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.

DrnkMcDermott's rating

DrnkMcDermott (3048) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Traded for this in 2005, and Im not sure the "2001" on the label is the bottling date. But at 5.6% abv, it probably should be rated by now. Thick, coffee-liquer nose in the 500 ml bottle. Pours a solid black with a kind of greyish stout-type head. For all its thick smell, though, the actual beer is pretty easy drinking. Slight banana note at first, then a gentle porter with some spices, and a pronounced lager finish. A little more texture and coffee roast toward the bottom, but this never goes beyond its nice quaffability. I suspect this didnt really need to age this long. And only my third rating from Sweden?

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2017 Bottle at Tria, Philly. Dark but not black. Tan head. Hint of roast in the nose. Nice roast in flavor, burnt but slight. There is a stream of sweet that balances the dark malts. Real nice, robust and flavorful without being too big and alcoholic.
