post #196 of 1946
Hi everybody!
I just recently started drinking beer! Before I'd only liked herbal drinks like gin or absinthe, and thought all beers were just bitter piss-water. But then I drank some of the darker beers, and now I love them! The darker the better! So I'm always looking for a good new stout porter to try.
So far I've tried Guinness Extra Stout, Road Dog (from Flying Dog), and Anchor Porter, and Black Porter in a Sam Adams variety pack. All are quite good, but I'd rate the Guinness at the bottom out of the four (I guess that means that I don't like the "dry" kinds as much?)

I wish I could find something even more hardy and heavy - the more dense the beer, in terms of thickness, opacity and flavor, the more I'm certain to like it! I've been suggested to try a kind of beer called "Russian Imperial Stout." Does that sound like what I'd like? Can you recommend any others?

Thank you!!!

Hey, I see you are in NJ, so am I. What store do you work in? I'm always on the lookout for a good beer store.

You sound like my kind of beer drinker. If you like stouts try these: Victory Storm King, Stone Imperial Russian Stout, Northcoast Brewing Old Rasputin Imperial Russian Stout, Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout. Those are probably some of my favorite beers.

I am going to have to seek out some of these. My favorite beer that I have tried so far is Guinness extra stout.

Yeah Guinness was one of my favorites before I found out about all the great micros out there. Too bad you are not in Boston.

Yeah Boston would be good but I am only 19. At least I am on the Canadian border so I can go over and enjoy a beer legally.

Well do not go nuts. Remember that some of these brews will put you on your ass.

I actually really dislike being "drunk" I just like beer so I usually only drink a few bottles.

I drink for the taste mostly but the high ABV will sneak up on you sometimes.

Circle, Rt 31 South, Pennington, Mercer County
We were independent for 38 years and just got bought by the folks that own the Super Saver on Rt 22 near Bridgewater
If you come to my store there are only two of us (I Dig A Pony) that really know the beers, Rick Allen, the Beer Manager, and myself.

I'll have to check it out one day. I've been to that Super Saver you mentioned a number of times. They have a pretty good selection, especially when it comes to Belgians. My all time favorite beer store is in South Plainfield. They have an excellent selection of both domestic and foreign craft beers. Despite their HUGE selection, they don't have everything, though. So it looks like I'll be taking down to Pennington one of these days.

^We don't have everything but we do have between 700 and 750 craft beers at any given time. It helps to have 41 beer coolers, the most in New Jersey. And the selection is growing, in the next several months I hope to add another 50 to 200!

I just got a 4 pk of Great Divide Brewing Yeti Imperial Stout. I will have one later on tonight but it is supposed to be pretty good.

I'm curious to hear your impressions on that beer. If it's the same beer I tried : "Great Divide Brewing Co. : Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout"... I wasn't that impressed, but maybe it was just over-hyped for me. Please post your thoughts.
