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.

Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 6, 2014
Flaske årgang 2013 fra systembolaget, Malmø, og delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivitetsdag i april: brunsvart med beige filmskum. Rik aroma og smak av kaffe, sjokolade og vanilje i skjønn forening, tørr og lekker. Smud! Denne må kjøpes igjen og igjen. En eksemplarisk porter.

NordicV (1003) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2014
Årgång 2013. Mörkt brun, nästan svart öl med ett beige/ljusbrunt kompakt skum. Doft av kaffe, rostad malt och en del choklad. Smaken innehåller även en del mörka bär, kola och rostade hasselnötter. Mycket bra för sin relativt låga alkoholhalt.

Beerandhockey8 (196) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 5, 2014
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep amber that’s nearly black with a thick tan head, lots of lacing. Nose is coffee, roasted malt. Taste is very sweet, medium bodied, some hop bitterness balancing this out. Finishes so silky with a great after taste. Awesome porter

beer_est_deus (505) - örebro, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Klar, mörk brun-röd nästan svart med brunt skum. Doft: Kaffe, rostade toner, trä, jord, gräs, lite lager, hårt rostade nötter, svagt av torkad frukt. Smak: Kola, bland frukt, delikat kanderat socker, alkofri päron cider?, kaffe, apelsin skal. Svårt att säga exakt vad det finns för smaker men balanserat och delikat är den. Rund och fin. Minns inte att den var så god faktiskt.

monk191 (727) - California, USA - MAR 28, 2014
A very nice Baltic porter. Pours a deep black with a thin grey head. Smells of vanilla and a bit of chocolate. Taste had a lot of dark chocolate and cream, like a root beer float. Sweet finish. Had in the bottle at Trick Dog.
