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.

Dark color. Remind me of strong coffe. This porter is very creamy and licorice tasting. Excellent porter!

1997, tasted 2002. Cuban coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, port, tied together extremely well by a bitterness that comes equally from hops and roast. Probably the best porter I’ve had. And the old-school label would get it extra points if I wasn’t already giving it a perfect score.

Dark sweetish barley-candy. Lots of coffee here, and chocolate. Lots of flavors apparently, and a deep lingering aroma. Perfect for a greasy pork meal or to just enjoy in front of the fire. It even tastes good in the hot summer sun.

Very dark with a tan thin head. Espresso nose and taste with a sweet finish. Nice porter (2000 edition).

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2004 Great Porter! The aroma and taste were filled with chocolate, woody, licorice, alcohol, coffee, and sweet tones. The appearance was completely black, but when I held it up to sunlight a little red shown through. Magnificent porter!

I poured this from a 2001 batch. Whispers of vanilla coffee and malted milkshake drift up from a creamy beige top. Solid black, I cannot see through this sea of brown ink. A deep roasted nugget with a brief appearance of bitter. This is a very smooth porter. It almost reminds me of a slightly hopped up Schwarzbier. Nice, this is candy bar nice.

Deep, rich, dark color. A little syrupy, with flavors of chocolate and toffee. However, not very much taste, and lacking in any distinguishing taste.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2002
Very nice and rich aroma. The first sip is quite good with the usual chocolate and chocolate notes. Unfortunately it gets a bit sweet and sticky after a while. This is far too mild, sweet and sirupy for me. It’s better than the 3.5-version though.

Big head that dissipates quickly. Rich, chocolatey aroma. Deep color that allows light through, making it a deep, ruddy amber. Roasted coffee flavor with a rich, balanced complexity. A bit herbal in the start with a pleasantly bitter finish. Be sure you pour this one evenly, especially if you are sharing. The flavor settles in the bottom.
