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!!!!

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!

Graham cracker, raisin, cherry, cream. Taste is medicinal, cherry, light chocolate but it’s covered up by cherry flavor. Medium body with a fine, soft carbonation.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
