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.

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.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2004
09.19.04 2001, 500ml Ive had this beer a bunch of times, so Im surprised I havent entered any notes before. Beer pours a dark, dark brown with middling brown head. Very solid porter with nice coffee and dark fruit complexity. No beating around the bush, this is a standby and always very tasty. Perfect body for a porter is medium coating, lightly effervescent, finishes sticky.

Hansen (8524) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2004
Dark and with a big brown head. Coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Flavor has lots of malt/bread with coffee and chocolate. Complex and good.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2004
1997, small bottle. Freakin fantastic beer. Robust, complex, full bodied flavors intertwined to make just a great beer. The bittersweet chocolate and coffee are rich and tasty. Mellow dried fruits. Smooth and lightly gritty finish.

(Bottle) Pours a dark brown with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma of coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and malt. Creamy palate. Flavor reflects the aroma of the beer quite nicely. Good porter!

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottled, argang 2002, sampled same year. Very dark in colour with thick brown head. Roasty, coffeeish aroma; bitter, roasty and chocolate notes in the palate. My friend (not a beer lover) when tasted it said: "Is this a beer? Is it possible for a beer to taste like this?" Then he went to Systembolaget and bought a bottle of Orval...
