Anchor Porter ....

Today's beer is the Porter from Anchor Brewing Company.  Apparently this porter has been around for a while: first brewed in 1972 and first bottled in 1974.  Twelve ounce bottle.  Their web site shows 5.6% ABV.

The Anchor poured with a medium head; one that was a nice darker brown.  The color  is a very blackish brown and I couldn't see any light through it in the glass.  There was something in the aroma that made me think of sugary baked goods.  On the first sip, I got a hint of brown sugar.  The beer isn't really sweet, but there are some definite notes of brown sugar or caramel.  Some nice hops and malt.  I would give it a medium on the strength-o-meter.  Almost no bitterness.  The aftertaste is mild, with just a touch of the caramel notes.
