Mine would be SN's Coffee Stout. I wish it was more readily available here in NY.
Tree House That's What She Said
MBCO Mean Old Tom. On nitro. That's my standard stout (what I compare most stouts too).
Kalamazoo and Obsidian
Carton- Milk on Nitro
Either Left Hand's Milk Stout, or Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout
Left Hand Milk Stout FTW
Seems like that beer is returning to the winter pack this year so I'm glad for that.
Bristol Winter Warlock is my favorite although it is technically an oatmeal stout.
Deschutes Obsidian Stout
Going with Kalamazoo Stout. Damn good beer.
Edit: I would have gone with Special Double Cream Stout but that's not year-round.
Koffee Kream Stout or Breakfast Stout
Rogue chocolate and Shakespeare aren't only amazing...they might be rogues best beers.
Brau Brothers Moo Joos. So good.
Weisacre gotta get up to get down
I don't drink stouts under 7%
Modern Times Black House. So good and easy to drink.
This, I don't think I've ever had a stout under 7% and I don't think I'd want to since it would be extremely thin.
Expand your horizons.
Ipswich oatmeal stout. Labeled as 7% here, but it's a touch under.
There are thin high abv stouts and there are lower abv stouts with a fuller mouthfeel.
I mean I'm always open to try new beers, but not when I know I'll be disappointed. Thin stouts are the worst to me, and anything under 7% is going to be thin. Maybe someone can refer me to a thicker 7% stout?
You're definitely right about the thin high ABV stouts, and after I try them I don't get them again. You do have a better chance at getting a thicker stout when you go high abv than you do when you go low abv, though.
This right here.
If by "American Stout" you are referring to the beers classified as such on this site, then - Kalamazoo.
If you mean stouts made in America, then - Left Hand Milk Stout and Central Waters Mudpuppy Porter.
What - you want your straw to stand up in it or something? Maybe you just have developed a taste for beers which are an underattenuated mess...
Mean Old Tom
Gellas No 50 Liberty
Dieu du Ciel Aphrodisiaque
I don't see it get much love, but i think Avery Out of Bounds Stout is fantastic.
Rogue Shakespeare was a pleasant surprise in both the mouthfeel and taste. I expected it to be lackluster due to the abv, but ended up really enjoying it. Recommend giving it a shot.
Marble's Oatmeal Stout
Favorite Burley Oak Funstout appropriate for their 4th anniversary
readily available Left hand Milk Stout
not quite what asked Edmund Fitzgerald Porter
I mean, let's not get crazy. But if stouts like DBH, reg huna, assassin, bcbs, etc are underattenuated messes then yea I guess I have.
Thanks for the recommendation! I went and looked it up and apparently rated it some time ago. So I stand corrected, I have had under 7% stouts. I don't really remember how it was but I gave it a 3.75. Maybe I'll have to revisit it.
I think most stouts made in England are under 5%
Malpais from La Cumbre http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/24659/67709/
Nightshade from Abandoned Building in Mass. (7.2 close enough?) http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/34328/142617/
Sierra Nevada http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/140/283/
All very balanced and should not be that hard to get (trade or distro).
Barney Flats is a great one if you're talking readily available American brewed stouts.
Sierra Nevada's stout is a fantastic hoppy stout, and quite strong at 5.6%. I think it's a classic American beer...
