2006 Bottle. Thanks GodofThunder. Dark brown with a little red in there. Head is beige. Good but light roasted malty goodness in the smell. The molasses taste mixed with light chocolate. I like this one, kinda sweet though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vintage 2004, sampled in 2008. Carnegie Stark Porter is a fantastic beer. It has an almost black color and a creamy/chocolaty colored head. The flavor is very sweet with traces of raisins and chocolate and the aroma compliments the flavor perfectly. With a nice smooth finish, fantastic taste, deep color and stimulating aroma, this is a great porter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chocolate and honey porter with little to no coffee or caramel flavors. Almost no carbonation and a tad light in the palate. Tad sweet and lightly roasted with a bittersweet finish. Or maybe astringent an oily too. Not quite the best but a decent porter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep amber that’s nearly black with a thick tan head, lots of lacing. Nose is coffee, roasted malt. Taste is very sweet, medium bodied, some hop bitterness balancing this out. Finishes so silky with a great after taste. Awesome porter

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2007 bottle, rated Dec ’10. Pours dark brown with a ruby touch, close to black, with a light brown head. Medium nose with roasted malts, sweet caramel, coffee, chocolate alcohol and a slight acidity. The mouth have more of the above, but with a touch plums, pruns, coca-cola and a slight peatyness in the end. Quite thin mouthfeel and the alcohol comes through more than expected, but is still not intruding. A solid porter.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2004 vintage. Exceptional porter. No real head retention, but not necessary. True to style color, deep garnet bordering on brown. A sweet malt starts off on the palate and seeps into the taste buds and quietly fads away until it picks back up as it is swallowed. It you can find this beer it is worth whatever it’s priced at.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(My bottle says "Argang 2001.") Head dissipated within one minute. Nutty, complex nutty, coffee, and sweet licorice flaovors. I’ll try this again.
