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.

Draft @ Brasserie V. Pretty black, 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, herbal hops, vinous hints. Full, rich mouthfeel, creamed coffee, a hint of wood and licorice. Bittersweet, dry finish.

Cask version. Very smooth, balanced, and drinkable. Had it in bottle a couple times, and it was more flavorful. Beer Buddy App, PokegamaCreek

Staffan47 (802) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2013
Svårt att ratea när man vertikalar. 02 och 03 är favoriter (2012) 07 är riktigt bra men har inte toppat ännu. Vertikal 10, 12, 13. 10 är tydligt sötare och lite mer sammansatt och balanserad. Men inte dramatiskt. Dock inte nödvändigtvis bättre

NikkTwist (1383) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Pitch black ruby red pour. Clutching foamy off-white head. Unexpectedly dry Porter. Slight smoke. Slight funk. Aged red wine. Not a traditional Porter to me, but pretty nice.

worldbeertaste (1545) - AUSTRIA - MAR 22, 2013
Solid black with a thick, sticky, frothy, tan lasting head. Smells a bit stale it with roast, light fruit, liquorish and yeast. Thin light body. Tastes of sugar, chocolate, malt, caramel, and a bit of coffee bitterness. Light and easy to drink.

trapped (601) - TURKEY - MAR 21, 2013
Drought. Dark brown colour, foamy beige-brown head, weak coffee aroma, average carbonation, long finish. Smooth but not very strong, expected more.

Crockett (1002) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
Dark cola with ruby hues pour. Lasting short white head. Sweet toasted fruity nose with light berry tartness. That carries on to the flavours which incorporate some citrus/acidity and cocoa. Unnoticeable alcohol. Light caramel and smoke finishes it out.
