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.

Supposed to be consumed at room temperature. It just didn’t do it for me. Cool bottle, tho.

1997 vintage (argang). Aroma of chocolate cake - and that ain’t bad. Almost completely flat, no head at all, just a mild hint of carbonation. Deep coffee-brown colr. Black pepper, then dark chocolate, a bit watery as the flavor fades. Medium body, oily and round. Some woodiness. and moderate dryness. Very nice for this odd style.. I believe this one was too old and had lost some depth.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Nearly black pour. Pretty roasty in the nose, coffee, burnt toast. Tastes of the same, with maybe some slight dark chocolate and molasses. Enough hops to even it out. Another very good Scandanavian porter, albeit a little different.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 9, 2009
bottle bought in Systembolaget - Stockholm. Appearance: dark brown color. Big head, beige color and some lasting. Aroma: Some "closed" aroma. Toast smells, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Flavor: toasty-sweety start. Lamentably, a bit of oxide and rancid notes. Reminiscences of chocolate, figs and coffee. Palate: Medium body and soft carbonation. Remark: Maybe a bad sample, sweet unbalance and some rancid.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2008 Great porter. Not quite nail the toasty, buttery maple/carmel malt characteristic found in a Fuller’s or a Koff, but it comes close. Hops is somewhat more prevalent here and the carbonation is noticeable. Nice beer.

DavidWoodruff (433) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Deep dark brown with reddish tint. Thick lush tan head. Aroma of cocoa and dark dried fruit - a hint of something tropical. Flavor has a backdrop of roasted dark malts with molasses and raisin in the fore. Has a very silky texture. Hops only play a part in keeping this beer from being overly sweet. Excellent baltic porter - even with just 5.5 abv.

Excellent Porter. Certinaly a landmark historically for the style. Vintage 2000:

Rich teak and dusty scarlet sit beneath a layered and lacy toape head. Beautiful aesthetically. Nose : Mostly butterscotch or caramel . This fades into a "hot" dark roasted note with cherries, licorice, and perhaps a hint of chicory. Butterscotch dominates. Flavors: Caramel fades into a butteriness that isn’t diacetyl but simply the complexity of a smooth yeast next to a nicely roasted grain. This fades into a dry bitterness reminiscent of all good dry stouts or porters. However above the bitterness lies a distinct black olive, brown sugar sweetness that is immaculate. Naturally carbonated. The carbonation certainly caps all of this off leaving the mouth dry and bitter and sweet towards the edges of the palate. Excellent ale. Reminds me of Anchor Porter. G-rat

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Ar: Sweet brown sugar, plum, treacle, and sherry. Ap: Deep brown, clear - medium very light tan head with fair retention, leaving a thin trail of lacing. T: Lots of caramel and brown sugar up front - robust malt sweetness, with pineapple and candy apple - bitterness is medium-low, with a mossy and herbal character - some mild sherry notes - cocoa, nougat, and dark caramel on the finish. P: Full body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: This is a delicious baltic porter - reminds me of a sweeter, but less roasty, version of Koff - it has a ton of flavor, body, and complexity for its relatively low 5.5% abv - great!

1997...poureed black with minimal head. The aroma was strong with oxidated scotch, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor was quite rich with roasted malt and burnt chocolate. Body was rather light.
