Alexander Keith’s Dark Ale

I was curious to see how similar this would be to Keith’s Harvest Ale, a sublime offering. Unfortunately, Keith’s Dark Ale is nowhere in the league of Harvest Ale or any dark ales or stouts.

The beer pours a deep dark brown with a thin tan head. There is a bit of roasted nut and chocolate aroma, but the aroma is lacking. While the finish is a nice, hoppy, roasted coffee-like one, the palate flavour is very lacking. It’s too watery. This beer is only 4.1% ABV, but that’s about the same alcohol content as Guinness and Guinness is not so watery on the palate. I’ll pass on this one in the future.
