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.

Pint bottle poured in an English pint glass. This beer pours black with a nice frothy head. Its quite pretty. It doesnt have much of an aroma but what is there is sweet with a hint of plum. This beer has an exceptionally strong prune flavor and is quite smooth. Im actually quite amazed at the prevalence of the prune flavor. Its not the best beer Ive had but it gets extra points for originality.

2006 rated in 2008. Black with the tiniest cherry breaking through. Tan foam, nice lacing. Dark fruit aroma..choc. and roasted malt. My first Swedish brew. a little watery on the palate. Milder taste versus aroma. Does this beer have any hops? Sour espresso is in another rating..good description ...if you add malt and chocolate.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2007
2006 Vintage. Bottle. Pours a deep black with a small, dark khaki head. Aroma of sweet chocolate with raisins. Mouthfeel is initially sweet, but a nice bitter finish comes through in the end. Nice beer for a fall evening.

BillHick420 (458) - NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
Pours dark black with a slight brown head. Aroma of mild black coffee and slight chocolate notes. A porter with classic taste. I feel like the chocolate aromas are lacking. Seems a bit unbalanced for a porter

This beer pours a deep dark chocolate brown with a light tan head. I smelled a a light toasted maltiness with chocolate tones. Excellent balance and smoothness. This may be the one of the best porters I have tasted

2006 bottle. Pours dark brown almost black with a thin tan head. Nice chocolate malt aroma with some dark fruit. Flavor is milk chocolate, roasted malt, cherries, plums, and light coffee bitterness. Well balanced sweet and bitter. Clean finish. Fantastic!

Supposed to be consumed at room temperature. It just didnt do it for me. Cool bottle, tho.

1997 vintage (argang). Aroma of chocolate cake - and that aint bad. Almost completely flat, no head at all, just a mild hint of carbonation. Deep coffee-brown colr. Black pepper, then dark chocolate, a bit watery as the flavor fades. Medium body, oily and round. Some woodiness. and moderate dryness. Very nice for this odd style.. I believe this one was too old and had lost some depth.

Nearly black pour. Pretty roasty in the nose, coffee, burnt toast. Tastes of the same, with maybe some slight dark chocolate and molasses. Enough hops to even it out. Another very good Scandanavian porter, albeit a little different.
