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.

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.

furthur (332) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Believe this to be the same beer, label slightly different, "klassIII", 2013. Not quite opaque brown, cream head fades. Aroma lager, toasty, raisin. Taste nutty, raisin, rootbeer, brewed coffee. Slightly sweet in the middle. Palate about right, that is, not thin, but not imperial thick either. Carbonation soft and fine. This is excellent. Putting the taste back in lager!

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.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2005
(My bottle says "Argang 2001.") Head dissipated within one minute. Nutty, complex nutty, coffee, and sweet licorice flaovors. I’ll try this again.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 D. Carnegie & Co. Stark Porter Pint bottle Argang 2004, absorbed 09/06 Medium pour in an English pint glass. Poured black with hints of deep mahogony, with a small mostly diminishing creamy light brown head. Smelt of very faint molasses, raisins and roastiness. Taste was upfront medium rich sweet molasses and raisins, and light lactose sourness followed by a moderate rustic moldy earthy finish accompanied by moderate roast, with light lactic sourness, dark berries, and caramel character. Mouthfeel was medium, oily, overly fizzy, and slightly astringent. Overall, a baltic porter with a closed up aroma and flavor. Way better warm. Could improve with age. 4/3/7/3/13 D. Carnegie & Co. Stark Porter 8.82 Fl Oz bottle (size?) Argang 1997, absorbed 09/06 Medium pour in a tulip glass. Poured black with some faint brown highlights. Absolutely no head or carbonation. Smelt of strong molasses, raisins, smoke, roasted grain, moderate vinous alcoholic qualities. Taste was upfront strong bitter stale bread, cardboard, and cobwebs with light molasses and dried plum sweetness followed by a moderate bitter cobwebs, tar, hazelnut and yeast bitterness and light molasses sweetness on a light moderate length finish. Palate was light to medium bodied, oily to a dry finish, barely any carbonation, just a slight tingle on the palate, and lightly astringent. Overall, it definitely tastes old. It’s very interesting how it developed, although there is definitely a stale bread flavor. It aged nicely and is very interesting to try, with very subdued, balanced and intriguing new flavors. Past its prime though. Still enjoyable. 6/2/7/3/13
