San Franciscos 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.

Oh, yes: bubblegum in porter, what a fantastic idea! No, porter is refreshing more than ever. Innovation, but at the same time traditional - which I like so much. Dark coffee colour with very nice caramel nuance top. Medium carbonation, sticky and creamy texture. Hardwood, chocolate malts, prune and salted ripe fruits. Peace of art.

Bubblegum in the aroma with some intense spruce bitterness, sort of a funky old fashioned taste, not really an everyday beer for me.

Bottle from Beer Hawk. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Pours a thick dark brown with a tanned head. Tastes of hops, chocolate and treacle with a chocolatey palette. May be my new favourite porter.

emandkey (81) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JAN 7, 2017
How: bottle. Aroma: Malty, roasted coffee beans, burned toast. Appearance: Dark black colour with small brown not for long lasting head. Taste: Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, a bit sour. Palate: Medium to heavy body, soft carbonation, slick to sticky texture, with a bit abrupt finish. Overall: Delicious porter with burned coffee beans aftertaste, but couldnt recommend more than one bottle to drink.

Very good, really enjoyed it. As compared to Founders, which I still prefer, I felt that Anchors body was a little "thinner" and the head not as thick.

AntonyWilson (248) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 29, 2016
355ml Bottle: Pours black with garnet highlights and thick creamy tan head that lingers. Amazing aroma of prunes, dates, brown sugar and caramel. Beautiful flavours of caramel and other dark sugars with a slight roasty note which is not distracting at all but rather gives the beer a dark chocolate note. Medium to high body, medium carbonation. Slightly higher on the IBUs than most porters, however, it helps balance out the big flavours. Overall this has to be the best porter i have had!
