I ship beer often, I always ship it room temperature and never had a problem. I try to ship early in the week to avoid it sitting in a hot warehouse somewhere over the weekend.

+1 on Fuller's London Porter.

Smuttynose Robust Porter is one of my favorite, most drinkable porters.

Also, Rogue's Mocha porter is widely available.
