When I finish work I know there is the one thing that tops off my day. Three longnecks of Coopers Best Extra Stout! It is smooth, aromatic with lovely flavours and it is just so bloody easy to drink!

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2004 I think this is the first twist-off bottle I've rated. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a pitch black liquid light can not penetrate with a generous amount of caramel colored head that collapses, but lingers. Aroma is of plum, chocolate, raisin, molasses, sweet. Flavor is very complex, but gives hints of its character including a potent and deeply rich, lightly burned coffee. A closer inspection reveals an ever so slight hoppy character that can easily be bypassed by quaffing mouthfuls. Outstanding brew - I mean WOW. A slight hop is its only flaw. Must have again. Sampled at 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

A stout on steroids- looks, feels, smells and tastes great. A nice blend of bitter and sweet.
This came as a beer of the month club item, and I usually dread when they ship a stout; but I’d actually buy this onr. I’ve never said that about a stout before; even if it came from Ireland; and you know who I mean.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I love the commercial description. Pours thick black w/ a shallow spritzy froth. Aroma is full w/ malt, coffee, and chocolate. Full nectar w/ mellow residual effers. Flavors are chunky and full w/ big cocoa, coffee, tobacco, and earth. Perect bttering on the finish w/ some charcoal. Overall: very decadent. Like it says, you can almost eat it with a spoon. Highly recommended.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12.7oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.
Appearance: 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.
Smell: It has a solid full aroma. There is a lot of nice roasted character with sweet malted grain, caramel and dark chocolate notes.
Taste/Mouth: 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.
Notes: Outstanding!!! This beer is very enjoyable and is surprisingly easy to drink.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 Bottle from Oddbins. Black, and I mean VERY black, with thin tan head. Wine-alcohol aroma with lots of roast malt and treacle/molasses. Immediate hit of bitter, dark malt on the tongue that gives way to a very pleasant dry/hop finish. Excellent balance of carbonation and smoothness. This is possibly my favourite Aussie beer. Top notch.
