From bottle. Roasty, toasty, scorched malt notes. Nutty with vanilla and light hops. Dark brown-black with creamy light tan lacing head. Medium body and carbonation. Starts medium dry with roasted barley, chocolate, vanilla, and light smoke. Medium bitter hops at the finish, with carbonic tang. Nutty bitter after.

bottle thanks to cheap (thanks buddy). Another pleasant surprise, pours a dark black. aroma of slight chocolate and coffee. balanced off slightly, some bitterness and malt, (little hops flavor) thin feel, lacking a bite from a porter. But, easy to drink and pleasant.

EithCubes (5103) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle, BB Mar 31, 2014. Nose is heavily roasty with some chocolate, ash and even some tar in their, really nice and sultry. Even has some light hops for accent. Deep brown-black pour with a light brown head. Taste with nice ash and wood, roast backed off a ton but the small level of fruitiness allowed to rise. Some coffee still but faint, and chocolate. Low bitterness with a touch of astringency that is really only noticeable in the long finish. Clean with a clean yeast, the big problem is that the body is very watery and somewhat flat; there are style arguments to be made, I suppose, but even a little more body/malt feel would go a long way. An otherwise fine porter!

Scrapersnbeer (1492) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Roasted coffee and fudge aroma. Brown to nearly black in color. Black coffee bitterness, looks like they came up short with the sweetness here, as the malt is strictly burnt. The usual Achilles’ heel for Saranac is in the body, and this one is no exception as it is to thin. Otherwise a solid offering.

MarkSachon (643) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from the holiday sampler case. Pours with a medium head and a nice dark malty color. Medium to medium heavy with a nice finish. For the relative cost of the case, this is well worth the investment. One of Saranac’s better brews.

Itzjerm (1421) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 A bit to bitter with slight astringent flavor and malt astringent aroma. Thin to medium body. Not to good honestly. Aroma of bottle also.
