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.

Starts off with a thick black pour with little to no head. Bit of an olive oil aroma - pleasant. Bit of a sweet underlying taste with hints of roasted coffee. Finishes strong - very impressed - will look for more from this brewer down under.

I really didn't like this at first (and the bar didn't give glasses) so I shook it to simulate pouring. Then it was quite good.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2003
After many weeks of pondering whether or not i liked this, i was given the opportunity to give it another shot, from a mate at work who bought me a couple of bottles. I rated it mid 2's last time, i'll rate it mid 3's this time. I think last time i had it way too cold, and i probably wasn't in the mood either. Its kind of like i remembered it on first sample. Yet somehow, it appears less stouty (even though it is quite a stouty stout). The tarry bitterness is there, so is that subtle hit of banana and the roasted malt flavour, bitterness is there, but not particulalry heavy. A nicely balanced, pretty tasty stout.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Black with a huge, light brown head. Large roasted aroma with some cherries and raisins. Milky texture, some chocolate flavours along with some burnt woods. Very solid stout.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Black with a carbonated head that quickly settles into a cola appearance. Deep chocolate shake aroma wows and parlays into a robust chocolate cocoa flavor and a palate full of black malts. Somewhat reminiscent of Black Butte--but maybe better.

This or Sierra Nevada's was the first step I took beyond that Dublin fare. Shocked me back then. Funny now it seems not the least bit extreme. Yes, too much it the over roasted taste, but I enjoyed it. Not done in a prime session, but out of the bottle in the dark, under the stars in the country. Well, maybe it was just right. If not a rerate here, I'll at least have another in a glass and ponder a bit more.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Poured black, with a dense tan head. Roasty aroma. Pretty strong roasted malt/chocolate flavors, bitter, but nice.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2003
Highly roasty and strong ash flavors. It's pretty good after the first few sips. I was a bit put off by the dry bitterness at first, but it's nice. Nutty.

notalush (4859) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2003
Dark - lasting tan head - roastiness abounds in the aroma, as well as the flavor - roasty even for a stout - very mild sweetness creeps in - decent body - a little watery in the finish, but otherwise a decent stout.

As can be expexted from Coopers---it's very good. Very smooth and drinkable, NOT meaning "watered-down", I like it a tad better than Guiness' Extra Stout. If you want a beer you can almost "munch" on, this is close.
