Fishing Beer Review: Saranac Caramel Porter

Notes From Website
Caramel, caramel, caramel! There is caramel in this beer, make no mistake. We took a traditional style porter and added REAL caramelized sugar for a delicious caramel flavor.
This is a traditional dark English style porter with a sweet caramel flavor, making it a very attractive beer to people who don’t usually like dark beer. The rich color comes from roasted barley, chocolate malt and caramel malt, which also add a nice roasted flavor.
We use East Kent Goldings hops, a very traditional English ale hop, which has roots back to the late 1700s. The other hops, Willamette, is a U.S. grown variety although it has a lot of the same characteristics as an English ale hop.


This is a pretty good beer that I would certainly buy again if I wanted something familiar. It has a strong and pungent caramel scent and it pours a beautiful brown color with a nice thick beige head. You can absolutely taste the caramel in this one, its actually a little overpowering. If you like caramel you will love this one.
