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.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 My first experience with porters, and hopefully not my last. Sharp smell of coffee and dark malt, some molasses upon opening the bottle. The taste reminds me vaguely of the horehound candy I had as a child, but that is a GOOD thing. The slight head disappears quickly, but I like that about this one. It’s balanced and smooth, almost syrupy in body. Overall, a good experience.

One of the best American porters. I liked the balance and the smoothness. Unlike Sierra's not too strong with the hop finish. I would recomend this as a fine example of the style.

After viewing the rest of labattboys ratings, I realized why he rated this so low - he doesn't know good beer. This beer is delicious, robust, and malty....pure goodness.

Hated it. I can't believe people actually like the taste of crap like this.

Excellent porter! A worthy working man's brew . . . and a fine looking bottle to boot!

nice opaque color, with tannish head that quickly fades. there's a suprisingly weak aroma for an american porter, mainly coffee with an alcoholic tinge. moderately hoppy, lending a pleasantly dry finish. the malt flavors are nice and earthy. this one improves significantly as it warms. great for after you come out of the cold.

Nice roasty malt taste, slightly nutty with lingering pleasant palate. The alcohol tint offsets nicely the slight sweetness in the body, creating in the whole a well-crafted porter that is good enough to be enjoyed on its own.

Alcoholic nose. As a result, starts with sharp tint of alcohol. Medium-bodied with a nice dark chocolate mid. Finishes clean with a mild aftertaste.
