COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saranac Caramel Porter is a robust, flavorful porter reminiscent of a by-gone era. True to brewing tradition, we've used dark caramel malt as well as Fuggles & East Kent Goldings hops for a smooth, yet slightly bitter, roasted flavor. Look for hints of real caramel used in brewing this delicious brew. Enjoy.

Poured from bottle. Big caramel aroma which is great at first, but is a negative in the end. Caramel and roasted nut flavors work well together. Also a touch of vanilla. Somewhat thin feel. Unique, not bad.

Dark with a light tan head. Smooth, sweet, malty with earthiness and bread flavors. Slightly tart and herby. A little too much dark fruit and woodiness.

Poured a nice ruby rusty brown with a soapy tan head that faded too fast. Smelled of salty smoky caramel not real sweet. Was hoping for a sweeter darker smell. Bitter burnt malt taste. A little coffee and burnt caramel come in the middle. Sour vanilla aftertaste. Not a bad porter but definitely not a great one. $7.99 for six isn’t bad. Was looking for a sweeter darker more porter like look and taste. Will enjoy these 6 but probably not buy again. Breckenridge vanilla porter is the best sweet porter in my opinion.

12oz bottle pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and coffee. Taste was roasted malts, sweet caramel and a hint of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark reddish brown with a frothy head. The caramel taste and aroma really stand out in this beer as you would expect from the name. Very sweet with roasted maltyness. Medium bodied, slick, and average carbonation.

Mediczod (3) - - NOV 10, 2012 does not count
Pours very dark brown, almost no head at all. Pronounced caramel scent and flavor. Very sweet, almost undetectable hops, no bitterness to speak of. Very easy to drink, more of a dessert beer than anything.

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a somewhat small head. Nose is caramely and I actually got a hint of salty popcorn. An odd flavor palate. Caramel is definitely present, along with a hint of that salt. It’s not all that sweet, but the malts really come through.

Stampion (158) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Dark and sweet. The caramel hits you immediately with hints of malt and toasted nut. It's almost too much caramel to be enjoyed as a regular drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance is a medium brown head with a dark brown. Aroma is strongly caramel. Taste is a little less caramel to be balanced with toasted malts. Overall pretty decent.
