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.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 hmm, didn’t this used to be a baltic porter? 2001 bottle: dark black with a medium tan head. very light aroma--would definitely like it to be stronger, but it’s lightly chocolate and earthy. much heavier in the body than in the nose. some smokiness mixed with a dark flowery. finishes with a small aftertaste, somewhat dry. very good!
recent bottle from my friend juha in finland! intense chocolate and raisin aroma, with lots of caramel and some coffee as well. body is similar; pleasantly mouth-coating and thick, and a light porter aftertaste. more!

Very dark reddish-brown with a head that starts to fizz but stops before dissipating, which it does, eventually. The aroma is light, mostly a bit of chocolate. The flavor is vinuous, a bit of raisin and chocolate followed by a faint bit of char.

ONe of the best Poreters I've had to date. Excellent appearance..Aroma was exceptional with its abundance of chocolate and coffee. Flavor was wonderfully done in this one strong chocolate upfront that was nicely balanced by the coffe bitterness later on.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Very dark brownish black color with a medium tan head. Very full aroma, with sweet roasty malt and dark fruit. Very full roasted malt and dark fruit flavor with a hint of salt and hops in the aftertaste. Very creamy feel, light carbonation. Yummy!

A new favorite porter for me. This beer has it all, and best of all, it is not one of those porters that may as well be a stout. It is thick, but not too thick; sweet, but not too sweet. If you like porter, this is the one.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Thick and rich and chewy and chocolatey and creamy and coffee-filled and a very nice, full-bodied porter indeed. The aroma is mildly coffee and cream, and the finish is perfectly smooth. One of the best porters I've had in a long time.

notalush (5398) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2004
[bottled in 2001] - excellent porter - the perfect pour, inky black, with about an inch of head that settles to an attractive ring of off-white lace - yeasty, roasty aroma - flavor is as complex as porters get - coffee, chocolate, plums, caramel - finishes with a touch of smoked malt, almost like a scottish ale - some creaminess lingers on the tongue - great stuff.

Impressive beer. Roasty aroma and a sweet chocolate flavor with dark malt accents.

Braudog (6026) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2004
2001 beer - Poured dark brown with nicely poofed head. Powerful aroma of roasted grains and sweetness. The beer is pleasantly smooth and understated, with a hint of woody chocolate and crunchy toast. Beautiful beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Very dark brown pour with mahogany edges. A large head that bubbled away rather quickly. Roast malt, caramel, chocolate and small hops comprise the nose. A slight coffee flavor that leads more into the chocolate and roast malts expirienced in the nose. A bit of a watery body and palate but finishes with bitterness. A good porter.
