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.

This was yummy. The conditioning of this beer is outstanding. Smooth Chocolate/Coffee malt flavor. Hops have been reduced to the background (through conditioning). Aroma has that beautiful, fruity, toffee, oxidized note that makes every sip enjoyable. This beer stands out and is worth seeking. I must warn everyone about mistreated bottles, though......

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2004 Dark color, almost like coffee. Smells like a cappuchino. A bittertaste that also brings coffee...

Yeastmaster (44) - USA - AUG 16, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Very sweet aroma which reminds strongly of licorice. Almost 'corrugated' feel when swallowing. Would probably go well with meats - maybe pizza.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2003
A very dark brown color, with a small tan head. Very sweet aroma with touches of coffee and roasted malt. Fairly thin mouthfeel, but a tad oily. Taste is a bit more mild than I expected, but still very good. Not as heavy or full-flavored as I think a porter should be, but still pretty good.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Very dark, with a tad bit of creamy head. Smells is heavy on roasted malt and other sweets. Body is smooth and a tad oily with a decent bite to it. It has all the qualities of a damn good beer, but nothing that stands out from others.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 060902: Changed my rating. Had a bottle from 2004, stored for 2 years. Still black with a brownish head. This beer really grows with time. Wonderful soft malty chocolate aroma, even better flavor, chocolate, mailky and with a perfect palate. Very, very good. I recommend everyone to but a lot of bottles and then store them... Also, without adding it to my rating, I just loved the 1986 verision of this beer that was sold at the Stockholm Beer Festival 2004...

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2003
2003 vintage. Black, small head. Sweet and roasted aroma (oil or smoke?). Sweet (little chocolatey), liqourice-bitter finish. Full. A very good porter.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2003
(Vintage 2002) Dark ruby-brown colour with biege head. Roasty aroma with hints of cacao, sweet chocolate and coffee. Taste is to sweet and sticky, choclate, cacao and brown sugar. Needs to mature for 2 or 3 years.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Very commanding smokiness, almost rauchbier-like. The roasted barley flavor melts into a strange "hammy" character (something I've found a lot in smoked porters but perhaps haven't developed a taste for yet). Rather dark and mostly smooth, except for a touch of bitterness in that hammy flavor I was talking about.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2003
UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 (2001 bottle, so around 2 years old)...Wet charcoal aroma over an oversweet black grape juice which borders cough syrup sweetness...The majestuous elegance of subtlety is personified in a refined fieldberry milk gusto...Conversations are fed with an admirable tobacco and port wine combo...Proof that originality and exuberance are not a requirement for personality...

The really old bottles still available do not represent what this beer can be though, so watch out. Just had an 8-year-old one, and it was barely agreeable.
