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: 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.

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.

[1996, 14-07-2002] Dark, poor head and carbonation. Very strong aroma: malt, huge porto wine, liquorice. Good taste, mix of roasted malt, light coffee and chocolate, liquorice, porto wine (this is quite rare!); the body isn’t really strong. Good palate, a bit sweet.

The aroma is molasses and coffee. Very dark with little head. Slightly sweet with some bitterness at the end. A bit short in taste.

An exceptionally delicious porter.
