COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured into a pint , out of the nicely designed and labeled bottle , very dark and opaque black. Head is exellent , about 1 1/4 inch , tanish color similar to the main color of the label , and it sticks around as 1/4 inch the entire way through leaving slight lacing. Taken to the nose , smells of dark roasty malt , slight chocolate , and a hint of toffee or butterscotch. Very pleasant and welcoming. Taste is rich, hearty malt at first with a little bit of chocolate , then the whole hops kick in nice. Slight Bitter , dry finish of coffee and subtle toffee. ( not very sweet though) . Nicely carbonated and silky mouthfeel. Overall this is one great American Porter. I really like the taste of the liberal use of hops. Very dinkable.

Biroholik (246) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Kolor: Ciemnobrązowy z rubinowymi refleksami pod światło.
Piana: Beżowa, gęsta czapa. Piana zbudowana jest ze średnich oraz małych pęcherzyków powietrza, które zwartym szeregiem otaczają ścianki. Bardzo ładny lacing. Czapa bardzo długo dryfuje na powierzchni.
Zapach: Jest tutaj wszystko co powinno znaleźć się w perfekcyjnie zbalansowanym porterze: jest paloność na odpowiednim poziomie. Nie jest ona tak wysoka jak w stoutach. Jest tutaj wiśnia, lukrecja, trochę wanilii. Na koniec subtelna nuta gorzkiej czekolady.
Smak : Jest tutaj podobnie jak w zapachu. Porter ten bardziej ma wytrawne zabarwienie. Są tutaj ponownie wiśnie, lukrecja, wanilia. Po kilku łykach daje o sobie znać gorzka nuta orzecha laskowego. Paloność jest na znacznie wyższym poziomie niż w zapachu. Na finiszu kawa z mlekiem. Goryczka średnia.
Wysycenie : Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Anchor Porter to moje kolejne piwo z Browaru Anchor prosto z San Francisco. Bardzo dobry porterek. Jest bardzo gęsty, treściwy i gładki. Wszystko tutaj zagrało jak należy. Nie ma się do czego przyczepić. Klasyk jakich mało i idealny wyznacznik stylu.

Schlumpfhunter (77) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
Farbe: schwarz Schaum: braun, leicht sämig Nase: rauchig verbranntes Malz, bitter, Holz, dunkle Erde, später leicht dunkel-schokoladig. Geschmack: sehr feinperlig, mit vielen Perlen, also erst mal recht frisch auf der Zunge. Dann kommt natürlich der Rauchhammer, dann wirds aber im Abgang überraschend süß und leicht: Karamellmalz. Ist auch bitter, das merkt man am ehesten im Nachgeschmack, aber nicht negativ, da auch das karamell dableibt. Wat’n Bier!
