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.

Pours a beautiful dark brown to black color with a tan head and nice lacing around the glass. The aromas are dark fruits with just a hint of earthiness. The flavor is bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Loooove it. The finish is fairly shortlived and makes you think you could drink quite a few of these.

Argang 2004. I always look forward to European porters, and chose this one for my 100th rating, for no other reason than you gotta love a deScription with the word "stark" in it. Really though, nice porter. Has that European bite to it, nice and dark like a porter should be, head is cream colored, not dark brown like some. A bit smoother than Smith’s Taddy porter, another of my favs. Lacing clings to the side, nice full mouthfeel and palate. I’d have this again anytime.

This is an 8.82 oz. bottle bought in Atlanta in 2001. It is the 1998 version and it held up quite well! It has very little carbonation and virtually no head. The aroma is of sweetness, malt, caramel, prunes, and soy sauce. The flavor contains very little hops. It tastes very malty like a chocolate malt (shake). It is dark, sweet, malty, chocolaty, fruity, soy saucy and has a medium body. Overall a nice combination of flavors that developed over a 6 year period.

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!

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

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.
