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.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 One of the best vintage beers I ever had was a 1989 Carnegie Porter, aged 11 years. This was the OLD recipe, Klass III version. Absolute masterpiece. This rating is for the new recipe, not aged. That other one was a 5.0.

Amendment: The 1989 is now past its prime. It is still a tasty drop, but no longer a 5.0. Newer vintages tasted - 1999, 2001, 2003 are all thin, lagerish and lousy. Avoid. Numbers are a compilation of recent vintages.

Another amendment. I’m beginning to suspect there is a different Carnegie Porter brewed for the American market as a recent sampling of a 2001 showed a full-bodied beer with ample toast and cocoa.

This is an excellent porter. Nice sweet taste. Would make an excellent after dinner beer.

When I first smelled this and took a sip it really reminding me of Sam Adams triple bock, but without the nasty maple hints and minus the super high alcohol. This was very nice beer. Kinda makes me think that BBC could have a hit if they toned down that triple bock, as I really liked this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2007 courtesy of Domtom; 2005 vintage sampled 2/2007 - very dark ruby-brown, well almost black colour; the little foam doesn’t last for long; fairly toasty with robust notes of cocoa; quite full-bodied, fine effervesence; the sweetness is partially balanced by a tart bitterness; long toasty finish with notes of raisins and cocoa

8-2000, from AB PRIPPS D. CARNEGIE & CO, 1998 vintage 4/7/8/4/15 = 3.8
