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.

Pours a deep dark brown with big tan head. Roasty, chocolately notes dominate the aroma. More of the same in the flavor, slight metallic character. Grainy. Fairly light body.

Fresh can at Borgne. Pours muddy brown with tall brown head. Aroma is light roasted coffee, caramel and chocolate. Taste incorporates those very well with some sweet, breadlike notes. Nothing stands out amongst the flavors but the malt adds nice depth and balance. Creamy and satisfying.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Roasted coffee and chicory surf fruity caramel in this half Imperial Brown Ale, half Imperial Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the dark brown with mahogany highlights.
-The soft bubbling makes the residual sugars feel like a coulis of caramel has been added in the glass.
-This works very well with a piece of steak.
-The finish is roasted malts and vague hop bitterness.
-It sure is flavourful and aromatic, but complexity is low.
-All in all, this is a nice tiramisu-like dessert brew.

D & Q Beer Mart, Houston 4-pack: Pours black with a light brown head that sticks around. Aroma is dark chocolate with an ample amount of roast and some dark coffee. Body is light considering that this beer is 8.25% abv. Nice roasty bitterness all in the taste. Light sweetness. Some nuttiness. Overall quite tasty

jgb9348 (4636) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Rich deep dark brown body with a nice one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of coffee, rich chocolate, light earthy spices and a bit of nuts - especially pecans. Medium-bodied; Strong rich earthy malts with a lot of depth and a ton of nut flavours. Aftertaste shows a good depth with cacao, rich coffee, earthy malt and a good nutty finish, all with some smooth pit fruit finishes. Overall, a nice and robust stout with some good earthiness and a smooth malty finish, all with some solid sweetness and bitterness from coffee and chocolate. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Palm Beach Gardens on 30-December-2013 for US$2.29 sampled in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida on 03-January-2014.

Can. Nice smooth stout. Almost a perfect five in my book. The brown malt stands out but they do a nice job with the balance and the finish. Looking forward to more of this beer and others from this brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrymel (1477) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Canned: unk Black ale with light cream foam rim and etching. Smells like almost nothing, some soil, some dark fruits. Flavor is more like a decent porter (not much difference between the two), soil, cocoa, a little bit of raisin. Thin bodied with low carb and a semi wet finish. Decent beer, forgettable.

onceblind (3934) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Clear heavy dark brown with a foamy creamy light beige head. Nose is of lightly grilled milk chocolate and a little earthy roast, and lots of dark cracker malt. The flavor is really nice and smooth, with a good chocolaty biscuitiness, cocoa, sweet earthy roast, and a mild vanilla bean tone. Really swell.
