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

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.

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 itís not to rich but prefect before bed beer. Great job Southern Star!!!!

Dark brown pour, brown head. Rich chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla, fudgey brownies, light roast. The base beer has been elevated big time!

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.

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.

Pours with a mahogany body supporting a dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up aged dark roasted malts, black licorice, earthy milk chocolate and mild sweet bourbon like booze notes. The taste has smooth yummy dark roasted malts, some spicy black licorice and smooth bourbon notes heading to midway and into the finish. It gets a bit more bourbon like into the finish as the other notes recede away. Dandy stuff.

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.

I can think of more than a few things that a black crack might be, and none of those is a beer. Itís black, yes, with a light brown head. The aroma is of light chocolate, some wood, and sweet bourbon. Itís very lively and candy-likeÖ it almost reminds me of a liquored-pecan pie. Lots of roasted malts with no bitterness and a touch of vanilla and cocoa. Fresh bourbon alcohol puckers the tip of the tongue, and a soft bourbon flavor deliciously coats the rest of it. It tastes aged, soft, and so exquisite that itís easy to forget itís, at heart, simply a stout. It rests so beautifully in the mouth that I donít want to finish the bottle, let alone swallow it.
