So I've been on a stout/porter kick lately, buying and trying as many different ones as I can, and figured I'd see what all my fellow BOTLs enjoy in that style. My favorites so far have been Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout by North Coast Brewery and Young's Double Chocolate Stout from Wells & Youngs.

So what's your favorite go to stout or porter? Which ones are worth seeking out and which ones should be skipped?

I have this bottle on my shelf actually! A very good stout, Derek. You'd definitely like the one I posted previously then :tu

It won't help you too much, but my favorite porter is our own homebrew porter. I'm not much of a porter fan but we happen to make a wonderful porter.

:tpd:

But then again we don't have so many different stouts/porters here. I also really like 'Jopen Koyt' (Dutch beer). Although I am not sure it is a stout or porter (it is a dark beer though).

New Holland The Poet - I've been picking these up quiet often lately. I mix in a few other stouts but this one seems to be getting poured more than others.

[not my photo but that is the same glass I drink mine out of as well]

I recently heard of Founders CBS, Canadian Breakfast Stout. KBS that's further aged in barrels used to age maple syrup. Friends of mine tried it recently. Said it was life changing.

I'd have to say Oddjob was my favorite stout porter. A real killer.

Yeah, KBS is all the rave seems like. I've had it. Cannot say I'm a fan. But I don't really like any bourbon finished beers. I think the 2 are perfect on their own.

Life changing is a great way to describe it. That one is very high up on my list of best beers I've ever tried, only had a few opportunities but I never turn one down :tu

To add to this list, my favorite regular production "no frills" porter is Port City Porter, it's a local brewery from Alexandria VA and it is awesome. They just won best small brewing company at GABF last weekend. If you can find it pick it up
