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.

ONe of the best Poreters I've had to date. Excellent appearance..Aroma was exceptional with its abundance of chocolate and coffee. Flavor was wonderfully done in this one strong chocolate upfront that was nicely balanced by the coffe bitterness later on.

mikkos (262) - FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Almost black cola colored beer wit a small head. Aroma is sweet dark malts, smokey, some rye bread and sweet ripe plums. Taste is on the sweet side with coffee, dark malts, ripe fruitiness. Smooth mouthfeel and bitter smooth finish. Lacks the final touch, yet a very enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle. Vintage 2004. The colour is opaque black (although the liquid is clear); the large, firm semi-compact foam is brown.

The smell is generous and complex with tones of black coffee, burned malt, sour cream and hints of hops and smoke.

The carbonation is very fresh, but at the same time very soft.

The taste is also complex with a somewhat smoked start. There is a large and creamy body that develops into a passing almost metallic bitterness that is replaced with a soft sweet flavour of coffee and dark chocolate. The harmonic aftertaste got a creamy burned taste with some hints of bitter hops.

This is clearly a session beer that one should take some time to experience. I cannot really grasp how the large brewery of Carlsberg Sverige can produce such a unique and fine beer.

Great stuff, that makes me a little proud beeing a Swede.

Big head that dissipates quickly. Rich, chocolatey aroma. Deep color that allows light through, making it a deep, ruddy amber. Roasted coffee flavor with a rich, balanced complexity. A bit herbal in the start with a pleasantly bitter finish. Be sure you pour this one evenly, especially if you are sharing. The flavor settles in the bottom.
