COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mattyhennessy (178) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2013

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Bottled, 375ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Muddy brown with off white head. Initially there is a fairly chalky, malty note with caramel and some bitterness. This develops on to a light sweetness plus a little boiled vegetable, a hint of cabbage. Malty finish. It’s ok.

StuffWine (117) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2013
Poured a dark hazy brown with short lasting tan head. Aroma of light malt and a touch of toffee. Taste of wheat, brown bread, and a hint of yeast sourness. Moderate body, a little watery on palate, moderately long soft bitter finish. A good sessional beer when lager is just too boring.

As far as commercial Aussie dark beers go, this is a solid drop. Nice dark rich color, pleasant drinking and a clean, soft taste. Perfect as a session beer on a winters evening down the pub....

A normal beer. I was able to feel a little taste of coffee at the aftertaste.

Dark in colour but lacks character. Easy to drink but not to be savoured. Mild taste with some sediment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
