gotta love my mom....she came over to help me bottle an experimental 100% wheat porter because she thought it sounded fun.

Here mom, taste a sip of this smoked porter:

"Tastes like coffee!"

Try some of my New Zealand IPA:

"Smells like fruit!"

Pretty good I'd say!

I hand a supposed beer snob one of my IPA’s, he drinks it then I give him a sample of a double IPA I had. He replies to me, “That second one was more stout that the first”

He said that he wanted to try a sip, but I think I may have been inside the house when he actually did sip a bit from his wife's glass. He never commented to me about it, and I didn't bother to ask how he liked it. Everyone sitting around him was saying "this is GOOD!" as they set aside their SNPAs and started drinking my PA.

My mom HATES all beer and she will not even try one sip of my homebrews.

A friend of my wife tastes a 7.5% IPA and says it tastes too week while she sucking on a coors lite.

Perhaps that beer snob is using the correct definition of the word stout, which he is right in doing so.

I am sorry, I was under the impression that now a days; "Stout" denotes the actual style “Stout” (i.e. malty, dark, roast, etc…). The fact that at one point stouts where called stout for a reason doesn’t mean it is still used today, I’ve never heard of a judge describing a beer as stout for being stronger than another.

Anyways if the guy new that distinction then his statement would have been worthwhile I guess? Kind of showing off a bit of history he knew about beer. The guy clearly didn’t know that though.

Well, it doesn't matter how you take it, he was using his english correctly. Perhaps one learns of the word before they learn of the beer style guideline (which isn't an original style of beer).

And it is used today, if this aforementioned beer nut were to let's say listen to the basic brewing podcast, he would have come across that term in a pet peeve episode they did where, in this exact scenario, was someone's pet peeve when another so called beer nut used the term to describe the difference between two beer like your friend did. This was at the latest a couple years old, sooooooo ease up, maybe relax and have a.....
