COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From a legend whose origins are traced to Native American Algonquian peoples come tales of an enormous creature known as the Wendigo. Possessing characteristics part human and part monster, these beasts were said to emerge from people indulging in the ancient taboo of cannibalism. These malevolent, supernatural beings possessed great spiritual power, and were strongly associated with winter, coldness, famine, and starvation. Embodiments of gluttony, greed, and sheer excess, these Hinterlanders were never satisfied after consuming a person, and were constantly on the prowl for fresh victims in attempts to quench their lustful, never-ending desires. This wild barleywine, aged a solid year in oak barrels, exudes similar powers, calling one on a hunt to quench an unstoppable thirst. Savor the debauchery that is The Hinterlander.

Tap at brewery. Press mostly clear copper. Aroma and flavor are rich caramel and vanilla, cookie malt, fruity brett, some woodiness, and a sharp boozy finish. Medium/full body.

snoworsummer (5911) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a fizzy beige head. Smells like dried fruits, dark fruits, herb, bubblegum, and light booze. Tastes like herb, booze, cracker malt, and dried fruits. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 I get the impression from some of the reviews that this might be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of beer. Well, I love it. It is big, funky, weird, and aggressive, and it absolutely hits the spot. It pours a dark hazy brown with a little bit of head. The aroma is funky and sweet at once. Notes of red wine vinegar, brown sugar, apples, and malt. The flavor is smooth and boozy up front and then closes with this really crazy, almost sour twist that I cannot get enough of. This is a fantastic, odd, totally unique barleywine.

Flight at brewery. Dark auburn with thin head. Smells a little pooey. Not my thing. Flavor somehow reminds me of poo, too. Dry. Sorry, just not my thing.

Drake (14033) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Keg at the brewery. Clear amber. Aroma of toffee and brett. Taste is brett, earth, cherries, oak. Medium bodied, hot, bitter.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2016
On tap at Mekong. Like the lablel. Like the backstory. Didn’t much care for the beer. Wild gone wrong for me. Aroma was caramel malts, some woodsy notes, vanilla, faint hop, and everything overwhelmed by strong brett notes. Flavor matched. An oddly sweetish, somewhat alcoholic, brett bomb. Don’t get me wrong, I like brett, but this overwhelmed the rest of the brew. Could be good blended back into something else. Perhaps if some more sour funk had been present, it might have worked. Too bad, normally love Strangeways.
