I quite like this, what I expected from a stout but with some nice complexity to it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The body has a very dark brownish black color which is nearly opaque. The pour produces a small head that fades quickly down to a small ring of foam. It is light tan in color and makes some slick lacing on the glass. It has a solid full aroma. There is a lot of nice roasted character with sweet malted grain, caramel and dark chocolate notes. The flavor has solid roasted grain character with some sweet caramel, bitter/sweet chocolate and creamy coffee notes mixed with mild hop bitterness. The finish has mild bitterness from the hops and bitter/sweet cocoa powder fading slowly off the tongue. Its palate is slick and creamy with a viscous texture and soft carbonation.

Flaska från SB. Svart vätska med kaffebrunt skum. Knuten doft. Nästan lite tandkräm. Kaffe och bränt gummi i smaken. Tunn på gränsen till blaskig.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep black color, topped with very generous cream colored head. The retention is very nice.
There are some roasted malts in the aroma, some coffee and some nice and inviting caramel.
The taste is creamy and sweet at firts, some roasty taste and quite some coffee (although not unplesant). Finishes with some caramel and very decent bitterness.
Definitely the best Coopers I’ve had.

375ml bottle shared with mr_h. Almost black, reasonable head. Strange musty smokey aroma. dry treacle flavour. Leafy aftertaste. Unusual and interesting but not really my thing.
