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.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2005
2000 vintage. Dark brown looks, light brown head recedes to a ring. Aroma starts to suggest some oxidation, but its not quite there yet. Mellow nose, hinting at rich malt that is more or less there I feel. Soy sauce, vanilla and chocolate soaked marshmallows. Subdued roastiness. A bit stale in mouth, chocolate and coffee comes out classic and interesting oaty and graham cookies undertones add a dimension to the overdone sweetness, but unlike a good oatmeal stout, it seems to also give a syrupy and grainy cerealic sensation. Thin-medium body, very low carbonation... Hard to rate this one, its one of those for which my score could range +/- 1.0 from one day to another, but as of today, I know I certainly wont seek that anywhen soon.

Interesting to try a beer from Sweden. Dark brown pour with a white head. The carbonation was a little too much for me. Aroma of raisin, wine, caramel and soy sauce. The raisin caramel and wine were the main tastes along with some chocolate. The soy sauce showed up a little but it was not that bothersome. Pretty nice Porter.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2005
!998 version. Black in color, opaque with a dark, tan head. Aroma of a chocolate brownie and dark fruit. Surprisingly in good shape at 5.5% ABV. It had none of the overcarbonated, exhausted character that many beers of this ABV would display after 7 years. A huge, toasted, port-like, vinous character makes up most of the flavor profile.

Argang 2004....best by May 2014? Crazy. Kind of wishing I let this sit around for a while now... Even so, very good. Very black, small tan head. Definite coffee and ashtry type aromas. Same for flavor with a bit of caramel thrown in. Got to get some more bottles, drink some, age others

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 arang 2001. Poured Black, with a tight foamy tan head. Burnt coffee and caramel. Also some hops in the back ground. My mouth is watering. Taste is full body, thick and creamy. pleasant bitter coffe flavor. Good malt back bone gives this a great taste. Has held up very well for 3-4 years. Re-rate of a 1997 this was spoken of as a better vintage, but this was more watery then I felt with the 2001. re-rate 2004. This also seemed watery.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2005
"Argang 1997" Nearly flat and dark, dark brown. Strong, sweet aroma with molassas, tar, chocolate,. some sourness. Very well balanced combination of unusual flavors. Some multi-vitamin, some chalk, some herbs, a little acrid roastiness. Dry, slightly tart finish. Has held up well for an 8 year old ale of such low alcohol content. Interesting little trip in time.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2005
1997 Vintage, Bottle: Pours black with no head. Aroma is a pungent syrupy sweet malt that is a bit off putting. The flavor is much better. An ashy roast, a slight chocolate syrupy sweetness, some meat and herbs in the finish. Decent porter but I couldnt see drinking to much of it.

1997 edition. A very smooth porter, with some sourness. Very Black and very roasty and other herbs, including fennel aroma and possibly peppermint i

A delicious porter from Sveden. Odor de wet dog, coffee, cigarrettes, smoke and chocolate. Some sweetness, tho I did not notice as much as some raters have said. Great aftertaste, though odd carbonation after a while. A fine brew in many regards. Unsure why this would age well as the bottle and other raters say as it is very low in alcohol. Opinions?

Based on other ratings, Im almost certain that I had a bad bottle of this beer. Mine had NO head to speak of to complement its nearly black color. Nose was fantastic...but flavor was very weak and flat. Ill have to try this again, hopefully with better luck.
