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.

I'm sampling this back-to-back with Lion Stout. This beer has a rather sweet milk chocolate aroma with notes of dark fruit and perhaps red wine. NOt as much licorice or smoke as I detected in the Lion Stout. The flavor here is lighter as well, and I pick up more "traditional" stout flavors (milk chocolate and roasted malts) as well as some malt vinegar, woodiness, and soy. A bit creamier than Lion Stout (which had an oilier body), but not as full-bodied or rich. "So thick you could just about eat it with a spoon" is not the most truthful statement. Still, I like these salty ales. Crikey!

Black with a light brown head. Woody, smoky aroma. Quited smoked flavour with some liquorice. Very tasty. Not unlike a watered-down Thisted Limfjordsporter.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2004
An ok stout with a 'chewing on a green twig' aftertaste. Better than some but quite average.

Big old tan head that collapses densely leaving minimal lacing, lots of coffee in the aroma a hint of burnt caramel. Palate is curiously light, not in a thin (and so bad) way but in a "no sticky residue" (although I do love Sheaf and Southwark's work in this realm) manner. Quick burst of burned malt sweetness with coffee then a light bitterness off the tongue. I think prefer the other Coopers Stout currently (the special old) just on a thickness issue.

I may be crazy, but a detect a hint of red wine in the aroma. All the rest in reminescent of a classic stout.

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Bottled. Poured a very translucent black with a tan head that diminished quickly. This one was very sweet with a fruity aroma. Decent - a little more hop would've been appreciated.

madsberg (10801) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2004
Bottled: Pitch black. Thin light brown head. Long lasting. Chocolate, malt and a light roastyness in the aroma. Subdued roastyness and some fruitness in the flavour. Some coffee notes. Smooth. Nice hoppy bitterness in the end.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2004 Nice tan head with small bubbles. Tasted like strong, dry, sweet coffee with black licorice. Mellow with a deep malty taste. Mellow, light, bitter finish.

Pours a thick inky black. No light penetrates at all. Tall tan, head good lacing. Initial aromas were of roasted malt and burnt coffee, but as it warmed up some vanilla and bannana scents came out. Palate was kind of thin, but did have some nice sweet malt and burnt coffee flavors with some fruitiness in there. modrately bitter finish.
