COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
One of Michael Jackson’s 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.

mribm (462) - Ocala, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2003
2001 16.9 oz. Bottle. Smells like chocolate and tastes like chocolate with a dry finish.

Ulla (17) - Halmstad, Nebraska, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2003
One of the few we Swedes can compete with on the international market. Full of chocolate and burnt sugar and though dry in the palate.

BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2003
2001 vintage
Pours a smooth black color with ruby edges, not much for head or lacing; a little oily. Aroma is very complex with sweet raisins, fig and port shining first then followed by roasted chocolate and oak. Very refined. Flavor is subtle but explodes with flavors: smoke, chocolate, raisins. Finishes lightly sweet with a perfectly dry coffee mouthfeel. This is a great porter, I'm glad this was recommended I try.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2003
The flavor has the richness of an imperial stout, but it is contained in a mere 5.5% beer: absolutely amazing. Reminds me a lot of Rasputin. Chocolatety, perfect level of sweetness. One of the creamiest bodies I've encountered. Tremendous, and a great #600.

3.7
TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2003
2001 vintage. Pours tar black with a decent tan head. Nose is predominantly coffee with a hint of malt and dark chocolate. The taste confirms this. More coffee with some sweetness. Very smooth and not as bitter as I was expecting. Lightly dried finish with more of the chocolate coming out. Great beer!

3.5
harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2003
A very nice appearance in the pour, with a head that disappears faster than you can pour it, but leaves some nice creaminess at the top. Overwhelming taste of coffee, with a burnt bitter taste like espresso. Nicely roasted with a slightly oily mouthfeel, after warming, this one becomes slightly unbalanced and watery. Still though, creamy and rich, and not bad, definitely worth a try.

3.5
bonvivant (169) - Smithfield, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2003
What a different porter! A little lighter in color than I expected and the flavor-coffee-coffee-coffee!A great beer for breakfast.Not really full and rich but very flavorful. Worth a try.

3.8
HighlanderOne (1373) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2003
As advertised on the label, coffee aroma that carried into the flavor. A good, hearty porter. Head disappeared fast but finished nicely to make up for that.

3.1
bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2003
A lot of carbonation. This is the louded beer I've ever had, it was like pouring a can of cola. Not bad, but it did taste a bit watered down.

3.2
I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Pours and looks nice. A bit watery with a faint finish. A Fuller's London Porter mixed half and half with water would still be better than this.
