Wow!!! I lucked into this bottle and wish i could find more. 16.9oz bottle pours dark murky brown with a small beige head with great lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla and bourbon. Taste like candy made of bourbon, chocolate and hints of vanilla to smooth out the bourbon. I could drink this beer everyday for dessert it’s not to rich but prefect before bed beer. Great job Southern Star!!!!

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Opened with little carbonation. Pours with very thin head and medium/dark brown pour with light brown highlights at the edge. Gingerbread and prunes in the nose. Strong prune taste and light mouthfeel with acidic finish.
