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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 Very dark brown but not quite opague appearance. Quickly diminishing head, smells like Nestle Toll House chips. Tastes like dusty chocolate and oddly muted grains. Lacks the finishing bitterness of a stout but has all the thick mouthfeel. Wierd, but interesting...not top shelf for me...many thanks to wunderbier!

UPDATED: APR 6, 2004 Deep brown with red. Smoky malt caramel and wheat aroma. Smells "old" like many imports do... I guess it's been on the shelf a bit. Moderate thickness, dull smoke and tobacco flavors with some old coffee and grains. Not doing much for me.

Apparenty a 2001 bottle. I was unimpressed by the appeance because it didn't pour any head and this has no lacing. However, everything else makes up for that. The aroma has maple, raisin and little roasted character. Flavor is a little sweet with raisin, sugar, slight chocolate and some bread. The mouthfeel is medium and fairly thin for a porter. Reminds me of why I like porters so much.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2006 Bottled. 2003. Dark brown with a tint of red. Pure chocolate notes in aroma with a grainy meadow touch. Very very nice mouthfeel, chocolate and caramel in wonderful harmony. Nice lingering bitterness. 1991 Vintage. So I had to pour this one parallely with a 2003 version. Dark brown head, well mostly just bubbles. Rich aroma of juniper. Wonderful, velvety mouthfeel with juniper notes. A few years overmatured but very good nevertheless. 1987 version. Very dry. Madeira notes but still with that dry-ish cocoa feel. Past its peak. Rating of 2002 vintage 18.5.2003 gave 7/4/8/4/16. Dark brown, light brown head. Dark chocolate and malt in the nose. Coffée and chocolate notes in the flavour with a clear smokey background. Mmm... [1999 vintage, sampled in september 2006] Raisins and wood in aroma. Pretty flat mouthfeel. Raisins, bit oxidized, hints of chocolate and wood. Short finish with no bitterness. 6/3/5/3/12
They say Vintage 2000 is the best, I believe so, though I have no raing for it.

This porter broke me at $5 fro a 16.9 oz. Pours a coal black but penetrable by light revealing hues of red and burgundy. Smell is distant like many porters but reveals chocolate, dates and earth. The taste is all porter woodsy malt flavors overtoned with dates and bark. Extremely creamy med body porter that I could enjoy with just about anything. One of the finest I've had.

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.

jtw (1119) - farmington, Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2004
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.
