    This was my point. As brewers name their beers porters or stouts on a whim it's worth looking at beers called either
    on an equal footing.

    Most regular stouts are easy drinking. Start sampling.,,,a good old Murphy's Irish Stout is a good one.

    Central Waters BBA Double Stout is purposely lighter bodied to impart higher drinkability. This may be exactly what you are looking to drinnk!

    That's a darn good beer typically only found on nitro in the taproom.

    My vote also goes to The Poet by New Holland if you can get your hands on it. It's a really nice easy drinking stout.
