Commercial Description

Based on the authentic recipe from Alexander Keith’s brewery dating back to the late 1800s, Keith’s Dark Ale is crafted using roasted specialty malts to create a dark mahogany coloured ale with distinctive notes of chocolate and coffee. This smooth tasting Dark Ale is brewed to the same uncompromising standards as all Alexander Keith’s fine beers.

    Used to be known as Alexander Keith's Stag Head Stout, 473ml can poured into a pint glass at 6 degrees:
    Thick dark pour with very dark ruby highlights topped by a semi-thick foamy head with a light tan. Head retention is mediocre and the structure doesn't recall one of a stout head. The nose gives out notes of burnt coffee beans while everything else is pretty subtle. The taste isn't on the spot with too much fading bitterness and a tremendous lack of body. You don't get that creamy mouthfeel of the usual stout and the kick from the barley. You're left with a subtle chocolate/coffee aftertaste and the urge for a real stout.
