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.

Really faint overall, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, licorice.

A pitch black beer with a medium medium head.

Starts faint like the aroma, gets more sweet after the start. Ends slightly bitter and roasted.

Shared bottle. Pours is dark with thick brownish creamy head that doesn’t last long. Aroma of roasted malts, roasted nuts, milk chocolate, fruity sour. Taste is light sweet, acidic fruity notes (apple), hints of bittery, roasty mouthfeel. Light body, thick texture, soft carbonation, coffee bittery finish.
