It starts in the brewhouse with a radically traditional recipe for Anchor Coffee Porter, which has been brewing since 1972. It ends up in the cellar, where they add Four Barrel Flash-Chilled Coffee– developed with Anchor especially for this beer– during secondary fermentation. The coffee used is brewed hot, then flash-chilled within 10 seconds. This proprietary method ensures the vital aromatics and key acids of a great cup of coffee are captured and preserved.
The result is a coffee porter of immense richness, intensity, boldness, and smoothness, with deep aromas and mouthfeel of fresh-roasted coffee melded with dark-roasted maltiness. Anchor Coffee Porter is a rich, smooth Porter with a roasty malt backbone, a bold coffee aroma and complex layers of chocolate, nuts and spices.
