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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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......

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2004 Dark color, almost like coffee. Smells like a cappuchino. A bittertaste that also brings coffee...

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Very sweet aroma which reminds strongly of licorice. Almost 'corrugated' feel when swallowing. Would probably go well with meats - maybe pizza.

A very dark brown color, with a small tan head. Very sweet aroma with touches of coffee and roasted malt. Fairly thin mouthfeel, but a tad oily. Taste is a bit more mild than I expected, but still very good. Not as heavy or full-flavored as I think a porter should be, but still pretty good.

Very dark, with a tad bit of creamy head. Smells is heavy on roasted malt and other sweets. Body is smooth and a tad oily with a decent bite to it. It has all the qualities of a damn good beer, but nothing that stands out from others.
