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.

brownish black, but remarkably light in body. I think I'll lay down a bottle for a couple of years, as others have suggested

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Black. No head on this beer. Roasted taste with some coffee. A little chocolate taste. Thick and heavy. A small bite at the end.

Dark brown/black, and the taste was as full and thick as the appearance. Full of roastiness - I was reminded of sweetened coffee. Seemed to have just the right amount of carbonation. I got hints of raisin chocolate and anise in this along with the coffee.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Oh yeah a small head with medium to fine light brown bubbles that quickly fades away. A deep brown color almost black body. It has a very heavy aroma full of hops. Low carbonation with heavy flavor and coffee taste typical of a good dark porter. I found myself taking several sips to make my taste calls. It has a typical dark flavor with no aftertaste. The head is gone now as I complete this report. It still has a bit of an after taste that I didn't care for but drinkable.

Poured a dark brown with ruby highlights (clear when backlit). Thin tan head that was short lived. Aroma of roasted malt, coffe, and chocolate. Flavor of sweet malt, coffee, light chocolate, bread, and roastiness. A touch of vanilla, almond, and butterscotch combine to give a creamy, nuttiness in the backend. Light acicidity, moderate bitterness. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Full flavor, but the palate was a little thin considering all the flavor.

Looks like a sweet stout. Dark brown,maybe black in color little head. Medium body. Roasted coffee flavor. Somewhat of a sweet finish. A very enjoyable porter.

An almost jet black pour with a small tan head that does not linger, it has a slight, very faint coffeeish aroma, but that is about it. Full bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is rich with espresso, coffee, and chocolate. Very nice, the finish is long and sweet with roasted malts and licorice. This stuff is great, one of the best porters I have had, it is thick, flavorful, and delicious.

Ahhh - lovely motor oil like pour. Deep dark black as night appearance. Licorice, coffee, chocolate - all swirling around in my mouth right now. Bit of a burnt wood aroma to it - pleasant. Overall - an excellent porter - leaning more towards a stout. Thanks to Aurelius for this one!.

Sweet, dark malt-grainy aroma. Chocolate, cherry, smokey flavor. Palate smacks of lactose and coffee, so the beer is on the verge of being a stout. The beer seems to thin out as it sits. Drinkable, not too bitter and quite good.

Dark ruby color with a small nonlasting head. Aroma is sweet fruity wine like. Ugh so is the taste. This is no porter, more of a sweet stout. The sweetness is clinging leaving a bad aftertaste. I am now glad it came in such a small bottle. This is like bad medicine on the tongue, where are the crackers, help.
