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.

Pours a dark brown body with a red glow and a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is quite weak penetrated by pilsner malt (!), hops and some smoke and liquorice. Flavor is nice but also a little weak and thin. Notes of sweet roasted malt, brown sugar, smoke and hops. A tastefull porter but needs more body to be great! It will probably gain some after a couple of years of storage!

My 30th country, woo-hoo! Dark burgundy-brown body and thick, creamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, berries, and some light coffee notes. Well-balanced flavor and smooth body. Thanks to loweredsixth for sending me a taste of Sweden.

BBB63 (6502) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2004
2001: Muddy deep brown with reddish hues producing a frothy fading tan head and good lace. The aroma is a wonderful hints of heavy caramel, toffee, prunes, raisin, very earthy and slightly woody, near vinous. The taste starts sweet and malty with a twangy fruit and sharp hop undertone. Chocolate tones run throughout this beer. Some smoky tones and lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is full and soft, while not sticky. A excellent old porter with lots of complexity and depth. Loved it, Thanks loweredsixth for the brew.

2001... Black, not opaque, violet spots where the light shows through. Tight creamy tan head, some lacing. Sweet chocolate, coffee, fudge and toffee aroma. Chocolate malty taste, then coffee and finally finishing dry and grassy.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2004
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!

3fourths (8696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2004
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.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2004
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.

zen (41) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAR 22, 2004
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.
