Our brewery has a long history of producing a world-class porter, and we’ve done our classic recipe one better! It’s brewed with extra Caramel and Chocolate malts to give a rich, roasty character and then hand-finished with Tettnang for a wonderful hop aroma and flavor. Try it while you can, Pocono Caramel Porter is only a winter seasonal and like the winter snow, it doesn’t last long!

I had high hopes for this one, but it let me down a bit. Black pour. Very slim hint of caramel on nose and palate. Pretty much your standard porter. Rated 3/22/03

Smells a lot of caramel and toffee. Pours a nice dark dark brown with a tight fizzy head. Very nice roasted malt flavoring that leaves a sweet caramel taste on the palate. This is definitely something that I look forward to buying again.

Very dark color, but with a reddish tint to it. What a great toasty smell. Tastes as good as it looks, slightly creamy with mostly a chocolate taste and just slightly bitter. Well balanced with the caramel just enough to take the edge away from the bitter. Very surprisingly good.

Bottle sampled. Pours dark with a decent size brown head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, coffee, sweet. The flavor is sweet, caramel, chocolate, coffee, mild bitterness in the finish.

Sweet burnt sugar with hints of coffee - lots more aroma than I had expected. Chewy, but at the same time a little fizzy like most of this brewery’s beers to my palate. Plenty of caramel and coffee in the taste, mostly dry finish (more hops than I thought?).

(Bottle) Pours a very dark amber color with a brown head. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Toasted malts introduced caramel, chocolate, and nutty notes. Not a bad beer, but missing the balance that would make this a very good brew.

Really a very pleasant surprise of a beer. Smells nicely of caramel. Jet ink black; stout color. Much much darker tha you’d think drinking it from the bottle. A very solid not sweet, caramel and chocolate porter. I like these "pocono" beers.

jzzbassman (1583) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Poured very dark, almost black with a rich head. The aroma reminded me of an old fashioned chocolate malt. Flavor was very nice, aside from a lactic/ citric edge to the finish.

This is one of my favorite beers, I’ve had a couple dozen so far. This bottle poured jet black with a dark brown head like someone sticking a staw into dark hot chocolate and blowing bubbles... A great dry, roasty flavor all the way though, the caramel malts there, not too intense, just right. A very good porter I’m looking forward to trying this on draft.

Very dark even inky black, with a small dark brown head. Dark chocolate and sweet sugars dominate this brew. It leaves a rich mocha taste on your lips. This beer is very rich, sweet and heavy. A very nice Porter, Enjoyed this one at Electro in OKC
