    If you have a Trader Joe's near you I highly recommend their Stockyard Oatmeal Stout. A great everyday stout and a bargain at $7/6 pack.

    This is from Quebec so not sure if you can get it but this is tasty also.

    Grab hold of Sam Smith Organic Chocolate Stout if you can. It's a wonderful brew and blows Young's way out of the water.

    Odd Side Ales makes a few great, and quite unique stouts. Here's a link to a few, all of which were on tap at the brewpub in Michigan last time I was there. They're not bottled though AFAIK so you'd have to trade with someone in growler format. I realize you're probably looking for something easier to find, but IMO all of these are worth it if you have a chance to get them.

    I'm definitely picking some Dark Force up this weekend then.

    Another one (not sure if mentioned) is Flying Dogs Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout. I have one in my fridge right now!
