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.

Bottle: Nearly absolutely black colour; small brownish, foamy head, lacing; complex nose: roasted malts, coffee, port; starts malty, nearly no sweetness; light bitter flavour, oily texture; long complex dry aftertaste: toffee, chocolate, coffee. Very good !

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2005
(Bottled) Opaque, nearly black color with a small, fading head. Very burned-malty, ashy and dryish aroma with port-wineous hints. Wineous, roasty, quite malty flavor with ash. Medium-bodied, not very thick palate with quite high carbonation. A burned-malty, but not very sophisticated stout.

DuffMan (8801) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2005
I think two factors lead to my disappointment with this stout. The first is that I tried it after the Special Stout, the second is the promise on the bottle that it is so thick "you can eat it with a spoon". Hardly. Not a bad stout at all, just nowhere near the body or complexity that is suggested on the label.

thedm (5355) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 10, 2005
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized mostly lasting brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and dark black brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of brown malts molasses dark malts and was nice. Its mouth feel is initially tingly mildly hopped vinous and has a slight coffee aftertaste. Its flavor contained strong dark malt and medium hops notes and was tasty. An above average brew.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Pours an opaque jet black with a very very small amount of tan head that dissapates in less than 10 seconds. Aroma is absolutely delicious: chocolately dry coffee with hints of burboun and roasted malts. Flavor is creamy and dry, with mostly roasted nutty malts and very bittersweet, like unsweetened chocolate. Overall, I found this beer to be extremely good and very underrated.

jonas (6479) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle from Dortmunder - my first foreign stout - thanks a lot!
Sugary sherry aroma. Blacker than Voldemorts heart, caramel head dissipates fast. Carbonized sugar sets the background - chewy fruity malt on top and a bitter hop and dark chocolate finish. Coffee exhaling. Relatively light body - a hint of stickyness, delicately so. Sparkly mouthfeel lightens it up. Enjoyably drinkale stout.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle, rating from old notes. Black pour. Chocolate roasty ymalty aroma. Sweet malt flavors, with chocolate and some vanilla and some fruitiness to it too.

dwyerpg (5220) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Pretty aromaless and fairly headless. My first thought: Porter! Bases solely on its sweetness. Interesting, it reminds me of the dark beers I had in the Czech Rep. as well, the dunkels. Its a real mix of styles, truly. Porter, then dunkel, then stout. A good beer for sure.

Nice suprise. Pours like oil. Almost no head. Little carbonation. Strong roasted barley flavor. good but not great.

clippo66 (3) - DUBBO, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2005 does not count
A stout I had not tried before. A very black mysterious beer with small and not too persistent dark coloured head. Typical chunky Coopers bottle conditioned beer. A dry, full flavoured stout with plenty of character. Will definitely buy more this winter.
