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.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottled, argang 2002, sampled same year. Very dark in colour with thick brown head. Roasty, coffeeish aroma; bitter, roasty and chocolate notes in the palate. My friend (not a beer lover) when tasted it said: "Is this a beer? Is it possible for a beer to taste like this?" Then he went to Systembolaget and bought a bottle of Orval...

sethdude (702) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Pours a black, oilly color with a nice head that diminishes quickly to a fine lace. Aroma is typical porter, which is a very good thing. Flavor is roasted coffee, sweet malts, and a grassy, hop-laden finish. Very tasty beer, no doubt about it!

IndianaRed (2597) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Bottle Pours a very dark reddish brown a modest medium tan head and not much lacing. Aroma is dominated by a strong fruity smell. Grape jelly to be exact. Behind that is a slight prunes chocolate and coffee. Flavor is earthy, slightly sweet, prunes figs and brown sugar. Interesting no grape (like the aroma) or the burnt smokey flavor that is common on many porters. Mouth feel is the only dissapointment her. Soft and smooth but a bit thin. A very tasty brew. A shame I can’t get it out here. Glad I had this before the use by date expired. Only 5.5 years away. Isn't it nice when you are mostly done with a rating of 4+ and realize that you stil have about 14 oz to go on it. : )Thanks again to Probiere for the trade.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 26, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 Bottled 2001. Pour black with little head. Had a nutty roasted aroma with some hint of chocolate, coffee, and fig. Definately feels like milk on the palate. Has a sweet fruity taste including plums, prunes, and fig. This brew is more sweet than most porters. I have got to say that this is one good porter. I enjoyed this bad boy more as it got warmer. Thanks to Landseer for this 2nd tasting! Re-rate: Aroma is chocolate, coffee, nuts, carmel, and some cherry. All the aromas are in proportion to each other with none dominating. The cherry is slight however. Flavor is chocolate, nutty, carmel, and has a velvet milk texture.

Bottled 2001Vintage; Tasted July 18, 2004: Almost black color with a tan head. Malty aroma with some hint of chocolate and coffee. Those two pick up quite a bit in the taste. I could have sworn it felt a bit like milk on the palate!

maltdog (619) - Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2004
2001. Black as Texas crude, with a thin mocha head that fades in minutes. Sweet and fruity nose yields sorghum or molasses, currants or prunes, cranberry, blackberry, and lavender(!). Starts with a lavish espresso flavor, tempered by fruity acidity and balanced tannins; then, essences of apple, almond, juniper, and RC cola paint the tongue. Chocolate elements are evident, but restrained. Reminds me of both good ruby port, and double-strength Colombian coffee. No carbonation. Pleasantly full-bodied, almost syrupy, but not cloying. Decadent aftertaste of bittersweet chocolate, turkish coffee, black cherry, marzipan, leather, licorice, hop. An excellent elixir that demands to be sipped and savored.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2004
This is an 8.82 oz. bottle bought in Atlanta in 2001. It is the 1998 version and it held up quite well! It has very little carbonation and virtually no head. The aroma is of sweetness, malt, caramel, prunes, and soy sauce. The flavor contains very little hops. It tastes very malty like a chocolate malt (shake). It is dark, sweet, malty, chocolaty, fruity, soy saucy and has a medium body. Overall a nice combination of flavors that developed over a 6 year period.
