    Belgian and Stouts for sure. Having said that I absolutely love Surly Darkness but every other RIS I have tried has fell flat.

    "Bitter" Ale is IMO the English equivalent of Amber Ale. There are differences, but they are minuscule.

    Force down a sixer of Torpedo for three days straight, then drink a Double Jack, Hop Stoopid, Hopslam, or Ruination. You beat your palate into submission with the Torpedo, then reward it with the nectar.
