im out of beer
the liquor store is closed, but tomorrow. . .
Dieu du Ciel's Péché Mortel
Sinha (lion's stout)
Founders' Breakfast Stout
Stone Imperial Stout
Samuel Smith's Imperial stout.
Overflowing with flavor and 7% ABV. You don't drink this beer, you eat it.
Guiness Stout. The standard by which others are judged. Seriously - it becomes a great point of reference for other stouts.
Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter
Kona Pipeline Porter
A second vote for the North Coast Old Rasputin Stout
Any stout by Bell's
Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron or Raison D'etre or Raison D'extra
The Dogfish Head beers are dark, but strong brown ales, not stouts or porters. Breweries are underlined for simplicity's sake.
Coopers Best Extra Stout (6.3% ABV)
Coopers Extra Strong Vintage Ale (7.5% ABV)
From sunny Adelaide, South Straya, the city of churches (and bikey gangs)
Descheutes Black Butte Porter and Obsidian Stout. On tap where possible.
Three words: "Dead Guy Ale" (Rogue Brewery, Newport OR). Truly a thing of beauty if available in your neck of the woods. Try it, you'll like it.
Wish you well.
Not sure if you can get it over there but I do love :-
Young's Double Chocolate Stout
We can get it on tap nearby where I live, and I'm in a fairly rural area. It's actually one of the few imports I go out of my way to get once in a while.
Thumbs up for the Deschutes and Rogue products, for sure. Black Butte Porter is my equivalent of a session beer -- not too high test or filling but certainly not a lightweight swill either.
I doubt you can find it, but this stuff is awesome!!
Dunno if it's still made but Dragon Stout (Jamaica) was some pretty tasty stuff
There are tons and tons of micro brew stouts and porters available. The trouble is actually finding someplace that sells them locally.
1 - if you can get Sam Adam's Cream Stout, it's a wonderful thing. That should be readily available.
2 - if you can find any kind of coffee stout or coffee porter, give a try. It works better than you might think!
I'll second this ... however, and I cannot stress this one enough ... do not get this if the store only sells it in a can. This stout only tastes good right from the tap, or out of a bottle. I had one place serve me one out of a can, and it was horrible tasting.
Try some Czech dark beer, e.g. Velkopopovicky Kozel dark. It is a little bit on the sweet side, but not overly sweet and it has a nice aftertaste. It's not heavy as a Guinness or Kilkenny, but a bit like light beer with more taste.
I also like the British Newcastle brown ale. It's not heavy either, and perhaps more "balanced" than the Velko. Not better though, they're just different. If I have to choose, I pick the Velko, it has a more unique taste.
The Cream Stout is pretty good. It's the first stout that I've tried that I really like.
Jonathan, you might also check out Sam Adam's Black Lager. It's not quite as heavy as a stout, but it's got a great flavor.
Fuller's Londer Porter is one of my favorites. Should be available most places.
A local brew, but if you can get it I highly recommend it, is Hockley Stout.
Wychwood Breweries Black Witch is also awesome. Also should be available throughout the states.
Those are just a few that haven't been named yet, but as it's been said before, there are a millibillion options. Best bet is to do what I do. Go to the liquore store, buy one or two of every porter, stout and ale available. Then drink them. You're sure to find one you like.
Another option is to order in a specific brand. Bring a list to your liquor store, and see if they can order any of it.
