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.

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. I’m not a huge fan but I can see how it’s appreciated.

Bottle shared with Ron. Thanks Ron! After a stellar IS and IIPA, this one underwhelmed. It might not have been its fault. Cidery nose, with cola. Clear, reddish appearance. Palate is thin, malty, sweet. Doesn’t fit the normal Baltic profile.

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle, vintage 2006. Dark brown, almost black with a big light brown head. Roasted coffee aroma, slightly harsh in my opinion. Quite sweet, some alcohol, drier and more bitter finish with roasted flavours appearing. Medium carbonation. Not bad, but I used to think it was great. Was it just my bottle that disappointed?
