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.

dinkle50 (1259) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Light aroma with a little roast. Full mouth. Taste has hints of copper and sweet roast. Slight bitterness. Something was a little off in this bottle. Pretty plain beer in my opinion, but not terrible.

caramel, bread, coffee, basement aromas, brown, cloudy, frothy, heavy cloying sweetness, sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, light body, creamy, long finish, Sí joder! Esto es una cerveza. Notas cada trago. Tiene ese color a trote entre el negro y el marrón oscuro, no deja pasar la luz. Espuma muy densa al tirar la cerveza pero casi inexistente cuando se disipa. Sabor tostado, me recuerda al café pero acabando en dulce.

Butelka 355ml w The Squere Bottle Chester. Czarny kolor. Piana bezowa palona dosc obfita. W aromacie wyrazna czekolada karmel kawa i palone-wedzone slody. Lekkie nuty owocowe w tle. W smaku raczej wytrawne niz slodkie. Kawa karmel lekka czarna porzeczka. Z pewnoscia mniej ciezkie niz wiekszosc porterow. Bardzo pijalne.

BeerRenter76 (647) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Originally rated on 9/7/08. I had been wanting to try this one for a while now, it pours a dark black body with a thin tan cap. Aroma of mocha and a little chocolate, flavors were similar. Mouthfeel was a little on the light side for me, but it was smooth and easy to drink, and a clean finish. Overall it was a pretty good porter.

Almost total darkness in color with a two finger tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, slight chocolate and some hops. Taste is similar but the coffee and roasted malts dominate. A good porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fules (209) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 4, 2016
Nagy, tartós, tejeskávé színű hab. Fekete szín. Illata fekete csokis, pici savanykás felhanggal. Finom, feketecsokis ízvilág, gyümölcsös, vörösboros felhangokkal. Közepesen testes és nyomokban sincs vizes érzet. Utóíze is a pörkölt malátáról szól és jó hosszú ideig szól. Jól eltalált, kiegyensúlyozott sör.
