I have a nitro tap and alternate between a Stout and and Irish Red. I hvbeen putting them in 2 1/2 gal kegs so I switch them out more often. Works for me.

I'd say put anything you want to try on Nitro in it. What's the harm in trying, you might actually find something that is that much better on Nitro?
Mind sharing the recipe for the robust porter please?

Thanks

I really like the Irish Red on nitro. I was in Ireland last summer and there was an Irish Red on nitro that gave me the idea. Kilkenny is awesome.

I recently had Victory Hop Devil on nitro. It was amazing! Most of the stuff I've had on nitro have been stouts though.

A few years ago, Founders had it's Harvest Ale on nitro and co2. It was awesome. I'll go so far as to say ANY beer would be good on nitro.
