    Seven Brides makes several nice beers - I have had a very nice pale ale and an excellent brown ale from them while visiting Portland.
    I have enjoyed a glass or twelve of Dortmunder Union, Pilsner Urquell, and Gosser - excellent. But I like my beers a bit chewier than your lists - except, of course for Flop's Guinness.
    Some suggestions:
    Imported
    Unibroue Trois Pistoles - A really different dark beer - something between a porter and a stout, with the added complexity of using Belgian yeast. Dark mahogany with a fruit nose.

    Young's Double Chocolate Stout - A medium bodied, dark beer; smooth, creamy, and not too dry, ; very well-balanced. The aroma has always bothered me a bit, to me smelling a little burnt. I guess that's the "roasted" cocoa beans.

    Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast - Really hard to find, but worth the search. The only stout I would admit that competes with my own brew as a favorite. This oatmeal stout blends coffee and chocolate.

    Belhaven Scottish Ale Not as dark or rich as the stouts, but a beautiful clean looking dark brown beer with a gorgeous head. Very complex flavors, nicely balanced between the rich malts and a hoppy finish.

    Some domestics you might want to try:

    Marin Brewing San Quentin Breakout Stout - This beer is absolutely black, rich, and smokey. It has a head that stands firm until the last bit is drained from the glass. Very complex, very smooth on the tongue.

    Shipyard Signature Imperial Porter - Very complex, very creamy, with neither malt nor hops predominating. I taste caramel at first, with the hops more in the after-taste.

    He'Brew Messiah Bold - Again, a very complex beer, but not as heavy as the stout or porter - this is a beautiful nut brown ale. Very nicely balanced, with the hops nicely balancing the rich malt. And Kosher!

    Unfortunately, I cannot offer you the best of the lot - Two Dog Brewing's Barking Dog Stout - A chocolate stout but with 1 gallon (out of 5) of the water replaced by a gallon of strong French Roast coffee. Double-pitched with White Labs Irish Ale yeast, Fuggle hops, and yeast boost to increase the alcohol a bit. As Ben Franklin said - Proof that God loves us! For those of you unfamiliar with Two Dog Brewing, it is located in my kitchen, with production limited to 5 gallons at a time. The last bottles of Barking Dog were consumed during 4th of July celebrations.
    I do have plans for another batch, but plan to try something a bit different. I want to start the beer with Cascade and Fuggle hops, and then re-hop mid-fermentation and at the finish with Pacific Jade. I am looking for a dark stout, but with the aroma and bitterness of an IPA.

    R.I.P. Cyrano and Roxanne.

    In June a few friends and I decided to do a little summer stout tasting. The fallen soldiers. A lot worse ways to spend a day.

    After reading through your list I'm pretty certain we could belly up to the bar with the same glasses of beer. I'm going to have to look into a few of your recommendations. BevMo tends to carry some semi-obscure stuff, so I'll start there.

    Thanks M! This is really turning out to be very informative. Let the lists keep coming.

    Guinness (#1, nothing else is close)
    Stella Artois (just had a keg of it at our fantasty football draft last Friday, good beer if you plan on drinking 9 or 12)
    Fat Tire
    Kona Longboard
    Blue Moon
    Alaskan Amber
    Sierra Nevada - I like this if I'm only drinking one or two. It's such a hearty beer that makes it difficult for me to drink more than a couple.
    Guiness is definitely an acquired taste. I can only described a pint of LIQUID PUMPERNICKEL. I can usually only handle one pint. I have Scowcer friends (Folk from Liverpool) who swallow 10 pints in an evening as standard fare. I can't even imagine.

    I like Fat Tire.

    Blue Moon is a Belgian White that is the sort of Ale you DO add lemon to. I don't know why Americans insist on orange.
