Stouts and Porters
Guinness, Murphy’s Irish Stout
Big and bold, robust and roasty, these ales sing the glory of malt. The porters tend to have a more delicate flavor with a lower ABV. Their bigger brothers stouts and imperial stouts share these characteristics, but with a bigger body and more robust flavor with potential for some serious ABV. Fans of coffee and chocolate have found their style.

These beers are wonderful, but don’t have major commercial examples to compare to.
- Scriptown’s St. Mynrad Belgian Golden Strong Ale Complex, spicy aroma, with just a hint of sourness, and always delicious.
- Peace Tree Templeton Aged Indecision Black IPA Think an IPA, but with dark roasted malt you might recognize from stouts. It’s the best of both worlds. THEN it’s aged in Templeton Rye barrels.
- Upstream Barrel Aged Quad A Belgian style quad with hints of dark dark fruits like plum, raisin and dark cherry, with the oaky vanilla that barrel aging provides
- Lucky Bucket Oud Bruin A delicious, very tart Belgian style brown ale.
- Thunderhead Jalapeno Ale It’s a Jalapeno Ale!!! Rejoice!
