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.

This brew is slightly sweetish with a fruity bitterness. Less dry than other Porters though. Hints of caramel. The body is too light for my idea of a perfect Porter and the finish is bitter sweet but far too short. The Porters in the London docks would have been on strike if they’d got this one…

Butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem. Ciemny, prawie czarny, z dosc skapa piana szybko sie redukujaca. Aromaty palone, popiolowe, owocowe (sliwki), troszke kawy. W odbiorze taki ziemisty. Smak jest kontynuacja aromatu, ale jest chyba bogatszy, czuje sie tez karmel, posmaki tostowe, chlebowe. Goryczka wyczuwalna. wysycenie niskie. W caloksztalcie - na pewno dobre, takie eleganckie piwo. ale strasznie grzeczne zarazem. byc moze niepotrzebnie przed wyborem zerknalem na oceny, wiec mimo, ze ewidentnie dobre piwo, to rozczarowany bylem ;)

355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours black with off white head. Not quite opaque, with some red tinges when you hold it up to the light. Nose is roasted malt with some cherry, fruity notes. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Mild bitterness, bittersweet chocolate. Flavours seems to get better with each sip. Delicous smokey, roasty notes linger at the back of the throat on the finish, which makes it very hard to drink just one. I really like this brew.

One of the best low-ABV beers out there. Drank with Kaspar at home 4-2-2015. Soft, creamy taste. Hints of coffee and bitterness as well. Nice combination between ’dark tastes’ and hopes. Good.
