Thanks Mark. Hopefully people will find this a useful tying reference.

Thanks again, Stefan, for granting permission to use the photo.

Nice job guys, and thank you.

I don't think this link is working anymore for the chart.

I will find a way to host the chart. I may even be able to improve it with some additional photos I took while visiting John Shaner's. I now have photos of a full set of Pearsall's Stout with color names and numbers. Give me a few days. I have a busy weekend.

Ray, thank you. I have 3 charts. But I am looking for a better chart. I am having trouble on two colors. The cardinal #12, and the #13 crimson. They look the same to me. I think the crimson should be a tad bit darker. I am not in any rush. I look forward to whatever you find, to display the colors. THANK YOU in advance.
