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.

2001 bottling. Beautiful body, with creamy medium-lasting head. Aroma is very pleasant if on the mild side, milk chocolate raisins and coffee. Rich, roasty, chocolaty flavor, very smooth, perhaps could use a touch of hops for character? But overall a very fine brew; tis the season for great roasty porters.

Very dark, with virtually no head. Execellent balance of malty sweetness and hops. Sort of sweet with chocolate, fruit, and coffee. Nice flavor and feel but not as good as most American porters that I have tried. Bought at sam’s in chicago for $3.99.

Pours pretty dark, with a virtually no head. The malt is sort of sweet with fruits, caramel, chocolate, and toffee, but also roasted leaving coffee and burnt toast. Finishes with noticable hop bitterness, but nothing overwhelming. A very nice, easy drinking porter.

Underrated beer in my opinion. . .wonderfully full fruity aroma. Nicely roasted, creamy with some sweet syrup (melted caramel or maple), balanced with bitter notes and some coffee. I really enjoyed this one!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 1998 edition sampled in 2002: opague super dark brown with swirling tan galaxical wonders...
Coffee nose with roastedness and some cocoa sweetness..
starts good for a second or two of nice creamy sweet coffee but suddenly chooses to show some vegital pooeyness...the vegital notes subside in the finish where the flavor goes back to a more pleasant coffee creaminess with a tad of metalicness...As Jim Carrey says in 'liar liar', I've had better
