    Alcohol content is actually typically isn't all that high in stouts, compared to many other beers out there that are mass produced. If you get a stout with a higher alcohol content (I'd wager ~8%+), it's likely because they're close to doubling the malts involved - some may push the boundaries of an Imperial.
    I don't know where the color comment came into play, perhaps you thought that's what I meant with depth, but with depth what I was meaning to allude to was the overall flavor and experience of drinking the beer. After having stouts from several different microbreweries, I just feel like maybe I've been spoiled, I can no longer really enjoy a Guinness.

    Lager: Starno Brno. Czech lager, very rich in taste even though it's really light.
    Ale: Wells Bombardier. Don't drink ale too often though.

    I've actually had a very good Guinness on tap at a local Irish pub. I mean, it's not good as Sierra Nevada's Stout or Old Rasputin, but on tap at the right place it's pretty good.

    I made the color point, as a fair many people just assume that darker color = more of stuff (non-hops), and that = more alcohol!

    My current favorite beer is 10² Barleywine from Fish Brewing. It's a seasonal and it's fairly pricey so I don't drink it often, but it is spectacular. 10% ABV and 100 IBUs, absolutely delicious.

    Have you tried the Rochefort Trappistes beers? They're to die for, especially the 8 and 10 versions.
    yup rochefort is very good to , and yeah i think karmeliet is prolly close to nr 1 for me, also if you can get you hands on gouden carolus tripel -> amazing beer

    I've been a homebrewer for years now, and that is exactly what most people think when you ask them to try something dark. That and telling me about their 3rd uncle of their dad that was a moonshiner and how they have a jar of it. I'M NOT A GOD DAMN MOONSHINER......I MAKE BEER!

    My favorite beer that I have made has to be a Coconut Robust Porter. It was a play off of Jamil's double chocolate porter recipe. So delicious.

    My favorite that I've brewed thus far (even though I'm very much a hop head) is an Imperial Oatmeal Creme Stout, with a slight hint of Cacao. I call it Mudder's Milk (yay everyone who get reference).

    Aha. If I ever had that belief, it was destroyed long ago when I had some of my first double/imperial IPAs, and especially the Founders Devil Dancer Triple IPA. Amazing stuff.

    Speaking of IPAs... how many different ones can Dogfish Head make of the minute variations?! There's 60, 90, 120, and now over the past few days I've been getting Twitter updates from some of my local beverage depots (Binny's FTW!!) of 75 Minute being in stock.

    Next you're going to tell me there's one for every 5 minute added length starting at 0 Minute. lol

    180 Minute IPA. Has a weight requirement of 200+ pounds, to offset the alcohol content.

    Why are you putting so much emphasis on the H?

    Yeah for sure. I loved the 120 Minute, but something even more intense? Yes please!

    This doesn't mean I'm not planning to try the 60, 75, and 90 Minute variations, it all comes down to money.

    I hope to be alive for when they make 360 Minute IPA.

    "Fuck it, this is just alcohol with hops in it. Enjoy."

    Man, I'd love some Dogfishhead right now.

    I don't like beer, so far they have fundamentally tasted the same for me
