Fantastic pitch black color with a brown head. Lots of roasted malt on the nose, and a hint of dough. Lots of burnt malts, and coffee flavors. To bitter finish for me.

Pours a very beautiful deep black color and is covered wit ha decent tan colored head that stays around for some time.
The aroma is slighty roasted, some fruits also present.
The taste starts with a nice bitterness and is followed by slightly roasted body, lots of coffee. Finishes with a decent bitterness.
Not my favourite Anchor, but very nice nad easily enjoyable.

Porter squisita, decisamente sopra la media, con note intense di cioccolato, caffé, malti tostati e estremamente piacevole da bere. Una volta su questi lidi californiani, non puoi che gettare l’ancora e restarci!!

Very nice Porter. Not very strong but with the right amount of coffee. The roasted malt prevails over the coffee flavor.

Black beer with huge blonde cloudy head. Aroma has surprisingly lots of dark fruits up front, like a dubbel. Underneath are more typical porter aromas like roasted malts, licorice and loafy bread. Flavor is loafy bready, roasty and licoricy with dark fruits and apple sidenotes. Has medium bitterness on the finish, leaves a licoricy aftertaste for a good while. Palate is medium full and soft with a medium strong carbonation. Good porter with interesting dark fruity notes. Enjoyable like this but could work even better if it was a bit fuller.
