About the American Stout

The American Stout is a more aggressive rendition of the English and Irish Stouts. It has the dark body and flavor of those styles but with a greater hops presence. Has more roast and body than an either an American Porter or American Black Ale. But doesn’t have as much roast, character or strength of an Imperial Stout.
