COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
San Francisco’s 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.

ozzatoadisback (235) - ITALY - FEB 1, 2018
Pours an attractive black with a couple of fingers of dense mocha head that shows good retention and some lacing. A rather simple but clean and intense aroma shows roasted malts, slight coffee and vivid red fruits among a general soft feel. Taste is very much the same and maybe a bit less bright than the aroma suggested. Overall medium sweet and medium bitter with neither standing out, maybe a slight bitter edge in a quite dry finish. Light to medium bodied with light to medium carbonation resulting in a semi-creamy feel. Overall a well crafted porter with a bit less roasted malts than usual.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Slatkast miris više na čokoladu nego karamel. Okus slatkast opet čokoladast malo kave, srednje gaziran. Vrlo malo gorkast. Solidan Porter.

midovark (1263) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2018
0.35 l bottle @ home. Pours pitch black with everlasting beige head. Nose is mainly sweet with distincitve notes of fruits, something that reminds me of truffle, some faint cinnamon and roasted malts. Basically the same notes appear in taste, wrapped in a beautiful creamy mouthfeel. Short to medium bittersweet finish (roasted notes and cocoa), light body and average carbo. Good one, full of flavours especially for a relaitvely low ABV.

poech73 (543) - Braine-Le-Comte, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2017
On sale at Beer Market La Louvière :: Californian classic Porter >> Très beau Porter savoureux. Nez classique torréfié épicée à la réglisse avec une petite amertume minérale et poivrée. Bouche complète ronde au maltage légèrement biscuité livrant un lointain goût de noisette. Finale moyennement amère fruitée et minérale moyennement sèche. La réglisse apporte beaucoup de saveurs et d'équilibre en livrant une sensation aigre-douce désaltérante cependant trop présente qui écœure un peu trop le palais. Arrière goût poudreux cacaoté.

Lovely Porter big, huge mouthfeel, great finish, probably suffers a bit on price in the UK but an outstanding example of the type.
