Stout is a dark beer

Stout is a dark beer made using roasted malt or roasted barley, hops, water and yeast. A stout beer is a dark, sometimes bitter beer that was first commercially produced in the 1730's.
Stout beer is composed of barley and varied types of malt. Other variants may be made using oatmeal, which usually produces a sweeter beer.
Chocolate stout is a name brewers sometimes give to certain stouts having a noticeable dark chocolate flavor through the use of darker, more aromatic malt; particularly chocolate malt and a malt that has been roasted or kilned until it acquires a chocolate color.
Dark roasted malts, such as black patent malt (the darkest roast), can lend a bitter coffee flavor to dark beer.
Sweet Cream, sweet, or milk stout has an addition of lactose during the brewing process. The result is a much sweeter beer than its more bitter companions.
