English StoutStout emergence in Ireland by way of English Porter wasn’t about to go unanswered by English (and Scottish) brewers, who went on to brew their own Stouts and create additional Stout variations (see subsequent Oatmeal Stout, Milk/Sweet Stout and Russian Imperial Stout descriptions). English Stouts not falling into one of these three specialty classifications generally deliver classic dark, roasty, chocolate, coffee-like robust Stout character at a moderate ABV.
