Stout and Porter are two types of beer that can be found almost in all parts of the world. Both fall under ale, a type of beer that is usually brewed or fermented at warmer temperatures. Both Porter and stout are dark-colored beer, but both are not produced from the same material.

Roasted barley is usually used in the making stout, while porter is made from dark malt. Porter was first produced in the 18th century, while the word stout was first used to describe a dark and strong beer made with toasted grain in the 1670s. Porter is not as strong as stout, and it is not as flavored as stout.

There are different porters taken in different parts of the world; they are; honey, bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate porters. In the same vein, there are different types of stout taken all over the world; they are; imperial stout, milk stout, Irish, or dry stout.
