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.

OK so this is a Baltic porter. More body than the one at 3,5%. Slightly better at every part. Still not too exciting. Weak aroma with some cola in it.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 9, 2009
bottle bought in Systembolaget - Stockholm. Appearance: dark brown color. Big head, beige color and some lasting. Aroma: Some "closed" aroma. Toast smells, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Flavor: toasty-sweety start. Lamentably, a bit of oxide and rancid notes. Reminiscences of chocolate, figs and coffee. Palate: Medium body and soft carbonation. Remark: Maybe a bad sample, sweet unbalance and some rancid.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2008 Great porter. Not quite nail the toasty, buttery maple/carmel malt characteristic found in a Fullers or a Koff, but it comes close. Hops is somewhat more prevalent here and the carbonation is noticeable. Nice beer.

Excellent Porter. Certinaly a landmark historically for the style. Vintage 2000:

Rich teak and dusty scarlet sit beneath a layered and lacy toape head. Beautiful aesthetically. Nose : Mostly butterscotch or caramel . This fades into a "hot" dark roasted note with cherries, licorice, and perhaps a hint of chicory. Butterscotch dominates. Flavors: Caramel fades into a butteriness that isnt diacetyl but simply the complexity of a smooth yeast next to a nicely roasted grain. This fades into a dry bitterness reminiscent of all good dry stouts or porters. However above the bitterness lies a distinct black olive, brown sugar sweetness that is immaculate. Naturally carbonated. The carbonation certainly caps all of this off leaving the mouth dry and bitter and sweet towards the edges of the palate. Excellent ale. Reminds me of Anchor Porter. G-rat

1997...poureed black with minimal head. The aroma was strong with oxidated scotch, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor was quite rich with roasted malt and burnt chocolate. Body was rather light.

Butters Big Blowout - Pours a dark brown with off white head, great lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, coffee. Similar taste but very smooth, not expected. Very drinkable. Very nice Porter

Good stuff. A nice rounded flavor, with a slightly hoppy aroma. Not great, but not bad.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2006
(1997 version)This beer has an aroma that could trick one into believing the ABV level is higher than it really is. The smell of sweet prunes and cherry chocolates tease the nose. It is a black colored solution with no head. This beer is neither thick nor thin. Its flavor is a mixture of caramel, coffee, nuts, and chocolate. This beer deposits an oily glaze on the tongue that enables the sweet flavor to linger.

KM (416) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 16, 2007
Bottle, rgang 2007. Dark dark brown body. Moderate creamy head. Aroma like a strong lager. A lot of malt. Heavy sweet malty flavour. A bit too sweet and hints of alcohol. Short and very sweet finish. (Trondheim, 03.04.07)
