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.

A lovely lovely beer. A roasty coffee, aroma with a hint of leather. Appearance is, black and frothy - full head. Taste is chocolatey and sweet but followed by a coffee type bitter aftertaste. Beautiful balance. Creamy, full body, soft carbonation - you dont drink this, you chew it. Nice

The beer looks great. It sure looks like a porter. The color of the beer is a beautiful dark ruby red, almost black. The beer looks quite clear. On top of the beer a nice layer of brown foam is formed. The majority of the foam collapses, leaving a lovely creamy and soft drape. The smell of the beer is good. It is a good porter smell. There are nice roasted malts in the front, containing aromas of chocolate, some licorice. It is nice. It contains a tiny acidic touch as well, maybe it is a fruity touch of the hops? There is a lovely bitterness to the smell aswel. Not bad. The taste of the beer is pretty much the same as the smell. Nice bitter toasted malt, slightly savoury roast, liquorice, some caramel in the back. It is a bit stronger than the smell. It is in good balance. It contains a bit more liquorice flavours than most porters (at least, the ones Ive had). I like this one to. The palate is fine. Medium body, low amount of carbonation, nice smooth texture. The finish of the beer is nice. There is a nice bitter coffee taste. Good one.

Faathoven (101) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - MAR 2, 2017
Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, coffee beans, cocoa, nuts. Flavour quite the same with coffee forward and some dark chocolate. Finish is dry and roasty with some astringency. Medium body and thin texture. Enjoyable after all but there are lots of better porters out there.

Good beer. Complex with rich notes of burnt coffee beans, nuts, licorice. The strong bitter taste overpowers the flavors but this does add a nice final dimension. The bitter after taste is very long. Nice colour and smooth light carbonation. Love the start, dont care for the finish.
