Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 On tap at Hinterland. Pours a rich black color with medium frothy mocha head. Nose is of intense coffee with roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is upfront with milk chocolate, light coffee and roasted malt. Carbonation is nil and the finish is creamy with a full body. Excellent stuff!

Although the last of all the samples enjoyed with Joe Karls(brewer) at the Green Bay site, definitely my favorite. Also enjoyed a pint the next day at the Whistling Swan in Fish Creek, and have tasted it in the past at the GT in Madison. Dark black/brown hue with a thick, foamy, light tan, clinging head that lasted nicely. Strong coffee, & hint of dark chocolate aroma followed by a richer, creamy, coffee/mocha flavor with a balanced malty sweetness and hop & roast dryness. Thanks, Joe for the artistry. It’s always worth the trip across the border!

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2008
On tap at the Bay brewery location. Dark black with a creamy head that laces down the glass. The nose is extremely roasty with chocolate malts and coffee. Strong and inviting. Creamy body. A touch of sweet milky creaminess in the flavor that tries to balance all that roasted coffee, chocolate and burnt malts. The sweetness is overwhelmed with bitter roast, but if that is what you’re into (like me) you’ll really enjoy this one. I can’t believe this rolls in at less than 5%. Well done, like a coffee stout should be.

Dragonfly1 (488) - Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2008
On tap at the Whistling Swan Restaurant in Door Co. Wisconsin (Fish Creek). Bought some of the coffee earlier in the day at the Luna Cafe and figured the beer must be pretty good. Lived up to the expectations (so did dinner by the way- if in Door Co and want a nice meal, this is the place). Anyways, back to the beer....On tap, jet black pour with a cappuccino-foam head. Sweet cream aroma with coffee notes and roasted nuts. Taste is similar, coffee, sweet cream, and roasted nut / cashew. Smooth and delicious.

Nitro pour - huge, lasting nitro head - a really potent combination of coffee and roasted malt in the aroma - very smooth and creamy mouthfeel - strong roast and bitter tobacco leaf - it’s hard to tell how much of the roasty flavor is from the coffee, and how much is from roasted malt (very well-integrated flavors) - nice, full mouthfeel, despite the light, quaffable nature of the style (I think this is a dry stout) - a great coffee stout.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2008
This beer poured beautifully in the class a deep dark black colour with reddish hints, full bodied, with aromas of mocha chocolate and coffee. Taste was delicious with choco-coffee flavors all the way through. Very creamy on the palate. Delightful indeed!

LtJudge (468) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pours a dark brown color with a thick and creamy tan head. A wonderful huge coffe aroma dominated the nose. Hints of chocolate, and roasted malts in there as well. Flavor is of roasted malts,coffee,chocolate and hints of vanilla peeking through as well. Great lacing on this one as well Excellent brew!

Hinterland has opened a location in Milwaukee’s 3rd Ward, which I visited yesterday (and sampled this brew). I thought this stout was quite dry, but nitrogen injection made it rather cream-y and dry at the same time. Quite pleasant. Appearance was great; the body of the beer was black but thin in consistency. Nitrogenated, so the head did that weird inversion where the bubbles appear to be going down instead of up. Aroma was a bit roasty, but I got a substantial Yoohoo (chocolate drink) aroma, which wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. Mouthfeel was quite smooth thanks to the nitrogen injection, and very dry. Despite this dry-ness, mouthfeel was still rather creamy. Flavor was dry (no real sweetness) and roasty but really quite mild. Without the nitrogen, I’m not sure how impressed with this beer I would’ve been, but as it was served to me it was quite nice. I’d recommend this beer. I had this on-tap at the Hinterland location on Erie St in Milwaukee. Hinterland doesn’t brew at this location, and the Hinterland beer served there is shipped down from Green Bay (as I understand it).

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the 2007 GTMW: Pours an opaque black with a full-lacing, frothy dense nitro light tan head. Mild aroma of sweet dark chocolate and coffee with some toasty caramel malty notes. Body starts with a somewhat thin earthy sweet dark caramel and chocolate maltiness with great espresso mocha balance toward a bittersweet roasty dark finish. A nice coffee stout.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2007
On draught at the brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin as "Hinterland Luna Stout." Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a creamy tan head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of mostly dark roasted coffee with some black malt and dark chocolate. Taste is full bodied, some piney hops and a dark roasted coffee flavor. Finish is like a cool Kahlua with a dark toasted bready malt added.
