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.

dessert brown with a creamy delicious looking head...aroma was super sweet carmel, no if, ands, or butts about it..well maybe a few butts...BIG ONES..anyway..
there’s no justification on giving this a bad rating just because its unique..its damn tasty and a finely made beer...
Carmel onslaught...I actually expected sweeter though from reading all the ratings..THere’s actually a good beer under that carmel..I can taste it..The ending needs a little work though..

Bottle- In my opinion this is one of Saranac’s best beers. Nice sweet, complex flavor. Looks good and tastes good.

Brown/red color. good head and lacing. I could definitely taste the caramel in the malts and sweet finish. Not syrupy or cloying and that’s saying a lot! One of the best of the 12 pack sampler.

A very unique porter. Lots of sweet maltiness in the aroma- and loaded with sweet caramel in the taste. Very smooth and easy to drink.

I think this is one of Saranac’s better brews. The caramel is very pronounced, and seems to hide a lot of the underlying flavors. Very much a dessert beer. Probably great for cooking with steaks and burgers.

Tan head slightly diminishing. Chestnut hue. Nots of toffee, caramel, slight sweet alcohol nose. Not much to the body here, but its interesting. Light bodied. Tons of caramel, almost too much. Decent and sweet, good with creme brulee.

Sweet caramel with a touch of brown sugar on the nose. Very light in color for a porter. Thin and watery, pasteurization is very evident. Not worth trying.

If this makes any sense at all I’ll consider myself lucky. I love porters which typically have a roasty, caramelly flavor but this was just too much. Almost like drinking caramel syrup sundae topping, just too much for me.

A very nice porter. Nice hints of carmel smooth out the taste of this good beer. A nice variant into the Porter realm. Definitely a beer for all to experience.
