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.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Almost black in color. Enjoyable. I really liked this beer. It has a great aroma. Its malty and roasty. It has a nice thick body. Its pours with a nice full head.

Thick and rich and chewy and chocolatey and creamy and coffee-filled and a very nice, full-bodied porter indeed. The aroma is mildly coffee and cream, and the finish is perfectly smooth. One of the best porters I've had in a long time.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 26, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 Bottled 2001. Pour black with little head. Had a nutty roasted aroma with some hint of chocolate, coffee, and fig. Definately feels like milk on the palate. Has a sweet fruity taste including plums, prunes, and fig. This brew is more sweet than most porters. I have got to say that this is one good porter. I enjoyed this bad boy more as it got warmer. Thanks to Landseer for this 2nd tasting! Re-rate: Aroma is chocolate, coffee, nuts, carmel, and some cherry. All the aromas are in proportion to each other with none dominating. The cherry is slight however. Flavor is chocolate, nutty, carmel, and has a velvet milk texture.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
A definitive ebony hue. Good, crackling tan head. As Fred Eckhart recommends, put this one to your ear and listen! Aroma is a blast of espresso, cocoa, anise and molasses. Rich and roasted, with loads of bitterness on the palate and a tenacious finish. Complex, if a bit gritty. Not a brew for novices or girly-men, this is stiff and substantial stuff. Label says best before August 2O1O, but who could wait that long? Unfortunately, the brewery has become bereft of their senses and is discontinuing this classic, so grab one if you can.

Dark brown almost black colour with a thick tan lacy head. Nose of dark fruits, dark chocolate, wood and hints of madeira wine. roasty sweety and nutty taste.

Well rounded porter with more dark fruit notes than I expected. Nice medium body, though not as full a head nor as much lacing. Fantastic aroma, rich and malty

Had this beer on a few occassions, always bottled. Bought the first one in Warrensburg MO is was blown away by the typically Baltic nature of this porter. A surprising amount of hops, a smooth body, rich with coffee and chocolate. One of my favorites.

Underrated beer in my opinion. . .wonderfully full fruity aroma. Nicely roasted, creamy with some sweet syrup (melted caramel or maple), balanced with bitter notes and some coffee. I really enjoyed this one!

2001 vintage. Sweet plum, chocolate and roasted malt in the nose. Deep dark reddish-brown coloring, thin light head with decent lacing. Medium heavy body. Tastes are the same as the aroma, nice chocolate and roasted flavors also some coffee notes as well. I’m quite pleased with this, a must buy!!
