Maybe three or four times, total. None in probably three years.

You're missing an option in the poll; she was ambivalent.

They either like porters or hate them. Few women are ambivalent about porters.

Well, she KNOWS how much I love (brown) porters, so she was willing to try one. Wasn't her favorite, though....

SWMBO would hate it. She can barely get through a sweet cider, much less anything with hops and grain, much less roasted grain.

It's not her favorite, although she'll try it even if it makes her gag. But she's a trooper, she finishes it like a champ.

Finally talked her into it. Convinced her it was smoother and easier "drinking" than it appeared.

At first "sip"...I could swear she kinda yelped...

Don't think she'll be partaking again.

[EDIT] That was 15 years ago...

Heh heh heh - I win.

EDIT: Of course, she's not my wife - maybe that doesn't count then.
