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.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle. Vintage 2004. The colour is opaque black (although the liquid is clear); the large, firm semi-compact foam is brown.

The smell is generous and complex with tones of black coffee, burned malt, sour cream and hints of hops and smoke.

The carbonation is very fresh, but at the same time very soft.

The taste is also complex with a somewhat smoked start. There is a large and creamy body that develops into a passing almost metallic bitterness that is replaced with a soft sweet flavour of coffee and dark chocolate. The harmonic aftertaste got a creamy burned taste with some hints of bitter hops.

This is clearly a session beer that one should take some time to experience. I cannot really grasp how the large brewery of Carlsberg Sverige can produce such a unique and fine beer.

Great stuff, that makes me a little proud beeing a Swede.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2002
Big head that dissipates quickly. Rich, chocolatey aroma. Deep color that allows light through, making it a deep, ruddy amber. Roasted coffee flavor with a rich, balanced complexity. A bit herbal in the start with a pleasantly bitter finish. Be sure you pour this one evenly, especially if you are sharing. The flavor settles in the bottom.

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

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Pours dark brown almost black with small off white head. THe aroma has hints of toasted malt. The taste had a slightly unexpected taste I could not place. We had three bottles at the tasting and they all had it. Not sure what it was but it made it stand out against the other porters tried. It wasn’t bad just different.

Melker (232) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2013
I drank a really fresh one yesterday (2013) so I have something to compare with when I drink the aged bottles. Dark brown color. Off-white medium head with big bubbles. Aroma of coffee. cocoa.. no complexity. Taste is sweet and just a little bit bitter. Body is pretty thin and it’s heavily carbonated.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle 2001 Robust Porter, rich and malty, slightly smokey. Strong taste and smell of alcohol. I think many of the complexities of this beer have mellowed with age leaving this beer quite quaffable but not top-notch. Slightly astringent.
