This new release from California icon Anchor Brewing is a nod to the building's history as a coffee roastery prior to becoming the brewery. A collaboration with local roaster Four Barrel Coffee, it's made from a base of Anchor's standard Porter, brewed since 1972, with Four Barrel Flash-Chilled Coffee added during secondary fermentation. The resulting brew is a selection that's not shy on upfront coffee aroma and flavor, with supporting tones of roasted malt, toasted peanut skin and dark-chocolate caramel. The palate is full and smooth, with ample carbonation to keep the rich, sweet flavors in check.
