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.

Creamy head, thick. Sweet aroma, chocolatey. Some malts. Dark chocolate color. Bittersweet. Hoppy and sugary. Fairly carbonated.

Got this in a brown 16.0 oz bottle with a yellow label. Marked to drink before 2010, and since this is 2003 and this bottle was filled ostensibly in 2001, this must be expected to age well. Aroma is complex and wonderful. I detect raisons, molasses and burnt honey. The pour is deep black with maybe just a hint of red highlights. It is rich and oily looking, displaying a wispy, beige head. Good lace grabs the glass. Lots of sugars here, apparently. Tastes teriffic. Lots going on here, including that molasses, and a little cocoa mixed with a kind of charcoal flavor. Expresso flavors as well, and dates, followed ever so subtly by a hop balance which just melds with the malt. Finish is slightly sweet, but not cloyingly so. One of the finest porters I have had.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 hmm, didn’t this used to be a baltic porter? 2001 bottle: dark black with a medium tan head. very light aroma--would definitely like it to be stronger, but it’s lightly chocolate and earthy. much heavier in the body than in the nose. some smokiness mixed with a dark flowery. finishes with a small aftertaste, somewhat dry. very good!
recent bottle from my friend juha in finland! intense chocolate and raisin aroma, with lots of caramel and some coffee as well. body is similar; pleasantly mouth-coating and thick, and a light porter aftertaste. more!

Very dark reddish-brown with a head that starts to fizz but stops before dissipating, which it does, eventually. The aroma is light, mostly a bit of chocolate. The flavor is vinuous, a bit of raisin and chocolate followed by a faint bit of char.

ONe of the best Poreters I've had to date. Excellent appearance..Aroma was exceptional with its abundance of chocolate and coffee. Flavor was wonderfully done in this one strong chocolate upfront that was nicely balanced by the coffe bitterness later on.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Very dark brownish black color with a medium tan head. Very full aroma, with sweet roasty malt and dark fruit. Very full roasted malt and dark fruit flavor with a hint of salt and hops in the aftertaste. Very creamy feel, light carbonation. Yummy!

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2004
A new favorite porter for me. This beer has it all, and best of all, it is not one of those porters that may as well be a stout. It is thick, but not too thick; sweet, but not too sweet. If you like porter, this is the one.

Thick and rich and chewy and chocolatey and creamy and coffee-filled and a very nice, full-bodied porter indeed. The aroma is mildly coffee and cream, and the finish is perfectly smooth. One of the best porters I've had in a long time.

notalush (4748) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2004
[bottled in 2001] - excellent porter - the perfect pour, inky black, with about an inch of head that settles to an attractive ring of off-white lace - yeasty, roasty aroma - flavor is as complex as porters get - coffee, chocolate, plums, caramel - finishes with a touch of smoked malt, almost like a scottish ale - some creaminess lingers on the tongue - great stuff.

Impressive beer. Roasty aroma and a sweet chocolate flavor with dark malt accents.
