Responsive image

Hip hip hooray! Today, Nov. 4th, 2021, marks the official International Stout Day.

Reflecting for these next twenty-four hours makes us realize just how many fantastic stouts are out there. Like these Imperial barrel-aged beauties. Or these whimsical pastry stouts. Or these crazy coffee stouts.

We feel it's only appropriate to celebrate the stout in all its wondrous forms. With that in mind we ran the numbers on the overall top-rated stouts of 2021 on Untappd. 

Yes, that means this is a list that takes into account all of the stout categories on Untappd including: Stout - Oatmeal Stout, Russian Imperial Stout, Other Stout, Imperial / Double Oatmeal Stout, Irish Dry Stout, American Stout, Oyster Stout, Foreign / Export Stout, Milk / Sweet Stout, Imperial / Double Stout, Imperial / Double Milk Stout, Coffee Stout, White Stout, Imperial / Double White Stout, English Stout, Pastry Stout, Imperial / Double Coffee Stout, and Imperial / Double Pastry.

But you'll obviously find that most of the beers here come from several of the more popular categories such as Imperial / Double Stout and Imperial / Double Pastry.  If you're looking for more specific ratings we highly encourage you to check out these other top-rated stout lists:
