2001 vintage. Sweet plum, chocolate and roasted malt in the nose. Deep dark reddish-brown coloring, thin light head with decent lacing. Medium heavy body. Tastes are the same as the aroma, nice chocolate and roasted flavors also some coffee notes as well. I’m quite pleased with this, a must buy!! Ulla (17) - Halmstad, Nebraska, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2003
One of the few we Swedes can compete with on the international market. Full of chocolate and burnt sugar and though dry in the palate. Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2004
A new favorite porter for me. This beer has it all, and best of all, it is not one of those porters that may as well be a stout. It is thick, but not too thick; sweet, but not too sweet. If you like porter, this is the one. zen (41) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAR 22, 2004
This porter broke me at $5 fro a 16.9 oz. Pours a coal black but penetrable by light revealing hues of red and burgundy. Smell is distant like many porters but reveals chocolate, dates and earth. The taste is all porter woodsy malt flavors overtoned with dates and bark. Extremely creamy med body porter that I could enjoy with just about anything. One of the finest I've had.

1997, small bottle. Freakin fantastic beer. Robust, complex, full bodied flavors intertwined to make just a great beer. The bittersweet chocolate and coffee are rich and tasty. Mellow dried fruits. Smooth and lightly gritty finish.

Just poured this one. Black hole colored (no light coming through my desk lamp) with a two finger tan head. 5 for appearance. Aroma reminiscent of Fuller’s London Porter, with big malt, some fruit, chocoff, corn flakes, piney hops, and slight soy sauce. Tastes wonderfully balanced, firm, and complex, with hints of chocolate syrup, capuccino, cherries, corn flakes, molasses. Gets more chocolate syrupy as it warms. Super smooth finish. A delicious beer. Outstanding! If Andrew Carnegie were alive, he’d love this beer that’s named after him. He’d probably even put it in Carnegie Hall next to his art collection.

!998 version. Black in color, opaque with a dark, tan head. Aroma of a chocolate brownie and dark fruit. Surprisingly in good shape at 5.5% ABV. It had none of the overcarbonated, exhausted character that many beers of this ABV would display after 7 years. A huge, toasted, port-like, vinous character makes up most of the flavor profile.

3 vintages was sampled: 2003, 2004 and 2005. This rating is for the 2003 vintage. Redbrown colour. Dark foam. Smells from madeira and prune. Dry in flavour with notes of madeira. Nice full body and very mild/smooth. Also hints of menthol in the background. Long finish! Carnegie Porter must not be consumed young. Wait at least two years.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 Flaska 10 grader.
UTS: Som vanligt härligt skummande och stabil krona. Krämar liksom till sig... Mörk som en härlig kopp Zoega.
D: Kaffe och en lätt sötma
S: Söt sliskig sötma (från en positiv sida), rostat kaffe, choklad, vaniljstång, mandel, medel beska - mycket bra balans.
ES: lång och skön efterbeska
Som sagt väl värd att lagra men det är inte "my way" - "88" som jag fick smaka på i påskas var himmelsk.
Jaha då var det dags Tidde bjöd på en 1989.
Underbar liten flaska.
UTS: svart som synden, skum - struntar vi i
Smak: tjära, choklad, rå-rörd hallonsaft från de mörka värmländska skogarna
