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.

Tasted 8/17/10. Pint bottle. Pours pitch and opaque. Webbed khaki head. Aromas of coffee, toffee and dark chocolate with a touch of fudge and burnt toast. Very nice aromatics! Medium bodied with a good malt roast. Moderate coffee flavor. Nutty flavors. Crisp astringency mixed with a rounded malty body. Nicely done!
