Definition: Stout

A strong, very dark, heavy-bodied beer made from pale malt and roasted unmalted barley and (often) caramel malt with hops. Stout was first introduced by Guinness as an extra stout version of their porter. The new stout was darker, hoppier and richer than porter, which it gradually overtook in popularity. It has a deep, dark color and bittersweet flavor.
