You hold in your hand a stout for stout lovers. Buried Hatchet is brewed with a large quantity of brown malt reminiscent of a traditional pre-Industrial Revolution malt profile. This stout is full of robust, roasted flavors which intermingle with a bittersweet creaminess that concludes to a perfect, warming finish.

Poured from a can. Thick, dark brown body with a light foamy brown head. The aroma is...stouty, I suppose. The flavor is bittersweet, and leaves something to be desired. There's something off I can't quite put my finger on. Not bad, but not a work of genius either.

Pours black into a mason jar from can with a cloudy white thin head. Aroma is heavily roasted malts. Taste is very sweet with some hints of roasted flavors like coffee. Tiny bit or chocolate . Mouthfeel is a bit thick with gentle carbonation

Canned. Pours a pitch black color with a small tan head. Aroma is lots of roasted malts and chocolate. Little bit of coffee. Flavor is similar. Roasted malts and chocolate dominate. Coffee bitterness in the finish. Body is a LITTLE weak for such a strong Stout. But overall very nice. No booziness at all for such a strong Stout.

Road beer - can straight to the dome. I would imagine this would look deep brown, hopefully it would have a good head too. Roasty, somewhat earthy, some caramel, lightly grassy, light cocoa and doughy aroma. Taste is light chocolate, some coffee, heavy brown sugar, earthy, kind of twangy and a weird toasted bread note that seems to linger. Medium body with high carboantion. Run of the mill.

We’ve been buying half barrels of this fabulous stout (at the same price I might add) every 3 months for 4 years now! No ... we’re not a commercial enterprise, it’s just us 2, at home with our friends, loving the smooth bready satisfying completeness of this outstanding stout. It’s a terrific end of the workday treat and a weekend "get relaxed" brew! We’ve tried so many stouts over the years I can’t count them and BH outshines them all!! Our opinion of course. If you like stouts, give this a try, you’ll undoubtedly fall in love like we did! Thank you SS!!!!

Can from a trade split 2 ways. Fridge is 44F in stemware. here. dark chocolate, 2 finger head, light and easy to see through in the light. Nose is bursting with chocolate and some cedar chips / mulch. Taste is roasty, creamy mouthfeel, some pistachio and walnuts and wood with a chocolatey finish. not terrible.

Appearance: medium dark brown, with clear caramel colored edges and a nitro head and lacing that was thick and off-white. Aroma: nitro-suppressed nose was on the light side, with some chocolate, chicory coffee, slightly singed caramel. Taste: dark chocolate, vanilla, hint of charred wood, caramel, toffee, hint of pine and coffee. Finish: typically abrupt nitro finish, with just a bit of lingering general roast. Notes: Nitro draught at the Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas. Pretty enjoyable stout--decent enough. Palate was surprisingly light for an 8.25% abv beer, and the abv was well-hidden. Wondering if this may be one of those beers that’s better not on nitro. Seemed...toned down. Paired well with the sliders.

Poured at 60 degrees. Smells malty with very light smoke. Tastes of light hints of coffee, smoke and finishes with bitter chocolate.
