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.

ElDesmadre (2949) - Mikołów, - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle. Blackish brown with a creamy head. Strong aroma but without a dominant note. All is in equilibrium here - coffee, dark chocolate, plums, port wine, ground cocoa and some sourish-mineral notes. Low ABV for a baltic porter but a remarkably full body. The flavour remains quite subtle, with the oily consistency being skilfully balanced by a sourish note, the roastedness becoming evident only in the aftertaste, where there is a note of ash behind the coffeeish-mineral flavour. Light sweet, light bitter, light sourish, a bit of coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, roasted malt, mineral notes... This beer is all about moderation in its component parts but on the whole it is remarkably sumptuous.

puboflyons (2917) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 22, 2016
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 2014. My 2,900th review but it is listed as a Baltic Porter. Darn. I also wanted to hit my 100th Porter with my 2,900th review! But back to the beer. Dark brown to near black pour with modest tan head. Aroma of dark sweet roasted malts, caramel, and earthy hops that are low profile. Medium to better than medium creamy body. The taste is incredibly sweet, dark, and roasty. Mild bitterness to finish. Hurrah for Swedish Porters!

Jokestereo (276) - SWEDEN - APR 8, 2016
From 1989, pours dark brown with almost no head. Aroma; the years has made it a little vinous, and more towards BW, coffee, resin, dried fruits and figs. Taste; Resin, dried fruits, some figs, a hint of chocolate and coffee in the finish.

PapaVillum (826) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 6, 2016
Sort/brun svensk Baltic Porter med en flygtig moccafarvet skumtop på 2-3 cm. Svinder til kant og overflade. Aroma: Kaffe, chokolade, ristet malt. Lidt fjern engelsk lakrids. Ypperlig aroma! Smagen er umiddelbart dejlig sødlig, let syrlig og bitter i afslutningen. Ganske meget smag ift. indholdet af alkolhol. Masser af ristet malt og chokolade i smagsnoterne. Mellem fyldig krop og ganske blød mundfølelse. Konsistensen er tynd til olieret. Meget velsmagende uden "at vælte dig i gulvet-Porter". 33 cl, flaske, 5.5 % ABV, købt i Systembolaget ved Triangel i Triangel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SB Oskarshamn, flaska. 2015 lite dammsmak men inte arom. Håller stilen. Spritsig. Lite tunn i tonen. Svagt humlad. Men en klassiker.

Very good porter. Flavorful, yet clean and crisp. Underlying roasted malt was complimented nicely with hints of coffee and molasses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
