PoUrsula opaque black. The huge khaki head remains as a thick cap on top and leaves thick curtains of lace.

The smell is a balanced mixture of coffee, chocolate, wheat bread and faint vanilla.

The taste is also well balanced: chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a slightly bitter finish.

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Well balanced is how I'd describe this brew. All the aforementioned flavors and aromas working together in harmony with positive results. A very impressive American porter.

After having mixed experiences with other Anchor products, I decided to pick this up in a mix and match. Its a porter, so it can't be that bad.

Appearance - Pours a deep brown to almost black color with a thin half finger head. Pours almost the consistency of syrup, looks so thick and creamy. Leaves a decent lace on the side of the glass as well. Pours much like a porter is supposed to pour.

Smell - The nose is magnificent! Crazy amounts of dark fruits, coffee, malts, molasses, so complex. If the taste is anywhere near as good as the nose, this will be one incredible brew.

Taste - The taste is even better than the nose. I knew this beer was going to be a game changer from the first drink. Dark fruits are the biggest part of the beer, paired with smooth molasses, malts, coffee, and caramel.This is seriously one of the most magnificent tasting beers I have ever had in my entire life.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, big, rich, creamy. Finishes so smooth and thick, its unreal.

Overall - One of the overall best beers I have ever had. Enough said. It is incredible, oustanding, unrealistically good.
