    I'll second that vote. In fact, anything from Stone is outstanding. If only I were worthy.

    If you haven't tried it, pick up the oaked ale.

    Re: Porters....

    It was a 45 minute drive, but I stopped up in Reading at a beer distributor and they had several different Porters in stock. I ended up buying a case of Anchor Porter for $37.00. So far it's been pretty tasty stuff. Now I just need to find it locally.....
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    You know all them DIPA hop-heads are fixin' to lynch ya Ethang!

    I have had one or two exceptional porters from the Mikkeler label. I know they kinda brew all over the place but are originally from Denmark. Some Belgian online friends suggest to me that the Danes make stouts and porters that they are most envious of.

    Another vote for Stone, Ed Fitz, and Founders. Three of my favorites. I'll throw in Bell's porter, Left Hand's Black Jack Porter, and Tyranena's Rocky's Revenge or Chief Blackhawk.

    The talk here led me to pickup a six of Ed Fitz last Friday. Man alive, it's a nice beer. Richly flavored and satisfying. I had a few over the weekend, but one specifically, on Sunday afternoon, was a real treat. Hard to describe it any other way.

    I got my hands on a case of the Founder's. It's taking some getting used to. I don't think it's my favorite, but it's really interesting and tasty stuff nonetheless. The Anchor Porter, however, is quickly becoming a common sight in my beer mug....

    Re: Porters....

    I consider these 2 porters to be the absolute benchmarks of the style.
    Anchor Porter and Fullers Porter.

    The greatest session porter unfortunately is no longer made, Bert Grant's Perfect Porter, it was pretty darn close to perfect!

    A couple other fun ones.
    Okocim - A great Baltic Polish Porter.
    The Old Engine Oil Porters from England.
    and
    Ballast Points Victory at Sea Imperial Vanilla Porter.
