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.

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.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2007
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.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2002
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.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 15, 2003
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.
