I love this one too! It's probably the best robust porter I can think of.

My personal favorite is Kona Pipeline Porter. Flavor is excellent and it brings back memories of my living just a few miles away from the Kona Brewing Company Brewhouse in Hawaii, good times.

I really like fullers and samuel smith's Taddy porter. My favorite would be bells porter. Founders, Great Lakes, descutes, troegs, and diamond bear all make a pretty good offering in a porter as well. Diamond bear is Arkansas local brewery so you have probably never heard of it.

This ^^^

Also, if you want dessert in a glass and you can find it, Maui Brewing's coconut porter is a rare treat.

Several great porters have already been mentioned, but there are certainly more to add to the list. I think porter is one of the best styles out there, here are a few more I like: Firestone Walker Reserve Porter, Smuttynose Robust Porter, Yuengling Porter, Zwiec Porter, and of course my homebrew, Yom Kipporter
