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.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - NOV 7, 2006
Damn, I wish I would have read omhpers review BEFORE I opened this 2004 version. I’d have kept it around another few years, oh well.....too late now. Dark brown/near black very opaque with a creamy tan head. Scent of slightly burnt toast and dark chocolate with a bit of musty basement thrown in. Sweet, slight vegetal with burnt cofee, light alcohol. Lacing leaves a nice pattern on the glass. Not bad but this just didn’t live up to my expectations. Seems as I missed the best years of this beer by about 15 years. Ces’t la vie.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 12, 2006
Pours brown with a ligher brown head. Smells of nuts and sweet malt with some hints of hops. Taste is nutty with some sweet undertones.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2007
50 cl bottle. Dark brown colour with a little weak head. Light roasted aroma with notes of coffee and malt. Also flavour of coffee and smooth roastedness. Ends up light and nice.

DrD (61) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2007
The blackstrap and pumpernickel aroma is the best part of this brew--though the close-to-the-earth, dry, ashcan finish is also nice. A bit of an odd damp-wholegrain-sourdough note (baltic porteresque). Pleasant.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 9, 2007
500 ml bottle (2007). Fingerthick light chocolate head over dark brown/near black body. Moderately sweet malt aroma with notes of mild coffee. Taste is mainly sweet dark malts, some fruitiness; plums, raisins and prunes, and notes of caramel and chocolate. Modest hopbitterness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Noteable bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but quite ordinary, I’ll re-rate when I obtain a vintage bottle...

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2007
A Sim rate (Ølfestival): Opaque black colour. Smells of my tomato sauce. A bit oniony, a bit oily. When you swish it around there is a bit of cherry. Tastes quite sharp and bitter with a fruity raisin finish.

Pours a clear dark brown with a tanned head. Sweet and quite sugary. Some toasted aromas with a malty sweetness. Also some hoppyness towards the end and in the finish. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Mostly just sugary.

JohnC (3004) - 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

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Aroma and flavor of raisins and coffee, which is overpowered by sweetness. Lacks body.
