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.

2006 Bottle. Thanks GodofThunder. Dark brown with a little red in there. Head is beige. Good but light roasted malty goodness in the smell. The molasses taste mixed with light chocolate. I like this one, kinda sweet though.

Flaska från SB. Svart med beige skum. Kraftig chokladdoft. Söt chokladsmak, lite dåligt bett.

Vintage 2004, sampled in 2008. Carnegie Stark Porter is a fantastic beer. It has an almost black color and a creamy/chocolaty colored head. The flavor is very sweet with traces of raisins and chocolate and the aroma compliments the flavor perfectly. With a nice smooth finish, fantastic taste, deep color and stimulating aroma, this is a great porter.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - OCT 12, 2006
Chocolate and honey porter with little to no coffee or caramel flavors. Almost no carbonation and a tad light in the palate. Tad sweet and lightly roasted with a bittersweet finish. Or maybe astringent an oily too. Not quite the best but a decent porter.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Vintage 2007 bottle, rated Dec ’10. Pours dark brown with a ruby touch, close to black, with a light brown head. Medium nose with roasted malts, sweet caramel, coffee, chocolate alcohol and a slight acidity. The mouth have more of the above, but with a touch plums, pruns, coca-cola and a slight peatyness in the end. Quite thin mouthfeel and the alcohol comes through more than expected, but is still not intruding. A solid porter.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - MAY 21, 2005
2004 vintage. Exceptional porter. No real head retention, but not necessary. True to style color, deep garnet bordering on brown. A sweet malt starts off on the palate and seeps into the taste buds and quietly fads away until it picks back up as it is swallowed. It you can find this beer it is worth whatever it’s priced at.

2002 bottle. Black with a brown head that disappears quickly. Fruity and smokey flavors with lots of chocolat and coffee in it.
