Dwarven stout(m) detail.png

Dwarven stout(m) or mature dwarven stout is a player-made ale that temporarily raises your Smithing and Mining levels by 2 while decreasing Melee stats by 7 levels. Two are awarded for completion of the Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf quest. This brew can be made at level 19 Cooking.


The full recipe for standard dwarven stout is as follows (in the order given):

  1. 2 buckets of water
  2. 2 Barley malt
  3. (optional) 1 "The stuff," to increase chance of maturity
  4. 4 Hammerstone hops
  5. 1 Ale yeast
  6. Wait 1-2 days
  7. Collect the completed ale using 8 beer glasses or 2 calquat kegs

When brewing Dwarven stout, there is a random chance that it will turn out mature. The chance of getting a mature ale can be increased by 50% by adding a package of the stuff to the vat just prior to adding the hops. Maturation occurs during the brewing process, not after. Leaving completed ale in the vat after it has fully set will no longer cause it to turn mature or go bad.
