look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Gorgeous rich and black color. Finger worth of a bubbly tan head with lacing started already with the receding head.
S: Pure, deep, rich smell of roasted malts and premium chocolaty sweetness lingering in the nose. Getting excited to drink now!
T: Wow. Such a superior balance of flavor. The expectations that come from the smell do not disappoint. The taste is a fine deep and dark malt, balanced so well with a sweet and slight bitter notes at the finish.
M: Soft but heavy. It seems to be sinking in my mouth.
D: This is a great beer to drink during winter season. I feel that any porter is difficult to drink in multiples. But Anchor Porter is far superior to many out there.

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.
