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.

Too much caramel, not enough porter. Other than that, pretty good. Very very sweet.

Very sweet - the caramel, as the name infers, really jumps out at you. Itís almost too much and seems a little unbalanced, but still itís a pretty good beer.

this one is thin for a porter, but a pretty auburn brown with a thin beige top. not a great deal to add to previous ratings since this is a beer thatís either going to gaffe or ingratiate based on your feelings for added caramel. tho my eyes narrow in huge skepticism to any casting down and dancing upon the reinheitsgebot, caramel seems an innoucuous adjunct and theyíve used it with reasonable restraint. i like it, but itís a one trick pony.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 I've never had a carmel porter before, and i did not know what i was missing. This was exceptionalally boring. It goes great with some french vanilla icecream though. Descent flavor, while not weakening the overall body. A little watered down if ya ask me. Could use some more additional malts.

Felt like I was drinking a 3 musketeers bar. Although good on the proper occasion

Nice caramel flavor, but not very complex. Would be nice if offset with some roasted malt flavor.
