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: NOV 26, 2006 1997 vintage sampled on 11/25/06: Bottle opens without any sound of carbonation. Pours a mostly still, barely-transparent mahogany brown with a thin ring of slightly-lacing tan head. Rich aroma of milk chocolate and aged, slightly oxidized caramel malt with a touch of roast. Body starts sweet and toffee flavored balanced with nice, mild dark chocolate bitterness toward a sticky, smoky, earthy finish. Some carbonation still remains in the palate. This seems to have aged very well for a regular porter.

2001 sampled on 7/22/04: Pours an oily rich opaqueness with a thin silky tan head. Aroma is rich and sweetly complex with some aged character and a touch of roasted malt. Starts nicely caramely sweet with some dark chocolatey bitterness and dryness showing up toward the finish. This has aged very well, considering it’s not bottle-conditioned, not highly hopped, and not very high in alcohol, plus it endured a trip across the Atlantic. A very amazing brew!

2001 sampled on 6/9/03: Rich brown oily appearance with a voluptuous tan head. Aroma of fresh baked chocolate brownies. Smooth chocolatey body immersed in caramel finishes dry and sweet. Good complexity and very mellow. The Cougar says it’s the best porter he’s had.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 Vintage 1999, sampled 2006. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of raising and plums, but also notes of oxidation and roasted malt, giving it a sligth acidity. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of plums and chocolate, but also light notes of the alcohol and oxidation, leading to a dry woody end. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

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

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.

thedm (5214) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 21, 2003
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.
