Stout is a type of British beer with a very dark colour and an alcohol content that ranges from 7 to 8%.
When it comes to enjoy a Stout beer, it is best to do it with some dessert, since it is the type of food with the most noticeable taste. Chocolate-based desserts go very well with this beer, so you can serve it accompanied by some chocolates or truffles.
If you prefer to drink a Stout beer during the meal, ideally that should be done with a strong dish such a stew or other meat dishes.
Origins of Stout beer
The origin of this type of beer dates back to the middle of the 18th century. At that time, brewer Ralph Hardwood had the idea of creating a beer that would combine old beer, copper beer and young beer. This is how Porter beer was born. Years later, to adapt to the tastes of consumers, it became darker and with a stronger flavour, happening to be finally called Stout.
