Old Rasputin doesn't get old.. I also really like DFH Chicory Stout
Ten fidy and old raspy. Brooklyn black choc.
Just got into Stouts. I really like Youngs double chocolate Stout
So surprised it took 36 posts for someone to mention Breakfast Stout. This is so much my go-to stout that I had trouble even thinking of another stout I drink regularly. FBS shared time with DFH Chicory Stout before that went draft-only. FBS is just great and never too tough to find around here.
Bear Republic Big Bear Black
Green Flash Double Stout
Founders Breakfast Stout
BCBS...and yes I can buy it year round.
Duck Rabbit Milk Stout or RIS. Both rock. I could drink the Milk Stout all night...
Fbs or fis. Have about a case of each still but definitely enjoy old raspy and ten fidy as well.
Definitely Stone RIS. Beautiful stuff!
Brooklyn Chocolate Stout at home and Guinness at most bars.
I'm not sure I really have a "go to" stout. The one I've certainly consumed the most of is Big Gruesome from Spring House.
In order of preference and frequency of buying
Yukon Midnight Sun Espresso
Barney Flats Oatmeal
Sam Smith's Oatmeal
St Ambroise Oatmeal
Bell's Java Stout. Relatively not hard to find, comes in 12 ounce bottles, not too high in abv (7.5%).
For the more available and still great stouts...
Deschutes Obsidian Stout
Founders Breakfast Stout
North Coast Old Rasputin RIS
Bar Harbor Cadillac Mountain Stout
Rogue Chocolate Stout
Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout
Southern Tier Choklat
Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout
Great Divide Yeti
Hoppin' Frog BORIS or DORIS
Founders RIS (able to find about 7 months out of the year)
Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout (again able to find four packs through at least half the year)
Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat
Bells Double Cream Stout
Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin
Founders breakfast Stout
Founders Imperial Stout
Mayflower Oatmeal Stout
BCBS ( Local liquor store still has cases and no one buys them but me )
Troegs Java Head
Ten Fiddy, Dragons Milk, Storm King if I'm in the mood to amp it up a bit. Wulvers was bloody fantastic, but not sure if that's going to become a regular or not.
Many votes for SN Stout got me thinking I haven't had one in a while. Always available, and I've been ignoring it. Bad, bad BA
Founders Breakfast Stout, then Ten Fidy
Still haven't tried Black Note; hope to score a 4-pack next release!
And since it is too late to edit, I'll add this and will seem like a BA Heretic...
I will take Bell's Java Stout over GI BCBS any day! I don't need 14%+ abv beers that are nearly impossible to find, and expensive to buy when they are actually found. There, I said it, flame away!
I'm not the biggest stout drinker, but I am trying to get in to them.
Recently I had a Mexican Cake for the first time, a New England Storm, and a Clown Shoes Undead Party Crasher and I thought they were all incredibly delicious. Obviously these are all a little on the more difficult side to get.
Any recommendations for more widely available brews that I may enjoy? I had an Imperial Biscotti Break and wasn't wowed by it to be honest, so maybe I already set the bar too high for the style by hoping everything lives up to the first mentioned above?
I'm constantly trying new stouts, so I "go to" anything I can find that's recommended. But the regulars are Old Raspy, Stone IRS, Straight To Ale's Laika and Ten Fidy.
I get the sense that Great Divide is struggling to spread Yeti across it's ever-increasing distribution area. Probably takes some effort to brew it.
I would have to go with Left Handed Milk Stout on Nitro
I know it's seasonal but the Coffee Stout from New Glarus only available every other year
The Sweetheart Stout by American Sky---again seasonal but as odd as it sounds chocolate peanut butter stout was GOOD
American Velvet by American Sky another coffee stout
Buffalo Sweat by Tallgrass
Is Coffee Bender by Surly considered a stout?
I love stouts, they are my favorite beers...really if they have a stout on tap chances are it's my go to beer for the night
Tough call. Black Albert, Speedway Stout, Parabola, Stone RIS, Abyss.
I don't "go to" very often, but when I do, I don't like to fool around.
I'll take Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro or not.
And Lion Stout.
Ah, I wasn't aware that they have increased distro recently. Yeah, a couple years ago, many varieties of the Oak Aged series were available just sitting the shelves of lots of places, but now, lately I've finally ran into the Chocolate version. It's been more than a year since I've seen the standard Oak Aged Yeti, which is one of my favorites.
Good ole Murphy's!
Tioga Sequoia Rush Hour Coffee stout.
Im in the SoCal area so my go to stout would be:
- Stone IRS
- Belching Beaver PB Stout
- Old Rasputin
- Beer Geek line from Mikkeller
Old Rasputin... High quality, cheap price, year round, easy to find. It's not the best stout in the world but it's a winner in my book based on the things I just mentioned. Samuel Smith makes some great year-round stouts as well, slightly more pricy though.
Once upon a time for the price/quality/availability equation it was Old Rasputin. Now that Victory distributes here it might very well be Storm King. Usurping the ol' Rasp is no small order.
This is my go to, for now! I love peanut butter, anything.
Wake n Bake when it's available.
Samuel Smiths Oatmeal stout or Founders Breakfast
Left Hand Milk Stout- Nitro!!!
Speedway. I know it's not part of the "I can only drink 1/3 of a bomber movement" but for me a two and a half hour block and a bottle of speedway is pure enjoyment.
