Dark brown pour with a foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is somewhat bittersweet and ashy. Meh.

(bottle) I generally dislike coffee in beers, as the integration of coffee within the beer is oftentimes poorly executed, but this was a pint-size bottle which was reasonably priced, so I decided to give this a try. Pours jet black with a large light tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. I knew the quality of this stout would be readily determined by how the coffee smelled within the aroma, and I was immediately met with disappointment. Over-extracted, stale, oxidized, green bell pepper, sour and ashy all come to mind as Iím smelling this. I even consulted with my french press that housed some old grounds, and the scents were very similar. Flavor is regrettably the same with an obnoxious spike of tartness followed by roasted malt, maybe some chocolate, and oily dark roasted coffee bean. Palate leaves a bile-esque taste in the mouth. This is pretty harsh. I may have to give up coffee beers after drinking this, and even though those that are well-executed can be quite good, itís too much effort and wasted money to sift through the higher-rated dreck to find them.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
500mL at DC Elite. Poured a clear, deep ruby with tan bubbles and no real head formation. Aroma of sweet dark fruits, rich coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is dry cocoa, sweet chocolate, slight coffee grind astringency, a bit of ashtray. A bit harsh and nearly tart actually.

Black color/ fleeting tan head. Big mocha, milk chocolate, coffee aromas. smooth mouthfeel with soft co2. Nice sweet mocha latte flavors with a mildly bitter, astringent finish. Thanks Jason for this bottle!

Chocolate nose. Very dark with a lacy tan head. Distinct flavors of coffee and chocolate with notes of roasted barley malts. Bitter aftertaste. Good sipper.

dekester1 (354) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Hinterland tapper was a very dark brown/black color with a tan, fine head and lace that maintained throughout. Aroma was primarily of coffee with a malt and hoppy follow-up. Taste was similar although the coffee hues both started and finished. Overall, one of the bettter coffee stouts I have experienced.

Smells like fine roasted coffee. Tastes like a fine Stout. Big bottle, lots of alcohol, good price. Flawless beer all around.

Bottle pours deep brown with a tan head. Aroma shows notes of chocolate, roast malt, green coffee, and cigarette ash. Flavor shows the same. Overall body is thin, with a lightly roasted/bitter finish.

Dark brown pour, light brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, old cigarettes. Flavor is watery coffee, chocolate, and cigarette ashes. Weird.
