SOUTHWARK OLD STOUT

Southwark Old Stout. Originally created by the South Australia Brewing Co, this beer appears to be brewed by Lion (the Evil Empire formally known as Lion Nathan).

It’s brewed in the style of the ‘London Imperial Russian Stout’ and with its rich dark malt flavours and relatively high 7.4% ABV, it’s clearly a winter beer. Just as well winter is approaching, then.

Very dark brown colour with a fine tan head. Nice dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

The first thing I notice is the body and mouthfeel is quite thin for a stout. However, it packs a decent dark chocolate and roasted coffee malt flavour. It reminds me of Coopers Extra Stout except for the thinner body.

The alcohol is well hidden, with no boozy or sweet flavours with a decent dose of bitterness to balance the malt. It’s like a mix between Coopers Extra Stout and Tooheys Old.

At around $AU53 per case of 24x375ml stubbies, it’s pretty good value.

 

7/10
