SOUTHWARK OLD STOUT
Based on a recipe perfected by the brewery nearly 40 years ago, Southwark Old Stout is a brewers’ favourite, a great example of a fabulous Australian stout and the hero of the Dark Discovery Collection. Renowned for its rich flavours of deeply roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate, this is a dark ale built on a foundation of quality from a brewery with an impressive pedigree.
Such is the depth of Southwark’s experience in brewing dark ales that in 1963 they were entrusted with the local brewing contract for Guinness. Southwark Old Stout was launched in 1984, with the formulation based on those used for the West End and Southwark brands of the early 1960s, and then modified by the experience garnered during the Guinness years. The end result for the drinker is many years of expertise distilled into one very drinkable, deliciously flavoured beer that will awaken a love of dark ales for the novice and reinforce that love for the aficionado.
