Carnegie Swedish Porter

Carnegie Swedish Porter...$3.99 / 11.2oz
Swedish "Baltic Style Porter"
Carnegie Porter is a Swedish beer classic. It has been brewed since 1836 and the oldest registered brand in Sweden.

Carnegie Porter has a black body with a small caramel colored head. Aroma of caramel, dark rye bread, dark chocolate fudge. Very rich flavors including strong roasted tones of chocolate character and lots of hop bitterness which both are balanced and softened by a degree of sweetness. There is a complex blend of fermentation aromas combined with a heavy but smooth body. Slightly bitter with a mild dry finish.

Carnegie Porter is a great beer to vintage, as it will improve with storage for 10 years or more. What happens is not a continued fermentation as with live beers, but rather it is the same process as when a wine matures. After a year or two the taste will become very smooth and balanced. The aroma will become richer and complex and in some respects, similar to an old Madeira wine.

Alc./Vol.: 5.5
