BJCP 2008 Guideline

Stout - Sweet Stout

BJCP 13B

BJCP 2008 13B Sweet Stout style example
13B - Stout / Sweet Stout

 

IMPRESSION

A very dark, sweet, full-bodied, slightly roasty ale. Often tastes like sweetened espresso.

COMMENTS

Gravities are low in England, higher in exported and US products. Variations exist, with the level of residual sweetness, the intensity of the roast character, and the balance between the two being the variables most subject to interpretation.

EXAMPLES

Mackeson's XXX Stout, Watney's Cream Stout, Farson's Lacto Stout, St. Peter's Cream Stout, Marston's Oyster Stout, Sheaf Stout, Hitachino Nest Sweet Stout (Lacto), Samuel Adams Cream Stout, Left Hand Milk Stout, Widmer Snowplow Milk Stout
