While many associate stout beers with Ireland, its origins span the United Kingdom and Russia. Stout beers are a dark, rich ale, distinguished by its use of dark-roasted barley. This imbues it with that signature chocolatey flavour. Balancing out the sweetness of chocolate with the bitterness of hops.
Stouts use an ale yeast that rises to the surface during fermentation, setting it apart from bottom-fermented beers such as lagers. Contrary to its robust reputation, stouts can taste light to medium-bodied.
Porter beer vs stout? The distinction is subtle, but it all comes down to the barley. Stout beers are brewed with a roasted barley, while porters use malted barley.
