16 oz bottle poured into a Hinterland tulip.
5.6% ABV

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.

Picked up a pint bottle from the local Binny's. Never really heard of it before, but I thought I would give it a try.

A- Pours an almost opaque black color with a little bit of tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Pretty lightly carbonated and no real lacing to speak of.

S- The smell has a good deal of coffee aromas as well as chocolate. Sweet and malty, but no real hop aroma.

T- Pretty sweet taste, a lot of coffee flavor as well as chocolate.

M- I was surprised at how light the mouthfeel of this beer is. It is not as creamy or chewy as most other stouts.

O- A solid stout for the price. Not the most complex beer for the style, but still a flavorful brew.

1 PINT bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is very dark with some ruby highlights. It is capped with three inches of cocoa head.

S - I smell some dark chocolate and coffee.

T - The taste is a lot weaker than the smell. Actually, it starts out weak and builds. I first notice some coffee bitterness on the finish. I get some coffee the more I drink.

M - Moderate. It seems awfully thin for a stout.

O - The coffee flavor is bitter. The mouthfeel is too thin. It's one of the poorer stouts that I have tried.
