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.

tlind2 (1682) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle. Deep brown color, rich tan head. Coffee grounds and wood in the nose. Silky smooth flavor with roasted malts and coffee. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Its just a bit too sweet to be amazing, but a decent beer as is.

BillHick420 (458) - NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
Pours dark black with a slight brown head. Aroma of mild black coffee and slight chocolate notes. A porter with classic taste. I feel like the chocolate aromas are lacking. Seems a bit unbalanced for a porter

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012
Dark colour and tan head. I felt a bit disappointed by this, its quite sweet and the taste buds didnt have to work overtime, as they have gotten used to. Still a good beer. (Bottle)

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
The pour is brown in color with a small tan head. Some roast malt, dark fruit, and a hint of coffee come through first on the nose. A bit dusty and oxidized. Quite a lot of dark fruit, especially prunes. The flavor is fairly simple. Some roasted malt, chocolate, and tons of dark fruit.

Lukaduke (3160) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Pours a burnt umber color with a finger of mocha foam. Aromas are sweet caramel, roasted malt and a bit of coffee. The palate is a bit sticky but the round molasses notes work nicely with the roasted coffee background and a touch of bitterness to clean up the finish. A bit buttery but it kind of works with the style... just not in love with it.
