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.

Pours dark brown almost black with small off white head. THe aroma has hints of toasted malt. The taste had a slightly unexpected taste I could not place. We had three bottles at the tasting and they all had it. Not sure what it was but it made it stand out against the other porters tried. It wasn’t bad just different.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle 2001 Robust Porter, rich and malty, slightly smokey. Strong taste and smell of alcohol. I think many of the complexities of this beer have mellowed with age leaving this beer quite quaffable but not top-notch. Slightly astringent.

Beerandhockey8 (228) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 5, 2014
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep amber that’s nearly black with a thick tan head, lots of lacing. Nose is coffee, roasted malt. Taste is very sweet, medium bodied, some hop bitterness balancing this out. Finishes so silky with a great after taste. Awesome porter

Mette (224) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
Flaske årgang 99 på "enken". Sort men med et sjovt rødligt skær når man holder den op mod de levende lys. Den har en sjov duft af nyslået græsplæne. Aner ikke hvor jeg fik det fra. Sødlig alkohol, kakaomælk og fløde. Har en tør og støvet smag og noget bitter chokolade.

GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2004
bottle. dark with a thin tan head... i was expecting a little more. a little bit of a watery moutful. grapes/wine notes mixed into the smokey aroma... flavors a little bland... decent, but not my favorite that i’ve tried in this style

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2003
freakin' tasty sweet chocolatey smooth goodness that leaves a nice lingering presence in the mouth that keeps begging you to take another sip ASAP. too bad it costs 5 freakin' bucks for a 16oz bottle.

Sassy (217) - Mullet Capital of the World, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Aroma and flavor of raisins and coffee, which is overpowered by sweetness. Lacks body.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2008
Very dark syrupy brown color with small but lacy beige head. Aroma is roasty malty, not hoppy at all and a bit alcoholic. Flavor is roasty malty and slightly chocolatey with kind of bitter finish. Overall quite mild, though. Palate is medium-bodied, oily and very low carbonated. Pleasant Porter but is missing some character.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 10, 2010
Dark brown body, light brown head. Coffee roasted, chocolate sweet malt. Wood and licorice notes, touch of dried fruits. Sticky flavor. Light bitter. Low carbonation. Smooth texture. Sticky and sweet aftertaste.
