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.

Slightly transcluent brown with diminutive tan head. Wine, raisin, port, ruby-like. More raisin, wine flavours, chocolate, some dust. Something missing from the taste and palate; a bit too old. Anyway a great porter.

Nische (2121) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget, cellared since release. Pours cola brown with lightly beige head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma of oak, toast, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate. The oaky barrel really shines through.Overall the oak, vanilla and chocolate are velvet smooth, with a tad cardboardy finish. Overall still very nice, but I think its just on the brink on turning for worse.
