I can say that it's one of the most interesting and complex porters that I've tried. I thought it had much more of a coffee and chocolate flavor than most porters (and even some stouts), and I appreciated that.
The funny thing was, as soon as I tasted the beer it reminded me of another beer, but I couldn't think of which one.
My wife asked to try it and, after doing so, replied that it "Tastes like Guinness."
At first I scoffed, but then I realized she was right. The sourness I've come to know in Guinness is very much prevalent in Anchor Porter. Both beers have that twangy/sour quality about them.
This is all to say that I enjoyed it.
