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.

I drank a really fresh one yesterday (2013) so I have something to compare with when I drink the aged bottles. Dark brown color. Off-white medium head with big bubbles. Aroma of coffee. cocoa.. no complexity. Taste is sweet and just a little bit bitter. Body is pretty thin and it’s heavily carbonated.

stevoj (2835) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from Boise Coop. Right in the wheelhouse for a classic porter. Dark, sweet and malty, pour has nice fluffy head which leaves streaky lacing. Nose is sweet malt, leading into flavors of molasses, peat and sweet malts. Classic porter.

BlackHaddock (4875) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
29th May 2015: on-tap as Carlsberg Carnegie Baltic Porter at the Seal Beach Beachwood BBQ bar. Coffee flavoured dark brew with a bitter bite towards the finish. Semi-sweet in the mouth it gets drier and more bitter in the aftertaste. Decent.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 25, 2015
Malty, nutty coffee aroma. Very dark but nearly clear brown. Sweet caramel and toffee, ash and burnt sugar tastes. Creamy feel although on the thin side for a porter. Great overall drinker now available in these parts .

Sekemoto (20) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours dark brown/black with no head. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. The flavour of roasted coffee, vanilla, chocolate and a touch of alcohol was creamy but too thin and a little flat.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2015
33cL bottle from Wilbur’s, bottle just says porter. Appearance: slight light brown head that does not last, dark amber to brown color, clear, light lacing. Aroma: nutty, molasses, chocolate, very light floral hops, caramel. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, slightly dry finish, cloying sweetness. Taste: sweet molasses with chocolate sweetness, into a light floral hoppiness, but finishishes with the molasses sweetness. Overall, pretty good, nothing amazing though.
