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 is a great beer. Great strawberry aroma with a smooth head and a chocolatey/coffee aftertaste that lasts just long enough to make its point. I love this beer, and anything Anchor makes.

Rhombic (62) - SPAIN - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. Pours with a large dark tan head with brilliant lacing, floating on top of a marvellously dark, almost black liquid with reddish tones. The aroma is rich: toffee and burnt sugar... especially a dark chocolate to cocoa powder aroma. Coffee, pure cocoa flavours perfectly balanced with the smooth oily creaminess, some smoky notes. Medium body. Very drinkable and smooth.
