3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color is black/ruby with visable light. Had about a 2 finger tan had. Aroma was as the label would sugest but on a mild side with roasted grains and coffee/mocha. Nothing overpowering. Taste losses some of the coffee flavors and has more of the roasted grains. Mouthfeel is very thin, if I did not see the label I would think this was a light porter. Overall, glad I can get a 4 pack of pints for a reasonable price.

16 ounce bottle pours dark brown/black with a moderate tan head and good lacing. The smell is of roasted malt, and some bittersweet chocolate. The aroma is the same and not too complex, Body is medium, and mouthfeel is slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. A very good stout, which has made me a fan of Hinterland.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention is decent, and thereís a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like coffee, roasted malt, and some bittersweet chocolate. The taste is the same as the aroma, itís all coffee, roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think itís a good overall brew, and a nice coffee stout. Iíve been waiting to try this one for a while now, and I wasnít disappointed. Iím a fan of Hinterlandís 16 ounce bottles, too. $9.99 a 4-pack.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma of cold press and chlorine. Flavor is basically perfect for a coffee stout, super well balanced, delicious coffee, roast and dark chocolate flavor with just enough sweetness. Good body for 4.8% but the flavor begs for something fuller. Great beer!
