4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 itís limited and very expensive.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice, subdued BA stout. Very mellow, laid-back flavor profile. I like the fact that the bourbon infuses the stout thoroughly, but is also laid back, not overtaking the beer. Not boozy at all.

This smells great and is slightly sweet and very smooth. I had the Buried Hatchet Nitro first and it was delicious. This is even better.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
1 pint 0.9 oz bottle. Poured a beautiful unfiltered dark brown with a thin cream top. Taste of vanallia esters, bourbon, oak, roasted and toasted malts, chocolate, and dark fruit. Low carbonation, medium-thick body. Very complex. This is good crack

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
A nose of chocolate/coco, roastiness, and vanilla preclude a thick black pour with a thin khaki head which produces spotty laciing. The palate is rich with roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruit, and hints of vanilla. Just the righ amount of bitter hops comes in on the finish providing a bit of burn. Nice. Full thick body and medium carbonation. Oily, slick mouthfeel. Overall, an extremely tasty andenjoyable beer. Glad I got two bottles!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
