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.

Een mooie porter, mooi donkerbruin van kleur met een kleine schuimkraag. Aroma van koffie, zo ook de smaak.

gEUS (1395) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2015
bottle at home. Pours deep brown with a light beige head. Aroma is freshly grinded coffee bean with something floral to it, like rose petals. Light, almost watery like mouthfeel, yet creamy towards the mid and pulling dry by the end. Taste is green paprica, cold coffee and medium dark chocolate. Impressive given the low alcohol.

Bottle, 355ml. Dark ruby with a frothy, creamy brown head. Aromas of dried fruits, chocolate, molasses. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth chocolate sweetness with a moderately bitter, but surprisingly tasty fruity character. Modest, but very pleasant.

12 oz pour from room temperature bottle into goblet. Decent carbonation, opaque, blank as night, strong, pillowy head. Nose is dark malts, a little smoke, a little burnt, dark chocolate. Dry. Mouthfeel is a bit watery for a porter. A little thin. Taste is good. Dark malts, woods, earthy, a little chocolate, bitter, vanilla. A pretty good porter.

355 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, black with an average, creamy, brown head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, liquorice and a hint of smoke in the aftertaste with a dry bitter finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Really strong fruity caramel aroma. Quite syrupy tasting and a real hit of chocolate. Gorgeous dark colour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black brown colour with compact head. A smell of coffee, roasted dark chocolate and malts. The same is the taste with little bitterness in aftertaste. Different from a draught stout, but definitely as nice! Great to drink ice cold.

Ook na de clam chowder, uit plastic of fles. Ruikt zurig naar drop, grappig. Mooi donker met dik schuim. Smaakt fris voor een porter maar wel lekker. Update: Iets dieper uit de fles minder fris, sterke en ook lekkere koffie smaak.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2015 Really nice beer . The body and the texture of the beer for me was the most astonishing (perfect carbonation and a creamy touch) . The taste fantastic. I really enjoyed it.
