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.

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!

mikkos (292) - 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

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.

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.

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.
