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.

crossovert (12125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2013
This is a much mroe subtle bourbon aged porter. The barrel is dominant. Lots of vanilla, oakiness, woodiness, and slight booze int he aroma. Flavor has bittersweet cocoa, boozy bourbon, and a nice tannic dryness.

jackl (7466) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle @ Bruces. The pours deep brown with a small head. The nose is pennies, overcooked brownie, ash, hints of balsamic vinegar tang. The taste is toffee, plums, prune. Earthy dark fruits. A bit of alcoholic chocolate dessert. Full body, oily. Overall, pretty flavorful stuff. Not bad.

Scopey (13801) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours darkest brown with a thick beige head. The nose is roasted malt, treacle, cocoa, vanilla, oak, coconut, cola and faint oxidized notes. The taste is roasted malt, earth, toast, bitter chocolate, caramel, light-moderate bitterness, vanilla and coconut. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Not bad at all.

Paul takes a brown shower tasting at Bruces pad. Thanks to Bruce. Clear dark brown beer. Little tan head. Smooth soft palate, a little dry. Nice soft chocolate but not that sweet. A little malt cream and mild bourbon biscuit. Dry finish. Pretty tasty.

Lukaduke (3123) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Pours a rich brown color with a finger of khaki foam that sticks a bit. The nose is sweet chocolate, bourbon pecan, toffee and dark fruit. The palate follows with a well balanced toffee bourbon roundness that really plays nicely with the rich chocolate roasted malt flavors. Well done.

Leighton (20170) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle at Bruces, London - many thanks to Bruce and the dude who gave him this beer. Pours deep, red-brown with a tight, creamy tan head. Some toasty dark malts in the nose, hints of cheese, some sugary chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor, semi-dark malts, toasty bread, burnt brown sugar, subtle dry burnt wood. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Moderate warmth to finish, some dry wood, mild vinous texture, sugary chocolate. Nice beer, pretty well balanced, tasty.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a beige head. Lots of bourbon & vanilla in both aroma and flavor, also notes of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, oak, warming alcohol. The body is on the light side for this kind of beer.

beer_est_deus (1249) - rebro, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2013
Mrk, mrk brun med rtt i sig, litet och ltt frgat skum. Doft: Choklad, wiskey, vanilj, lakrits, skogsjord. Smak: Barr, lakrits, jord, kaffe med socker, wiskey. Ett bra tag sedan jag tog en flaska sist, minns inte den tydliga wiskey smaken frn tidigare. Hoppas att den minskar eller balanseras, nu tar den ver fr mycket.
