I've found that Dark Beer is only for a few people. Amongst the majority of American beer consumers, a lot of them do not like the harsher taste of Porters and Black Lagers. I guess the best way to put it is: If you like you're coffee black, then you might like dark beer. Anyways here are my top five personal favorites.

Sierra Nevada Porter is probably the most bitter out of my top five. It will definitely put some hair on your chest. Its very thick and creamy.

Sam Adams Honey Porter sweetens the pot with a touch of honey. The bold thick taste of any porter is still dominant in this beer but the honey smooths the aftertaste for those that stay way from dark beer for that reason alone. It also has small hints of chocolate.

Yuengling Black & Tan is the where to start if you want to get into darker brews. B&T has a much smoother taste than most dark beers and doesn't bite as much at the end.

Guinness Extra Stout. Its Guinness... but better! I once thought this was the strongest tasting beer ever. After downing hundreds of them, I've acquired a resistance to its bite. I really can't say why this is my 2nd favorite of the bunch, maybe because its the first dark beer I ever tried.

Ah. 2 Samuel Adams in my top 5. 3 out of my 2 lists, and 2 of them get 1st place... What can I say? Sam makes good products. Imagine the stout of Guinness paired with the ultra-hoppiness off Boston Lager... thats what we have with their black lager. Its strong, and its potent. You could put a flashlight up to it and light will not shine through it. X'D This beer is my favorite dark beer, but I definitely have to be in the mood for it to drink it.

The darkest beers I've ever stomached were Red Dog, Red Stripe and Magic Hat. They weren't even real dark beers. blech! X'D

I'm surprised those beers don't make hair grow on your tongue. lmao. X'D

To each their own tho. But then again, maybe I just haven't tried a good dark beer yet. I've seen black and tan at the store. I'll have to see if they sell six packs so I can try it.

Bleh, extra stout Guinness. I like a stout dark beer but that crap is too strong for even me.

Never actually tried the Sam Adams Black Lager yet, tried most of the others though. Will have to give it a shot. Will have to give most of the others a taste as well.

      I watched "Dragon Blade" this weekend. A great Jackie Chan movie, mostly subtitled. Really depressing and really good. The pacing of the movie was amazing to me. So much happened in 2 hours that it felt like some epic trilogy condensed down to 1 movie with all the boring parts removed.

      I'm starting to get really good with Genji. I got gold in eliminations several times tonight, and carried at 51% kill participation in one of my matches. And with a buff to his ult in the pipeline, I won't have to worry about my fun getting nerfed for a while. There are few things that feel amazing in this game. Hooking airborne Phara with Roadhog, Hooking Tracer with Roadhog, Killing a good Zarya period, and deflecting an ult back at the enemy team with Genji... because I totally got McCree good.

      That feeling soloing the boss with corpses cheering you on, because everyone else fell to their death on Thaumanova Reactor, and the boss has 30% HP left. I did it for the first time since the change. The heat room isn't that bad when done as a group. But having to do 4 rooms now makes it my least favorite even more so. I also had to do the Not So Secret JP again for Astralaria. WTF? Not So Secret and SW? The two worst JP in the game for this journey.

      My car is screwed up. It has an overheating issue but it doesn't show it as an issue. The radiator fan wont turn on unless my AC or heater is on. No check engine light or anything. After a long diagnosis at a dealership, they've concluded that the computer in the car itself is failing and needs to be replaced. Never had that happen to a car before. Its a hefty bill to get that swapped out. I could go cheap and buy a used part off ebay for $30-100 but I don't see the point when theres no way to test the damn things accurately considering mine is reading as functioning normally. wtf. Instead of trading in the car, I'll foot the $1k bill next week when the get the part in. I really don't want another car payment at this point.

      I feel sorry for anyone that wanted to buy a NES classic at retail price. The last of them will be shipped out til the end of the month. Never wanted one myself, but a lot of friends did. This is why emulators will always be a thing.
