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.

1996 Bottle. This must of been aged far to long, because there is no way I can picture this beer being in the top 94%. Poured a dark dark brown, fizzled for a few seconds and then laid completely flat. Aromas were of slightly roasted malts, soy sauce, chocolate and raisons. The flavor was bland and watered down, mostly due to the flatness of this beer. But there were nice touches of port wine, slightly nutty chocolate, and weak soy. Mouthfeel was similar to rinsing your mouth out with watered down coffee, without the coffee flavor. This has got to be a bad example of this beer, just looking at the ratings it appears the ’99 vintages and on have far higher ratings.

1997 Bottle (5-2-5-2-10=2.4): Very sweet, yeasty, sherry-like, marzipan aroma. Opaque brown with a swirl and ring of tan head. Sherry, marzipan, mild roasty flavours with some tired malty sweetness. Medium-light body feels a bit watery with very low carbonation. Definitely past it’s prime. Bottle (trade, Nov. 2004). Thanks, goldtwins!
2000 Bottle (6-3-6-3-12=3.0): Nutty, sweet chocolate aroma with a light roastiness. Opaque brown with a decent and lasting cover of tan head. Nutty, roasty, chocolate flavours are all there and are enjoyable if not altogether exciting. Medium body with low-fair carbonation. It was interesting to try these two vintages back to back, but my guess is that this is one beer that’s better savoured when fresh. Bottles enjoyed with Lubiere, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie.

KM (340) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 16, 2007
Bottle, årgang 2007. Dark dark brown body. Moderate creamy head. Aroma like a strong lager. A lot of malt. Heavy sweet malty flavour. A bit too sweet and hints of alcohol. Short and very sweet finish. (Trondheim, 03.04.07)

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2009 Bottle
Dark brown in color no head what s ever. In fact flet and tasted very flat. There as a deep dark malt flavor almost winter beer type. Had lots of great chocolate and coffee flavors. This can be a great beer if I did not get an old bottle.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2008
1997 nip, provided by none of that Kramer himself. Pours totally flat black with brown highlights. Aroma is old, chalky, fishy. Flavor is not much more. No carbonation at all, slightly soured. There is little enjoyable left about this beer. I’ll have to rerate with a fresh sample, eh.

Ernest (6264) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2002
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/nuts, husks), with light notes of tree bark and cardboard. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dull and uninspiring.

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 16, 2007
A very thin and dim color of brown with almost no film formed. The porter was bland with little sweetness and watered down coffee flavor.
