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.

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.

Ahhh - lovely motor oil like pour. Deep dark black as night appearance. Licorice, coffee, chocolate - all swirling around in my mouth right now. Bit of a burnt wood aroma to it - pleasant. Overall - an excellent porter - leaning more towards a stout. Thanks to Aurelius for this one!.

Aurelius (5070) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2003
Sweet, dark malt-grainy aroma. Chocolate, cherry, smokey flavor. Palate smacks of lactose and coffee, so the beer is on the verge of being a stout. The beer seems to thin out as it sits. Drinkable, not too bitter and quite good.

Dark ruby color with a small nonlasting head. Aroma is sweet fruity wine like. Ugh so is the taste. This is no porter, more of a sweet stout. The sweetness is clinging leaving a bad aftertaste. I am now glad it came in such a small bottle. This is like bad medicine on the tongue, where are the crackers, help.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Nice dark brown pour with a decent tan head.Big roasted coffee nose. Coffee is also at the front of the first sip with a little bitter chocolate sweetness coming in at the middle and riding it out to the end. Creamy palate gives this brew a full mouthfeel but the alcohol comes through a little much for only 5.6%.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 4, 2003
2001 vintage. Sweet plum, chocolate and roasted malt in the nose. Deep dark reddish-brown coloring, thin light head with decent lacing. Medium heavy body. Tastes are the same as the aroma, nice chocolate and roasted flavors also some coffee notes as well. I’m quite pleased with this, a must buy!!

2001 vintage, sampled 1/03. I get some soy sauce in the nose, with a hint of chocolate. I expect that this bottle is too young. Dark reddish-brown body, small tan head, lasting with lace. Smooth chocolate flavor. I expect that this would be better with some aging.
