English Stout

A dark, malty, sometimes sweet beer with a pronounced bitterness and strong flavour. Whether sweet or dry, stout is brewed with lots of roasted barley and coffee flavours. The dark (almost black) colour comes from the roasted, caramel and even chocolate malts. English Stouts differ to Irish Stouts in that they tend to be sweeter in taste and also possess different hop and roast rates.
