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.

Tmoney99 (14100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle 750 ml Dr Silverworm. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate woody bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex dark sweet bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish that was long lasting with a small alcohol bite. Standout well balanced barrel brew.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a translucent dark brown with light beige head that steadily that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, oak, and bourbon. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust. Solid on the palate; a bit thinner than Id prefer though. Good beer.

750ml bottle, from Dutchs. Shared with a couple local raters. Very dark brown color, mostly clear, slight red hues on the edges. Thin off-white head, some ropes of lace. Holy moly, the nose on this! Did not expect it to be barrel aged, you get the bourbon barrel up front in the nose pretty quickly. Awesome cookie dough, brown sugar, good vanilla. Milk chocolate. Very nice barrel aroma. Medium-bigger body, smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Some decent chewiness to it. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, dry finish. Hides alcohol reasonably well. Very nice complex aromatic finish, lots of good balanced barrel notes that play well with the light porter aromas... Awesome chewy vanilla bourbon toasty bitter dark chocolate aftertaste... Just a very mild hint of oxidization, maybe (some light dry papery cardboard in the finish I think), but its very mild. Super tasty, impressive stuff. No burn at all.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Bottle (750 ml). Shared by cparles, thanks Chris! Dark brown with a medium beige head and some lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, light bourbon and some dark fruits. Taste is very similar to the aroma with a little more caramel and less bourbon. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A bit straigtforward, but not bad. Balance is good. Decent. 7-3-7-3-14. EDIT: Had this one again at Akkurat. Shared by a very nice local customer. Way better than last time I had it. More depth in both the aroma and taste. Bourbon was still quite present. It held up really well. Very good bourbon barrel-aged Porter. Nice balance.
