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.

Pretty much the same as what everyone is saying. A dry expresso flavour. I don't mind the bitterness and find it a bit abrasive.

Expresso nose, oily texture. Initially a bit acrid but ballances out just fine as it warms up. A sour note, but that's ok for a stout. Good.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Bitter? hmmm....sure I guess, but I found the bitterness so dry it was more of a parched espresso mixed with thick smokiness. There is a kind of swelling intensity to the flavor that is best at the finish - the espresso mellows out and your left with simply a pleasurable smooth roasted flavor. A decent stout, but nothing to write home about.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2003
chocolate and coffee flavours bitter roasted malts, i found the dry bitterness a bit too much for my tastes but concede that it's a nice drop.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Black, opaque pour that has a small tannish head. Aroma is very light. Mostly roast malts, some fruits, maybe grapes. A nice flavor of roast malt, some mocha and chocolate. Medium bodied, finishes with a touch of bitterness. Good stout.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2003
12.7 oz bottle, snifter, 55 degrees F. Very large, creamy, rocky, brown head diminishes slowly and sits on a nearly opaque black body. Mild coffee, molasses, dark chocolate (H); plum, ruby port, smoke aromas. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic throughout with a moderate bitterness in the finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: a little weak in the flavor, but quite nice otherwise.

KBeer (117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2003
A pitch black stout that has a wonderful cofee aroma. It has a wonderfully rich taste and hardly seems the relativily high 6.3%ABV.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2003
A very dark and oily pour, with little to no head. A very subtle roasted aroma. Flavor is very roasted, subtle and slightly light in the mouthfeel.

Terminus (3327) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 15, 2003
bottle-i dont know about this one. I think my bottle may have been old and/or infected. The aroma was way off-smelled very sweet and somewhat skunked. I will have to re-rate this brew. I could see this brew being pretty good with a fresh sample.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2003
This is more like it. A good strong oily stout that provides some competition to its South Australian opposition, Southwark. It loses the battle however, not because of a lower ABV but through a thinness and sometimes sour note. Good colour and burnt chocolate nose that shows hints of the diacetyls common in the ales. The head lasts well.
