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.

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.

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.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2008
2004 Vintage. 16.9 oz. bottle. Pours very dark brown with a moderate, airy tan head that lasted until about mid-glass and left spotty lacing. Light aroma of roasted malt along with a very light metallic aroma. The flavor is weakly roasted malt, chocolate, wet cardboard and stale tobacco. I ended up pouring the last third of the bottle down the drain. This isn’t a horrible beer, I just wasn’t that interested.

Pours nice velvety black in glass with good head. Nose has a little mesquite smoke to it. I got some smoke in the flavor as well as light chocolates and coffee. Rated 8/8/2000

In short: A bland meaty velvety porter. Meh.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed fresh the day after purchase from a Swedish Systembolaget.
The look: Near black body topped by a medium dark beige head.
In long: Nose is roasted, a bit of smoked (wood coal), vegetables, stuff. Taste has the velvety maltiness of and oatmeal, vanilla black cookies, a bit too meaty for my taste, a bit of smoke, notes of milk chocolate, awkward sourdough. I really didn’t care for the meaty flavor in this one. Tasted like a slightly lighter and more meaty version version of Jämtlands Oatmeal Porter, another popular Swedish porter I had the day before. I don’t know what to say here, this beer gets mostly good ratings, I purchased my bottle on location and drank the same day, not sure what the other people are drinking but the bottle I drank was very lame. Anyway, any Swedish reading this who thinks this is a good beer please slap yourself across the face because I can’t reach.

330ml bottle, 2012 edition. Dark brown with a slightly brown tainted thick head. Roasted malt, licorice, dark chocolate. Light body and pretty sweet for a porter, but quite ok.

Vighals (1485) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2014
Svart med rødskjær med høyt tykt skum som ligger helt ut. Lukter såpe, kakao og malt. Rund middels fyldig smak av karamell og malt. Kort, lite kullsyre
