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.

Aroma seems roasted cherry. Another beer that goes down great! Smooth, rich dark beer with deep rosted flavor & coffee & chocolate tones. Fullers is better

(12 oz botte) Pours almost opaque ruby with a tan frothy head. Leaves a pretty solid lacing throughout the glass. Tastes of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts and finishes with slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit oily but not unpleasant. I like this mix although it is a bit sweet.

Dark brown with cola coloured head. I always passed up on this brew figuring it was average. It was pretty good though. I was surprised. Some roasted aromatic flavours covering a pine/earth tone with a hint of bitter-sweet chocolade. Palate settled nice. I also felt some licorace hints in there. A nice all around porter. Ill have to try some more!

Poured a very dark brown with a reddish tint when held to light. Thin tan head. Aroma was lightly roasted with a touch of piney hops. Flavors of roasted malt (but not as roasty as some other brands tried this tasting) fruity and mildly hoppy. Medium bodied with a clean smooth finish.

What a pleasant surprise this porter was. Excellent flavor, hops are present but not overbearing. Very good and highly recommended.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 impressive compared to an Anchor Steam. Flavor was just right to my taste not overbearing roasty and yet still substantial. Finish is smooth. .

Not a bad porter. Dark brown, not black. Smoothened out roastiness and coffee.

Really like this beer. Poured dark brown with just a hint of red. Head was near perfect dark tan. Couldnt identify the aroma, but red licorice came to mind. Flavor is smooth with a strong smoke finish. Only slightly acetic (which I like).Very nice.
