The flavour lies somewhere between our Sparkling Ale and Stout but the texture and appearance is less syrupy and cleaner. Coopers Dark Ale is top fermented in the traditional manner. A combination of dark and medium-roasted malt produces this rich, flavoursome brew that's especially satisfying in nippy weather.

TedE (541) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle into glass, Coopers Alehouse, Syd Airport. Faint hop nose. Murky brown beer with film of suds. Medium body, flat mouthfeel. Surprisingly bitter for a Brown Ale. Itís alright, bit boring.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Hazy brown color beer with a light brown frothy head that goes away very quickly. Aroma is roasted with caramel and toffee notes. Flavor is sweet with almost no bitterness; fruit hints. Body is thin and carbonation is high. The end is dry with a medium duration.

The aroma is that smell you get from a sticky bar with too much shithouse beer poured on it, pours really fizzy with no head, carbonation almost instantly goes though. It tastes like an old shoe, disappointed thereís a kangaroo on the label, this doesnít represent Australian beer.

A weak brown ale. Mild and watery finish. Light toast, some sweet breadiness and then nothing.

A little light and prickly, even for a brown. The chocolate and roasty aroma and flavor are pleasant enough, but thereís little depth to them. I nuch prefer their stout."

Westkyoto77 (562) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Wasn't super impressed with this, but warmed to it as it warmed. Pitch black with rather insipid head. Notes of dark chocolate, prunes, and sourish malt. Fairly light and fizzy for an ale. Opened up a little. Malty cola aftertaste. Passable, but there are many more better dark ales than this.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 18, 2014
Dark amber brown colour with a whitish head with an aroma that leans toward the typically fruity cogniscant of Cooperís other products. The flavour has some dusty coffee and orange skinned apples and then along comes some twinges of hoppy bitterness. It dries out on the finish. Tasty enough.

A little bit light in the body. Rasins and malt but not much else. Itís pretty refreshing for a dark beer. Not a lot of hop action going on
