    Sometimes when I'm in the field sitting around a campfire with the crew, a new bottle will appear and it gets opened with enthusiasm. Somebody invariably gets a wild hair and yells "burn the cork!" I then know I will have a long night and a slow moving crew the next morning.:confused:

    Yes, I knew, but I like the pallet load view better.

    Been there and been that guy, and been in your position, too. That guy doesn't remember, but you and I do (sometimes vaguely).

    Stuart, a few years back I went on a porter exploration, trying a couple dozen locally available offerings. After months of exhaustive (yeah, right!) testing, the Founders came out on top for me. When I want something a little "punchier," then the Old Rasputin imperial stout is my choice.

    Congratulations for your adventure. Many won't make the effort despite there being a wonderland of porters out there. If you can find one, try a Yuengling porter. They are serious.

    As well it should be, GT. I was glad to see your prior conversation in this thread about darker ales. They are my "mother's milk" in beer, either porter or stout (a double porter). I find some stouts to be bombastic, porters are, generally, more subtle, yet full of flavors.

    Thanks for your input, Stuart, and for your earlier recommendation of Yuengling. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    I agree with the folks who say porters and stouts are seasonal - porters in warm weather and stouts in cold! :D

    I could drink Guinness any time of year. Besides, we don't get cold much around here.

    Since quite a few members of the Beer Scout Knife Club hang out over here, I figured I'd post this photo here as well. One of our local bars has an upcoming show:
