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.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JUL 6, 2009
2004 version. Smell of smoked woodchips, coffee, toffee, and lots of sweet vanilla. Taste carries more of the same along with some peppery spicy feel on the tongue...nutmeg, cherries, chocolate milk. Mouthfeel was a bit too light; but it went down smooth with a slight dry, boozy finish. Pretty damn good.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Thank you Norm I have had two versions of this beer one was brought back from the land of cross country skis and one with a different ABV was bought at Bottleworks. A little thin but it did contain all the porter characteristics and was enjoyable. Page 107 of Michael Jacksons Great Beer Guide and only 437 out of his 500 Classic Brews to go

rgng 2006. Pours a very dark chocolatey brown with some ruby peeking through the edges. The head peaks at about one finger and fades fairly quickly to a thin soapy cap, leaving behind a thin bit of lacing. Smell; dark rooasted/toasted malts, chocolate, coffee and some mild hops. Theres some dark fruits going on, and a little malty sweetness as well. Taste; lots of roasted flavors up front with burnt toast and coffee, and theres a pretty strong chocolate presence. Some dark fruits and a bit of a hoppy bitterness round out the finish. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and with a fairly smooth carbonation it has a pretty silky feel. The drinkability is really good, and add in te fact that, for a Baltic Porter the alcohol level is fairly low, I could easily enjoy a couple of these.

From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep amber thats nearly black with a thick tan head, lots of lacing. Nose is coffee, roasted malt. Taste is very sweet, medium bodied, some hop bitterness balancing this out. Finishes so silky with a great after taste. Awesome porter

mpersinger (365) - , California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
2006 Vintage enjoyed today. Poured deep brown with ruddy, copper highlights and yellow halo. Ring of beige bubbles, but no head. Cookie dough, black currant jam and cocoa persist from aroma to nose, along with flour, and dark-fruit fruitiness from yeast and oxidation- leaning toward sherry. There are complex notes from coffee/toffee character, alcohol warmth and evergreen hops that appear towards the finish. Body is barely medium, and theres a prickliness on tongue; this brew tastes like cola as it warms. Complexity in the range of much bigger beers, but leaner and easier drinking (enjoyed outside on sunny CA afternoon).

1996 Bottle. This must of been aged far to long, because there is no way I can picture this beer being in the top 94%. Poured a dark dark brown, fizzled for a few seconds and then laid completely flat. Aromas were of slightly roasted malts, soy sauce, chocolate and raisons. The flavor was bland and watered down, mostly due to the flatness of this beer. But there were nice touches of port wine, slightly nutty chocolate, and weak soy. Mouthfeel was similar to rinsing your mouth out with watered down coffee, without the coffee flavor. This has got to be a bad example of this beer, just looking at the ratings it appears the 99 vintages and on have far higher ratings.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 A very well-balanced beer, although I find it a bit too sweet. The appearance is brownish black and sort of appeapling in its simplicity.
