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.

Hoser (387) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2007
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

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

elosop (384) - SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2014
rgng 2013. Kolsvart med fin krona som dock ganska snabbt frsvinner. Doftar inte s mkt, men smaken ngt lenare. Bred maltig choklad med lakrits p toppen. Tmligen markerad beska. Eftersmaken hyggligt lng, lite st, men nd torr. Mkt God som uppenbarligen kan sparas mkt lngre n ett r.

Sonicdescent (384) - Donora, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Had this at the Ratebeer Pittsburgh gathering. Pours a nice dark black with little head, but I curve a bit due to the small pour. Smells too sweet, this reminded me of Creme Brulee, the cloyingly sweet beer, not the cloyingly sweet desert dish. Taste, however, is excellent. The sweetness is there, but not overpowering. Mouth is medium in carb and body.

A first rate example of a porter. Nice rich aroma, and a slightly bitter/burnt chocolate flavor. Reasonably smmoth and dry finish.

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: SEP 6, 2016 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a medium off-white head. Moderate malty aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel and syrup. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium- body, with a semi-dry texture. Average carbonation. Low bitterness.
