    So many good ones, but I still do a little jig when I see Pipeline Porter in my beer aisle. When Saranac Caramel Porter comes out, I do a full-out touchdown dance.

    Some good ones already listed but since I am in Texas I will give a vote for Real Ale Coffee Porter. Unfortunately it is still seasonal, I wish they would make it a regular in the everyday lineup.

    Really, there are several good ones available... Anchor porter, Founders Porter, SN Porter; all great options. Locally I really like Highland Oatmeal Porter & Highland Thunderstruck Coffee Porter, if only NoDa CoCo LoCo were available in six packs I would be set...

    Lucky to be in Ohio so I can echo all those who love Edmund Fitzgerald. Truly a go-to beer for me, especially this time of year.

    Two completely different takes on the style for me:
    Anchor Porter- for the yeast signature and balance of flavors.
    Troegs Dead Reckoning- for its hoppy/roasy agressiveness, yet tremendous drinkability.

    In Georgia, there is Red Brick's Porter.. However, it's only in a 4 pack for some reason.

    It's a killer porter though.. Has oatmeal in it, and it's really, really good. Best around I think.

    It's either Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald or Founder's Porter for me. I'd put O'Fallon's Smoked Porter up there too, but for whatever reason it's one of their brews that I haven't seen in Ohio and have to pick up when I go to Kentucky.

    Founders Porter. One the best porters available period. Black Butte is really good as well.

    Going to go local with Flat12's Pogue's Run Porter. Then Founders. Then have to give big props to Revolution Eugene even though I can't get it without driving to Chicago.

    I'm a huge fan of kona pipeline porter, I may be the only one haha, but that guy is freaking great fresh and with some age. It's usually on sale for 7.99 sometimes even 6.99


    It's in 4-packs but maui's coconut porter is pretty tasty as well.

    Snot came out when I laughed at that.
    I like a few of the ones already mentioned (Founders, Ed Fitz, Anchor). Another one I liked that isn't in a sixer though is SA Holiday Porter that was is last years Christmas pack. Anybody else enjoy that one?
