Pitch black stout that is very peculiar. The scent is light but with hints of roasted malt and coffee. The taste differs not overly much except that it's very sweet for being a dry (?) stout. I can find coffee and roasted malt in the taste but with a little licorice and soap.
A very sweet and sour stout that I surely will drink again.

Solid drop, although that's to be expected from the Coopers Family. Have spent many a day drinking their pale and sparkling ale and somehow had never sampled their stout. From a 750ml longneck into a pint glass. Best after 20 April 2014. A: Looks a solid black with a nice dark coffee head. S: Smells a nice bitter chocolate, with a little vanilla and coffee too. T: like it smells...chocolate, fudge and some coffee bitterness. Overall a solid stout that id be happy to drink any day. Not a complex example of the style, but a great go-to for a daily drop...keep a couple, or a case, in the fridge and you've got guaranteed satisfaction if you're yearning for something dark. Certainly give it a go.

A: Large three finger tan head with an aggressive pour. The head dissolves to a film and leaves pretty nice lacing. Body is opaque black.
S: Nice chocolate. Then it has that bitterness that I always associate with export stouts. There is some coffee roast in there as well with a little bit of dark fruit.
T: Very similar to the nose. Bitter export stout taste with some dark roast. Nice dark chocolate on the swallow.
MF: Very nice. It is slightly thicker than a normal export stout and I think that helps. It is a little creamy. Medium.
O: Export stouts aren't usually my thing, but this was pretty good.
