SHANER4 (481) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2009
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!!

madvike (2917) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2009
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 Founderís Breakfast Stout. Yum. Itís jet black, with a creamy head and lots of coffee on the nose. Thereís some roast and lactose in there too, but the taste is well balanced. Itís not too roasty with a milky coffee flavor. Itís 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.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2009
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.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours pitch black with a medium mocha head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is complex roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is the same, with lots of chocolate up front.

Juelze (1139) - 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!

tmoreau (2578) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2008
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 (2083) - 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 (496) - 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.

notalush (5006) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2008
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 - itís 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!
