that they didn't. Luckily I asked a friend who shops there reralugly and apparnetly knows their stock better than the employees. He pointed out that they had both. Now I have both. Actualy I have both open right now and am pouring half pints of both right now. This should give me enough chance to taste and compare them but also give me enough of each to drink a pint after. I can see why you say you should taste both. I think that you'd miss a lot if you didn't pour both side by side and taste them together. There's a huge similarity it seems to the grain bills, because they seem to have similar malt profiles, but there's much more yeast character (fruit notes) in the stout, which you'd expectsince it's almost double the OG. I love the raisin/dried fruit note in the finish. The porter is fabulous. I think I actually prefer it at the moment, but maybe that's because it's the middle of the afternoon. I love the dry roast finish. It just makes me want to drink more of it. Thankfully, the local shop seems to have a fair amount of it at this point so I'll be able to get both and try them together again. We're having our annual snow storm here in Portland and I can't think of a better thing to do on a snwoy day. Beer research and education never tasted so good. Can't wait for the next batches. I hope you do one of the milds at some point.
