Anchor Porter: I was looking for a new Porter to try, and the Anchor Porter came up as highly rated. I was able to get a 6-pack for $10, which is reasonable these days. Black as pitch with a tan head settled on top. Not much in the aroma department. This beer starts out smooth, then an abundance of flavor hits the palate: anise, molasses, burnt sugar and almost any brown sweet thing you can think of. It was too much. I was hoping for a Porter that would be more easy drinking than statement in your face beer. Worth a try, but the ODell Cutthroat Porter is still standing as my favorite Porter.
