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! PawelD (311) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUN 26, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Kolor czarna smoła, brudnobiała piana, średnio obfita, i szybko opada. W zapachu śliwki, słodka czekolada, likier wiśniowy, kawa. W smaku jak belgijskia czekolada z likierem, śliwkami, wiśniami, czuć też palony słód ale ciągle na granicy słodyczy.Bardzo kremowe, gładkie jak aksamit ciało. Bardzo rozgrzewa przełyk zostawiająć przyjemną goryczkę od chmielu na średnim poziomie która bardzo przyjemnie zalega lekkim popiołem. Genialny Foreign Extra. ratkillers (2) - USA - MAR 28, 2007 does not count
Bought two bottles at Times Supermarket in Hawaii. Loved the smell, loved the color, good flavor and the aftertaste was heavenly smooth :) roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2003
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. nobadbeer (4) - centerville,, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2008 does not count
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.

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. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
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.

amazing stout with coffee and licorice flavors and slightly strong. very interesting. i liked everything about it. highly recommended. Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Deep black beer with a big, frothy dark brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, liquorice and coffee. Flavor is a balanced combination of sweetness and bitterness with hints of coffee and chocolate. Oily body and sticky and bitter long end. Low carbonation.

A great rich stout. Now one of my all-time favorites.
