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 500 ml. Pours a very dark opaque brown with ruby highlights and a pretty sizeable diminishing offwhite head. Nose very spicy and fruity, like raisin bread, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, as well as dark fruits, some plum. Very smoky on the palate, a nice lingering oakiness followed by a briny bitterness and some fruitiness in the finish. Hops are understated but very typical of the style, slightly peppery and resiny. Falls short just a bit with the body, while smooth and silky, just a bit thin. Still, quite nice for the style.

Sonicdescent (384) - Donora, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Had this at the Ratebeer Pittsburgh gathering. Pours a nice dark black with little head, but I curve a bit due to the small pour. Smells too sweet, this reminded me of Creme Brulee, the cloyingly sweet beer, not the cloyingly sweet desert dish. Taste, however, is excellent. The sweetness is there, but not overpowering. Mouth is medium in carb and body.

A first rate example of a porter. Nice rich aroma, and a slightly bitter/burnt chocolate flavor. Reasonably smmoth and dry finish.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JUL 6, 2009
2004 version. Smell of smoked woodchips, coffee, toffee, and lots of sweet vanilla. Taste carries more of the same along with some peppery spicy feel on the tongue...nutmeg, cherries, chocolate milk. Mouthfeel was a bit too light; but it went down smooth with a slight dry, boozy finish. Pretty damn good.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Thank you Norm I have had two versions of this beer one was brought back from the land of cross country skis and one with a different ABV was bought at Bottleworks. A little thin but it did contain all the porter characteristics and was enjoyable. Page 107 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 437 out of his 500 Classic Brews to go
