    Of the ones I have had and remember, off the top of my head, I would say Guinness, KBS, BOMB!, Sweet Baby Jesus

    Like stout wise, or just in general? For example, HotD Otto has some nice thick chunks floating in it!

    Most of the Prairie offerings would qualify. TenFiddy comes to mind, too!

    It's one of my locals, I had a keg on for a few months. Took a lot of time and effort to get that tap handle clean because it was so crazy sticky and thick. If I didn't drink it for a few days the handle would get locked up.

    I'd venture it was Mother of All Storms. That it was definitely the sweetest may have had something to do with it.

    @yemenmocha gotta agree with the Mikkeller Black Hole - that one was syrupy thick and sweet. Loved it, but it was quite a task to finish.

    Otherwise, I'd say Ten FIDY is up there too (as well as quite a number of big Russian Imperial Stouts.. pretty much just name a brewery haha)

    Mikkeller Blackest. That's the bourbon BA version of black, at a hefty 16.9% I believe. The darkest beer I've ever had. Drank like driveway sealant.... wonderful.

    Bell's Expedition Stout was almost like drinking toothpaste, it was so thick. Founders Imperial Stout was thick, but mostly just so cloyingly sweet that it seemed thicker than it actually was.

    Bell's Expedition Stout. Had barely any carbonation so it drank like a think soy sauce... a tasty, thick soy sauce.

    Without a doubt, Goose Island's The Muddy.

    Goose isn't real highly thought of here, but this stout was mind blowing

    2010 Dark Lord that I cracked open when the Hawks won the Stanley Cup this year is the answer for me. 5 years is the sweet spot for DL, very drinkable, very good, and you feel good after :-)

    Huh. Fair enough. I didn't find it thin.

    I had Bomb! A couple months ago and I thought it wasn't as thick.

    Those homebrews that are bottled near the end of the batch as you're trying to squeeze out every bit of beer into a bottle from the bucket.
