nothing else will do.
German pilsners. I drank a lot of them this summer but haven't had many with the fall and winter seasonals being released. I had a Victory Harvest Pils last night though and remembered what I've been missing.
Stout > Saison > IPA
Probably Double or Russian Imperial Stouts and sours at this time...
I dunno yet. I am still tasting 'em. I do know I haven't tried belgians, lambecs and saisons yet.
IPA/IIPA, by a fairly wide margin.
IPA's then Saisons or Hefe's
America IPAs, big citrus flavors.
Depends on the weather, time of day, mood, what side of the bed i woke up on and how the planets are aligned that particular day.
Vienna Style Lagers...
I agree. I would only swap out EIP for Baltic Gose.
AGED beers. It is so much fun to see what cellaring can do to a beer. Have a crappy wheat ale? Maybe it becomes a sour a couple months past date. Maybe a forgettable barley wine with 3 years of age is suddenly in your top ten. The mystery man, the MYSTERY!
Oh, "aged" isn't a style you pedantic thread-shitter? Barley wine then.
Porters are my personal favorite. This is followed closely by Imperial Russian Stouts and Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy. They are all so awesome. I started out with IPA, but switched to porters a few years ago. Been in love since.
However I do love some Belgian Strong Ale and Saison/Farmhouse too. There are so many to choose from!
My favorite beer is FREE beer.
Though, to narrow it down, I like so-called "fancy beers," not the watery American mass-market beers like Bud, Miller Lite, Rolling Rock, etc.
oh for the love of god
I don't know what my absolute favorite is, but recently my fridge has featured a bunch of Imperial Red Ales.
But Baltic Gose is just a made-up style.
Andech's dopplelbock is mostly likey the best beer I'll ever drink. I drank it for 2 years while stationed in Germany from 1977-79.
That said, my favorite style is Double IPA..or Imperial IPA.
I am starting to heavily favor Porters but I wanted some opinions on this.
Irrelevant unless we trade, but just in case send me all your Barleywines.
Fuck you, Chadquest, Barleywine (American) is my favorite style. There can be only one!
I honestly love every style except pilsner, lager, bock, porter, and sour/wild, though. Eventually, I'm certain I'll find "that" beer in each of those styles, and be an equal opportunity drinker.
Also, I can't see preferring porters to stouts. Porters just seem like the stout's little, less interesting brother.
Double/Imperial stouts by far. Followed by Pale Ales
I love many styles, but at the moment I'm favoring American & Belgian Strong Ales
I've gone full circle and although I love and drink many styles I find myself going straight for the mild when I see one available.
Barleywines/old ales, in both the American and English styles. I love the rich, rich malts in both and the occasional juicy, dank hop bliss that comes from the best American examples like Mirror Mirror, Old Ruff, Behemoth, etc.
Sours and barrel aged imperial stouts
That is all.
West Coast IPA/DIPA, German Pilsner and Saison. In other words I like dry beers, mostly.
Porter is the father of stout, not its little brother.
IPAs, Biere De Gardes and any kind of sour beer.
Two favorites are probably English barleywines and wits. No internal logic to that one.
Stouts 1st and foremost, 2nd favorite goes to everything else.
Funny how taste evolves with exposure to new things - three years ago I was satisfied that the ultimate taste was a Belgian Strong Pale Ale (Duvel) - after this weekend I'm satisfied that I'll never top Smuttynose Robust Porter.
Zombie Dust. Whatever the fuck style you consider it.
I'd be a happier man if there were more Bocks and bitters to choose from
I had my first Founder's Breakfast Stout this weekend - what a special treat that is. Poured like used motor oil that smells like chocolate coffee - and it was delicious!
