Anchor Coffee Porter, an American Porter by Anchor Brewing

Share This Review

Anchor Coffee Porter is an American Porter brewed by Anchor Brewing, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The porter pours a mahogany brown with no light shining through. It’s capped by a thick light brown head that shows fine retention. A few streaks of residue cling to the glass, dissolving to a soapy collar.

Aroma

Considering the name of the brew, it’s no surprise that the aroma is dominated by coffee roast. There’s just a hint of chocolaty sweetness backing the nose.

Flavor

Hop forward palate begins with a floral taste that’s blended with an earthy lemon tea. That mild bitterness crests towards a robust flavor of black coffee roast and finishes with more flowery hops and lemon. There are subtle notes of dark chocolate, raisin, nut, and cinnamon that appear in the background.

Mouthfeel

The feel is dry but lively on the tongue with a medium body and medium-high carbonation.

Overall

The Anchor Coffee Porter could use a bit more heft in its feel and a little less carbonation but it’s within the expectations for the style. Its aroma is pleasant enough but where this brew really shines is in its palate. Coffee lovers will certainly approve and its flavorful palate is complex enough for discerning beer connoisseurs as well.
