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.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 6, 2003
brownish black, but remarkably light in body. I think I'll lay down a bottle for a couple of years, as others have suggested

Aroma and flavor of raisins and coffee, which is overpowered by sweetness. Lacks body.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - FEB 9, 2005
pours a very dark dark brown color with a small head. aroma is roasted, sweetness with a bit of sourness and soy sauce. flavor is lots of roasted chocolate but is kind of flat all the way through. body is flat. while not bad, it is sort of just there.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Bottle via oh6gdx (thanks!). Pours dark brown with a large tan head.Not much aroma, just some malts. Smells like a pale lager trying to be a porter. Taste is bland. Weak, thin body. Dissappointing.

ekstedt (5215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 Bottle. Dark brown, almost opaque, with a large, beige, head. Sweet maltiness mixes with a heavy, earthy dry roastiness, with hints of dark chocolate. Heavy bodied and quite smooth. In the flavour, the malt sweetness feels a bit one-dimensional, but is - at least partly - balanced by a very dry finish.

Bottle. Dark brown colour with a light brown head. Grassy aroma with coffee. Light roasted flavour with coffee & malt. A bit thin.
