American Strong Ale, Tripel, and Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
American wild and gangham
My favorite style was when girls in high school wore thigh-high stockings with plaid skirts.
Regarding beer styles, my favorites are stouts, porters, and IPAs. I've been getting more into Belgians and sours lately, but I normally drink a style that fits the season (fall and winter are my favorites). My least favorite style is wheat beers.
Whatever SN is available.
Bocks (doppel, mai, eis) are probably my favorite. Dubbels and Belgian darks are also up there. (D)(I)PA's have really started to grab my interest the last few months too. Marzens always go down easy. Love a good porter or stout. I enjoy barleywines. Pilsners can hit the spot sometimes. So can brown ales.
So basically, "beer" is my favorite style.
You want an opinion on your post? --- uhh --- good for you! How's that?
Spring/summer - IPAs
Fall/winter - barleywine
I like Ambers and Irish Reds.
Hefes and Ales with a preference for Belgian style. I also like Dubbels and Quadrupels a lot for my dark beer this time of year, and lagers and IPA's in the summer.
DIPA and Saison
I like lots of variety, if I start drinking too much of any one style I get burned out on it, but I guess if I had to pick then I'd have to say, DIPA.
Its a toss up for me between IPA/DIPA's and Russian Imperial Stouts....CHEERS
This is a difficult question.. My favorites are saison, imperial stout, and DIPA. It all depends on mood or setting really.
Maybe I'm sick (well, okay I *know* I am) but I love a good smoked beer. Every once in a while I run into a rauchbier, but it isn't very often. It really depends on the season--this is for cold weather. In warm weather a saison is what I crave.
There are still sooooo many styles I haven't tried. American Stouts and IPA's are the favorite. In the early fall I was craving good lagers and pils. I have yet to explore many of the Belgian styles yet. That being said, I have a Trois Pistoles in the fridge now . The only style I've tried that I didn't like was saisons. But my palette is always changing.
Since we already can agree that style designations are blurry at best, I'll just say that I love best beers that are complex, prickly hop bombs, that run through pine, citrus, tropical fruit, and maybe even surprise me a bit! Stone fruit is a nice one, too.
Lambics, especially Gueuze.
Belgian Pale Ales.
Saison / Farmhouse Ales.
An opinion on your favoritism for Porters? I think it's a wonderful choice. Is this what you're looking for? Or do you want my opinion on what style is my favorite? If so, it's IPA & DIPA.
Note: This is a joke, not trolling or some other adjective for reportable posts.
I understand the history, I was speaking specifically in terms of flavor.
I can never decide on a 'favorite' style but I find myself mainly drinking Imperial Stouts, Belgian Strong Dark Ales, Barley Wines, Quads, Triples, Doubles, IPA's, and Sours. Yeah, I like too many beers to really have just one favorite style.
Same again.There has ceased to be any definable difference between the two; that topic has been aired quite exhaustively in previous threads.That hasn't stopped people from trying to define differences; it's a pointless exercise as it's always easy to find counter examples.It all depends on the whim of the brewer.
I haven't had a lot of porters, so I was really speaking from personal experience. There is not one porter I have had that I would take over any stout I've had. Oh well.
DIPA and Sours.
American Imperial Stout
Quadrupels. Because my single favorite beer is one (Rochefort 10) and because I've never had one that I did not like.
So did you have that smoked saison from Stone recently then? I didnt bother trying it, I'm not a big smoke fan. I'm a big saison guy too.
Belgian strong dark ale. Good examples blow my mind. They're strong, smooth, deceptive, and I love the complexities the belgian yeasts and sugars add. Achel Bruin extra is my favorite example.
Oktoberfest and BSDA.
I have gotten the chance to try some yummy Stouts both American and English styles. I prefer dark heavy flavorful beers so rich / creamy and delicious... also lots of brewers have been getting creative there is a minty milk stout i have been wanting to check out. I also had Barley wine style beer and lots of sours for the very first time this fall and those were good too def fun to try. (just a kid don't judge haha)
Next year I would like to broaden my tastes and try some more Belgian/ German/ Scottish beers.
I like the kind that comes in bottles, cans, and kegs.
Belgian Tripel, Saision
American Strong Ales
Imperial Stouts (BA, RIS, Etc...)
It is so hard to pick a favorite, my beer mood is ever-changing. Right now I am big on Imperial Stouts.
when the wallet is thin..ipas and stouts
on payday..Belgians and Sours.
Bitter, preferably on cask.
Barleywine's both American and English, DIPA's and Dubbel's are probably tops for me. Followed by IPA's Stouts (all kinds) Porters, and Marzens.
Can we put a poll up?
My vote goes for IPA.
Williams Bros do a porter (midnight sun) that is a lot better than their stout (March of the penguins) imo of course. The stout is still ok.
edit: of course I should say the porter is an excellent brew
