Yes a good stout has that luscious filling flavor that hits home this time of year. Maybe with some roasted chestnuts!
Good suggestions on the GI Bourbon stouts. I will have to check those out.
Update: I understand that GI's holiday beer is now called "Sixth Day", no longer Christmas Goose. Have a sixer chilling at the moment.
I also picked up Anchor Steam Christmas 2013. It's a nice, piney flavor with some nice malt backbone. Very porter-ish, but not too heavy.
