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!

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.

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

Originally rated on 7/11/14. "It wasnt marked so I didnt notice the price on until i was checking out.. OUCH. But i am glad it wasnt marked for i probably would have passed it up at $12 for 16.9 OZ. Liked their Buried Hatchet Stout, absolutely love this barrel aged version.Beautiful aromas of wood, leather, bourbon, coconut, coffee, milk and dark chocolates and maple syrup. Almost black body with plenty of brownish ruby edges, the head was thin and quickly reduced to a ringed film, leaving the occasional spot of lace. Medium mouthfeel, a touch of stickiness to it. All of the flavors come at you at once, big roasted coffee, nuts, booze, chocolates, bourbon the back side finishes with the mellow woody vanilla bean notes. A half step behind my favorite Goose Island Bourbon barrel aged stout, but still awesome and worth a try, i’m thinking about spending $12 more for a head to head this winter

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!!!!

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 it’s 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.
