Three cheers to Saranac to have the balls to brew stuff like this, but it's not exactly someting you want more than one of (maybe that's why they only put them in their mixed twelve packs). I neither love it nor hate it. It just is what it is, and it's not bad at that. Got it?

Overwhelming sweet caramel and other off flavors. Didn't care for this one.

Didn't like this at all. I really like porters but this one just turned me off completely. Imagine a porter with no discernable bitterness and a melted rolo mixed in. The caramel flavor was too much, overpowering the brew and making it taste like a novelty beer cocktail.
