Oatmeal Stout

A relatively sweet dark ale commonly brewed with lactose. Combined with the lightly roasted character, this beer has a pleasant “coffee with cream” profile.

American Stouts are roasty, full-bodied, dark beers with moderate to fairly high bitterness and hop character.

Imperial Stout

A bold, malty black beer featuring chocolate, roasty, and coffee flavors with a large range of expressions depending on region and taste. Some, particularly American expressions, will feature substantial bitterness and hop aroma with a less fruity yeast profile, while English versions tend to favor a malt balance with more fruity esters.
