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.

Anchor Porter will always hold a special place in my life. From the time I was in high school, every Xmas eve my best friend and I would drink the Anchor Porters and Anchor Steams from his fathers fridge during our family parties. The smell of the porter and the vision of that label bring back wonderful memories. It is not the best porter that I have ever consumed, but it is the one I love the most.

Dark red-brown with one finger beige-brown head. Aroma is roasted dark malts, chocolate, orange, light citrus and coffee beans. Taste is roasted malts, bitter coffee, dark chocolate, orange and a light uplifting citrus twist. Medium mouthfeel, light to medium carbonation and rich malty aftertaste with a hint of banana.

Dark colar color with a fluffy light brown head of foam. Intense and lush aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, roasted barley, and burnt caramel. Has a nutty edge to it as well. Very rich and satifying as a desset beer.

oobawa (1082) - 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. Textures 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.
