Highland Black Mocha Stout. I like it.
Founder's Breakfast Stout. From a pretty little known brewery in a state I can't think of.
I recently saw Nogne O, the Norwegian brewery had a couple offerings. Their imperial stout and their imperial rye porter, Havrestout as well as their imperial stout cognac edition. I picked up their imperial stout but I plan on trying it out this weekend. I've seen them at my local shop here in socal for a while, but I'm not sure how readily available they are throughout the country.
Another offering might be HaandBryggeriet's Dark Force, another brewery from norway. I have been wanting to try this one as well since it's brewed with wheat. I tried their winter warmer last weekend and thought it was a decent offering for a cold night.
Nah, he probably heard about it before it was cool.
Dark Seas from Mission Brewing
i dont think anyone has said Old Rasputin yet. its a RIS and really good. Most of the southern tier stout bombers are good. I'm not sure if revolution is distributing in indy yet but look for mad cow and rise they are pretty tasty.
Brewster's Stilton Porter.
Belvoir Brewery Oatmeal stout.
Can't help you with any stouts I don't know about
From Carlow in Ireland, O'hara's Leann Folla'in.
I really like the Duck Rabbit Milk Stout from Kinston, NC. Also, the Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout is fantastic. I've heard some people say Big Bad Baptist, that's a good one. Also the Rogue Double Chocolate Stout, while I know it's not rare, is a fantastic stout.
Lancaster Milk Stout is solid and not mentioned very often on this site. Not sure about their distro though
St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, Mc Auslan Brewing. Fabulous, decent price, I can find it pretty regularly. It's probably my favorite "plain" stout.
Sprecher Russian Imperial Stout flies under the radar, and is one of my favorites.
Bell's Brewery, Inc. Bell's Special Double Cream Stout
Left Hand Brewing Co. Milk Stout Ntro
Magic Hat Brewing Co. Hear of Darkness
Samuel Smith Old Brewery Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout
Southern Tier Brewing Company 2X Stout
Great Lakes Brewing Company Blackout Stout
Wells & Young's Ltd. Young's Double Chocolate Stout
Tröegs Brewing Company Tröegs Java Head Stout
Baxter Brewing - Winter Stout
how come nobody has mentioned
Great Lakes Blackout stout
or Plead the 5th both are excellent
I love Dark Force. There's always plenty of it at all of the stores i frequent as well, which doesn't hurt. I highly recommend it.
Most of what I would recommend is mentioned already, but as far as "little known" I have to give props to Southern Appalachian Brewery Black Bear Stout. Love love love. For more widely available, I'd add Moo Thunder into the fray.
Jackie O's Dark Apparition (especially the Bourbon Barrel Aged)
For something easier to find...Rogue's Chatoe series Dirtoir Black Lager is a really nice, easy drinking and creamy.
Dark Hollow is a pretty good BA stout IMO. Doesn't make it out your way but I'm sure I could hook you up with some..
New Holland Dragon's Milk for a BBL Aged one.
Marshall Wharf's SEXY CHOAS! goodluck obtaining some though. maybe the best stout coming out of maine
also Polaris from Rising Tide (BA Ursa Minor)
Keegan Ales Mothers Milk and Joe Mama's are 2 good local stouts that I can find in my area. Butternuts Moo Thunder isn't bad at less than $8 a 6pack.
Eel River Raven's Eye
Finch's Secret Stache
Wells and Young - Courage Russian Imperial Stout. These are always available by me.
Little colorado love here...
Left hand milk stout, or nitro
Odell Lugene choco milk stout (who'd have thought a brewer with a great porter could brew a great stout?)
Ska steel toe stout
Ska seasonal stouts
Bristol winter warlock (best oatmeal stout i've had)
Copper Kettle mexican chocolate stout (get a trading partner in denver for this)
AC golden ctayt
Black Xantus from Nectar Ales. K & L Wines sometimes has a few for sale.
Flying dog - Kujo coffe stout
Victory - Storm King
Weyerbacher - Old Heathen
Some of my new favorites that aren't hard to find
Did not read all posts. If I repeat , sorry.
I have been drinking these this winter. All good, All are reasonable price
Philadelphia Shackamaximum- oak aged
VooDoo Big black voodoo - oak aged
Six point Diesel-cant find any more this year, think its a winter seasonal
Uinta Labryinth-Rye barrels
All the Bells I tried this year was real good
ST 2xstout- milk stout
I have a few of each if you cant find them in your area.
Highwater's Campfire Stout - tastes just like s'mores
Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate stout
Both are inexpensive and fairly easy to find
Lots of great stouts already named. Another one for you--Hoppin' Frog B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher Oatmeal Imperial Stout. Available in your state, but not mine
Paradise Porter - Diamond Bear Brewing
Another vote for both Epic's Big Bad Baptist, Ipswich's Oatmeal Stout, and Left Hand's Milk Stout.
If you like coffee, Santa Fe's Java Imperial Stout is solid, affordable, and available in six packs. Port Brewing's Old Viscosity is a good one too.
I am not sure if they are available in the USA, but De Molen makes some great stouts and they don't get all that much attention.
Youngs chocolate stout is well known. It used to be nothing short of amazing but im not sure if Wells fatally tweaked the recipe or what because it tastes like there's a half cup of blood in every bottle IMO.
I thought it was just me that thought Youngs DC stout was 'different'...glad I'm not imagining things!
