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.

Had this many times, but I guess I’ve never rated it. Deep brown pour with a creamy white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee beans and cocoa powder. Good carbonation and creamy mouthfeel with flavors that mimic the aroma. Touch of a dry earthy finish. Great easy drinking Porter.

Been drinking this since the 70’s. Took years for us to come up with comparable brews. I have no idea how to describe brews like most of you folks. I have been drinking craft beers since the Reagan administration. I know what I like and this is good stuff.

This is probably the best porter I’ve tasted. Pours a very dark brown it a decent head. Great malt taste, background of coffee, bitter, smoked. No bitter or hoppy aftertaste, super smooth.
