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.

Very mild bitterness and a faint coffee flavor. Overall all it seems very balanced. It’s easy to see how this made Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews.

HIGHB4LL (791) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2015
33cL bottle from Wilbur’s, bottle just says porter. Appearance: slight light brown head that does not last, dark amber to brown color, clear, light lacing. Aroma: nutty, molasses, chocolate, very light floral hops, caramel. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, slightly dry finish, cloying sweetness. Taste: sweet molasses with chocolate sweetness, into a light floral hoppiness, but finishishes with the molasses sweetness. Overall, pretty good, nothing amazing though.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a dark brown color with two fingers of a cream colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sweeter molasses and caramel smell along with some other nice roasty notes. Along with these smells comes some darker fruit aromas of prune and plum as well as some other aromas of chocolate and a little bit of a grainy smell. Taste – The taste begins with a smooth and sweet taste with lots of caramel and chocolate mixed with a little bit of a dark fruit flavors of plum and prune. Other notes of a roasted malt taste are also present upfront, creating a nice smooth base flavor for the brew. As the taste advances the fruit fades a little bit all while more and more caramel and chocolate as well as some molasses comes to the tongue. With a hint of vanilla and a tiny bit of an herbal flavor coming at the very end, one is left with a sweet and smooth, roasty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the porter style and the darker but sweet flavors of the brew, the feel is rather nice and makes for a flavorful, but easy drinking porter overall. Overall – This is a very nice easy drinking porter at of only 5.5 %. A quite tasty brew overall and one to try if you have the opportunity.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Opaque black/brown with a solid beige head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is roasted malt that turns toward bitter in the swallow, returning to a semi-sweet in a lingering finish. True to it’s dark malt, a solid, smooth, great drinking brew. Recommended.
