The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:

Stout \Stout\ (stout), a. [Compar. Stouter (stout"[~e]r); superl. Stoutest.] [D. stout bold (or OF. estout bold, proud, of Teutonic origin); akin to AS. stolt, G. stolz, and perh. to E. stilt.] 1. Strong; lusty; vigorous; robust; sinewy; muscular; hence, firm; resolute; dauntless. [1913 Webster] With hearts stern and stout. --Chaucer. [1913 Webster] A stouter champion never handled sword. --Shak. [1913 Webster] He lost the character of a bold, stout, magnanimous man. --Clarendon. [1913 Webster] The lords all stand To clear their cause, most resolutely stout. --Daniel. [1913 Webster] 2. Proud; haughty; arrogant; hard. [Archaic] [1913 Webster] Your words have been stout against me. --Mal. iii. 13. [1913 Webster] Commonly . . . they that be rich are lofty and stout. --Latimer. [1913 Webster] 3. Firm; tough; materially strong; enduring; as, a stout vessel, stick, string, or cloth. [1913 Webster] 4. Large; bulky; corpulent. [1913 Webster] Syn: Stout, Corpulent, Portly. Usage: Corpulent has reference simply to a superabundance or excess of flesh. Portly implies a kind of stoutness or corpulence which gives a dignified or imposing appearance. Stout, in our early writers (as in the English Bible), was used chiefly or wholly in the sense of strong or bold; as, a stout champion; a stout heart; a stout resistance, etc. At a later period it was used for thickset or bulky, and more recently, especially in England, the idea has been carried still further, so that Taylor says in his Synonyms: "The stout man has the proportions of an ox; he is corpulent, fat, and fleshy in relation to his size." In America, stout is still commonly used in the original sense of strong as, a stout boy; a stout pole. [1913 Webster]
