3.43/5 rDev -16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75
Pours a very beautiful deep black color and is covered wit ha decent tan colored head that stays around for some time.
The aroma is slighty roasted, some fruits also present.
The taste starts with a nice bitterness and is followed by slightly roasted body, lots of coffee. Finishes with a decent bitterness.
Not my favourite Anchor, but very nice nad easily enjoyable.

12 oz. bottle, with code on the back label BNF it appears. A new beer to me from Anchor Brewing Co., acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. Expectations are good based on this beer's high praise.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a dark woodsy brown; opaque black in the glass with just a hint of mahogany showing near the edges.Four big fluffy fingers of creamy chocolate mocha head. Leaves behind nice rings of fluffy lace. Looks very nice.
S - Smell is of barley roast, notes of chocolate / coffee, earthy yeast, brown bread, oatmeal / caramel malt character, and lots of vinous dark fruit character - cherries, figs, plums, dates.
T - Taste follows the nose - barley roast, brown bread, molasses, cola, notes of chocolate / caramel malt, and maybe just a hint of indistinct spicing present, but I could be imagining it. I think it's really there, however.
M - Feel is smooth and creamy. Silky and chocolately. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Roasty and bitter on the finish.
Overall, a very well-made porter, and it definitely carries on that Anchor vibe very well. An iconic example of a porter, and deservedly so, but I still don't think it holds up when compared to beers like Founders Porter. Recommended; I would have it again.
Anchor Porter ---4/5.
