    Gonna open up a bottle of Stone's 2009 Russian Imperial Stout, soon, and I'm going to BevMo later, probably gonna pick up some Old Rasputin. I love me stouts. Any other dark beer enthusiasts on TFW?

    Yo.

    Just got some good ones from the New Glarus, WI brewery a couple weeks ago, including their Black Wheat and Coffee Stout. Yum!

    HO-hoho yeah. I've had some delicious coffee stouts, there's one Brewery (can't remember the name for the life of me) that makes a cappuccino stout.

    Always been an ale fan. None of those kiddie gassy watery lagers for me.

    I'm not big on beer, never acquired a taste for it. However I do prefer dark beer. Got to try Lobotomy Bach on the 4th of July, good stuff.

    To this day, there's only been two lagers I've enjoyed. 1) Sam Adams' Boston Lager and 2) Wild Blue's Blueberry Lager.

    I absolutely abhor pilsners, that is fucking disgusting, but everyone in mi familia drinks 'em, usually in the forms of Bud Lite or Miller Lite. :puke:

    Join us here! It's been dead for a bit, but that needs to be changed. I need some recommendations as I've exhausted the market near my home and can only go to the specialty shops every so often.

    There's a ton of good pilsners out there, Steamwhistle for example, but it is a matter of taste. I find the time of year also affects what beers I enjoy, which makes sense, light pilsners in the summer, heavy ales and such in the winter. And let's be fair, Bud and Miller Lite are far from indicative of what a good pilsner should be.

    Dark Beers, also very good. I had a great dark ale at a microbrewery on the weekend, and the Ontario Brewing Company makes a pretty neat Winter Ale. The St. Ambrose Stout and the Wellington Stout are also quite nice, though availability for those outside of Canada may be an issue.

    I've had some pilsners outside of American Macrobrews and I didn't care for them either. When it comes to summer, I'm enjoying Boston Lager and Widmer Hefeweizen (though it's technically not a hefe). I don't care for winter or pale ales, either. I had Avant-Garde Carnivale by Lost Abbey, didn't care for that, either. And I love that brewery.
