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 never believed in truly wireless earbuds. But I bought some galaxy buds at Best Buy today. The first 4 hours of my shift each morning are before my store opens, and It's generally just with one other person that is working on the opposite side of the store. I have to listen for a door bell after a while to let people in other dept in so I can't have both earphones in at once, and I didn't want a dangling ear bud flopping all over the place while I tried to work. I'll mostly use them for podcast listening rather than music so ultra sound quality like a $300 pair of Bose or Jabra's were out of the question. Skullcandy and Ankor had some cheap $70 ones, but I went with galaxy buds since i have a galaxy phone. They were $120, they sound really nice and fit snug in the ear suprisingly. They came with different size tips just in case. Plus the carrying case is super small. They get around 6 hours of battery life each, and the case will recharge them about 2 times before needing to be recharged itself. So if I ever work a full overnight shift they'll last me all night one bud at a time.   I'll have to find more podcasts to listen to as I've burned through a lot of the old eps of the ones I currently follow.

      This skyscale collection for GW2 is crazy huge. This is easily a larger collection than what was required for the Nevermore precursor. If it required a massive gold investment, this mount would basically be legendary status imo. wtf.

      I finally got the time to do some stuff again. I hope it lasts. I finished Stranger Things season 3 which was great and I got multiple hours in GW2. I almost have my 2 large festival achievements done for the big chests.  After that I'm going for my skyscale and warclaw mounts.

      Holy cow, I guess I'll be watching a crap ton of series this upcoming season. Funi is loaded on dubs. I'm a little irked that the new Fate series will be sub only out of everything tho. Fire Force and Dr. Stone are my most anticipated. Cop Craft and Astra Lost in Space look interesting... I see 2 new isekai series that could go either way. Master of Ragnarok set the bar super low, and Sheild Hero set it ultra high for the genre.

      Almost messed up my well by over using it trying to put some water in this pool.. now instead of slow filling it over the next couple weeks while it slowly becomes an algae disaster I'm buying a delivery of water instead. $160 for water.
