Sun King Brewery's Sunlight Cream Ale. Quite good.

Started the night by tasting a Unibroue sampler pack at work. 5/6 in the sampler were delicious, among the best beers I've had, however the Ephemere Apple, is a little too fruity for my tastes (some may like it though, while fruity and the worst of the 6 still a decent beer)

Ended up buying a bomber of the Maudite because it came with the glass. for only $2 more than the regular bombers, felt classy drinking it out of the custom glass

 

Now I'm finishing the night off slowly sipping on some Rogue Chocolate Stout, which is fucking delicious

Maudite is the best, but Trois-Pistoles is the one that goes for the KO, especially when you get them in a Growler (which is mostly 90% of the time here) !

Had a few of these in a local pub yesterday. They went down rather well. Can't say I've ever heard of this one before.

 

I had a couple of American Pale Ale's in a pub just round the corner from Liberty's earlier but I can't remember the brewery?

I'm not learned on beer whatsoever... just try a lot of different ones and expensive ones without much background knowledge.

 

 

I was wondering if anyone can recommend something that tastes like Guiness Draught. I'm sitting here with one, and I realized just then that this is my favorite beer. I can see that statement inviting ridicule, but it's true. I think it's delicious, and if there's anything else like it I'd love to give it a try!

I actually got into beer via Guinness, and I don't think yours is a position that invites ridicule. I don't rate Guinness too highly these days, but only because I've had much better.... But that required trial and error and looking for things thy aren't readily available. Which isn't easy when your grocer has 9/10 of its display devote to bud.

 

If you can, try a Guinness Foreign Extra stout. Definitely a step or ten up. It's pretty legitimately good. If you like it, or at least think it's interesting, I'd recommend going to beeradvocate.com and searching the rankings for stout styles, reading reviews (always with a grain of salt) and trying out a few as you find ones that spark your interest.

 

edit: sorry, I fucked up on tapatalk and triple posted this shit. Duplicates hidden, mods plz delete them if they fuck things up.

Belhaven Stout is just as good as Guinness, better on nitro!

The issue with beeradvocate/ratebeer and the likes is that they're dominated by beer nerds so unless it's a huge beer or really out there it's less likely to have a good rating. I haven't looked, but I can almost guarantee you that the highest rated stouts will be big ass imperials and RISes, which if you're not ready for, you will definitely not enjoy.

 

Edit: I highly endorse ghosty's recommendation of Buffalo Sweat if you can get it in your area. One of my favorites!

Oh yeah, of course. I just meant browse reviews to get a feel for what sort of qualities the beer might have, and select some to try based on what sparks an interest.

 

Although I don't think going straight to a Storm King Stout from a nitro Guinness draft can is necessarily a bad idea either :emotawesomepm9: .

Massively appreciate the advice and recommendations, I'm sure one of the local beer stores will have one of those.

my favourite as of late, it even beat out Black Creeks Porter.
