16 ounce bottle courtesy of Mr. Pickles. Thanks! 5/12/10. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin head. Good head retention and lacing. A nice dry aroma with notes of coffee, roast and light caramel. The taste is bitter fresh coffee with a bit of a sweet note, bitter roasted malts and bitter hops. Very dry, very bitter, but still good. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy. Nice beer.

Four pack of 16 oz bottles from Sendik’s Whitefish Bay.
Pours not quite black, but very dark. Aroma is all coffee, with a stong coffee flavor. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter, which is my only complaint. Overall, a good coffee stout.

On tap at Fox Cities Brewfest. Pour was dark with a dominant aroma of well blended coffee and chocolate. Flavor was kind of light balanced toward the copious amount of coffee then ending with some sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Nice brew.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Nitro On tap at the brewery in GB - Poured jet black with thick tan head
Aroma - funky litter box and coffee scent.
Flavor - not good, tastes like a litterbox smells along with nasty bitter coffee. Had a hard time choking this one down!!
Palate - medium creamy mouthfeel with no carbonation. Finish is bitter and thankfully has little aftertaste.
Overall - Nasty beer and would not wish this on any seasoned beer drinker. Every beer I have had from Hinterland sucks and they are 1 mile from my house...damn the luck!!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro tap @ The Cookery in Fish Creek, WI - I had a lot of beer in my week in Door County, but this was by far the best. It looks sexy, it feels sexy, and it smells and tastes like Founder’s Breakfast Stout. Yum. It’s jet black, with a creamy head and lots of coffee on the nose. There’s some roast and lactose in there too, but the taste is well balanced. It’s not too roasty with a milky coffee flavor. It’s good quality coffee with a nice bitter finish. Feels like velvet in the mouth. So impressed with this beer, and I will seek it out if they bottle it.

Draft in Milwaukee. Opaque black with a thin tan head. Smooth nitro mouthfeel with a decided coffee edge. A touch watery, as per the style I suppose. Good stuff, albeit rather middle-of-the-road. Chocolate milkshake finish.
