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.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2006
A Swedish classic (fresh as a daisy bottled in 2006). Appearance: Jet black, with a thick creamy tan head with some rusty spots which thinned out. No noticeable lacing. Aroma: A soft fruit sweetness, a hint of vanilla and a vague suggestion of roasted coffee. Flavour: Mild choco/coffee follows an intial burst of sweetness. Some rust and caramel raisins chucked in for good measure. Palate: Light carbonation, ’lördag godis’ sweetness and a bitter aftertaste so light you almost miss it. Overall: Too sweet for me, and lacking in the burnt ’n’ bitter department. Having said that it’s a decent easy-drinking version and I’m sure with a couple of years under its belt the sweetness will round out and this will improve even more (now have a few bottles in the cellar to prove this theory)

kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2012
2006 from a bottle. Pours rich brown with red highlights and tan head that dissipates quickly. Mild smell, earthy and a bit of coffee. Tastes a bit more fruity than expected. Has the usual coffee and chocolate flavor, but also a bit of apricot, hint of cherry, and some orange peel. Mildly hoppy finish. Served at room temperature, the beer mildly tingles on the tongue and leaves a slightly sticky residue with coffee, dark chocolate, and hoppy notes.

beeranarchist (209) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Aroma is chocolate, mild coffee, caramel and raisins. Good carbonation (not to high), light roasted, bitter finish. Very good without being to heavy.

Impressive beer. Roasty aroma and a sweet chocolate flavor with dark malt accents.

ElManana (205) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2013
Overall I thought this was decent but it was thinner than expected and developed a watery taste at times. The huge roasted flavor and sherry like aroma was very unique and the roasted flavor lasted forever. A nice porter, but not one I’d search for. 1998 bottle.

Flaska systemet - mörk som natten och doftar aningen bränt. Lite försiktigt bränd i smaken med. Lättdrucken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Melker (201) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2013
I drank a really fresh one yesterday (2013) so I have something to compare with when I drink the aged bottles. Dark brown color. Off-white medium head with big bubbles. Aroma of coffee. cocoa.. no complexity. Taste is sweet and just a little bit bitter. Body is pretty thin and it’s heavily carbonated.

Bottle 2001 on label.English Pint glass Pours a thin tan head with notes of alcohol,roast malts and caramel. The beer itself is almost black with amber highlights. The flavor of roasted malt and chocolate balancing the a slight residual sweetness.The body is thin but the carbonation is not that lively so it really goes down smooth.A 5.5% beer that you can cellar.
