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.

Brown/red color. good head and lacing. I could definitely taste the caramel in the malts and sweet finish. Not syrupy or cloying and thatís 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 Saranacís 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 Iíll 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.

BEST damn beer out there! Such a unique taste. I never expected to have a beer that tastes like this. A slight popcorn-y taste after the beer gets a little older. Drove all the way to Utica, NY from Philadelphia with my girlfriend to get a case of this. Definately worth a try for any level of beer drinker.

The aroma is full of caramel and malt, the flavor is malty with underlying sweet caramel. a slight touch of hops is noticable.
