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.

Very commanding smokiness, almost rauchbier-like. The roasted barley flavor melts into a strange "hammy" character (something I've found a lot in smoked porters but perhaps haven't developed a taste for yet). Rather dark and mostly smooth, except for a touch of bitterness in that hammy flavor I was talking about.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2004 Dark color, almost like coffee. Smells like a cappuchino. A bittertaste that also brings coffee...

A lot of carbonation. This is the louded beer I've ever had, it was like pouring a can of cola. Not bad, but it did taste a bit watered down.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottled, argang 2002, sampled same year. Very dark in colour with thick brown head. Roasty, coffeeish aroma; bitter, roasty and chocolate notes in the palate. My friend (not a beer lover) when tasted it said: "Is this a beer? Is it possible for a beer to taste like this?" Then he went to Systembolaget and bought a bottle of Orval...

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2005
2001 Bottle thanks to Heemer77. Dark, black pour at first, but turns somewhat transluscent with a burgundy gleam to the edges. Little, rapidly disipating tan head. Smells of caramel, milk chocolate, light yeast and just a hint of roast. Flavor is rather simple. Too much smooth, slightly boring, milk chocolate flavor. Has its moments of roast and and coffee, but they are still buttressed by the sweetness and only in passing. Medium to medium full body, but loose at the start and finish. Aftertaste has a nice yeast, light vinous notes and chocolate flavor. Still, much lacking in complexity, tastes rather pasteurised.

Small light tan ring of a head. Dark opaque black body. The aroma is light licorice, baker’s chocolate, and light soy sauce. The flavor is very chocolately but falls flat quickly. Very flat and watery medium full body. Was exepcting more.
