4.03/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12 oz. bottle
Poured a very dark brown, almost black with a small creamy had that dissipated quickly. Distinct lacing. So dark, it looks like cola in the glass.
Smell is quite sweet surprisingly with a nice cocoa/coffee hint. Also had a hint of a red wine smell which was quite unusual.
Taste is chocolatey with a hint of wine as well. Very unique. Nice bitter finish.
Mouthfeel was quite smooth and enjoyable.
Drinkability was quite high. Nothing too filling which surprised me a bit for how dark this porter was.
Overall, this was a great porter. Anchor puts out another excellent product and I would highly recommend it.

3.56/5 rDev -13.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Finger worth of head on the pour which settled in to the edges of the glass while drinking. Above average active carbonation for the style. Some sticky lacing left behind.
Smell: Mossy hops mesh well with a bright malt sweetness. Espresso notes with some dark chocolate bitterness. There is an amber malt, toffee like sweetness on the body. A familiar yeast profile of Anchor beers shows up and adds a unique layer for a porter.
Taste: Toffee, Oats, and a unique yeast brightness really blasts on the front. Mossy hops and untamed oak opens up on the body. The finish is just the body slowly dying out with hits on oak and toffee popping up occasionally.
Mouthfeel: Much brighter and active on the palate then I expected. Carbonation fits. Some coffee ground dryness is left behind.
Overall: This was really something different. I expected the stout-ish porter that some many brewers are making but this is tough to really put a finger on. Odd but worth a shot.
