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.

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle- pours out a dark brown with a burnt orange head. Aroma was sour, a little rancid. Fortunately the taste didnt follow suit. Sweet black coffee with some obvious alcohol. Palate was thin and heavily carbonated. Not my cup of tea. Average.

Draught @ Albion. Dark brown with reddish tint towards light, small creamy tan head, faint roasted malt aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter mocha, toffee, cherry, vanilla beans taste, somewhat thick body, medium bitter cherry-mocha finish. Smooth and satisfying.

Una porter como las de siempre. Intensa en todos sus aspectos mas equilibrada en su conjunto. Buen encaje, buen aroma, buena cerveza en definitiva.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrn de tres dedos de grosor (rpida formacin de burbujas diminutas, aspecto cremoso y buena retencin). Carbonatacin mnima. Textura oleosa. Aroma a regaliz negro por un tubo, algo de caf, toque tostado y lpulo bastante presente. En boca se acenta aun ms el regaliz, tambin las notas a caf y un final donde el lpulo juega un papel importante (final de caf amargo, pero amargor moderado). Postgusto a regaliz.

One of my very first good beers, a friend from my youth. Dark as midnight, strong and smooth, with malty and roasted notes throughout. Light on the bubbles, an rpic, excellent example of a great, classic porter.

This beer was on Tap, fresh, brought directly from SF. It is super dark in a glass. Has a creamy one-two finger tan head. Has Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit. Has taste of bitter coffee, roasted malt ,some dark fruit. It is a full body, soft carbonation drink, with oily, a bit creamy mouthfeel. Good Porter, but you need to love this kind of the beer to enjoy it. Not very strong (5,6%)

Poured from 355 ml bottle. An excellent Porter. Decent head and lacing. Slightly under carbonated IMHO. Malty aromas. Roasted malts, chocolate flavours. Dark in color and creamy mouth feel. Well balanced body. It never gets old.

Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: light hops and vanilla. Appearance: small, light-brown initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, cola-brown body. Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and lightly acidic, smokey finish with average duration. Palate: light-to-medium bodied with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: okay.
