Stout faucets are designed to accommodate a nitrogen/CO2 blend draft system instead of straight CO2. Most popularly used to dispense stouts like Guinness (hence the name), they can also used whenever a somewhat flat beer with a creamy head is preferred such as BoddingtonsFuller's ESB, a Russian Imperial Stout, or a Porter.

The beer is carbonated with a blend of nitrogen/CO2 (typically 80/20, 75/25 or 70/30 ratio) called beer gas. When serving the beer is pushed through a small restrictor plate that knocks the CO2 out of solution giving the the beer a nice creamy head and next to no carbonic bite.
