Beer Styles


Very dark beers that are fermented at warm temperatures and vary in strength. The name stout comes from the term stout porter, describing a bolder permutation of the popular porter style during the 17th century. Stouts are considered to have stronger roasted flavors than porters, but can vary in character from dry, smooth and sweet or strong and bitter, depending on the type.
