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.

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 (5452) - 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.

HighlanderOne (1047) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2003
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.

bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2003
A lot of carbonation. This is the louded beer I've ever had, it was like pouring a can of cola. Not bad, but it did taste a bit watered down.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Pours and looks nice. A bit watery with a faint finish. A Fuller's London Porter mixed half and half with water would still be better than this.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Almost black in color. Enjoyable. I really liked this beer. It has a great aroma. Its malty and roasty. It has a nice thick body. Its pours with a nice full head.

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......
