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.

Great Porter. Beguiling aroma. Hints of sweet liquorice, toffee, and caramel but no coffee or chocolate. Great head of lasting beige foam and beer color of black with ruby sparkles. Tastes same as aroma. Sweet but not cloying with a soft syrupy palate and noticeable bittering and finishing hops.

Low beige hue, black body, sweet fresh fruity aroma of plums, liquorice and fresh peels. Dark caramels, plums, prunes, candiced peels, dark grapes and black honey to the taste buds. Feels soft, fruity, clean, and ok body. Somewhat dry finish with more plum peels and sweet roasted dark soft malts. Delicious fruity porter . 355ml bottle @Hildr Gastrobar Tromsř.

Bottle. Pours black, tan - coloured head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, floral and slightly fruity, very pleasant overall. In taste it’s smooth, chocolate-y, slightly sweet with good hoppy aftertaste. Fantastic, complex beer.

BananaBi11 (27) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Coffee, has that pilsner taste at first sips but darker flavor. Very light for a porter, but easy drinker because of it. Enjoyed it a lot. Bought a six pack (very cheap), so will be enjoying five more!

Butelka. Barwa ciemna, brunatna z refleksami. Piana kremowa, opada do niskiej warstwy, która utrzymuje się do samego końca. W aromacie przede wszystkim czekolada i śliwka. Wyczuwalne również nuty orzechów oraz nuty palone. Wysycenie niskie, goryczka niska - symboliczna. Zbyt mało ciało, co sprawia, lekką wodnistość. Piwo jest bardzo delikatne w odczuciu.

SkillsFactory (106) - ITALY - MAY 10, 2015
Marrone scura, quasi nera con riflessi rossastri, schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di prugna e ciliegia, caffè, cacao, liquirizia e zucchero candito. Al palato esteri fruttati, liquirizia e cacao, successivamente si fa sempre più avanti il caffè tostato e una componente zuccherina che ne complesso ricorda il cappuccino. Ben carbonata, corpo medio. Ottima Porter, davvero piacevole.
