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.

Bottle. Pours midnight black with no head. Aroma of cold coffee, baking chocolate, amaretto, and Gran Mariner? Huh. Flavor of iced coffee, baking chocolate, skim milk. Aftertaste has long coffee bitterness, hazelnut, whole milk. Body is nice and thick, but is a bit sticky in the back of the throat as well. Yea, this is a bit bitter for my personal porter taste, but pretty darn good.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Jet black pour. It had a thin brown head when pored from the bottle. Smooth roast chocolate flavour. Slight bitterness in taste. Loved it

On sale at Beer Market La Louvière :: Californian classic Porter >> Très beau Porter savoureux. Nez classique torréfié épicée à la réglisse avec une petite amertume minérale et poivrée. Bouche complète ronde au maltage légèrement biscuité livrant un lointain goût de noisette. Finale moyennement amère fruitée et minérale moyennement sèche. La réglisse apporte beaucoup de saveurs et d'équilibre en livrant une sensation aigre-douce désaltérante cependant trop présente qui écœure un peu trop le palais. Arrière goût poudreux cacaoté.

Dark brown colour with large brown foam. Aromas of hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows with notes of chewy toffee. Palate, medium bodybwith smooth creamy texture leaving sweet finish. Taste, sweet sugary hot chocolate with cream and cocoa. Overall, lovelybsweet wintery beer, maybe tad too light but awesome.

Lovely Porter big, huge mouthfeel, great finish, probably suffers a bit on price in the UK but an outstanding example of the type.

Porter Americana con matices de chocolate,regaliz y caf�.En vista de marr�n oscuro a casi negro .Paladar con entrada algo dulce,pero enseguida va a su ser con un amargo entre de las maltas y los l�pulos. Algo astringente y con acidez en su punto

Bottle at home in Beer Hawk advent calendar. Perfect pour and a very handsome beer in the glass. The flavour was, as expected, all about those roasted and toasted malts with lots of biscuit and bitterness. It also had a very smooth mouthfeel that was given every assistance by the beer being served at the perfect temperature. A clinically well made porter that I thoroughly enjoyed.

sam_uk93 (64) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2017
Pours a very dark brown with a hint of red, and a dark tan head. Aroma is butterscotch, caramel, malt. Taste is a rather sweet up front, leading to a nice full, dark middle with some rasin, smoke, with a light bitterness on the end, that lingers. Medium to thin bodied, medium to low carbonation. Really good!

Benters (96) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2017
Pours a very dark brown with red highlights and thin tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, some coffeee and delicate fruitiness with some new world hops present too. Taste is a smooth, a really nice blend of roasted malt flavours with some caramel and more of a creamy dark chocolate taste than any coffee-like flavours. Nicely balanced with hop bitterness. Really enjoyable Porter.

Bottle 04-2019. Z: utlenienie dominuje. Mocne śliwki, kawa w tle. S: czekolada, śliwki, dalej stęchły chmiel albo łodyga, innymi słowy nieprzyjemna goryczka od chmieli.. Po ogrzaniu jeszcze popiół. Mało ciała. Chciałoby się sprawdzić na świeżo.
