The higher FG will make it a bit thicker (more body). Depending on the reason for the higher FG it may or may not result in a sweeter beer. If the yeast crapped out with fermentable/shorter chain sugars in solution then the beer could be sweeter than designed.

It may just be a little sweeter, but not by much. I also don't think that a sweeter stout is a bad thing. I wouldn't worry as it isn't that high off the mark anyway.

The same thing happened to me (FG 1.020). I swirled the carboy and let it sit for another week and I think I may have gotten another gp down to 1.019, but it was pretty close. Ended up being 4.6%. I bottled it yesterday and it tasted great so I'm not worried. If it tastes good don't worry about it. Its supposed to be a little sweet right??

That's a gorgeous keezer and room! Well, except for the "Blue Devils" junk on it, I mean.

I love the photo!

Well, my keg is empty. I was hoping it would hold out till Christmas. At least I have a New Years resolution now. Fill my keg again.

It was 62 so i brought the temp up a bit the last few days and stirred the yeast gently back into action. Of course maybe they ate all the sugars and are taking a nap as they should be. I won't know until I take a gravity reading. If they gave up on the job too early them I'm pitching a pack of Nottingham into the carboy.
Well I'm pleased to report that this was a huge success. This is going to be on the re-brew list for sure. Love the way it turned out with the wyeast 1318 absolutely killer beer :-)

I like it so much that I re-set it back on the cake too and might do it again.

I thought Yooper was flawless and then I get a bluedevils bashing....HA

I love the keezer and all the extra room...I forgot to label all the brews but they are all this recipe and barrel aged.

Merry Christmas

I know it's not traditional for this style, but do you think it would be acceptable to bitter this beer with a small amount of nugget instead?
