Default Pliny substitute in WI?

I have only heard good things about Pliny the Elder/Younger but I don't think it's available in WI. In fact I went to their website and I'm pretty confident about it. Anyone out there try something and thought it was pretty close, or at least a decent substitute?

Hoping there might be something similar locally to pick up whenever. But if I really want to try one, I may have one shipped here.

Enjoy what you can get! Lakefront IPA and Surly Furious are awesome, although not the same beer.

If I could get my hands on some Pliny (hit-and-miss here), I trade for some Furious.

Remember one the the Beer Commandments: "Don't covet thy neighbor's beer"

Well I think I'll give Stoopid a try. Disappointing that Pliny hasn't made it to Wisconsin, especially after hearing all the talk about it.
