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.

Bière de San Francisco. Bière très foncée avec une belle mousse et de grosses bulles. robe couleur café qui tire au bordeaux. Arômes de café et de caramel bien rôti. Arrière goût de mal rôti. Bulles fines et qui durent bien. Un gros coup de coeur.

Dark brown pour with a red glow and thin tan layer of a head. Roasted malts up front for aroma. Also caramel, coffee beans, and hoppiness in there too, along with brown breadcrust and burnt popcorn kernel. Over medium bitterness, soft to medium sweet. Medium body with the same Co2. Extremely tasty porter. Haven't figured out all the aromas it's throwing at me.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Pours black coffie with 2 fingers of tan head. Excellent lacing. Smells sweet malted barley and caramel. Taste is malty with mild bitter hops finish. ABV is a bit low for a porter but its a good beer.

Very good Porter. Nice choice. My recommendation to try with dry meat. Our company prefer such a dark beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Jun 2007

Purchased at Liquor Shed in Casper.

This pours from 12oz bottle a very dark brown with a small tannish head of foam. It shrinks to an island in the middle and it has good lacing.

The smell has a lot of chocolate and sweet malt with just a whiff of some hoppy goodness.

The taste is very big and very nice. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt and some good coffee notes as well. Smooth yet full flavoured. Swishing the beer in my mouth, I get a more pronounced hop bitterness that really balances and goes well with the sweet start that I got. Man...this is a *great* Porter. The mouthfeel is elegant and the carbonation is just right and the finish has a nice bitter zing to it. I haven't bought a sixer of this in years and that makes me shake my head in disbelief.

Bottom line: This is a world class American Porter that just about anyone can find in the US. Highly recommended!!

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Smagt på Rudis Beer bar i Chania. Sort og lidt tyk i det. Karamel og malt i næsen. Sødme, bitterhed og fylde i munden. En af de bedste porter til dato.
