Beer Recommendations? (& What I Ate Last Night)

I cooked up some more salmon burgers, with sriracha mayo and toasted brioche buns, for dinner and I tried another flavor of beer. I got the burger patties at BJ's Wholesale Club (because I had a coupon) and I like them a lot more than I thought I would! They're pretty substantial and they work nicely with the sriracha mayo I have in the fridge. Right now I'm just cooking them up on a griddle inside, since it's so buggy outside, but I'd like to try grilling some up with a sweet chili sauce glaze before the summer is over.

To go along with last night's dinner I tried another beer. 
Since I'm a self-proclaimed beer-hater, I'm trying to be more open minded this year and try new flavors to see if there's one out there I like.  I went to Wine Works and built my own 6-pack with a few flavors off the shelves (I picked them solely based on cool-labels), but no luck yet. Beer has a flavor profile that just doesn't appeal to me. I very rarely drink alcohol, and when I do, it's sugary mixed drinks that barely taste like booze at all. I've been trying to keep an open mind and try more beers, since all my friends really seem to enjoy them, but I haven't had any luck finding ones I like. 

Do you have any beer recommendations for me? 
Leave them in the comments below. If I can find it, I'll give it a try and let you know what I think.

  1. I hate light beers (both in calorie content and color), so all my recommendations will be stouts and lagers.

    My favorites (and my boyfriends) all imports:
    Köstritzer Schwarzbier
    Mönchshof Schwarzbier
    Eggenberg Dopplebock Dunkel

    Dark, caramel-y, espresso-y goodness.

    Localish beers (I live in Portland, OR so microbrews reign here [though tbh I dislike local beer, have yet to find a solid one I like])

    Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout - Decent, lighter than the other beers up top, but good for a local beer.

    Again, my boyfriend and I like dark beers so these might be too heavy for you. The Mönchshof Schwarzbier is literally a meal replacement beer, very rich and deliciously filling.
