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.

Can. Nice stoutly pour -- thick and black with a giant foam top, even if it does give up pretty quickly. The aroma is very nice, rich with a down-home brewery roasty maltiness. The beer drinks with a nice well-bodied mouthfeel, rich with licorice, raisin, plum and dark cherries. De ... lish ... is. (#3993, 9/26/2010)

merci à markwise pour cette cannette. brune foncée, col est couleur moka. arôme, pleine de malte, superbe note de café et chocolat. gout, ahhhh ce goût est génial, rempli de café de ce goût de malt grillé, palais est sec et croustillant. Balance est parfaite avec une touche de noisette, chocolat est aussi présent et moyen au palais. Je perçois aussi qcq notes de malt fumé.

Pours a very nice, thick black with a creamy white head. Aroma is dominated by chocolate and coffee, but also small hints of wood. Flavor is mostly chocolate, coffee, and caramel, some nuts as well. Nice sweet finishing stout!

Buried Hatchet has a medium, creamy, beige head (which quickly dissipates) and a very dark, almost black, very deep, and very clear (under light) red appearance. The aroma is of very strong coffee and dark-roasted barley malt. Taste is of dark chocolate, strong coffee, and dark malt. Also, a fairly strong alcohol flavor permeates the sip. Mouth-feel is thick and heavy. Buried Hatchet finishes dense and alcoholic. I felt the alcohol effects in my head even thirty minutes after finishing a 12 oz. sample. Overall, even though this stout has unique characteristics, I’d say that it’s only okay, not super. But, it is worth a try. RTJ

Thanks to crajun for this one in trade. Pours dark brown with an off-whiten head. Nose is coffee, cocoa, earth, dark chocolate, and slight hops. Flavor is similar with cocoa and chocolate all over. Very enjoyable with lingering cocoa and earthy dark chocolate in the finish. Light to medium bodied for a stout. For a canned stout from Texas, this one is one of the most underestimated, yet most enjoyable stouts.

Thanks to Crajun for this can. This is a pretty good version of a style I am not all that crazy about. Lots of sweet roasty malts. Alcohol is hidden well. Why isn’t this an imperial? What the heck do I know anyway. I’m am smoking some meats in my backyard on this Labor Day - so this goes well with that.

(Bottle from BMan1113VR, sampled 4/18/10). Dark brown color. Large tan head, which is mostly diminishing. Moderate roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate aroma. Flavor of the same, with light sweetness. Long duration. Moderate bitter finish. Slick creamy texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

Very deep dark brown pour. A nice layer of rapidly dissipating tan head leaves almost no lacing behind. Aroma just SCREAMS stout - very roasty malty scents dominate here with just a hint of coffee and chocolate - very nice. Flavor is a bit more uninspiring and ordinary, but still tasty. The roasted aspect is the most prominent aspect here. Fairly light and on the high side of carbonation for a stout, this one is quite drinkable. Something that I enjoy from time to time and one that is in fairly consistent rotation in my fridge. Good beer.

Can at Gene’s Haufbrau in Charleston. Pours a deep brown/black. Nose is bready, slightly roasty. Minimal hop notes. Pretty muted overall. Disappointing.

12oz can from Specs in College Station. Poured dark brown with a very carbinated head that goes away quickly. Very dry. Mouthfeel is thin and lots of carbination. but it does have a nice taste to it. Bitterness as it goes down. This comes in pack of cans, unlike the pale ale which is 6 and also 16oz’s.
