COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Thick head. Very dark beer with only a little hint of deep brown showing when held to light. Hints of chocalate and some caramel in the aroma. Has a nice malty taste with some chocolate aftertaste. Good but not great beer.

Dark Opaque body with marvelous head. Molasses and roast aroma. Thick burned palate. Nice beer for a St-Patrick! Thanks to Eructoblaster for this one.

Probably one of the better porters I have ever had. It is missing all of the ashy-ness that I normally associate with the style- might have to do with this one being European instead of American.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Pitch black with lots of tan head. Nice broken sheets of lacing. Herbaceous, malty alcoholic aromas. Chcolately and almost sea salty, with a succulent savory burst. Very creamy and rich. Palate is smooth and fulfilling, like good chocolate cherry bread. A little metallic aftertaste brings this one down for me.

anise and roasted chocalate upfront with a creamy mouthfeel and avery longlasting dry finish. Rasins andPlums roundout this very nice Baltic porter.

ukoolaid (580) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Bottle. Very dark brown color with decent sized brown head. Aroma is malty with a hint of dark fruit. Taste is smooth and malty with a little roast. Pretty decent, but nothing to write home about.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2005
1997 vintage: Poured coffee brown, no head, and thin. Chocolate and roasted nuts in aroma and flavor...bitter long finish. Disappointed by its thin texture and feel in the mouth.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2005
bottle, 1997 vintage. big aroma of licorice, raisins, alcohol, and sweet maltiness. black body, no head. flavour is not unlike milk chocolate. some roastiness and coffee-like properties. very sweet. body is a little on thin side. Its funny because I didnt realize how old this bottle was..I just picked it up off the shelf at Merchants Fine Wines in Dearborn without thinking about it. That said, it turned out to be a decent porter.

Thanks to rickgordon for this one. 2003 vintage. Sweet roasted malt, Twizzlers, chocolate and some coffee. Light smoky notes. Dark black clear with thin brown lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with roasted malts, Twizzlers and coffee, some chocolate. Mild smoky notes with tangy bitterness. Medium roasted, lightly burnt malt. Decent bitter finish and bittersweet after.
