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.

Love this one. Carmel, malt, and smoth creamy goodness dominate. Lots of other flavors going on though. Every bottle has revealed something new to me. I will buy this beer many many more time in the future...GUARANTEED.

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!

This is a well-rounded porter...fruity, malty, roasted, slightly chocolate flavored. I highly recommend it.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2004
12 oz bottle. Pours a thick head; good lace. Hold to the light and some gets through. Flowery bouquet; flavor at first a bit roasted and astringent with some strong black coffee. Dry bitter finish. Excellent example of the style

Delightful porter. Rich backbone malt with excellent lace on tap. Hop character strong, but not overpowering. Savory at room temperature.

frankR (145) - Davis, California, USA - MAR 24, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2004 Pours thick and black. Thick and lasting spumous tan head, strong lacing as expected, fairly strong carbonation. Nose is toasted grain, soapy carbonation and yeast. Front: sweet roasted malts, acidic, some hops. Body: mega fruit asters Anchor style, berries and apple, bitter toasted grains with some hops, lots of sweet malts. Finish: some burnt toast, good balance. Palate is creamy and thick. Excellent porter.

Much differant then the other Porters I have had thus far. More of a dry taste, hops are much more exentuated, and coffee notes are in the background instead of the forefront like the others I have had.
