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.

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.

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 (215) - 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 (2185) - 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.

Vignale (2576) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2014
Flaska från SB. 2009 vintage. Jag har druckigt den några gånger men aldrig så här gammal. Tydlig utveckling med mycket mörk torkad frukt, madeira, marsipan och lite kokkaffe, choklad och soja. Känns inte platt utan ganska spänstig men betydligt lättare än som färsk. Ingen stor doft men smaken håller. Funkar riktigt bra att lagra.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3344) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle picked up in Sweden, after having the excellent Synebrychoff Koff Porter I was expecting more from this. The color was pitch black but the body was a tad light. The flavor was solid but not as impressive as some other baltic porters I had during my 2013 trip around the Baltic. A good cheap(for Sweden) porter but nothing jaw-dropping.

gripweed57 (1000) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2014
330 ml bottle. Translucent cola brown color. Thick rocky tan head with clinging lace. Smoky roasted malt nose has hints of cocoa and floral hops. Sweet toasted malt flavor is subtle and smooth. Notes of cocoa and coffee with complex spicy hops. A touch of licorice in mid taste. Dryish finish. I find that the depth of flavor improves as the brew warms. Very well made. A world class porter.
