Coopers Best Extra Stout

Coopers Brewery


I have to say that this is probably the most easy-drinking stout I've ever had. It was a hell of a lot like a dark lager. There was that roasted malt taste, but it wasn't heavy like Guinness, Sam Smith's, etc. I probably could've killed off a few of these in a sitting. Now, part of that is a good thing, but if you're looking for a hearty stout, something for a cold winter night, maybe this isn't so good. I could handle this in the summer, but wintertime I want something that will stick to my ribs. Good, but won't knock your socks off.

Cooper's, eh? Mind if we call it Bruce? Pretty solid stout, especially if you swirl and add the sediment. Jet black, smoky chocolate/coffee flavor. Smooth and dry. Don't be a bloody Sheila, pick some up! (Wonder if that review sounds as irritating to an Aussie as it did to me...)
