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.

(Bottle) Pours a dark brown with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma of coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and malt. Creamy palate. Flavor reflects the aroma of the beer quite nicely. Good porter!

Rasmus40 (11689) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2011
Black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is rather sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and light bitter finish. Very enjoyable and solid porter. 170309

Leighton (11649) - 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.

argo0 (11593) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2002
Dark beer with good head. Chocolate aroma with hints of roastiness. On taste, this flip-flops, with the roastiness becoming dominant but supplemented by hints of chocolate. Roasty bitter aftertaste. Full bodied, slightly chewy, but smooth. Incidentally, I accidentally served Kathy the top, and me the bottom (i.e., no mixing), of the beer. There was a noticeable difference in flavors, with the ’top’ half tasting less full, and even slightly metallic. This rating is based on re-mixing the two halves.

bhensonb (11389) - 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.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
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.

rlgk (11349) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2003
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...

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Dark brown with a red hue, lasting off-white head. Light toffee aroma with some chocolate, but quite weak. Sweet and toffee filled flavour. Big and soft mouthfeel, and drinkable, yes, but not really exciting. Quite a disappointment to me.

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 Bottle. 2005 vintage @ YNWA, 5,5 %. Pours a slightly black with nutty brown borders. A medium creamy beige head that stays throughout the drinking experience. Mild aroma that is dominated by roasted malts. Mouthfeel is round and creamy. Flavour is mild, and surprisingly fruity with a little liqourice and a lot of roasted malts at the end.
