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.

larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2006
Small, creamy, brown head. Opaque black body. Dense, sweet, harmonic aroma of licorice and coffee. Again dense, almost sourish taste of roastiness, coffee, and lingering driness with notes of wild berries. Mouthfeel somewhat watery. Lingering sweetness with marzipan notes. A very good porter, reminiscent of Sam Smith’s Taddy Porter, but not as good.

Look black but is actually a deep Deep ruby red almost opaque with medium size short lasting fine bubbled mid tan head. Aroma is initially bready and barbyard yeast and molasses with hints of coffee and butterscotch. Chewy smooth low carb palate. Lowly sweet roasted malts mild medium bitter hops. Faint vinous and acetone as well which is surprising for such a low ABV beer. Light bitter sweet aftertaste.

Pours a huge tan head. Taste kind of tangy and sweet for some reason. You can definitely taste the anchor vibe in this beverage. Overall it tastes great with the typical coffee and more malt than an average porter. Great beer that is easy to find.

shrubber85 (11322) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Smoky cocoa malt and hops aroma. Dark black-brown color with moderate tan head. Initially a slight burnt coffee that quickly fades to creamy chocolate with a mild hops finish. Long lasting flavor. A bit on the heavy side for a porter but other than that, very good.

Black in color with a small tan head. Aroma is really nice, malty, sweet, toasty, with notes of coffee. Flavor of malt, coffee, a little chocolate. Generally sweet tasting but very well balanced. Smmoth, thick body with light carbonation. Nice, light coffee finish. An excellent porter.

morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Wow, this is a great beer and one of the best porters I’ve had. Aroma is good, but a little weak. Appearance is great; very dark reddish brown and tan head that has good lacing.

4.2
beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2006
One pint, 6 fluid oz brown bottle purchased from Whole Foods, Deerfield, IL. Black hued porter having a long-lasting creamy tan head with good lacing. Soft carbonation. Lush chocolate and roasted coffee aromas. Medium bodied with creamy smooth texture having complex vanilla, chocolate milk, and coffee flavors. Finishes dry with light lingering bitterness. Mouth coating oiliness. A very delicious delightful porter, one of my favorite ones.
