Coopers Brewery Best Extra Stout

The next Superbowl beer is Coopers Brewery Best Extra Stout. It's imported from Australia, and therefore costs an arm and a leg.
It doesn't taste too stouty, but it does have that bitter stout aftertaste. The aftertaste starts before you even finish swallowing, and lingers for a good long time. Don't drink it after eating anything sweet. Bleh.

The first taste is bright, with a hint of sweet, and lively. It's tangy in a pleasant way, sort of like a tart piece of fruit. It's a refreshing beer, and not as heavy as most stouts. But, since I prefer the sweeter stouts, I think there's room to improve. However... there's a kangaroo on the American bottle, so it gets coolness points.
