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.

Traded for this in 2005, and I’m not sure the "2001" on the label is the bottling date. But at 5.6% abv, it probably should be rated by now. Thick, coffee-liquer nose in the 500 ml bottle. Pours a solid black with a kind of greyish stout-type head. For all its thick smell, though, the actual beer is pretty easy drinking. Slight banana note at first, then a gentle porter with some spices, and a pronounced lager finish. A little more texture and coffee roast toward the bottom, but this never goes beyond its nice quaffability. I suspect this didn’t really need to age this long. And only my third rating from Sweden?

Svart med litet skum. Kaffe, malt med en lätt känsla. Inte så fyllig utan lite för lätt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svart, men litt lys kommer gjennom i kantene. Nesten fraværende skum. Lakris, kaffe og noe kjeks i duften. Lakris og kaffe også i smaken sammen med en fin bitter avslutning. Også litt portvin i avslutningen. Litt tynn avslutning.

stevoj (2875) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from Boise Coop. Right in the wheelhouse for a classic porter. Dark, sweet and malty, pour has nice fluffy head which leaves streaky lacing. Nose is sweet malt, leading into flavors of molasses, peat and sweet malts. Classic porter.

29th May 2015: on-tap as Carlsberg Carnegie Baltic Porter at the Seal Beach Beachwood BBQ bar. Coffee flavoured dark brew with a bitter bite towards the finish. Semi-sweet in the mouth it gets drier and more bitter in the aftertaste. Decent.
