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.

Pours a nice black. Nose comes off with a sweet chocolate with a mix of plums. A bit bitter in taste, mixing malt and bitter chocolate... I think there was even a hint of sour cherry. A decent porter.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 Pours deep brown/red. Masive head. Really nice billowing effect. Had to hold of on the pour. Amazing aroma. Just wonderfull; sweet, molases, touch of carmel. This is a remarkable porter. Great mouthfeel not to thick and stoutlike but not watery. Almost a roasted almond, nutty flavor. Complex and well blended. Slight medicinal aftertaste. Pretty bitter finish but well balenced by the syrupy nutty flavor proflile. This is outstanding.

jb (2755) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Almost black in color with a quickly subsiding tan head. Coffee, chocolate, toffee smells jump out of this. Nice and chewy with taste of chocolate malt but enough hops to keep the bargain. A typical porter to me, but I expect alot of this style.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 i loved this beer, very dark with some rubis reflection with a small creamy head and smell like mocha and hops. The taste is great and robust for a porter, rosted, mocha and creamy, one of the best porter i ever tasted. Une très bonne Porter, très opaque, avec quelques reflets rubis a peine perceptible, par contre sa mousse de couleur moka est légère, mais crèmeuse. Au goût, elle est onctueuse, bonne amertume, le grain grillé et sa saveur de moka est prédominante et elle est assez gazeuse. Je la reccomande fortement.
