A stout is made with dark roasted malts which results in a dark color and a roasted malt flavor. In mainland Europe they are usually termed "noir" (black). The word stout means strong, and was applied to strong Porter in the 18th century - most typically by Guinness, who were one of the few breweries to continue making such beers into the 20th century. Guinness is today the template for Irish or Dry Stout. Other stout variations are Imperial Stout, Foreign Stout, and Sweet or Milk Stout - as well as Porter, Imperial Porter, and Baltic Porter - and the related Mild and Schwarzbier.
