Slightly better this time. Pours well and retains tan head throughout. Pleasent roasted coffee and burnt chocolate notes throughout. My main complaint is its just to carbonated. I thought I was crazy while drinking it until I read some other reviews that mentioned it as well. I like a nice smooth, creamy stout which are about the only two areas this beer is lacking in. Taste and pour are excellent, just needs some work in the body shop.

My experience was of loads of dark fruits cut through with sharper fruits like apple, yet balanced throughout with chocolate and coffee. A very pleasing stout, but not outstanding. I disliked the constant background fizz which seems to be a trademark of Coopers. Rating 6

Black as coal and sits in the glass like it. The head disappeared within seconds. The aroma was a bit offsetting as it initially reminded me of cheaper beer but it seemed to change as I drank it. The flavor is a nice roasted malt. I think I prefered the aftertaste more than actual initial taste which I find quite strange. Seemed a bit thin. An ok stout but very very odd.

Donít blink or you will miss the head. The usual coffee and toasted malt flavours, a nice black colour, body does seem a tad thin but good anyway.

Noticeable roasted malt aroma some fruitiness. Medium bodied, strong roasted malt, would even say smoky. Underlying apple like fruitiness, light hop bitterness.

Not really bad, but not great either. It was kind of thin, but I like the high ABV. I like my stouts to be a little more bitter.

Iím not normally a stout bloke, so this one is hard to judge. But if I had to drink only stout, this is not a bad drop.
