Guinness The most famous. A dry, bitter, opaque stout from Ireland that is also low in alcohol. Murphy's is very similar. It's a Cork-Dublin thing. Dry Irish stouts are old-school beers, full bodied and far from wimpy. Where: every Irish bar in town.

Rogue's Roost Imperial Stout Big, powerful, stick to your tongue, gums & teeth stout, with strong flavours of licorice, coffee and bitter chocolate.

Propeller Russian Imperial Stout Similar to the Rogue's Roost version, only this seasonal stout can be taken home in a bottle.

Garrison Martello Stout The unfiltered version is delicious, flavourful, but still moderate stout, with lots of chocolate flavours.

Granite Brewery's Keefe's Irish Stout A dry, coffee-tinged, creamy stout with a touch of caramel, on tap at Henry House.

St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout One of the best stouts in the world, made in Montreal at McAuslan, with rich body, coffee and licorice notes, and refreshing roasted malt bitterness.

Keith's Stag's Head Stout A new draught from the hometown brewery, this stout is milder than most of its competition, leading some drinkers to describe it as being similar to Schwarzbier: Black German lager.

Propeller London Porter A perennial award-winning favourite which perfectly illustrates the smooth richness of a very good porter.
