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. OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2006
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. gunnfryd (14807) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2006

pours almost black with brown/white frothy head and long lacing. aroma is roasted, a touch of sweetness malt and slightly nutty. taste followed suit with a some sweet syrup tones. decent but thought it was a little light, would have enjoyed more substance. CMUBEERMAN (440) - - JAN 12, 2006
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.

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. BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2006
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. Ron (3918) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 6, 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. 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.
