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.

The pour is brown in color with a small tan head. Some roast malt, dark fruit, and a hint of coffee come through first on the nose. A bit dusty and oxidized. Quite a lot of dark fruit, especially prunes. The flavor is fairly simple. Some roasted malt, chocolate, and tons of dark fruit.

MiP (15143) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2007
2007 bottle, 5.5%. Roasted aroma. Black colour, small brown head. The flavour is cfeamy and nicely sweet with English liquorice aftertaste. Late malt bitterness. Quite flavourful and well-balanced. Pleasant carbonation. I would probably enjoy it more after a year’s cellaring.

Oakes (14884) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2000
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.

bhensonb (13731) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Bottle from Oak Tree. Argang 2004!!!!! Pours very brown/black with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Aroma of fresh dark fruits. Like fresh fig even. Full bodied with near creamy carbonation. It’s very full of freshish dark fruit flavor. Rounding off with treacle. Not bitter, but not all that sweet. This must be balanced. Good drink. Ages well too.

Pours nice velvety black in glass with good head. Nose has a little mesquite smoke to it. I got some smoke in the flavor as well as light chocolates and coffee. Rated 8/8/2000
