International Stout Day (November 3) is upon us, and we couldn’t imagine letting this day go by without paying proper tribute to this incredible style of dark beer. The style is so versatile and creates a hearty backbone for a variety of styles: oatmeal stout, coffee stout, and fruit-flavored stouts, to name a few. You can serve it from the can or on draft with regular CO2 or get a bit fancy with nitro, which enhances the sweetness and creates a super creamy mouthfeel.

So let’s get this party started. We’ve gathered some of our favorite stouts from previous review sessions, some crazy-delicious recipes from our Cooking With Beer recipes, and some stout recipes contributed by pro brewers.
