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.

Ratman197 (13266) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2006
0.25l. bottle 1997 vintage from Liquormax poured a nearly opaque reddish black with a small quickly dissapating amber head. Aromas of dark fruit,chocolate, charcoal and some vinous notes. Palate was very thin and watery. Flavors of carmel, charcoal, a hint of bakers chocolate, and a bit of wood with a light lingering bittersweet finish.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2006
From 1pt Bottle, 2004 Vintage. Deep brown pour with a finger of roasted tan head. Milky aromas of light chocolate nougat and browned white toast. Pleasant, but simple. A medium bodied, milky mouthfeel brings out some flavors of three muskateer bar, along with a touch of mild coffee and a smack of maple syrup sweetness. Clean, easy drinking beer - very smooth and creamy, but not a whole lot of flavor. Final smack brings out a hint of grassy hops.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2006
250ml bottle from the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york target=blank>Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Very dark brown in colour, thin tan coloured head, no lacing. The aroma was of a mild roast, lots of licorice, some light sweetness and molasses. The flavour is a bit thin but still holds a medium roast, cold coffee , light chocolate, some dark fruits. Light mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes lingering, light roast. After 9 years in the bottle this still has some life left in it.

Vintage 1997.

[Sampled with Thomas in Söderåsen, Skåne, Sweden.]
Wonderful look and aroma of licorice such as true piratos. One of the most smooth porters I ever have tasted. But the aroma is also weak and the body could be stronger!

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2007
Stong aroma with leather, dried dark fruits and a hint of gunpowder. The taste is a bit short and hollow. Finishes on the sweet side with moderate bitterness. A good porter, but a bit too sweet for me.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Black pour, humongous almond head. Burnt malt aroma. Taste is chocolate malts, roasted malts, a touch of coffee, and a bitter sweet sugary mollasses taste. There is a little chalkiness in there that kinda kills, nothing outstanding but nothing bad.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 27, 2007
0.5L bottle - Pours a relatively opaque black color with smallish light tan head that sticks around for a while. Aroma of toasted malts, bit of vanilla, black cherry, dates. Flavor has chewy malts, notes of caramel and toasted oats, slight roasty hint, with a balanced but slightly sweet finish. Just alright overall.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 22, 2007
50cl bottle from systembolaget. A nice nearly black dark brown with a good dense tan head that dies and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is malty with a little roast, but weak overall. Nice creamy mouthfeel is pretty middle of the road to full, and carbonation is very smooth and balanced. Flavors didn’t wow me by any measure. Malty, caramel sweet with a little roasted character. Slight chocolate and vanilla show up before a short and moderately bitter finish. Hops are mild. A fairly solid beer, but nothing special. From the sound of it, I wish I’d had it ten years ago.

500ml bottle. Aroma: Roasted malt with notes of milk chocolate, coffee, and light smoke. Some dark fruits and light spice. Appearance: Dark brown in color with small walnut highlights. Light beige head was full and foamy with good retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, smoke, anise, and coffee. Dark fruits and a light brandy-ish note. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Surprisingly good. Nice complexity of flavor and really drinkable.
