The roasty, coffee flavors of stout form the malt base of this beer, but citrus and resinous American hops are medium to high in flavor, aroma and bitterness.

Imperial Stout

Also known as Russian Imperial Stout, this is the style of stout that was brewed for export to the court of Catherine II of Russia. It is characterized by huge roasted, chocolate, and burnt malt flavors and high alcohol content.

Irish/Dry Stout

Very dark and rich in color, often featuring a roasted or coffee-like taste. The alcoholic and caloric content of dry stouts are both surprisingly low.

Milk Stout

A stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Because lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer.

Oatmeal Stout

A stout with oats added during the brewing process. The high content of proteins, lipids, and gums imparted by the use of oats adds a rich smoothness to the stout, rather than a specific “oat” taste.
