First, I’m going to give you the brewers description as taken from their website at anchorbrewing.com.
Anchor Porter is a unique dark brew, which was introduced by Anchor in the early 1970’s. Anchor Porter, like all of Anchor Brewing Company’s products, is brewed with only natural ingredients. Specially roasted dark malts are used, along with a top-fermenting yeast. The brew is hopped at a very high rate, and is naturally carbonated to produce an intensely rich flavor and thick creamy head. The rich flavor of Anchor Porter has earned this delicious and unique brew a worldwide reputation for outstanding quality. We use specially roasted malts, a top-fermenting yeast, and only fresh whole hops, which are added liberally. All this combines to produce a rich and intense flavor with subtle notes of chocolate, toffee and coffee.
This 12 oz. bottle clocks in at 5.6% ABV.
I really, really like this brew. I have had several Porters over the last few years and this one has to be near the top of ones I have tried thus far. It’s perfect for those late Autumn and Winter days and evenings. It’s easily drinkable and it’s a brew that I will have to visit every year at some point or another. I want to thank Anchor for brewing this tasty beer.
Score: 4.5 out of 5.
