One of Michael Jacksonís 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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
A definitive ebony hue. Good, crackling tan head. As Fred Eckhart recommends, put this one to your ear and listen! Aroma is a blast of espresso, cocoa, anise and molasses. Rich and roasted, with loads of bitterness on the palate and a tenacious finish. Complex, if a bit gritty. Not a brew for novices or girly-men, this is stiff and substantial stuff. Label says best before August 2O1O, but who could wait that long? Unfortunately, the brewery has become bereft of their senses and is discontinuing this classic, so grab one if you can.

09.19.04 2001, 500ml Iíve had this beer a bunch of times, so Iím surprised I havenít entered any notes before. Beer pours a dark, dark brown with middling brown head. Very solid porter with nice coffee and dark fruit complexity. No beating around the bush, this is a standby and always very tasty. Perfect body for a porter is medium coating, lightly effervescent, finishes sticky.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2004
1997, small bottle. Freakin fantastic beer. Robust, complex, full bodied flavors intertwined to make just a great beer. The bittersweet chocolate and coffee are rich and tasty. Mellow dried fruits. Smooth and lightly gritty finish.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottled, argang 2002, sampled same year. Very dark in colour with thick brown head. Roasty, coffeeish aroma; bitter, roasty and chocolate notes in the palate. My friend (not a beer lover) when tasted it said: "Is this a beer? Is it possible for a beer to taste like this?" Then he went to Systembolaget and bought a bottle of Orval...

sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Pours a black, oilly color with a nice head that diminishes quickly to a fine lace. Aroma is typical porter, which is a very good thing. Flavor is roasted coffee, sweet malts, and a grassy, hop-laden finish. Very tasty beer, no doubt about it!

IndianaRed (3845) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Bottle Pours a very dark reddish brown a modest medium tan head and not much lacing. Aroma is dominated by a strong fruity smell. Grape jelly to be exact. Behind that is a slight prunes chocolate and coffee. Flavor is earthy, slightly sweet, prunes figs and brown sugar. Interesting no grape (like the aroma) or the burnt smokey flavor that is common on many porters. Mouth feel is the only dissapointment her. Soft and smooth but a bit thin. A very tasty brew. A shame I canít get it out here. Glad I had this before the use by date expired. Only 5.5 years away. Isn't it nice when you are mostly done with a rating of 4+ and realize that you stil have about 14 oz to go on it. : )Thanks again to Probiere for the trade.
