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.

One terrific Porter! Beautiful color and terrific head. Nice hops addition to the coffee flavoring. The first sip was nice and the last was even better. Very tasty.

The best porter I have had yet. WOW, a head that you could float Delta Burke on! Very dark in color, like a good porter it allows no light to pass through it when held to a light. Aroma of chocolate malt and perhaps cinnimon. Not overly sweet. This is crisp and not flat tasting like most porters I have had.

This is one to keep in the fridge. Perfect blend off coffee and chocolate. This is one of my favorite porters.

Very good porter. Deep rich black color, with a chocolaty-floral aroma. Nice creamy feel on the palate. Flavor is a great combination between dark chocolate and floral tones. A great bitterness nicely rounds off the sweetness. Nice.

Near black, nice creamy light brown head, slightly lace. Creamy, taffy?, soft and a bit rousted malty nose. Silk soft and balanced, pretty full body, rousted malty, a bit bit bitter. Aftertaste is rousted malty and long, maybe a bit of coffee-like. Overall pleasant soft and creamy porter.

Bittersweet chocolate, anisette aroma. Thick tan head. Deep ruby-black hue. Oh what a palate. Vinous fruit, chocolate, coffee, toffee, caramel accents, burnt grain, licorice, brown sugar. There’s so much going on here, molasses as it warms. Medium bodied, and the finish is oh so delicious. Long and sweet, turning to a hint of bitter hops. I love this prter, one of my favorites, a masterpiece, always available, and always excellent.

This beer has a light tan head that doesn’t stick around for too long, and a very drak red-brown color. As for taste, think of dehydrated fruit covered w/ dark chocolate. I can’t say much for an aroma, I’m not picking much up even w/ the beer warmed up a bit.
