A beer to share with friends who love all things British. A style that is not mine. beer I miss tour and complexity

This one's best by 2010, so rating is set to current average.

Aroma is dominated by caramel and cocoa. Fairly sweet, with syrupy fig notes.

Flavor is slightly vinous upfront, becoming fudgy and roasty bitter at the finish.

Past its prime, but still enjoyable.

Jet black, thin head which disappear quite fast. The burnt taste is too strong. Alcohol is hidden well. The bitter after taste linger for some time.

I had this one a long time ago and just recently had it again in Chiang Mai. I can't recommend this beer highly enough. It's a fantastic stout and is strong, but not too strong, while remaining smooth to drink. It's very flavorful initially and gets stronger as you go down, and proves rich in its aftertaste. I will get this one again.

Jet black pour with tight, creamy tan head which disappeared fairly quickly; minimal lace. Burnt grain and toasty malt nose. Roasted malt and slightly burnt; bittersweet dark chocolate; bitter finish. Dry medium mouthfeel; smooth creamy tongue coating. Medium carbonation. Strong long lasting bitter linger.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA.
This is a dark black beer with a large tan head. The aroma is a blend of chocolate, roasted coffee and maybe some malt. the flavor is nice with the roasted flavor carrying the day. Very enjoyable, i would drink this again.

Best after 4/21/14. Pours dark as a starless night. World class head volume, lacing and retention.

Outstanding nose of chocolate, roast and a hint of coffee. Underneath are notes of black cherry, anise and currant.

Almost medium bodied with a rich smooth texture that has creamy moments. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescence from the middle on ending with a nice prickly finish.

The outstanding flavor profile is intense, but not harsh, somewhat complex and well balanced. All flavors of the nose are present, but never separate very much. Light fruit notes (currant, cherry) begin then flow to a mild subtle roast bitterness in the middle that also has a hop influence. Chocolate makes it's strongest showing in the finish during the slow fade as does a bit of uncovered alcohol.

"Best" is a bold claim, Coopers. I've had better. It isn't a terrible beer, but it isn't anything special for stout. The taste is bitter, the feel isn't smooth, it reminds me of an imperial stout overall and I'm not a fan of those.

From bottle, A blend of fruit, chocolate and hop bitter notes .This beer's unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt. Not to bad.
