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.

oobawa (1318) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2017
UPDATED: APR 1, 2017 Pours a beautiful, welcoming black with a massive dark beige head bubbling up and leaving ample lace. Nose is milk chocolate with a modest piney hop undertone. Tastes lovely, a wonderful throwback porter less obsessed with giant chocolate and roasted notes and more interested in a subtle, fruity character. Chocolate sweetness meets a cherry-laced gentle acidity, while a mild mocha backbone leads into a easygoing but dry fade. Texture’s to die for, creamy and smooth and begging for another sip. Just an all-around great anytime brew.

Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough. Black with an extremely thin off-white head. Sweet nose, lesser but still sweet dark-malt taste, with a gentle smoothness to it.

Botella de 33cl. Aromas como de melaza y regaliz. Textura oleosa, con cuerpo, carbonatación débil. Sabor a café y regaliz, algo dulce. Final amargo y persistente. Una de las buenas, buenas

Una porter como las de siempre. Intensa en todos sus aspectos mas equilibrada en su conjunto. Buen encaje, buen aroma, buena cerveza en definitiva.

kaserov (690) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (rápida formación de burbujas diminutas, aspecto cremoso y buena retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura oleosa. Aroma a regaliz negro por un tubo, algo de café, toque tostado y lúpulo bastante presente. En boca se acentúa aun más el regaliz, también las notas a café y un final donde el lúpulo juega un papel importante (final de café amargo, pero amargor moderado). Postgusto a regaliz.

One of my very first good beers, a friend from my youth. Dark as midnight, strong and smooth, with malty and roasted notes throughout. Light on the bubbles, an rpic, excellent example of a great, classic porter.
