Murky, muddy brown with almost no head. Aroma is vanilla spice, bourbon, caramel. Sweet, thick, rich. Bourbon and burnt caramel, with enough spice to cut the bourbon.
Just delicious. Damn shame it’s limited and very expensive.

Awesome stout. Nothing but true chocolate with a slight hint of bourbon. One of the best stouts i've ever had.

Magnificent beer! This is Southern Star's Buried Hatchet Stout aged in bourbon barrels and results in a sweet stout beer with hints of bourbon and chocolate. Delicious!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear ruby black, small tan head, creamy, dissipates fairly quickly, nice lacing. Aroma is pretty vanilla forward, candy, milk chocolate, caramel. Flavor is sweet, actually less so than I expected from the aroma, vanilla, chocolate, english toffee, Worthers, bourbon. Light bitterness as well. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. A desert beer with a lingering bourbon finish.
