UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottle. Black colour with a small baige head. Light roasted chocolat dark fruits aroma and a sweet roasted chocolat dark fruits coffee taste. Medium body and a light sweet finish. Re-Rate, I have had this beer as vintage 1998-1999-2000 and 2004, it seams to me that it´s best when about 5 years old. My rating is of a fresh Carnegie, though I think it gets better after some years. joergen (28103) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 A very well-balanced beer, although I find it a bit too sweet. The appearance is brownish black and sort of appeapling in it’s simplicity. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2005
Been kinda looking forward to this since I had the low alcohol version. Chocolate and prune aroma. Dark brew with some highlights. A gentle porter. Grape notes, chocolate edges with a trace of baking soda. Some charcoal in the finish. A meditative porter. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Small bottle, pours deep brown, nice small frothy head, huge aroma of chocolate and coffee. Nice texture, interesting palate, flavor contains various dark fruits and chocolate. A great beer, a great porter

Smells like mash. Flour (not flower), dough, nut, prun. Ruby/black with no head. Flavor is quite sweet, nutty, malty. Almost unhopped. Bittersweet chocolate finish, hazelnut. Next to no carbonation. hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2005
Pours almost black with a thick head. Sweet, fruity nose (raisin?). Sweet flavour from dark chocolate with nutty hints. Notes of caramel. Slight vinous. Light to medium bodied. Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - MAY 21, 2005
2004 vintage. Exceptional porter. No real head retention, but not necessary. True to style color, deep garnet bordering on brown. A sweet malt starts off on the palate and seeps into the taste buds and quietly fads away until it picks back up as it is swallowed. It you can find this beer it is worth whatever it’s priced at. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2005
1997 vintage (argang). Aroma of chocolate cake - and that ain’t bad. Almost completely flat, no head at all, just a mild hint of carbonation. Deep coffee-brown colr. Black pepper, then dark chocolate, a bit watery as the flavor fades. Medium body, oily and round. Some woodiness. and moderate dryness. Very nice for this odd style.. I believe this one was too old and had lost some depth. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2005
1997 vintage. Dark brown body, light tan and creamy head. Orange chocolate aroma, along with some molasses and maple syrup. Dry alfalfa sprout chocolate in taste, along with a Jack Daniels whiskey barrel finish. Good stuff, probably a bit better while younger.
