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. adrian910ss (2604) - Doylestown, PA, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Pours a black color with a small beige lacing for a head. Aroma is malty with roasted coffee overtones. Flavor is malty with roasted coffee and dark chocolate taste. Excellent porter. hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Pours black with a finger thick tan head. Aroma of malt and slight chocolate coffee. Medium to full mouthfeel with a bitter finish. Good porter. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
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. It’s just all done very well. A fine porter IMO Habanero (4908) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 Light brown foamy head. Dark brown in the colour. Aroma with malt, grains and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, malt, chocolate and rich. Bitter finish. A very pleasent porter.

deep black color, lite thin brown head. malty chocolate and coffee aroma. thick and full bodied. lots of carbonation. little oily. 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. SkyinBrian (430) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 11, 2005
pours black with tanish head. smell is rich and roasty. taste is of mocha cut by the hoppiness. rich and creamy, but very drinkable. this is a great porter. NachlamSie (3597) - 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 I’ve had. It’s a creamy vanilla taste with the roasty backbone of a porter. Refreshing and sturdy at the same time. Solid lacing on this one. cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2005
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.
