3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A black beer with a light brown head. The aroma is slightly smokey - but not enough for a porter. And the flavor is dominated by a sweet smoked taste - not my preference of a porter because of too little smoked malt - but a nice beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 35,5 cl) All the Anchor beers wakes up good memories from my US road trips back in the 90es. Oh sweet innocence... Tar-like blackness with a slightly creamy, brownish head. No extra added fermentables or carbon dioxide. Fat and powerful, sweet almost port-like with a dry hoppiness on the palate. Very interesting Porter.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a small creamy beige head.
Aroma of coffee and chocolate with notes of liquorice and nuts.
Flavour of coffee and chocolate, with notes of liquorice, that ends up with a nice bitterness.
One of the best porters I’ve had.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Black opaque, brown huge foamish head. Fruitish and roasted aroma, with some caramellish hints. Sweetish banana flavour at first, and the sweetness grows in finish and then turns into a grapefruitish dryness in aftertaste. Mouthdrying.
