COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
One of Michael Jacksonís 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.

Probably one of the better porters I have ever had. It is missing all of the ashy-ness that I normally associate with the style- might have to do with this one being European instead of American.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Pitch black with lots of tan head. Nice broken sheets of lacing. Herbaceous, malty alcoholic aromas. Chcolately and almost sea salty, with a succulent savory burst. Very creamy and rich. Palate is smooth and fulfilling, like good chocolate cherry bread. A little metallic aftertaste brings this one down for me.

anise and roasted chocalate upfront with a creamy mouthfeel and avery longlasting dry finish. Rasins andPlums roundout this very nice Baltic porter.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Bottle. Very dark brown color with decent sized brown head. Aroma is malty with a hint of dark fruit. Taste is smooth and malty with a little roast. Pretty decent, but nothing to write home about.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2005
1997 vintage: Poured coffee brown, no head, and thin. Chocolate and roasted nuts in aroma and flavor...bitter long finish. Disappointed by its thin texture and feel in the mouth.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2005
bottle, 1997 vintage. big aroma of licorice, raisins, alcohol, and sweet maltiness. black body, no head. flavour is not unlike milk chocolate. some roastiness and coffee-like properties. very sweet. body is a little on thin side. Itís funny because I didnít realize how old this bottle was..I just picked it up off the shelf at Merchantís Fine Wines in Dearborn without thinking about it. That said, it turned out to be a decent porter.

Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Thanks to rickgordon for this one. 2003 vintage. Sweet roasted malt, Twizzlers, chocolate and some coffee. Light smoky notes. Dark black clear with thin brown lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with roasted malts, Twizzlers and coffee, some chocolate. Mild smoky notes with tangy bitterness. Medium roasted, lightly burnt malt. Decent bitter finish and bittersweet after.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2005
í97 bottle, 8oz size. Uninspiring pour: watery brown with a smattering of large bubbles on top. Predominant licorice in the aroma backed up by rye bread and grain husk. This aroma reminds me of Triple Bock. The thin-looking body in the pour shows up again with the first sip. Thin dark malt and weak coffee along with apple tartness comprise the dissapointing flavor. Dry, appley finish. I canít believe I paid $4 for this bottle...

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Bottled, alc. 5.5%, 2004 vintage in 2005 (BB 12/2014)
Dark almost opaque brown color, good creamy expresso head. Aroma has raisins, roasted malts and coffee: roast, sour and sweet. Sticky sweetish mouthfeel, medium-bodied. As expected delicious chocolaty roasted malts dominate palate. Attacking bitterness and slightly hard/flat mouthfeel too. Aging and extra alcohol would do good to this one. (7/5/7/3/15 3.7)
Vintage 2006 in 2006, alc. 5.5%
Molasses, very light roasted notes in the aroma. Slightly burnt molasses, sweetish, plain. Quite industrial taste as fresh. (6/4/6/3/12 3.1)
Bottled vintage 1998 in 2006
Chocolaty, a bit oxidated nose. Wineous, flat, rounded, roasted coffee beans. Not sweet, drier and more chocolaty than 2005-2006 vintages. Unfortunately past its prime. (6/4/5/4/12 3.1)
Vintage 2000 in 2006
Portwineous nose, clean palate - no oxidation. Chocolaty, not sweet. Rounded, propably "the peak" vintage right now. (7/4/7/3/14 3.5)
