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.

Thanks to Sebletitje! 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II Pours a dark brown color with orange highlights and a smallish tan head. The smell is coconut, licorice, caramel malt. The taste is vanilla, caramel malt, coconut and some dark fruit flavors - it ends dry with a bit of char. Medium body with nice carbonation and fine structure. Very nice stuff!

75cl via trade, Thanks to rlgk - Ronny. BB 16-08-2013. Brune fonce, col crmeux blanc cass, le tout laissant un lger filament dor sur le verre. Arme est malt, caramel avec un bouquet moka-chocolat somptueux le tout tirant sur un lger biscuit. Le tout garde un ct fruit en balance, ces derniers rappelant des fruits noirs. Le tout est relev par une petite pointe de douceur - vanille. Palais est assez doux avec un caramel prenant, malt chocolat approchant du chocolat au lait et ce profil cara-ple trs europen. Le tout est relev par un biscuit agrable et une douceur vanill. Le profil du Bourbon est fort discret et pour moi quais absent. Bire complexe qui sait conserver une approche traditionnelle tout en tant grandement bien ficele. Vraiment superbe o chaque gorge est un plaisir.

Courtesy of Sebletitje. Thx! 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. Pours a blackish, very dark brown, quickly gone beige head. Nose is sweet chocolate, raisins, chocolate cornflakes, coffee, cocoa, dark fruits, Taste is sweet chocolate and coffee, chocolate pie & truffles, dark malts, slightly warming, light toast and dark sugar, Touch grainy body but very full. I didnt particularly care for the regular one but this one is truly wonderful. Comes to show if the need or the desire were to arise, the big boys can do incredible work.
