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.

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2007
Stong aroma with leather, dried dark fruits and a hint of gunpowder. The taste is a bit short and hollow. Finishes on the sweet side with moderate bitterness. A good porter, but a bit too sweet for me.

WilleLW (177) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2012
Nice black colour with a tan head 1,5 fingers high. Aroma of roasted malt and a chocolatey/coffee hint. Taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate. Sticky carbonation. Nice beer.

Black pour with light brown head. Aromas of mild coffee, toffee and chocolate. Thin body, medium/small palate. Close to no bitterness.

2001 version. Pours black with a brown fluffy head that quickly disappates into an espresso like appearance. Nice flavors with coffee, smoke, toffee, licorice and roasted grain flavors prevalent. Strong bitterness up front, which quickly gives way to a nicely balance smooth and semi sweet finish. Slightly heavier than medium body. Yet another great porter almost as good as Anchor (not as sweet), Fullers (not as flavorful), and Sam Smiths Taddy Porter. This is definitely becoming one of my favorite styles.

What a different porter! A little lighter in color than I expected and the flavor-coffee-coffee-coffee!A great beer for breakfast.Not really full and rich but very flavorful. Worth a try.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Poured a dark brown with ruby highlights (clear when backlit). Thin tan head that was short lived. Aroma of roasted malt, coffe, and chocolate. Flavor of sweet malt, coffee, light chocolate, bread, and roastiness. A touch of vanilla, almond, and butterscotch combine to give a creamy, nuttiness in the backend. Light acicidity, moderate bitterness. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Full flavor, but the palate was a little thin considering all the flavor.

treadyroc (149) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Aroma for this bottle really not outstanding - metallic, toasted malt smell. Pours black with a thin tan head that dissipates quite quickly, leaving a thin ring around edge of glass. Roasted malty,smoky flavor from beginning to end, but doesn’t finish entirely cleanly.

xibalba89 (147) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Had a bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has lots of hops, without the heaviness of a lot of porters. The flavor was pretty standard, though... lots of dark malts and bitter hops. Pretty good beer, though not too unique for the style.

Got this in a brown 16.0 oz bottle with a yellow label. Marked to drink before 2010, and since this is 2003 and this bottle was filled ostensibly in 2001, this must be expected to age well. Aroma is complex and wonderful. I detect raisons, molasses and burnt honey. The pour is deep black with maybe just a hint of red highlights. It is rich and oily looking, displaying a wispy, beige head. Good lace grabs the glass. Lots of sugars here, apparently. Tastes teriffic. Lots going on here, including that molasses, and a little cocoa mixed with a kind of charcoal flavor. Expresso flavors as well, and dates, followed ever so subtly by a hop balance which just melds with the malt. Finish is slightly sweet, but not cloyingly so. One of the finest porters I have had.
