Stout Beer ( Stout by Mr Guinness 1865 )  

Stout. Most people think immediately of Guiness when they see that word, which is perfectly understandable, seeing that Guiness stout is the best-selling of the style, worldwide. It is, more correctly, just one of the stout styles. Guiness version is known as an Irish-style stout, and not just because it originated in Dublin. The Irish-style stout is drier than its English counterpart ( known as London style ), which includes which is a sweeter stout. While there are many similarities between the two, , the principal difference is how their roasted character is achieved. The Irish dry stout is defined by the roastiness of the un-malted roasted barley, while the sweet London stout uses chocolate malt in its place. Aside from the obvious contrast between the stouts’ sweet and dry character, the London style has a creamier texture – a slightly higher gravity and sweetness across the palate – this is the result of the use of lactose milk sugar ), which is un-fermentable. In many instances, this style is also referred to as milk stout.

Both of these stout styles share common ingredients such as the highly-kilned black patent malt, used for its colouring, and its bitter, almost charred, grain flavour. Top fermenting ale yeasts are also used by brewers of both styles.

There is a rare style of stout strongly associated with pre-Bolshevik Russia.

British brewers found favor among the czars of Russia, particularly for their brand of stout. Unfortunately, the English made stout did not travel well to St. Petersburg and other points east. To compensate for the short shelf life of their beer, the British brewers did as they had done for India pale ale that had been shipped to Bombay and Calcutta. They raised the gravity and increased the hop content. This complex brew, the resulting high alcohol, was greatly admired by the Russian rulers. This style has since become known as Russian stout, Imperial stout, or Russian imperial stout.

There are devotees of all the stout styles, but they are small in number. Stout is no thirst quencher, it is in fact known as the “steak and potatoes” of the beer world.
