I can't drink much alcohol anymore -- bad experiences. But it's good in the long run (that I have basically stopped).

No lol, no AlcAnnon or anything; just a few hangovers...

Natty Lite is a great underage beer. Cheap dark beer sucks ass. Until you're of legal drinking age, free beer is the best kind.

Sam Adams is my favorite available-everywhere beer, but I don't think of it as "dark". To me, "dark" generally means stouts or porters... Guiness is the obvious choice there.

Ugh..Guiness. It's like dinner in a glass.

Not that it's a beer so to speak, but woodchuck cider rocks!

Just looking at my bar sign over the computer brings a tear to my eye...

Not to mention any beer that encourages a tap handle like this: http://cgi.icq.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3251663558 has to be cool.

man, you're a man on a mission..underage drinking...what would mom or dad say?
i enjoy the following, and i should qualify this by saying i drink lite beer only when it's the last resort.
harpoon ipa
sam adams boston ale
bass ale
these are only a few. my preference for hard stuff is johnny walker black on ice; forget about the red. but remember, sip it, don't drink it like beer or you'll never find the door so you can get home. naturally, having a teenager myself, and, for you legal types, i don't endorse underage drinking.

I found some Harpoon here in Ohio. The Ale and the IPA are both really good.

The flavorful, cheap beer I used to enjoy was Weinhard's Dark. It is definitely NOT up to the style standards of Porters or Stouts, but my experience is that those types of craft beers are never cheap. Like most things, you get what you pay for.

I've long advocated drinking less quantity but higher quality. But, I can't say I advocated that when I was 18.

Sampled a couple of fabulous beers over the weekend, of similar style. Each was ~11% abv with monumental residual sweetness and body. Eku 28 is from Kulmbacher in Germany. Amazingly smooth, but almost cloying. Dogfish Head Immort Ale was from CT (I believe) and had much nicer hop balance. Each had characteristics reminiscent of Skullsplitter and Samichlaus, two other huge holiday beers.

I'm still REALLY enjoying this year's incarnation of Deschutes Jubelale.

I love the huge hoppy beers. I have two cases of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale at home... that's good stuff.
