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.

Tmoney99 (11228) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured a dark brown color with a large creamy brown head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Solid roasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Medium bittersweet roasted flavor with a medium smooth balanced finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer that did meet my expectations.

madsberg (10480) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2005
Bottled 2003 vintage: Dark red/brown coloured.Light brown medium sized head. Buttery, light roasted and coffeish aroma. A little vague for my likings. Chocolate, roast and coffee in the flavour. The roastyness last till the end. The beer is a little dry and insipid. Had it cellered for approx. 1,5 year.
