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.

330 ml bottle @ home, January 08, 2014 Beer from Systembolaget, Strømstad. Beer from a wine glass Have had this beer many times during the last years. Nice black color with a thin beige head and medium carbonation. Aroma is roasted malt,coffee,some hop and dark chocolate. A bit thinner and weaker in taste than i could remember. It was also a bit dryer than i could remember The beer had a medium dry and bitter finish A bit confused regarding this beer. It was one of my favorites, but i havent tasted it for years. Better luck next time i hope.

Mortlach (959) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 29, 2013
29/11/2013 330ml bottle shared @La Tana (thanks Valeriotto!). Nera, non molto densa, riflessi color coca cola, schiuma leggera beige, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, caramello, note tostate, leggermente vinose. In bocca è squilibrata, malto, caramello, leggere note caffettose, appena cioccolatose, ossidazione, non molto in stile. Corpo leggerino, forse troppo, carbonazione soft. Purtroppo non era in buone condizioni, da riprovare.

Black pour with light brown head. Aromas of mild coffee, toffee and chocolate. Thin body, medium/small palate. Close to no bitterness.

nellycale (171) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2013
From bottle. Pours a black hur with a flat - very little head. Flavor is outstanding with coffee, caramel, and hints of vanilla. Biggest shortfall is a real lack of carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SamTheBarrel (317) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2013
330ml bottle, pours clear brownish black with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Aroma and taste of roasted malt and a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. Light sweetness with a medium bitterness. Medium-light body, smooth texture and average carbonation. An okay Baltic Porter, but with too light body and low ABV.

jb (2057) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle shared with Ron. Thanks Ron! After a stellar IS and IIPA, this one underwhelmed. It might not have been its fault. Cidery nose, with cola. Clear, reddish appearance. Palate is thin, malty, sweet. Doesn’t fit the normal Baltic profile.

Ron (2348) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle. Poured dark with a little glint of brown against the light. Mocha head. Tough to get a good nose due to the dryness, but definitely some coffee, dark chocolate and herbal hops. Full, rich mouthfeel, creamed coffee, a hint of wood and licorice. A somewhat dry finish.

Abrakarl (249) - SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2013
OK so this is a Baltic porter. More body than the one at 3,5%. Slightly better at every part. Still not too exciting. Weak aroma with some cola in it.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
Sample at SMÖF. Dark malty with some chocolate and wort bread. Similar taste. Very tasty beer.

ElManana (135) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2013
Overall I thought this was decent but it was thinner than expected and developed a watery taste at times. The huge roasted flavor and sherry like aroma was very unique and the roasted flavor lasted forever. A nice porter, but not one I’d search for. 1998 bottle.
