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.

I chose Anchor Porter as my 100th rating as this is a beer close to my heart... one in which all porters seem to fail in comparison. Pours a deep, blackberry/red-brown with a large, tan, souffle of a head that falls slowly and softly leaving excellent lacing. Heavy malt aromas are dark chocolate and dark fruits, with a light alcohol presence. The full-bodied flavor balances bitter coffee and semi-sweet chocolate, leaving a light tingle of alcohol to dry the mouth... which causes you to open another...

Very solid and smooth porter. Nice roasty body with just a touch of chocolate sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

Je ruikt de koffie en chocolade smaak meteen. Een diep zwart bierje met een bruine schuimkraag die vrij snel verdwenen is. Smaak in zijn klasse gewoon goed koffie, chocolade, zoet maar ook vrij bitter. Kortom het is een porter met een geweldige koffie en gebrande moutsmaak die lekker blijft hangen en dat allemaal met maar 5,6% procent alcohol. Het verdient hiermee dan ook met recht een plekje aan de bovenkant van het bierspectrum.

Bottle. Opaque deep brown to black, moderate capuccino coloured head. The aroma is roasted malts, chicory, burnt cake, caramel, bread, dried fruit. Complex. Medium body. Soft carbo. Medium dry taste. Dark malts dominate. Fruit esters go along. Minor chicory, coffee, roast, light bitterness. Complex again. Very good.

355ml bottle. Quasi black colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, mostly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Slightly fruity and dark malty aroma, some chocolate, hints of plum. Taste is slightly roasty, chocolately dark malty, some malty spiciness, sweet-ish fruity hints of plum and morello; smooth, soft, silky palate.

butelka do 11.2015 w smaku wodniste, jest troche mlecznej czekolady, w aromacie prawie nic sie nie dzieje, pianka ładna utrzymuje sie do konca, kiepsko... poszukam butelki z nowszych warek, bo na ta chwile oceny nie rozumiem.

Lots of caramel and chocolate in the aroma. Lovely creamy two finger off-white head. Jet black. Taste has loads of dark chocolate and toastiness, with a very slight hop bitterness on the finish. More than lived up to its high reputation. Very very nice beer.

rodsquad (243) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2017
Bottle from Fountainhall Wines Stonehaven. Aromas smooth coffee, sweet toffee, soft oak cask and plenty of chocolate. Flavour has a lovely coffee front, a soft earthiness that builds with a light smoky finish. A soft full body with a dry sharp sparkle. Lovely smooth tones with an earthy bitterness. A very fine dark smoky beer.
