The Anchor Porter is GOOD! The beer pours a dark opaque with nice tan head that is lacing. The smell is not as strong as other porters, there is subtle hints of malt and earth which are pleasent. The taste is a very smooth and well balanced porter that has a clean finish. Beer starts with a sweet caramelly malt that slowly turns in slightly bitter. The mouthfeel is medium body with smooth carbonation. Overall it is one fine porter.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Deep amber/red against the light. Thick, creamy, dark tan, lasting head with good retention and good legs.

Smell: Caramel sweet malts dominate the initial aroma. A hint of chocolate adds a nice complement to the malts.

Flavor: The flavor starts with a noticeable malty-sweet presence. The flavor turns to a more chocolate/roast flavor as it finishes. Moderately dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-high body that coats your mouth with a good, creamy texture. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: This is one of my favorite porters. Smooth and crisp but still a strong flavor to it. Very easy drinking due to its low ABV but there is enough going on in the beer to make me want to come back for more. Something I can sip on year round and enjoy in any climate, but particularly on a cold winter night.
