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.

shadey (1959) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Black color with creamy thick tn head. Not much aroma after the initial pour. Palate is smooth and creamy. Not much flavor. Only slight roasiness. Dissapointing.

thebeertourist (4996) - 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?

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2008
[Vintage 2005, sampled in 2006]. Black with a greyish head. Sweet aroma with notes of overipe and dark dried fruits. The flavours are sweet and a bit like basement, but not in a good way.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 9, 2009
bottle bought in Systembolaget - Stockholm. Appearance: dark brown color. Big head, beige color and some lasting. Aroma: Some "closed" aroma. Toast smells, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Flavor: toasty-sweety start. Lamentably, a bit of oxide and rancid notes. Reminiscences of chocolate, figs and coffee. Palate: Medium body and soft carbonation. Remark: Maybe a bad sample, sweet unbalance and some rancid.

Tranquillity (1433) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2006
2006 bottle, sampled 2006. Good beer, but just not my favourite. It’s not thick enough for a baltic stout, with weak aroma. Somehow reminds me of La Trappe Dubbel mixed with water!

mcnally (114) - Burbank, California, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Mild porter. Fantastic look - black with a long lasting, sudsy, tannish head, and great lacing on the glass. Light aroma of some coffee, maybe some licorice. Light to medium body. No carbonation, goes down super easy. Somewhat weak flavor. Some sweetness. Expected more from this one.

nick76 (4297) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2007
Argang 2004. The aroma is like brown sugar and coffee with a touch of rubber, cola, and burnt malt. The appearance is dark brown with a small tan head. The flavor is like the aroma with a touch of chocolate; making this one of the sweetest porters that I have had. Yet, the palate is too thin and the finish is bitter. This is a mixed bag of both good and bad but well worth a try.
