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.

gabbledbabble (60) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2004
97 VINTAGE 50F Black, no head just a few tan bubbles. Looks a reflection of motor oil in a glass. Smell a bit of yeast, vinous alcohol, and barley soda pop. oh my god, thats beautiful. Melted bittersweet Callebaut chocolate with bubbles. A little prune syrup, a bit oily like blackstrap molasses. Leaves a puff of deisel smoke as it departs. A very economical beverage. Meaning its not so layered, or thick and fruity, or hopped up that it jumps all over the palate as if it were a trampoline. This beer is smooth with a smoky bite, with easy barley fruitiness, balanced alcohol and carbonation that reminds me of the difference in ride between my HONDA civic and a towncar. Many beers are variations of a civic: Good rides with personal embellishments that make the civic unique. This Baltic porter gives a ride like a towncar, smooth. Loved it, and could drink buckets of it.

1997 - Somewhat malty aroma, with a touch of alcohol, which is surprising for only 5.5% . Flavors of roasted barley, caramel, and a touch of coffee balance very well. Finishes with a hint of chocolate. Quite enjoyable.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2004
rgang 2000; Outstanding looking Porter with an almost black color and a thick creamy froth. It has a rich smell with hints of Expresso coffee, heavey roasted malts, licorice, chicoree, Butter toffee (Babbelutten),and some hints of dried fruits. It has a smooth mouthfeel with a light burned caramel unthertone and again hints of coffee, buttercakes, licorice and a burned bitterness in the end. The afthertaste is on the dry side and has a complex taste that lingers on and on.

Excellent Porter. Certinaly a landmark historically for the style. Vintage 2000:

Rich teak and dusty scarlet sit beneath a layered and lacy toape head. Beautiful aesthetically. Nose : Mostly butterscotch or caramel . This fades into a "hot" dark roasted note with cherries, licorice, and perhaps a hint of chicory. Butterscotch dominates. Flavors: Caramel fades into a butteriness that isnt diacetyl but simply the complexity of a smooth yeast next to a nicely roasted grain. This fades into a dry bitterness reminiscent of all good dry stouts or porters. However above the bitterness lies a distinct black olive, brown sugar sweetness that is immaculate. Naturally carbonated. The carbonation certainly caps all of this off leaving the mouth dry and bitter and sweet towards the edges of the palate. Excellent ale. Reminds me of Anchor Porter. G-rat

(500ml bottle) Beige/brown head with an opaque body. Nose of yogurt, cocoa and raisins. Smooth, milk chocolaty - very dairy. Delicious and gritty texture. Love it! The NEW strength from Stockholm! Thanks Luc.

VINTAGE 1986. Lots and lots of raisins. Fullbodied, still. Chocolate and coffe. Well preserved but a bit too hyped. Crispy bacon and burned rubber is also a part of this beer.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle 2001 Robust Porter, rich and malty, slightly smokey. Strong taste and smell of alcohol. I think many of the complexities of this beer have mellowed with age leaving this beer quite quaffable but not top-notch. Slightly astringent.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
A definitive ebony hue. Good, crackling tan head. As Fred Eckhart recommends, put this one to your ear and listen! Aroma is a blast of espresso, cocoa, anise and molasses. Rich and roasted, with loads of bitterness on the palate and a tenacious finish. Complex, if a bit gritty. Not a brew for novices or girly-men, this is stiff and substantial stuff. Label says best before August 2O1O, but who could wait that long? Unfortunately, the brewery has become bereft of their senses and is discontinuing this classic, so grab one if you can.
