COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cocoa nib and mesquite aroma. Flavor is just off dry with a nice balanced roasty-ness. Not super complex, but quite tasty.

Southern Star Buried Hatchet Stout Style: Foreign/Export stout, 8.5% ABV Appearance: very dark brown, ruby highlights. Fluffy light brown head that dissipates rapidly. Smell: as is common with F/E stouts, mainly a delicate hint of coffee. Some slight sweetness. Taste: delicate and light on the tongue, with a coffee flavour - think more a breakfast blend from a boutique roaster. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel: well carbonated, strangely thin but not in a bad way. The mouthfeel makes this beer *dangerously* drinkable - without any alcohol burn you could almost think this was a regular stout and drink it in that manner! As it warms: molasses flavour emerges from the ruby depths of the glass. This is a dangerously drinkable beer, all the more so because it’s a quaffable big stout. The added bonus? This is an amazing beer IN A CAN. At about $12 for a 4 pack, you have a fantastic, world-class beer that you can take to cookouts, the beach, concerts, and state parks. What more can you ask for :)

Can via bill. Opaque brown, slightly muddy appearance, full sheet of tan/off-white. Nose was sour lactic twang and roasted malts...some twigs too. Flavors were extremely roasty, lactic and sour mash-like, some twigs and bushes and tobacco, little malted milk ball finish...well hidden alcohol...but why am i getting pure lactic stout from this? The alcohol is a creeper, but you feel the warmth in the end.

Can. Thanks to secret summer santa for this! Pours dark, almost black, with ruby highlights and a tan head that fades to a ring. Aroma is very roasty, some burnt sourness, some smoke, coal, coffee, almost nutty. Some dark fruity sweetness and oatmeal roundness there too. This is reflected in the flavour profile, along with chocolate and dark malt sweetness. Nice, full mouthfeel with surprisingly delicate carbonation. Overall very enjoyable. I tend to like my stouts a bit less roasty and sweeter or more coffee-like though.

Can sample. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is straight coffee beans with notes of wood and nuts. Flavor is...coffee. Lighter body...a little warmth to it. Pretty good.

4 oz sample. Pours a dark brown with little head. The aroma is awesome. Roasted coffee malts. Roasted nuts. Smells really fresh. Coffee beans with roasted malts. Pretty good. Palate is decent with a medium mouthfeel and a decent finish. Overall a pretty good beer.

Dark brown pour from can. Nose is cocoa powder. Taste is light coffee and semi-sweet chocolate. Very smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Warm finish. Not a typical "big" stout, but a very, very good one.

Dark - dark. Huge head of little bubbles. Aroma is really strong of chocolate and roastiness. Taste is of chocolate and dark, almost burnt malt. The finish lasts forever and has the taste of coffee. A very good stout that the brewery should be proud of.

12oz can thanks to chswimmer on BA. Pours clear dark brown in color with a small off-white head leaving foamy swirls. Really intense mocha aroma. Maybe some molasses and anise. Flavor is also intense and tasty. Rich milk chocolate, espresso, roast, and caramel. Just a little alcohol. Medium-bodied with some serious coffee bitterness on the palate. Very drinkable, and overall a very legitimate canned stout, from Texas of all places. I was surprised.
