    Wow, someone else that has tried Mackeson, I thought I was the only one :)

    Fuller's London Pride is pretty good. I also like JW Dundees Porter, which is relatively new. Sam Adams makes a great porter as well.

    Murphys and Beamish are similar to Guinness and also both from Ireland.

    Try a dark wheat beer like Franziskaner Dunkel or Erdinger Dunkel.

    Okocim Porter from Poland is delicious and for an alternative dessert try Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

    mayor adam west has a lot of good dark beers on his list (I disagree with you on the Sam Adams Cream stout though, mayor). Beamish is good but it's not easy to find and it doesn't bring much more to the table than what you've already had. Sam Smiths oatmeal and Bell's expedition are my favorites on that list.

    the obsidian stout also gets my stamp of approval as well as the person who suggested anchor porter.

    i believe that anchor porter is much better than their staple beer, anchor steam. too bad thats about all i can get from them here on the east coast!

    the real question is what is your price range and where are you drinking it from... guinness and mackeson aren't cheap so im assuming your budget isn't tight

    my suggestion is Dominion Oak Barrel Stout made in Ashburn, VA. this is a good beer for experienced tongues and also to help turn domestic beer drinkers on to microbrews and imported beers. It's even 'easier' to drink for newbies than Guinness, yet has all the features a good stout ought to have. It's also cheaper to buy than guinness, in pennsylvania at least

    follow this link to read more about it at RateBeer.com:


    it's described as a "delicious stout, dry-hopped with fresh vanilla beans and toasted oak"
