3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very safe traditional Australian tasting stout. Hard to split the differance from Carlton Black to Abbotsford Stout. As usual a quality product from Coopers Brewery

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
My favorite Cooper’s offering and one of the better beers from the really big breweries in Australia (although maybe not if you consider Little Creatures and the ilk that have been bought out)...
Poured from a stubby. Dark brown with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is dark roast coffee and malt. Palate is thin and carbonated, better after its gone a little flat. Flavour is coffee, malt, sweet and biscuit.
It’s certainly not the best brown in town, but at $16 a sixer, it’s drinkable and value for money.

I know it is a little low in alcohol at on 4.5 %,but the flavours,taste and aroma are all there to be enjoys.
Cooper’s always deliver a good beer and this one along with the extra stout are brilliant.
Cooper’s dark is delicious with anything off the grill!

Found tasting notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. Bottle to glass from Brick, Melbourne. Caramel, medium malt. Thin, but smooth texture. One of my favorites down under.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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. It’s alright, bit boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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 there’s a kangaroo on the label, this doesn’t represent Australian beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A weak brown ale. Mild and watery finish. Light toast, some sweet breadiness and then nothing.
