Pours black with nice brown head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, plums and cherries. Sweet with some acidic notes and pleasant carbonation. Very good porter.

Oh, that’s good. The fruits sit up high in the flavour - ingredients from a great fruit crumble, with blackcurrant, cherries and a hint of plum as well. Roasted malts sit underneath, with some vanilla and subtle bitterness. Very dark, with a small white head. Body medium thick but smooth and easy to drink.

Aroma intenso de baunilha. Um pouco de mato e café no fundo.
Belo creme denso e castanho. Negra e opaca como a noite.
Ferrugem e defumação forte no sabor. Um pouco de caramelo, mas bastante amarga.
Retrogosto forte e amargo. Bastante persistente.
Boa mesmo essa cerveja!

Pours perfect. Aroma is coffee chocolate and very slight metallic. Body is fairly light and goes down very smooth. Flavor is interesting - not much chocolate or coffee. More metal than anything.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown, almost black color with minimal tan head. Aroma of rich quite sweet dark malts, some hops. Taste is dark fruit, followed by lots of chocolate. Didn’t quite stand up to my expectations.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bang on porter that tastes like it sounds in the history books. Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, hops, coffee, and plums. Tastes plumy, vinous, roasted malts and dark fruits. Has the perfect porter body that is low in carbonation, very smooth and not too heavy. Has a bitter malt aftertaste and a touch of sourness. This beer was fun.

Almost black beer with a nice long lasting creamy head. Aroma is very malty, sweet syrupy, caramel, roast, raisins maybe and decent hoppiness. Taste is caramel and bready malts, a bit sweet, with bittering hops. Smooth. Really good porter.

Damn what a good Porter. As black as brown can get while still being brown, topped with a thin medium tan noggin. Smells of burnt toffee, dried cherries, raisins, molasses and toast. Bittersweet is the name of this Anchor’s game, the flavours play very interestingly on the tongue the whole time. It has a thinner body and livelier zip to it than I am used to for the style but it a welcome change. All I need is a pint a day.
