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.

Eructoblaster (3842) - 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 (4708) - 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 :)

beerhandy (195) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Bottle 2001 on label.English Pint glass Pours a thin tan head with notes of alcohol,roast malts and caramel. The beer itself is almost black with amber highlights. The flavor of roasted malt and chocolate balancing the a slight residual sweetness.The body is thin but the carbonation is not that lively so it really goes down smooth.A 5.5% beer that you can cellar. Whats not to love

PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2004
2001arang, drank in Dec. 2004. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Sweet carmel, chocolate and fruit, possibly prune aroma. Complex flavor containing roasted malt, sweet carmel, and a fruity, chocolatey, almost winelike linger on the tongue. Not my idea of a porter, but very unique and delicious.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle. Vintage 2004. The colour is opaque black (although the liquid is clear); the large, firm semi-compact foam is brown.

The smell is generous and complex with tones of black coffee, burned malt, sour cream and hints of hops and smoke.

The carbonation is very fresh, but at the same time very soft.

The taste is also complex with a somewhat smoked start. There is a large and creamy body that develops into a passing almost metallic bitterness that is replaced with a soft sweet flavour of coffee and dark chocolate. The harmonic aftertaste got a creamy burned taste with some hints of bitter hops.

This is clearly a session beer that one should take some time to experience. I cannot really grasp how the large brewery of Carlsberg Sverige can produce such a unique and fine beer.

Great stuff, that makes me a little proud beeing a Swede.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Bottle: Very disappointing almost non existant thin beige bubbles; dark brown body w/ some ruby highlights. Some toffee aroma with a strong sherry. Possibly past it’s prime. Light hints of chocolate, carmel, and vinous notes. Some brown sugary & more chocolate as it is chilled, like chocolate chip cookie dough. Maybe I’m goofy with this one, and I’m not bashing this beer, but it also smells like Purina dog food a little bit. Flavor is moderately roasty, chocolate and nutty toasty malts. Light winey vinous notes mid palate; toasty finish & aftertaste along w/ some sugary sweetness, molasses & hints of light rum. Lighter body, low carbonation w/ a dry m/f. I think this was a little past it’s prime as I seem to remember it being better the last time I had it a few years ago. I’ll re rate with a fresh bottle if it improves.

Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2004
(2001 Vintage) Decent brown head. Frothy on top and reduces slowly. Aroma of roasted grains, soy sauce, some milk chocolate and a hint of grapes. Color is pretty much black, maybe some brown under a pretty strong light. Thick in the mouth with a good bitterness. Coffee, dark chocolate and roasted grains. Finish is bitter and dry with a long coffee aftertaste. A damn good porter.
