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.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2004
This is an 8.82 oz. bottle bought in Atlanta in 2001. It is the 1998 version and it held up quite well! It has very little carbonation and virtually no head. The aroma is of sweetness, malt, caramel, prunes, and soy sauce. The flavor contains very little hops. It tastes very malty like a chocolate malt (shake). It is dark, sweet, malty, chocolaty, fruity, soy saucy and has a medium body. Overall a nice combination of flavors that developed over a 6 year period.

K-V-F-L (292) - LaVista, Nebraska, USA - OCT 15, 2001
Very good, and strong for a Scandinavian beer. ’I Have a Dream’ that someone will ’Gimme Gimme Gimme’ one soon. If not, I’ll be sending out an ’S.O.S.’ and will prepare to meet my ’Waterloo’. How Swede it is!

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Dark brown with ruby highlights and generous foamy tan head that crowns the beer. Very subtle nose, nothings jumping right out. Hints of caramel, roast and chocolate, with even a bit of alcohol as it warms, but its all very much in balance. Mild coffee and hint of Burgundy wine, even a bit tannic mouthfeel, but only serves to balance the malt sweetness.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Sampled from bottle dated 2001. Pours a very dark blackened-ruby with a scattered, tan head. Aroma is predominantly roasted malts with some woody/earthy hops and faint notes of ripe fruit. Flavor is perfectly balanced and clean. Caramel, coffee and smoke are present, but not dominant. Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated and incredibly drinkable. Dry finish. This was my first baltic porter, and I’ll be seeking more.

Rballs01 (281) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Wow! Real porters definitly come from over seas. This one is thick and sweet, soo good. Deep dark and black. Nice robust roasted flavor that doesn’t over power your mouth. Toffee sweetness followed by a slight bitterness. Drink it alone and "FEEL THE SWISS"

Like the dark color. Little head. Notes of chocolate. Worth a try.

AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2010
Aroma is small, with coffee, and roasted malts. Taste is much better; coffee, cocoa, chocolate perfectly balanced with some bitterness hops. Aftertaste is like hot chocolate.
