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.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle. Blackish brown with a creamy head. Strong aroma but without a dominant note. All is in equilibrium here - coffee, dark chocolate, plums, port wine, ground cocoa and some sourish-mineral notes. Low ABV for a baltic porter but a remarkably full body. The flavour remains quite subtle, with the oily consistency being skilfully balanced by a sourish note, the roastedness becoming evident only in the aftertaste, where there is a note of ash behind the coffeeish-mineral flavour. Light sweet, light bitter, light sourish, a bit of coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, roasted malt, mineral notes... This beer is all about moderation in its component parts but on the whole it is remarkably sumptuous.

Bottle at Trial. Dark but not black. Tan head. Hint of roast in the nose. Nice roast in flavor, burnt but slight. There is a stream of sweet that balances the dark malts. Real nice, robust and flavorful without being too big and alcoholic.
