Nice lacing and head retention. Smell is bourbon, coffee, cacao. Taste is similar, with soy sauce, vanilla. Long changing finish, bourbon and sweetness at first, turns into french roast coffee flavor.

Draft at D&T. Aroma is is sweet and dark. Appearance is black with a little tan head. Taste is sweet from the bourbon, and dark from the stout. Finishes dry from the darkness. Palate is dry and dark. Overall, a good beer. I thought the bourbon would come through more, but hey, buried hatchet is a bad ass beer on its own.

Interesting spin on a great beer. The aroma was of bourbon and coffee. The color was dark but not complete around the edges as it became lighter. It looked like a messy homebrew. The palate was average with decent carbonation. The flavor started with bourbon and roasted malts but finished with an intense coffee flavor. Good but not better than the original.

16 oz. bottle via Texas trade. Thanks, Brian! Pours a deep brown with some amber shining through and an inch of khaki head that leaves spots and streaks of lace. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, coffee with cream, leaves, toast, and plums. Flavor of plums, berries, vanilla, chocolate, nuts, toast, and earth. Some oak and bourbon. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty, fruity mouthfeel. Too much fruit. A little off.
