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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Delicious porter that, although poured deep brown and headless, still provided a creamy, well bodied mouthfeel. The aroma is full of licorice and coffee atop an underlying scent of sweet malt and chocolate. Very roasted flavors, malt & chocolate. Nice dry, coffee finish.

madsberg (11018) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2005
Bottled 2003 vintage: Dark red/brown coloured.Light brown medium sized head. Buttery, light roasted and coffeish aroma. A little vague for my likings. Chocolate, roast and coffee in the flavour. The roastyness last till the end. The beer is a little dry and insipid. Had it cellered for approx. 1,5 year.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Ive never seen a beer this black. It looks more like im drinking dark molasses. There is little to no head, but this is probably due to the fact the carbonation has fizzled since this is a 1997 vintage (ie 7 years old). The taste has slight maltyness with little hops and barley flavor, yet somehow still has a good flavor. Hints of caramel, prunes, and cashews round out the flavor. I would like to try some younger vintages so see if more carbonation and freshness adds to this delightful brew. Dont know if this 8.8oz bottle was worth 6 bucks but it was a bad 50th beer!

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Just poured this one. Black hole colored (no light coming through my desk lamp) with a two finger tan head. 5 for appearance. Aroma reminiscent of Fuller’s London Porter, with big malt, some fruit, chocoff, corn flakes, piney hops, and slight soy sauce. Tastes wonderfully balanced, firm, and complex, with hints of chocolate syrup, capuccino, cherries, corn flakes, molasses. Gets more chocolate syrupy as it warms. Super smooth finish. A delicious beer. Outstanding! If Andrew Carnegie were alive, he’d love this beer that’s named after him. He’d probably even put it in Carnegie Hall next to his art collection.

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Bottle labeled Argang 1997. Poured a dark black with almost no head. Aromas of chocolate and licorice . Lighter tastes. Very light coffee on top of the chocolate. Body was a little thin.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Årgång 1997: Pours pure black with just a small halo of foam. Aroma is sweet prune. Flavor is sweet with hints of chocolate, a little smoke, light liquorice with a light coffee and cream finish. Smooth, but light palate. Overall a good porter, but maybe slightly over rated.

Eructoblaster (3476) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Argang 2004. Dark brown (very close to black) body with reddish and amber glints. It is topped with an average off-white creamy head. Nice malty aroma with chocolate and roasted coffee hints. Taste is very well balanced and relatively mild. The roasty and smokey notes are quite evident, especially in its long and very nice finish. Makes me looking forward to my next visit to Systembolaget!

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Bottle from 2001. Dark brown color, medium tan head. Coffee and malt aroma. So initially this beer comes through with a thick, creamy body, milk sugary sweet, black cherry, fairly mellow. The roasted tobacco hints are nice. But from there this becomes a somewhat one dimensional brew, if you ignore a lingering flavor that I cannot liken to anything except that underlying mineral water base specific to a lambic. In this setting, that flavor just doesn’t work. So in technical terms, overall, starts out pleasant, then becomes kinda dull.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2004
(Bottled, Årgång 2004, 5.5% ABV) Very dark, reddish brown color with a smallish, beige head. Slightly sweet, milk-chocolatey and brown-sugary, malty aroma. Sweetish, chocolatey, roasted-malty, somewhat acidic flavor with a bitter, dryish but sticky-sugary finish. Medium-bodied, smooth and slicky, low-carbonated palate. A smooth, chocolatey, sweetish and pleasant porter, but not quite top class. Wish I had a ’94 sample :)
