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.

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

Good but a little to much caramel for my liking.

Bottle- In my opinion this is one of Saranacís best beers. Nice sweet, complex flavor. Looks good and tastes good.

I loved this beer. Pours a very dark reddish black that you can see through if you hold it up to the light. Smell is exactly like caramel candy, and the taste is the same, with a slight bite at the end to remind you that it is a beer. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly carbonated. Id drink this beer anytime

Man, oh man, this is a tasty porter. More than just a hint of caramel with enough of a body to keep you from thinking youíre ingesting liquid candy. Got it in the Twelve Beers of Winter 12 pack, and itís easily my favorite of the bunch.

I expected this to be good, but really, this is over the top good. With a minimal, ever so slightly bitter aftertaste, the flavour and palate are heavy and thick and comforting. Beautiful beer and probably Saranacís best.

What a porter the carmel definately shows through but not in an overpowering way. They need to make these for more than just the christmas sampler

Toffee and caramel aroma. Clear brown pour with a medium, but lasting tan head. Hazelnut coffee taste. Thin mouthfeel. Butterscotch finish. Iím not crazy about butterscotch, but this tastes really good. Iíd say there are probably adjuncts, but if this is natural it is truly spectacular. Way to go Saranac!
