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.

Bottle as Porter Klass III. Black, thick brown head with fair retention and slid lacing. Aroma of concentrated milk chocolate. Taste is smooth Hershey’s syrup. Taste is strong coffee with a tad of cocoa. Impressive for a 5% beer..

fiulijn (19369) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2002
[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.

Leighton (18720) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle shared with Alice and Sander, NYC. Pours black-brown with a foamy, beige head. Some burnt dark sugar in the nose, a bit of smokey malts. Medium sweet flavor, some firewood, dark sugars, mild chocolate, some odd grass/plastic. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Modest roast and burnt grass and plastic and licorice. Kind of weird. Not altogether bad, but certainly different.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 060902: Changed my rating. Had a bottle from 2004, stored for 2 years. Still black with a brownish head. This beer really grows with time. Wonderful soft malty chocolate aroma, even better flavor, chocolate, mailky and with a perfect palate. Very, very good. I recommend everyone to but a lot of bottles and then store them... Also, without adding it to my rating, I just loved the 1986 verision of this beer that was sold at the Stockholm Beer Festival 2004...

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Very deep ruby/brown with lasting fawn head. Aroma that has some latte coffee. Body is fairly firm. No great hop presence, but that’s no detriment to what is a pretty solid dark beer. Nice milk choc and milky coffee in mouth, carbonation makes finish a little thin. Decent quaffing beer that becomes a little sickly as it goes down.

Day 2 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, Cafe Abseits Tasting bottle (2010 vintage) thanks to Andy Snow, 25/01/14. Extremely dark mahogony brown with a big old tan covering. Nose is dark toffee, light smoke, light cardboard, earthy. Taste comprises roasted malts, dark toffee notes, cooca, burnt sugar, earthy, lightly oxidised pangs. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. So so porter.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 Bottled, June-05. A beautiful-looking, dark, reddish-brown, almost black, with a nice, dense tan head. The aroma is mild, with roastiness, coffee, some hops and a sweetness. The flavor has the same elements, but very low on the hops. A little sourness comes through after some sips. Mellow mouthfeel. Dry, bitter finish. Guess this beer explains why there is a Porter Drinkers Association in Sweden. Rating: 8-5-8-4-15-4. 060430

Bottle, 2010. A clear-looking dark brown to black beer with a small, firm tan head. Roasted nose with some alcohol, chocolate and coffee. Slightly vegetal. Maybe it needs some cellaring, I was not very impressed by this one, neither aroma nor flavor. It’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated too. Coffee, dried dark fruits, hoppy bitterness, roasted malts and some vegetal hints. A beer that I definitely like, but I suspect it’s victim of the beer revolution. 110122
