COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Now here’s a beer with punch. Coopers Stout is a beacon for lovers of a hearty brew. With its robust flavour comprising a blend of fruit, chocolate and hop bitter notes it’s everything a stout should be. Brewed naturally using a top fermentation method, Coopers Stout’s unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2005 Dark pour with thick but little foam. Deep, musty, semi-sweet chocolaty taste. Well balanced and smooth drinking. Soft and relatively light for a stout, but I enjoyed it. Good to turn non-stout drinkers on to the genre. [$9.99/6pk]

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Poured a light black color. Malty sweet aroma with some fruit. A little crisp apples. Roasted flavors and a light bitter finish that ran the same length as the malt finish. Mild alcohol taste at the end. Light and smooth.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 14, 2005
This bottle poured a rich, black liquid with a medium fizzy light brown head that did not last very long however it did leave some lacing on the glass. It presents a very full aroma with sweet toffee, dried fruit and chocolate. Although the mouth feel is slightly thin, the initial flavor is of rich, smooth roasted malts with a hint of chocolate and coffee. The middle and finish are earthy with a nice bitterness.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 This is really some smooth, creamy stuff. It pours out thick and black with a foamy brown head with huge roasted aromas, chocolate, malt, and coffee. It has a lively mouthfeel, well carbonated and slightly hoppy. The taste is rich roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. I’m repeating myself. This is good, even with the heavy residue seemingly so characteristic of Coopers beers.

mookie (45) - Tacoland, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2005
pours very black, foam is very nice and rich looking with different sized bead, frothy and clings to the glass as head deminishes. this must be bottle conditioned. well carbonated for a stout, but this example seems to benefit. generous roast flavor without being excessive. malt, chocolate, coffee, a little spice, and appropriate bitterness, all so well balanced. nothing harsh here. this stout has much class, very well made.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2005
Characteristically lean Australian stout and one of the best. Looks much as it should: jet-black, with a moderate head. The dense nose has espresso and dark malt characters. It’s lighter in the body than a typical Irish stout but smooth and creamy. Beautifully balanced. Malt and chocolate notes. One of Coopers’ finest ales. (Bottle)

ragesaq (71) - Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2005
This is a stout? Very forgettable, hardly stoutish at all with a very small flavor profile.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2005
UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 High light brown head on a very dark brown head. Impressions of coffee and a little chocolate there. Very nice if you want a strong lasting taste. This beer is unfiltered so, unless you want to do it the Aussie way (mix up everything), you have to be careful not to pour the "bitter end" of the bottle.

JonMoore (2022) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2005
Nearly opaque very dark ruby brown with a nice 1cm tan head. Malty, chocolate and caramel aroma, with a nicely balanced taste, malty, chocolate, coffee and some hops. Nice coffee aftertaste. Smooth, creamy and full bodied; very good.

Dorwart (2451) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Minimal head that reduces quickly. Low carbonation. Black in color and dark brown around the edges. Nice aroma with loads of malts, molasses, caramel and roasted grains. Perhaps a bit of lactose also. Creamy in the mouth. Dry and a little bitter. More roasted grains, coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is bitter and dry with a coffee aftertaste. A decent stout.
