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.

Best before April 2010, drank in April 2002, 16.9 OZ bottle: Perhaps I should get another bottle and cellar it for a few years. It tastes watery and the aftertaste is too sweet.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 1998 edition sampled in 2002: opague super dark brown with swirling tan galaxical wonders...
Coffee nose with roastedness and some cocoa sweetness..
starts good for a second or two of nice creamy sweet coffee but suddenly chooses to show some vegital pooeyness...the vegital notes subside in the finish where the flavor goes back to a more pleasant coffee creaminess with a tad of metalicness...As Jim Carrey says in 'liar liar', I've had better

Not bad. It has a coffee and malt flavor with a bitter after taste. Next bottle I’ll cellar for a while.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Dark brown almost black color with a medium thick head. The aroma is slightly sweet yet spicy and meaty, something like pepperoni(?). The flavor is slightly spicy and malty with coffee undertones and slightly hoppy finish.

2001: Roasted coffee, raw bread and funky grain aroma. Very sweet raisin/prune fruitiness on the palate, a little pastey towards the end. Too sweet at first but actually finishes nicely with a roasted coffee bitterness. Probably needs time to temper the sweetness and soy flavors.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Pours and looks nice. A bit watery with a faint finish. A Fuller's London Porter mixed half and half with water would still be better than this.

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: APR 6, 2004 Deep brown with red. Smoky malt caramel and wheat aroma. Smells "old" like many imports do... I guess it's been on the shelf a bit. Moderate thickness, dull smoke and tobacco flavors with some old coffee and grains. Not doing much for me.

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.

VINTAGE 1986. Lots and lots of raisins. Fullbodied, still. Chocolate and coffe. Well preserved but a bit too hyped. Crispy bacon and burned rubber is also a part of this beer.

Thick head. Very dark beer with only a little hint of deep brown showing when held to light. Hints of chocalate and some caramel in the aroma. Has a nice malty taste with some chocolate aftertaste. Good but not great beer.
