Pours very dark brown towards black with a tan head that leaves ample lacing.
The smell is of roasted iced coffee.
The taste is of coffee grounds - iced and roasted with sweet dark malt undertone. The taste of coffee (not espresso - much more American black coffee) is roasty enough in the finish - nearly hits burnt.
Plenty of coffee here. The dark malt, other than a hint towards chocolate doesn't do much to add to the complexity - It is heavily roasted black coffee overall.
It's coffee with a dark malt backing.

Pours pitch black with a paper thin beige head that disappears in less time than it takes to say "Luna Coffee Stout," despite a hard pour. Tiny trails of carbonation and light lacing.
Dominantly chocolate. Hints of roasted coffee can be found, but not nearly enough. As the temperature slowly increases, the aroma becomes sweeter as more chocolate notes and molasses are realized.
Mild bitter coffee up front and some dark chocolate on the finish, otherwise very underwhelming.
Thin body for a stout. Light carbonation. Surprisingly dry finish.
I was very disappointed in this one. I love coffee and dark chocolate, so I should I like this, but found myself wanting more. There are much better performers in the coffee stout arena, I recommend reaching for those first.

16 oz bottle poured into a Hinterland tulip.
A - The pour creates a loosely packed, creamy tan head, which leaves adherent lace above the dark chocolate-colored beer.
S - Luna Coffee Stout opens with an expressive, appetizing aroma of roasted malt, unsweetened dark chocolate, cold-brewed coffee, and molasses for a dense and dark presence.
T - The bold, full aroma suggests this beer to be heavier in flavor and feel, but it drinks quite the contrary. Tons of heavily roasted, black coffee builds in intensity but the dark malt of Luna wins out with overly roasted bitterness, hints of bittersweet chocolate, and a dry cocoa finish that almost tastes singed.
M - Luna's appearance and aroma will trick you into thinking that this beer will be a meal in the glass but it's body is no thicker than a cup of black coffee in the morning. Thin and flimsy, this stout boasts tons of coffee and roasted malt which brings too much acrid bitterness, but little heft to back up the powerful flavor.
O - Hinterland's Luna Coffee Stout makes a good first impression with it's aromatic scent of roasted malt and coffee but it's overuse is too much for such a small, light beer, overwhelming in flavor with little body or sweetness to compensate for the acrid bitterness. What I'd love to see in Luna is less roasted malt and more body-building, sweetness adding specialty maltiness such as caramel - it could add really nice balance and body without adding too much alcohol.

I did not have the proper glassware for this stout, all I had was a shaker pint, with that said. A very dark brown to black color. A nice tall tan head that I lost about halfway through. Great lacing to the end. Smells obviously of coffee, dark roast coffee meets chocolate. Not as smooth as I was anticipating, almost lighter feeling than expected. Very good stout, was not disappointed.
