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 (11910) - 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.

Christian (11786) - 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.

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.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 500ml bottle (Systembolaget) - (6:4:8:3:14=3.5) - Gift from MiP - thanks!
Very dark brown, large but brief frothy head. Sweet aroma, a little sickly, some nuttiness but also plasticky. Sickly sweet body too, soft carbonation, a little watery in places. Sweet plasticky roasted malts in the taste too. A decent burnt body - some chocolate. Subtle hoppy taste builds up and stays for the finish, along with the more astringent burnt corners of the taste.
Rerate: 330ml bottle - Argang 2009, BB2011-09, drunk 2013-10 (7:4:7:4:14=3.6)
Black, loose tan head. Initially a port-winey or even madeira-like raisiny aroma. Heavier dark fruits like prunes too. Clearly aged. Lovely raisiny retronasals, later some aged yeasiness, marmite. Quite thin palate, carbonation low. Taste is a little dry and has some papery hop aspects. Gentle ashiness, no way hear as aggressive as it was previously. Gentle vanilla creaminess to the retronalsals later. What might be called excessive aging has workjed very well for this. Somewhere between the two extremes might be optimal.
