COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Now hereís 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 itís everything a stout should be. Brewed naturally using a top fermentation method, Coopers Stoutís unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt.

Wow, itís 10:30 AM and this is one nice way to start the day. A rich dark brown/black, little head. Slightly overcarbonated.Itís odd but the faint taste of pomegranate makes itís way through the roasted barley. Not as thick as I expected. I ended last night with a Castlemaine Carbine Stout, given a choice again, I will take the Coopers!

For a stout this high in ABV, it seems to be rather light in flavour and lacks complexity. It is rather well balanced and fairly sweet. Not bad, but I was expecting much more.

Coopers always produces a great beer, great bitterness with a mouth full of flavour, if my only bad point is i wish it had a bit more creaminess on the palate.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2002
Very black, with a medium dark brown head and heavy lacing. Bitter flavor and looong bitter finish. A little over carbonated.

oil pan black with cloudy umber edge. smallish pale tan head. pernot anise aroma and peat. surprisingly bitter (if you havenít read the previous discriptions)but me and the boys concur that that ainít a bad thing. the bittering hops may be itís most distinguishing aspect.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2002
Deep black body & long lasting tan head. Strong coffee taste with some licorice, not chocolate. Slight bitter aftertaste of medium length. Slightly less enjoyable than Southwark for me. But with the attributes Iíve described, you might prefer this.

pilsnerrogge (2533) - FinspŚng, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2008 Bottled:
Black with a firm, brown head. Well roasted -almost smoked- aroma with notes of coffee and sweet liquorice. Flavour is somewhat sourish, well roasted coffee with a long bitter/harsh finish. Somewhat thin mouth feel.

Great stout with more coffee notes than chocolate which I like. Agree that it could be thicker but still very enjoyable.

Ernest (6342) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (but not opaque), bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/nuts, chocolate), with light notes of charcoal and smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Roasty and nutty elements lightly blanketed with ashen embers. Sourish, British/Irish-style stout. Decent, but "so thick you can eat it with a spoon"? I think not.

Great stout, glad to see one doesnít have to get one from the British Isles for it to have real stout flavor. Good warm or cold, dark and inky, little head action.
