque brown, cream head fades. Aroma lager, toasty, raisin. Taste nutty, raisin, rootbeer, brewed coffee. Slightly sweet in the middle. Palate about right, that is, not thin, but not imperial thick either. Carbonation soft and fine. This is excellent. Putting the taste back in lager!

2010 vintage. Pours a clear dark amber with a rich dark ruby cast. Excellent head volume, lacing and retention. Complex nose of dark fruit (fig, plum), molasses and caramel over notes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Light medium body with a bit of creaminess over a smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The World Class flavor profile is reasonably intense, quite complex and masterfully balanced. It begins with a caramel sweet rush that soon flows into the dark fruits. In the middle, molasses comes to the forefront and fades into a mild roast and hop bitterness. As it approaches the finish, chocolate sweetness is evident and oak notes (oxidative aging) are present as is a subtle smokiness. The finish is a slow fade of sweetness into a mild hop bitterness with just a hint of dryness.

Flaska 33 cl SB. Årgång 2014. Brunsvart kulör med beiget skum. Rostad,smått fruktig doft med kakao och kaffe. Smaken drar åt choklad av bitter sort med kaffe rostad malt och aningen metall. Relativt tunn kropp. Aningen söt med viss bitterhet med låg beska. Torr avslutning

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2015
Aug ’14. A 0.33l, 2014. bottle from Systembolaget, Upplands Väsby. It poured very dark brown body with small light brown head. Coffee and some sweet dark malt aroma, especially cocoa, chocolate pudding and caramel. Flavor was sweet, really fine, dominated not by so much coffee as in nose, but chocolate and cocoa now. Herbal hop bitterness was finely blended in. Not so full in body, thinner despite being really tasty. Long coffee-cappuccino-chocolate finish. I knew it’s a Swedish classic, but didn’t expect it to be so good!

elosop (208) - SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2014
Årgång 2013. Kolsvart med fin krona som dock ganska snabbt försvinner. Doftar inte så mkt, men smaken ngt lenare. Bred maltig choklad med lakrits på toppen. Tämligen markerad beska. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång, lite söt, men ändå torr. Mkt God som uppenbarligen kan sparas mkt längre än ett år.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Flaska från SB. 2009 vintage. Smak och doft av mörk torkad frukt, madeira, marsipan och lite kokkaffe, choklad och soja. Trots låg alkoholhalt har smakerna utvecklats bra. Rund och len, lätt beska.
