The term “stout” was first used to describe the strongest of Porters, as a “stout porter”.

Stouts and Porters are closely related, and to this day, many still debate the true difference between the two darkest beer styles. Some argue Stouts use less patent malt, and others contend its a matter of strength.

There are countless stout variations including Irish, Imperial (Russian), oatmeal, chocolate, and coffee stouts.
