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.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2006
A Swedish classic (fresh as a daisy bottled in 2006). Appearance: Jet black, with a thick creamy tan head with some rusty spots which thinned out. No noticeable lacing. Aroma: A soft fruit sweetness, a hint of vanilla and a vague suggestion of roasted coffee. Flavour: Mild choco/coffee follows an intial burst of sweetness. Some rust and caramel raisins chucked in for good measure. Palate: Light carbonation, ’lördag godis’ sweetness and a bitter aftertaste so light you almost miss it. Overall: Too sweet for me, and lacking in the burnt ’n’ bitter department. Having said that it’s a decent easy-drinking version and I’m sure with a couple of years under its belt the sweetness will round out and this will improve even more (now have a few bottles in the cellar to prove this theory)

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Aroma is chocolate, mild coffee, caramel and raisins. Good carbonation (not to high), light roasted, bitter finish. Very good without being to heavy.

kindacold (213) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2012
2006 from a bottle. Pours rich brown with red highlights and tan head that dissipates quickly. Mild smell, earthy and a bit of coffee. Tastes a bit more fruity than expected. Has the usual coffee and chocolate flavor, but also a bit of apricot, hint of cherry, and some orange peel. Mildly hoppy finish. Served at room temperature, the beer mildly tingles on the tongue and leaves a slightly sticky residue with coffee, dark chocolate, and hoppy notes.

Slubgob (196) - 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!

beerhandy (195) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Bottle 2001 on label.English Pint glass Pours a thin tan head with notes of alcohol,roast malts and caramel. The beer itself is almost black with amber highlights. The flavor of roasted malt and chocolate balancing the a slight residual sweetness.The body is thin but the carbonation is not that lively so it really goes down smooth.A 5.5% beer that you can cellar. Whats not to love

nellycale (192) - 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

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