Pours with a huge cream/tan colored, long-lasting head. Wonderful sweet chocolate aroma with hints of roasted malt. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate flavour to start with bitter roasted flavors to finish. A classic American porter. galietti (12) - USA - SEP 10, 2001

A great porter - rich and creamy, even though it has a slightly oily mouthfeel. You want coffee? You got it - tons of it. Lots of depth of flavor. Did I mention I really like this porter? johnson2020 (79) - Canton, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2001
Beautiful black color and a creamy head. Nice sweet/bitter balance. Drink on the slightly warmer side. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2001
Once again the anchor brewing company has crafted another fine brew. I do not usually enjoy porters, but this was a pure pleasure to drink.

Normally, the description printed on a beer's label isn't worth the ink that was used to print it. Well, Anchor has delivered: 'The deep black color, the thick creamy head and the intensely rich flavor...have earned this delicious and unique brew a worldwide reputation for outstanding quality.' They hit the nail on the head. Opaque with a thick, creamy, tan head and delicious malt and chocolate flavor. Heavy and smooth like a stout, with a bitter, rich chocolate aftertaste hinting at yeast, which reminds me this is a porter and not a stout. Excellent. dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2001
Really good once it warmed up a bit. Had lots of nice malty chocolatey flavors. Dried my mouth out a bit too much though which i didnt care for. fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 22, 2001
At first this was terribly bitter, but then it warmed up alittle and all was well in the world. Enjoyable malty taste with slight hops foundation. Medium mouthfeel and a full, sharp taste. ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - AUG 22, 2001
A nice robust porter- one of Anchor's better brews.

I like to test porters by drinking them warm - just a quirk of mine, I guess - and this one holds up spectacularly. Creamy, spicy, a fine roasted feel.
