Stout (usually imperial/coffee/oatmeal varieties)
1. Wee Heavy
2. American IIPA
3. English Porter
This, with slight amendment. DIPA, RIS, English BW.
keepin it simple.
Belgian Dark Strong
Imperial stouts, Sours and IPA/IIPA
Tie: IIPA / Belgian Strong(Pale or Dark)Ale
I really like your thinking - pretty much sums up what I would have said.
Brown Ale or Strong Ale
Belgian Strong Dark
Smoked Imperial Coffee Chocolate Oatmeal Molasses (and any other darkening thing you can think of OTHER than barrel aging) Stout / Strong Ale
Faro / Geuze / Other non-fruit Lambic blends
dark ales (distant 3rd)
Right now imperial stouts, coffee stouts, dipa (sub barleywine). Summer time saisons, sours, dipa (sub czech pils)
Well my palette can certainly change but right now I would say:
1. Orval (nothing else like it - a style by itself)
Same for me. I'd probably say oatmeal stout if forced to chose a stout.
American IPA, BA Impy Stouts and Gueuze
Include DIPA with the IPAs
Belgian Strong Dark Ales
American Double Imperial Stouts
not too close behind is English Barleywines. Only had one, but loved it. Hopefully I'll be able to try more of them!
...in any order, pure bliss all around.
1: Imperial Stouts. The thicker the better.
3: Most things not BMC
BA Stouts, Sours, An Obscure Style You've Probably Never Heard Of.

Deal With It.
American Porters / Stouts or Imperial Stouts / Saison - Farmhouse Ale
Imperial stout, quad, saison
Low alcohol beer, American adjunct lager, and American Malt liquor...
In all seriousness, though, I prefer all imperial stouts, Scotch ale/wee-heavy, and Lambic.
American Wild Ales
1. Stouts (All)/Porters
2. Scotch Ales
Imperial IPA / Imperial Stout / Wild Ale
1. Flanders Red Ales
2. Imperial Stouts
- Imperial IPAs
- Old Ales
- Flanders Oud Bruins
- American IPAs
- American Wild Ales
Dying to try more Eisbocks, Weizenbocks, Gueuzes, Fruit Lambics, and Bitters.
It's funny. The last time I answered this kind of thread, Old Ales were in the Top 3. I think Saisons were in the Top 3, too; at least five or six years ago, they were. Also, after last summer's experiment of trying every hefe I could, I appreciate the style all the more. They bumped out DIPAs because there is no hefeweizen I won't finish. The lesser-quality Imperial IPAs give me a really hard time.
1) Any stouts (reg. or imp.)
3) American Black Ale
1) American Pale Ales
Flanders Reds and Oud Bruins
Belgian Pale Ales
styles I'd like to see more American breweries producing
