    I'm bad with names.. don't remember them so much.. porters, stouts, bitters..

    oh and I love many wheat beers! Koff had one nice wheat beer one summer.. but they withdrew it for low sales. I drink some wheat beers regularly but don't remember their names. Awesome stuff.

    I also love many specialty beers with aroma's of grapefuits, chocolate, or anything.. always eager to try new tastes

    I'm not so big on pilsner's or lagers. Heineken's, Foster's, etc are okay to distinguish thirst, but their taste leaves much to be desired. Domestic grocery stores in here sell big packets of lagers for cheap price.. that's what I mostly drink, 'cos it's cheap, just like me I'm sad it is so.. I'd wish that good tasting, rich flavoured beers would be cheap, but instead we have this bland thing in a million versions.. Olvi and Karjala light and medium beers are ok tho, but just 2 and a half stars from me.

    A great post to get me started here...Thank you.

    I had a milk stout in Portland once that I loved. I think it was lactose seeded. I miss that one and have no idea what the name was or where to get it.

    My favorite class of beers are ales. These are top-fermented using a warmer process than the German lagers, so named for the process of lagering, or long-term cold storage in barrels.

    Of the ales, my favorite styles are IPAs (India Pale Ales) and Russian Imperial Stouts, generally speaking the hoppier the better.

    Among amber ales I like:

    Stone's Ruination Ale
    Dogfish Head's 90-Minute IPA
    Great Divide Brewing Company's Hibernation Ale

    My favorite Imperial Stouts are:

    Victory Storm King
    Dominion Brewing's Imperial Stout
    Duck-Rabbit's Rabid Duck Imperial Stout

    I also am a fan of some other odds-and-ends kind of beers, such as Tupper's Hop Pocket Ale and Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot Barleywine. When ordering in a restaurant that doesn't carry microbrews I generally go with the Samuel Adams porters and stouts, and have yet to be disappointed. I even like their Boston Lager, which is a style I tend not to prefer.

    For those interested in trying out a winter ale, Sierra Nevada's Winter Ale 2007 is a terrific choice. Highly recommended.

    Here are a few more recommendations regarding winter ales:
    Full Sail Wassail
    Full Sail Wreck the Halls
    Samuel Smith Winter Welcome

    What I'm enjoying quite throughly at the moment:

    Samichlaus Bier from Brewery Castle Eggenberg in Austria. It's a strong lager with an ABV of 14% and is only made once a year on December 6th. I got the 2006 edition and this tastes absolutely wonderful. Definitely in my top ten.

    Update, I now kind of like Molson Canadian and I've also had Guiness, which was ok the first time.
