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.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Pours and looks nice. A bit watery with a faint finish. A Fuller's London Porter mixed half and half with water would still be better than this.

Doftar rostat kaffe och jag tycker mig antyda apelsinkärnor (!). Brygden smeker gommen...Slutsats: En välgjord porter

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2007
Stong aroma with leather, dried dark fruits and a hint of gunpowder. The taste is a bit short and hollow. Finishes on the sweet side with moderate bitterness. A good porter, but a bit too sweet for me.

SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 20, 2002
I poured this from a 2001 batch. Whispers of vanilla coffee and malted milkshake drift up from a creamy beige top. Solid black, I cannot see through this sea of brown ink. A deep roasted nugget with a brief appearance of bitter. This is a very smooth porter. It almost reminds me of a slightly hopped up Schwarzbier. Nice, this is candy bar nice.

Slubgob (181) - West Hartford, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Tap. Opaque black coffee, fine light tan head. Chocolate nose. Full but not heavy on the mouth, lots of chocolate fading to a suggestion of prunes and cocoa and other flashes of flavors I can’t quite define, finishing with more dry chocolate and just a touch of bitterness. Fantastic porter!

Black pour with light brown head. Aromas of mild coffee, toffee and chocolate. Thin body, medium/small palate. Close to no bitterness.

Black, or dark brown, with small tan head. Roasted coffee, bread and hops. Slightly sweet, dry with a dry bitter finish.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2002
2001 version. Pours black with a brown fluffy head that quickly disappates into an espresso like appearance. Nice flavors with coffee, smoke, toffee, licorice and roasted grain flavors prevalent. Strong bitterness up front, which quickly gives way to a nicely balance smooth and semi sweet finish. Slightly heavier than medium body. Yet another great porter almost as good as Anchor (not as sweet), Fullers (not as flavorful), and Sam Smiths Taddy Porter. This is definitely becoming one of my favorite styles.

nellycale (172) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2013
From bottle. Pours a black hur with a flat - very little head. Flavor is outstanding with coffee, caramel, and hints of vanilla. Biggest shortfall is a real lack of carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
