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.

LimeGreenHalo (10) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
A fairly flat nose of earthy and caramel aromas adumbrates the heavy silkiness or the pear, cocoa and burnt flavours which give way to dry bitterness. There is perhaps a very slightly cloying sweetness that detracts marginally from a wonderful tasting experience. The mouth feel is as luxurious as velvet cascading around the mouth. Overall a fantastic beer I was sorry to see the bottom of, best appreciated on it’s own.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2015 A great little Porter! I?ve tried some with richer and more complex tastes but that doesn?t mean there?s anything wrong with this one. I like it a lot.

suurjuust (1940) - ESTONIA - AUG 7, 2015
Brown beer, tan head. Nose is cocoa, malt, bready notes. There’s more flavor than the nose would suggest, lots of chocolate and malt notes, vanilla, mild notes of smoke and licorice. Finishes with garepfruity bitterness, chocolate and smoke notes. Pretty interesting stuff.
