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.

This beer has a good head, beige, with excellent lacing. The sweet aroma has notes of toasted malt and the complex body is smooth and full of flavour and bitterness.

Not the thickest beer I've consumed but I loved the strong dried fruit notes. Very nice balance makes

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Very dark, almost completely opaque, with a short and short-lasting, but thick, head, and nice lacing. Aroma is roast coffee with hints of raisin/prune. The coffee predominates in the taste, as the combination of roasted malt and hops prevent the fruit notes from making it very sweet, and also do a good job of concealing the alcohol level. The body is not that thick, but it does coat the tongue a bit.

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!love all the different reactions to this one. Importer is bad about shipping old shit to the distributors and waiting for suckers to buy it. On the neck is an ink code date, something like 080703(or 2), which means August 7, 2002 it came out of the brewery. Drink it fresh and your drinking with the best. Up there with Carnegie, Koff Porter and Courage Imperial. TRUE DELIGHT for a stout.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Pitch black with an ephemeral dark brown head. What little lacing there was quickly aligned itself into a yin-yang shape on top of the beer. Weird. Anyway, this stout is definitely different. Has an aroma and flavor replete with red grapes of all things. There is also a prune-like, somewhat musty quality to the aroma. Otherwise a fair bit of sweetness balanced by a good bit of black patent malt. A trace of milk chocolate flavor shows itself. Had an oily appearance and texture that I didn't care for, and the flavor was a little aliphatic also.

3fourths (8020) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] Deep black pour, medium brown head. Smells of roasted coffee. Taste of sharp roasted goodness. Not a fruity or sweet stout, but very good out of the bottle.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2003
So the session has some eccentric stouts - Youngs’ Oatmeal, Dragon, and this one, and Cooper’s takes the prize as best of show. It has a great balance between richer, sweeter notes of chocolate and dark fruits and a strong dry roasted edge keeping it real. Nice stout.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Dark, rich, and a great aroma. Very true to style. The finish is a touch thin, but leaves a good roasty chocolate taste that lingers. Overall, very good, and I never would’ve guessed this was any more than 5% abv.

Black with thin brown head and lace. Subdued nose of black milky/doughy malt, roasted barley, prunes, touch of caramel, oat and others. Reminds me of youngs oatmeal for some reason. Smooth, moderately carbonated, sweet malt, oats and caramel at first, mild oxidation, licorice, mildly roasted barley, exquisite dryness and coffee bitterness (not too much by any means) to counter beginning sweetness. A really good stout with alot going on. Im suprised at the disparity in the ratings. Must vary from bottle to bottle?
