One of Michael Jacksons 500 Classic Brews. Carnegie Porter was brewed for the first time in 1836 and tastes the same today as it did then. Carnegie Porter has a creamy head with a scent of coffee. Its sweet and wellrounded flavor is balanced by the bitterness of the hops. Storage helps the flavor mature and enhances its harmony.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2005
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 its priced at.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2005
1997 vintage (argang). Aroma of chocolate cake - and that aint 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.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2005
Immensely better than the pale Folkl imitation. Has roasty flavour and malty, spicy body. Bad thing is that the body lacks punch. Easily my favourite Carlsberg ever.

godol (6) - Stvie, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2005 does not count
Black and beautiful, strong but not so creamy head, full body, rich flavor with tendencies towards chocolate, could have had a little more bitterness, feels more fresh than the old Guiness

lamas (1630) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2005
1 pint 0.9 fl. oz. 2004 bottle. Best before May 2014. One of the lighter porters Ive seen. Dark ruby pour with two finger thick light-tan head that leaves some lace. A little bit nutty, some roasty malts and chocolate in the aroma. Goes down creamy and smooth but with hardly any body at all. Almost like it just dissolves on my tongue. The high level of carbonation adds to this sensation. Im starting to get some bitterness by the end of the bottle. Coffee, caramel and hints of nuts and burnt toast are present in the taste.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2005
1997 Bottle (5-2-5-2-10=2.4): Very sweet, yeasty, sherry-like, marzipan aroma. Opaque brown with a swirl and ring of tan head. Sherry, marzipan, mild roasty flavours with some tired malty sweetness. Medium-light body feels a bit watery with very low carbonation. Definitely past its prime. Bottle (trade, Nov. 2004). Thanks, goldtwins!
2000 Bottle (6-3-6-3-12=3.0): Nutty, sweet chocolate aroma with a light roastiness. Opaque brown with a decent and lasting cover of tan head. Nutty, roasty, chocolate flavours are all there and are enjoyable if not altogether exciting. Medium body with low-fair carbonation. It was interesting to try these two vintages back to back, but my guess is that this is one beer thats better savoured when fresh. Bottles enjoyed with Lubiere, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2005
1996 Bottle. This must of been aged far to long, because there is no way I can picture this beer being in the top 94%. Poured a dark dark brown, fizzled for a few seconds and then laid completely flat. Aromas were of slightly roasted malts, soy sauce, chocolate and raisons. The flavor was bland and watered down, mostly due to the flatness of this beer. But there were nice touches of port wine, slightly nutty chocolate, and weak soy. Mouthfeel was similar to rinsing your mouth out with watered down coffee, without the coffee flavor. This has got to be a bad example of this beer, just looking at the ratings it appears the 99 vintages and on have far higher ratings.
