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.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2008 Great porter. Not quite nail the toasty, buttery maple/carmel malt characteristic found in a Fuller’s 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 isn’t 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

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

Brune 33 cl à mousse blanc/jaune plutôt persistante. Odeurs de réglisse, de cerise, de caramel, de candi. Saveurs chocolatées, sucrées, un peu de café, des fruits noirs ... Bel équilibre même avec ce côté "sucré" qui ne me fait pas penser à une Porter mais me plait assez. Pas contre, quasi pas d’amertume !

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.

elosop (422) - SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2014
Årgång 2013. Kolsvart med fin krona som dock ganska snabbt försvinner. Doftar inte så mkt, men smaken ngt lenare. Bred maltig choklad med lakrits på toppen. Tämligen markerad beska. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång, lite söt, men ändå torr. Mkt God som uppenbarligen kan sparas mkt längre än ett år.

KM (416) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 16, 2007
Bottle, årgang 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)

A drank a bottle saved from year 2004. Eight years old... Quite nice but a bit too sweet.
