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.

I had the 2001 ’vintage’, it probably would have developed its character if it had been cellared a few years like the brewery recommends, but as I personally have an extremely weak character, I was unable to wait! Even as fresh as this Carnegie is a fine porter. It may be tiresome repeating that porters have coffee-like qualities - actually, a good porter like this one has a lot better flavour than any cup of coffee! The aftertaste is moreish, this is definitely a beer I’ll buy again. Good to experience that Pripps are able to brew something far better than their shitty lagers. Same recipe since 1836, great! Now if I just could find someone with an iron will and a huge padlock who would cellar a few bottles for me...

Good stuff. A nice rounded flavor, with a slightly hoppy aroma. Not great, but not bad.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2002
Ahh. A nice, smooth porter. Hearty and dark, the way it should be. A little sweet, with a strong finish.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2002
Best before April 2010, drank in April 2002, 16.9 OZ bottle: Perhaps I should get another bottle and cellar it for a few years. It tastes watery and the aftertaste is too sweet.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2002
beautiful dirty motor oil brown color. Wonderful milk chocolatey and alcohol scent with a smokey malt flavor and a hint of prune. Very smooth and finishes oily. One of the better baltic porters I have had.

Even the aroma is creamy; the dude with the nose, ecrvich. hits it again with the milk chocolate reference. Hevily laces the sides of the glass, just the tiniest amount of light gets through. Retains carbonation. Not too sweet, nice and malty, hops restrained to say the least. Roasted finish. I also am becoming partial to the style.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2002
2001 version. Pours black with a brown fluffy head that quickly disappates into an espresso like appearance. Nice flavors with coffee, smoke, toffee, licorice and roasted grain flavors prevalent. Strong bitterness up front, which quickly gives way to a nicely balance smooth and semi sweet finish. Slightly heavier than medium body. Yet another great porter almost as good as Anchor (not as sweet), Fullers (not as flavorful), and Sam Smiths Taddy Porter. This is definitely becoming one of my favorite styles.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2002
Sampled both the 1999 and 2000 versions. The 2000 is rated here as it was smoother (perhaps the larger bottle had something to do with it). Toasted chocolate flavors with enough sweetness to offset.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2002
Dark brown, nearly black body with a decent, quickly fading head. Nice, slightly chocolatey nose. Body is kind of like semi-sweet chocolate, with some toasted malt notes and a light bitterness that balances the sweetness very nicely.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2002
A first rate example of a porter. Nice rich aroma, and a slightly bitter/burnt chocolate flavor. Reasonably smmoth and dry finish.
