A - Pours with two fingers of tan foam on top of a black body with clear, ruby highlights. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves decent lace.

S - Nutty coffee, a bit of chocolate, and some toffee malt.

T - Dark bread up front with some dry caramel and coffee in the middle. Finishes with nutty notes and smoky coffee character as well as moderate, lingering coffee bitterness.

M - Medium-thick body, average carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Not bad, it is a very drinkable stout. The coffee character is pleasant, especially in the aroma, though it is a bit on the generic side. Overall, a mild, drinkable if unremarkable coffee beer.

Pours dark black with garnet highlights. Settles to a ring of coffee colored foam.

Smells of fresh morning coffee, light, Hawaiian roast and toasted dark malts. nice.

Taste is mild roasted coffee and medium roasted malt. No residual sweetness.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy but on the watery side. Light carbonation.

This was a decent stout but not quite what I expected. Somewhat watery but great aroma. There are much better values out there. A disappointment from Green Bay brewery compared to their IPA and Saison.

Luna is a great, bitter coffee stout that pours out a deep brown. Aroma and taste are both coffee, coffee, coffee. Hinterland is new to my area, and I know freshness matters on a coffee stout, and this is one of the better ones I've had. It's seriously got an amazing fresh coffee taste, with a touch of hops on the finish. Highly recommended.

The beer as a stout in itself is pretty solid. Consistent flavor, though it's a bit thin and could have a heavier body. The coffee tones are minimal. On the front I get a push from earthy grinds, it seems, but there is little influence showing after the first second or two. As a stout, this is nice enough. But as a coffee stout, it'd be nice to get a bit more off of the coffee.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours dark black, some foam. Mostly settles but light layer remains. Rich malty nose, nutty, with just a hint of coffee. Dark chocolate too. The taste is much more coffee than not. Full & throughout. Roasted bitter close. Smooth mouthfeel. Need a little more balance.
