COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
San Franciscoís 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.

Canít say anything to add to the many good things that have already been said about Anchor Porter. Suffice it to say that I agree with most of the other comments. Great stuff.

Indra (2608) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2000
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2004 Deep brown-black color, nice dark tan foamy, lasting head. Such a unique and full-bodied porter. Chocolate flavors with an incredible bittersweet, roasted malt finish and lingering hops. Thick and creamy. Quite satisfying.
