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.

16th August 2008. Clear dark brown beer. Pronounced toffee caramel - loud and clear! Not that sweet and even a little sourness coming through at the end. Not a subtle beer, does what it says on the label, caramel and more caramel. Drinkable though!

Oakes (13961) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2009
Burgundy-brown colour. Large bubbles. No head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla and what I imagine to be bile. Really unappetizing. Very sweet flavour with lots of vanilla and the taste of artificial awfulness.

argo0 (12509) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2002
Beautiful on the pour -- brown red body with a lasting tan head. Aroma is caramel -- not standard beer caramel aroma, more like sweet candy caramel. Flavor is intensely sweet caramel, with the wee bit of earthy hoppy bitterness at the swallow insufficient to lend any hint of balance.

Tmoney99 (12410) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2005
BOTTLE. Sweet aroma that matchs the name. Black color with large tan head. Flavor was good and sweet but not as good as the start. Good but would not be first choice in style.

12oz bottle-pours a brown head. Color is brown/reddish. Aroma is caramel. Taste is very sweet caramel (too sweet) and malt. OK for an occasional, but not a session beer for sure.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Harris Teeter - Barracks, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear dark brown color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of pretty damn strong caramel notes, sweet and almost cloying, some butter and faint hops. The taste is faintly roasted malts, caramel, faint hops and a bitter finish. Medium bodied.
