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.

bhensonb (14891) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Bottle from Oak Tree. Argang 2004!!!!! Pours very brown/black with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Aroma of fresh dark fruits. Like fresh fig even. Full bodied with near creamy carbonation. Its very full of freshish dark fruit flavor. Rounding off with treacle. Not bitter, but not all that sweet. This must be balanced. Good drink. Ages well too.

Ratman197 (14376) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2006
0.25l. bottle 1997 vintage from Liquormax poured a nearly opaque reddish black with a small quickly dissapating amber head. Aromas of dark fruit,chocolate, charcoal and some vinous notes. Palate was very thin and watery. Flavors of carmel, charcoal, a hint of bakers chocolate, and a bit of wood with a light lingering bittersweet finish.

Tmoney99 (14199) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle from Rivers Bend. Poured a dark brown color with a large creamy brown head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Solid roasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Medium bittersweet roasted flavor with a medium smooth balanced finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer that did meet my expectations.

argo0 (14022) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2002
Dark beer with good head. Chocolate aroma with hints of roastiness. On taste, this flip-flops, with the roastiness becoming dominant but supplemented by hints of chocolate. Roasty bitter aftertaste. Full bodied, slightly chewy, but smooth. Incidentally, I accidentally served Kathy the top, and me the bottom (i.e., no mixing), of the beer. There was a noticeable difference in flavors, with the top half tasting less full, and even slightly metallic. This rating is based on re-mixing the two halves.

Christian (13341) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Dark brown with a red hue, lasting off-white head. Light toffee aroma with some chocolate, but quite weak. Sweet and toffee filled flavour. Big and soft mouthfeel, and drinkable, yes, but not really exciting. Quite a disappointment to me.
