COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carnegie Porter brjade bryggas 1836 och r ett av det ldsta svenskbryggda let tillika Sveriges ldsta aktiva varumrke som med decennierna blivit knt ver hela vrlden. 175-rsjubileet firas med en Jubileumsbrygd, signerad av Carlsberg Sveriges bryggmstare Daniel Eriksson och Brooklyn Breweries bryggmstare Garrett Oliver.
Om jag hade varit pizzabagare hade jag beskrivit brygden som extra allt. Till skillnad frn vanlig Carnegie Porter, som r underjst, har vi anvnt bde ver- och underjstkultur till jubileumsbrygden. Det har gjort den vlhumlad, men faten har samtidigt minskat bitterheten och adderat smakerna av vanilj, kokosnt och lite bourbon, sger Daniel Eriksson.
I april anlnde amerikanska bourbonfat till Carlsberg Sveriges bryggeri i Falkenberg. Daniel Eriksson slet hrt tillsammans med Garrett och hans bryggare frn Brooklyn fr att f alla 130 trfat p plats och genomfra tappningen av brygden. Till sin hjlp hade de representanter frn Porters Drinkers Association och medarbetare frn Carlsberg.
Under lagringstiden spelades det musik fr trtunnorna frn en ppen spellista p Spotify dr allmnheten var med och pverkade valet av musik. Det spelades allt frn Cole Porter, Brooklyn-ltar och klassisk musik till reklamltar frn vstkustkompisarna Pripps Bl och Falcon.
Under lagringstiden blev let smakrikare och starkare, frn planerade 6,9 procent till en slutprodukt p 8,8 procent. Om det var ljudvgorna som pverkade lter jag vara osagt, men portern utvecklades fantastiskt bra, sger Daniel Eriksson.

bytemesis (8107) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 18, 2014
A special beer with thanks to _angst_ for the trade! 2011 bottle. Pours reddish deep chestnut, small tan head, good lacing on the glass. Aroma is pretty strong bourbon, toffee, raisins, figs. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter - clear evidence of barrel aging, more like a quad than a porter in some ways. Lightish body and a bit thin, which was a bit of a distractor, but still a good beer.

Deep brown with a reddish hue, no foam. Rich caramel malty aroma with clear hints of barrel aging, some tootsie roll chocolate. Body is very thin, some roast bitter, some sweet chocolate, light bourbon.

JulienHuxley (5772) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle shared with friends at Akkurat. Deep but still Clear black red pour with tenacious lacy foam. Aroma of really really vanilla forward bourbon, tons of bourbon and vanilla, nice sweet smelling bourbon, light molasses notes, a hint of licorice. Taste is sweet, nice boozy bourbon, not too sweet however, nice roastiness as well. Palate is relatively light, pretty dry, nice carbonation. Tasty porter, and although the bourbon aging really dominates this one, it is quite enjoyable.

nimbleprop (8174) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2014
750ml bottle via Winter Secret Santa 2013/14. Pours a nearly opaque black with some bubbly, cream colored head. Nose has licorice, molasses, black pepper, some booze, Kahlua, malt, chocolate, some raisin. Flavor is sweet, raisins, cherries, cola, cream soda, mild vanilla, licorice. Oily finish. Could have aged a bit too far. Could be on the way out.

Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle pours dark brown/black with thin tan head that recedes rapidly. Aroma dark fruits with a little coffee/cocoa and faint bourbon. As others have said theres a touch of oxidation at this point, but still a nice full porter taste with roast malts, cocoa, slight coffee, touch of bourbon. Almost seems like a little oatmeal. Full palate. Finish mainly a continuation of the flavor. Pretty solid BA porter.
