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.

TorbenJensen (828) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
A really nice porter who looks just like you would expect it. Deep black color with beautiful continuous light brown foam. It smells distinctly of caramel and hard roasted malt, but it is not enough to hide the tones of coffee and good licorice. The taste is very kind and very rich. It has only the sweet flavor from respectively caramel and malt, later, coffee slightly bitter taste note nice complex with a slightly sweet licorice. Comfortable long bitter aftertaste of coffee, and a little hop.
