Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a somewhat small head. Nose is caramely and I actually got a hint of salty popcorn. An odd flavor palate. Caramel is definitely present, along with a hint of that salt. Itís not all that sweet, but the malts really come through.

Pours very thin dark brown color with a light head. Little aroma, mostly a bit of malt and caramel. Chocolate and caramel flavors in the front with a bit of a lingering sweet aftertaste, watery thickness takes away from the beer.

With a fluffy white head and deep amber-brown color, Saranac Caramel Porter only looks delicious. Aroma of carmalized sugar. Sweet but not at all syrupy. In fact, itís quite watery. So light in flavor Iíd never guess itís a porter.

I didnít like this at all. Too sweet, too thin, ill-conceived. It looks ok in the glass, and has a somewhat pleasant aroma, but this didnítt work for me, at least not at that moment.

Sweet caramel with a touch of brown sugar on the nose. Very light in color for a porter. Thin and watery, pasteurization is very evident. Not worth trying.

Unlike most of the others who have rated this, I couldnít really get much caramel aroma or flavoring out of it. The body was very thin, and there wasnít much to the finish. The beer tried to focus on the caramel-ness, and didnít try to do anything else. Not a total disrespect, but not good either.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 Bottle. Classic Sampler 12 pack. Caramel candy aroma. Caramel candy dominates the taste. Too much so for me. Overpowering sensation of eating a Snickers bar and washing it down with beer. Too bad; ícause the other stuff going on here seems pretty interesting, but is buried. BUY AGAIN: Not individually, and will give it away if part of a sampler.

(Bottle). Perhaps last seasons vintage but this one fell short of average. Flavor was flat and stale with no resemblance to a porter.
