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.

3/12 of the winter variety pack. Aroma is definatly of caramel which smells great and has a diet cola look. tastes good with a nice, smooth after taste of caramel.

From a 12-oz bottle, the porter is dark brown with little head. The caramel smell is overpowering, but the first sips are more balanced with a bitter aftertaste that fades to sweet. The malt here is like butterscotch candy. Tastes great with almond chocolate bar.

First flavored porter I’ve ever had - an instant fan. A winter favorite now. It does, somewhat, have an artificial caramel feel and taste, but I don’t care - it tastes and feels right. It also certainly tastes like there’s a fine generic porter in under there, with the right touch of chocolate and roast malts. Just enough hop for the style.

12 oz. bottle into a chilled pint glass. I got this beer from the winter pack and saved it till the end with high hopes. I know this is a dangerous move but I was very pleased with this beer. It pours a deep red-brown with an aroma of caramel and malt. The taste is delicious, full flavored with plenty of caramel and nut. I recommend this selection.

Too light of a body. Definitely can taste the caramel notes which I do like. A ad bit too sweet. Great idea but certainly not perfected.

All the good qualities of a porter and none of the bad. Good aroma, smooth flavor which has a hint of the heavy porter maltiness. The caramel lightens it up and takes away some of the typical bite. Little to no aftertaste.
