Beer Tasting: Anchor Porter

This porter is from Anchor, brewed in San Francisco, CA. This beer was purchased from Total Wine & More in Claymont, Delaware at room temperature and refrigerated in the low 40s since then. It was allowed to warm approximately 10 degrees before serving. Bryan's Notes:
  • dark as night
  • hefty tannish-cream head
  • rich, toffee, molasses aroma; bit of alcohol presence
  • fig, caramel, a bit woody
  • somewhere between medium and fuller bodied, but not overwhelming; very nice
  • serves better on the cooler side, but not ice cold
  • loses some of its flavor as it warms
  • a pleasant reminder of fun times in San Francisco
