COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very good looking - with a nice brownish head leaving filigree on the glass. A porter full of taste with coffee and chocolate in the foreground. A lasting aftertaste.

A Mes rate: Ok its pretty straight forward but very good all the same. Typical porter in looks, aroma and taste for me so I shall refrain from saying too much about malty chocolate, coffee and the fairly full mouthfeel. Nothing really stands out as being unusual or special. Its just all done very well. A fine porter IMO

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 11, 2005
(Bottle) Body like black coffee, head tannish, rocky. So-so lacing. Aroma of molasses, vanilla, something floral also. Tastes pretty sweet, surprising for a porter. Mild coffee flavor also, some faint chocolate. Mouthfeel smooth, lightly fizzy. Kind of too sweet for me.

NachlamSie (3383) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2005
bottle. Anchor porter is a deep, near-black opaque red with a great frothy, dense head. Sweet cream aroma, very crisp, with a bit of coffee. The flavor is identifiableu from any other porter Ive had. Its a creamy vanilla taste with the roasty backbone of a porter. Refreshing and sturdy at the same time. Solid lacing on this one.

A truly excellent porter. It has been several years since I had it and I am very glad it is back in my area. It is hopier than I remember both in aroma and flavor. I love the blend of hops and roasted malt. Rich, smooth, a little sweet, hoppy with a lingering finish. Highly recomended.
