Anchor Porter

Anchor Porter

Ratebeer 3.85 98th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

I was so happy to find this brew at the Penny Farthing CBAW in Oak Bay. The nose is glorious with roast, vanilla, cocoa and dark chocolate. It was nicely carbonated and tingly on the tongue. The mouthfeel was medium and slightly rich. I loved the very roasted bitter chocolate and vanilla flavours.

Aftertaste +2

It lingered forever with the dry, roasted cocoa. It was not a mouth coating aftertaste. Oddly, the bigger the sip the longer it lasted.

Alcohol Content 0 5.4%

Value +1

I can see this being a staple in my fridge.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Spent part of the night playing Burn Zombie Burn on the PS3. It is a simple top down, cartoon gun wack. It was fun and well worth the $10.

Overall 8/10

This is a great porter. There is the richness, roast and chocolate that every porter lover craves.
