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.

A Swedish Porter! Wahoo...My ancestors were Swedish and after tasting this one I would I am proud to call myself a swede! This dark, almost opaque porter pours smoothly into a glass with a nice light tan head. The head dissapates to fine layer of foam. The aroma is full of nice notes of molasses and malt. The flavor is full, but not overpowering with roasted grains tying into a perfect blend with the molasses(treacle) flavor. Full bodied and long lasting finish the hints at coffee and licorice. Wow I call this a great porter and would be happy to sip on this anyday of the year, but it is really nice in the fall. Skol !

Ever so slight brown head, a small ring of lace left rimming the edge of my glass. Black with a brown hue at the edges.Big nose of dark malts, smoke and licorice.Med/full body, creamy, slick, somewhat coating. Roasted malt, chocalate, mild vinous notes and a touch more smoke work well together. Finish is wet/dry. Damn fine porter!

Ulla (17) - Halmstad, Nebraska, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2003
One of the few we Swedes can compete with on the international market. Full of chocolate and burnt sugar and though dry in the palate.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2003
2001 vintage
Pours a smooth black color with ruby edges, not much for head or lacing; a little oily. Aroma is very complex with sweet raisins, fig and port shining first then followed by roasted chocolate and oak. Very refined. Flavor is subtle but explodes with flavors: smoke, chocolate, raisins. Finishes lightly sweet with a perfectly dry coffee mouthfeel. This is a great porter, I'm glad this was recommended I try.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2003
The flavor has the richness of an imperial stout, but it is contained in a mere 5.5% beer: absolutely amazing. Reminds me a lot of Rasputin. Chocolatety, perfect level of sweetness. One of the creamiest bodies I've encountered. Tremendous, and a great #600.

TheBeerGod (5341) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2003
2001 vintage. Pours tar black with a decent tan head. Nose is predominantly coffee with a hint of malt and dark chocolate. The taste confirms this. More coffee with some sweetness. Very smooth and not as bitter as I was expecting. Lightly dried finish with more of the chocolate coming out. Great beer!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2003
A very nice appearance in the pour, with a head that disappears faster than you can pour it, but leaves some nice creaminess at the top. Overwhelming taste of coffee, with a burnt bitter taste like espresso. Nicely roasted with a slightly oily mouthfeel, after warming, this one becomes slightly unbalanced and watery. Still though, creamy and rich, and not bad, definitely worth a try.

What a different porter! A little lighter in color than I expected and the flavor-coffee-coffee-coffee!A great beer for breakfast.Not really full and rich but very flavorful. Worth a try.

As advertised on the label, coffee aroma that carried into the flavor. A good, hearty porter. Head disappeared fast but finished nicely to make up for that.
