3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz brown bottle from the winter pack.Poured into a lager glass temp around 40 F. Nice frothy head appeared emitted an aroma that is overpoweringly caramel. The head dissipated quickly, but the brew remained softly carbonated throughout the session. The medium body produced a sweet, malty taste that was dominated by caramel. The finish seems to taper gradually to an end. Nice effect. Overall -- not a bad beer that can be considered "As Advertised" by a multi-talented brewer.

bottle. pours a dark redish brown. biege head about two inches of it. lasting with a beautiful lacing. smells predominitly caramel with kind of a vinegar sent. taste is unbalanced. taste starts with caramel and sharply turns to bitter hoppy taste. the idea of a caramel porter is really inticing but i think it could be better.

Just bought this last night. Recommended by my local retailer, this limited edition seasonal is a great find. Rich in color and the aroma of caramel, this porter is surprisingly light and deeply rich in flavor. Get it while the gettin’s good...

Intensley flavorful with strong caramel. Smells sweet but doesn’t taste sweet. Would expect bitterness, but it’s only very slight. A+ dessert beer. One of my favorites all around.

If you want a sweet beer with only a hint of bitterness this is the one. It’s full of caramel from the first scent to the aftertaste. This beer is like dessert.

I really am not a fan of porters, but I really enjoyed this one. It is the lightest I've tried so far and is also quite pleasing to the palate as well as very smooth; it is not too bitter, either. I really enjoyed it and will definitely buy it again.

Not a porter guy but this was decent. Could really taste the caramel undertones. Would drink again
