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.

W aromacie nudy, kawa ale nie za bardzo intensywna. W smaku podobni kawa, paloność, ciut kwaskowe, konkretnie wytrawne, dość wodniste. Zasadniczo nic specjalnego.

Nice, moderate chocolate and roastiness. Some dark fruit jam, prunes, cocoa beans. Silky mouthfeel, a bit too sweet but nice coffee and fruity notes. There's even some hazelnut in the medium bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 Классический портер из США. Имеет очень богатый винный вкус. Также присутствует привкус черного жженого хлеба. После глотка чувствуется легкая кислинка и сухость на языке. У пиво потрясающе красивая кофейная пена. В общем всем советую.

Full-bodied with a creamy mouth feel. Evolves in your mouth. First hits you with a very roasted , Smoky malt flavor. Then coffee and bitter chocolate and a long lasting metallic hop aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
