COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
San Francisco’s famous Anchor Porter brand is made in one of the smallest and most traditional breweries in the world by the brewers of Anchor Steam Beer. Our old-fashioned Porter is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. We use 100% malted barley, generous amounts of fresh, whole hops, entirely natural carbonation and a simple, natural brewing process which is like no other in the world. The deep black color, the thick, creamy head and the intensely rich flavor of Anchor Porter, made in San Francisco since 1974, have earned this delicious and unique brew a worldwide reputation for outstanding quality. It is aesthetically pleasing and wholly superior in every respect.

Virtually black with a tan head. Licorice is the dominant aroma here, with other malty notes of roasted nuts and caramel. There's tons of licorice flavor too, with some chocolate flavors also entering the picture. Long finish, great stuff. Thanks Lubiere!

Pours almost black with a thin tan head. Sweet, malty, slight chocolate aroma. UUmmmmm, This beer is really good. Creamy, heavy malt flavor with good bittersweet aftertaste. Being a porter lover, my rating my be slightly biased, but this is a great beer.

Pours dark black, with tan head. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, slightly nutty, and roast malt. Very smooth flavor and finish, with hints of chocolate, coffee, prunes, and slight almonds. A delicious, very complex porter.

The beer pours a nice dark black with a brown head. The aroma has hints of coffee. The taste is awesome and hard to describe because it is very smooth yet well defined. The malty aspect of this porter is nicely executed. I highly recommend this Anchor product.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Pours a deep dark black. No light gets through it. No real head or aroma. Flavor is a musty,roasted carmel. There is the usual chocolate and coffee flavors here which stand out quite strong. Very good and excellent lacing.

The three D's: Deep, dark, and delicious! Dark brown, with a nice tan head. Big roasty aroma, with chocolate and coffee hints. flavor is big, malty, smooth, and a little to the swet end of the spectrum. Glad this is readily available, and it is a toast to this beer seeing that there are 470 ratings and it has a rating of 3.95!
