What Porter is best for your cupholder?

"Baltika 6", a Porter type brew from Russia (St. Petersburg) seems to the best fit for my cup holder. It's height lends itself nicely to the COMAND background. The squat cans of Guiness and Harp (Irish) look too SUVish for a Mercedes Roadster.

What do you think?

For your consideration...

The Edmund Fitzgerald Porter from Cleveland, OH. I'm not sure about the feng shui of placing a beer named after a shipwreck in a sun-drenched roadster, but the label is cool.

I grew up at Baltic Sea, but have never seen Baltica then.
Personally I prefer something stronger (7.8% alcohol)

Baltika is 7% alcohol.

Yes, thank you. I replied in an e-mail to the address in the PM--I think it was an AOL address... Let me know if you did not get it.
