Description

American stout beer is perhaps one of the most identifiable creations of the American beer world. Stout beer is about as dark of an American beer as can be, and has a very noticeable of appearance, aroma and flavor. As one of the thicker, darker American beers on the craft beer scene, American stout beer is perfect for the colder seasons. American Stout Strikingly bold and undeniably beautiful, the American stout beer style blends generous amounts of dark malts with American hops to offer an adventurous experience that is unmatched by other styles of beer. Are you afraid of the dark? When it comes to American stout, don’t be. Allow your senses to run wild with this deceivingly sophisticated take on a European staple. Stout Beer in America Like many other beer styles that have become prized by American brewers and beer lovers alike, American stout is a distinct variant of a European stout beer counterpart. True to style, American stouts showcase generous quantities of the American hops fans have come to expect, and much like other stout beer types, American stout can be enjoyed year-round but is commonly considered a beer for the fall or winter months. The stout is a terrific companion to bold, hearty foods. Look for hearty game meats, as well as soups and strong cheeses to be particularly suitable for pairing for American stouts, in addition to a variety of after-dinner desserts.
