According to the BJCP, the "stout" category is made up of six distinct sub-categories:
- Dry Stout
- Sweet Stout
- Oatmeal Stout
- Foreign Extra Stout
- American Stout
- Russian Imperial Stout
Which of these do you prefer? Montana brewers offer many fine stouts in most all of these sub-categories. Feel free to comment below which ones you recommend.
If you're the social type, you can earn the "Stout Day" badge on Untappd today by checking in to any stout. Last year, Untappd had over 18k check-ins on Stout Day with 1,126 unique stouts being represented. Pretty impressive.
