COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
One of Michael Jacksonís 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.

brownish black, but remarkably light in body. I think I'll lay down a bottle for a couple of years, as others have suggested

Sassy (217) - Mullet Capital of the World, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Aroma and flavor of raisins and coffee, which is overpowered by sweetness. Lacks body.

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.

beastiefan2k (2359) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2008
1997. This 8.82oz nip pours a completely dead, thin-looking, pure black. And no matter how hard I swirl in this large snifter, I get absolutely nothing. Aroma is aged with stale-bread roastiness, a good amount of cardboard , and some old tobacco. Taste has really gone downhill, well actual itís almost lost itís taste. comes off as just like watered down three day old tea with a drop of earth. Really disappointing. Itís a completely water-y mouthfeel, too light and no substance. The only reason I add this aged rating is this bottle has been rather well kept and this is not the first time I have had a similarly aged Carnegie and itís always been bad. And yet it still always shows up. I mean this is a completely filtered beer, there is absolutely nothing left over in the bottle, no sediment at all. The score for this bottle is 6/2/5/2/11. Oh yeah, I could not finish this.
The total score is bumped up to represent a fresh Carneige, which is a damn fine porter, lets say around 7/3/7/3/15

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2009
2006 bottle enjoyed 11.27.09. Pours near black with a slight red hue, thin but creamy frothy cream colored head. Aroma is sweet rich and grassy, smooth rich chocolate malt oxidation, hay, some buttery fullness, fairly English, faintest hint of fruitiness, cookie dough. Flavor is fairly fruity, oily, grassy, some bitter chocolate finishing with coffee, fair amount of diacetyl, sweet, rich. fruity. Medium bodied but thin feeling, oily with chunky bubbly carbonation.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle @ home. Black appearance with a brown head. Toasty, slightly roasty, chocolate malty, slightly smoky nose. Fairly thin flavor. Slightly smoky wood, somewhat burnt flavor. Again a somewhat light flavor and somewhat watery. Roasty, slightly burnt aftertaste. Iím not a huge fan but I can see how itís appreciated.
