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.

Canned. Pours a dark brune body with an off white head. Dark and malty with a light coffee roast. Lactose and licorice notes. A mild creamy body with soft carbonation and a mild warming. A mild roast y finish imparts a nice bitterness. Decent IS.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Can. Pours a medium to dark brown with quite a bit of reddish highlighting and a nice fluffy tan head. Aromas are pretty heavy with earthy and roasty malt. Coffee, chocolate and charcoal are present in the nose, and body is a slightly sugary spin on that storyline. It is a little stickier than expected and borders on cloying in my opinion, but there is a decent mix of caramelized sugar and chocolate that is pleasant enough. My biggest wish is that there was a little more of a bitter coffee edge to it to push back some of the sticky sweetness that dominates in the mid to late palate development.

Can. Pours a brown/red color with a medium beige head. The aroma is coffee, light roasted malts. The flavor is sweet coffee, chocolates, smooth lightly roasted malts. Easygoing and nice.

Pours dark brown with a tan head, a little thin looking for an imperial stout. Wow, fantastic roasted coffee and chocolate aromas. Flavor starts out a little bitter from the chocolate flavor and hops, finishes nice and smooth and a little creamy. Apparently it is possible to make beer in a can that doesnít suck.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Can thanks to kp: Pours a transparent dark amber mahogany with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of rich sweet toasty dark caramel malts with some dark fruity complexity, a touch of raisins and mild roasty coffee. Starts with good fullness and a chewy sweet dark caramel maltiness with nice light brown sugar complexity before a smooth bittersweet mocha finish. A well-balanced and incredibly drinkable imperial stout that makes for a nice dessert.

Interesting beer. Poured with huge, foamy, frothy, root beer tan head and a little lace. Head mostly faded quick. Color is an almost opaque blackish brown. Aroma is very nice with malt, cocoa, and roastiness. Flavorís similar but sweetness dominates. Body is decent and mouthfilling and good carbonation, but I would have expected a little more substance than whatís here. Finish is like flavor but with a short blast of booze and a longer "stout" end.

Bottle thanks to Datjai007
Dark brown, white ring head. Nose of significant nut, burnt coffee, light brownie/cake with significant chocolate. Flavor is similar but more lactose and a stronger malt presence, more bitter than nose yet still showing hints of chocolate. Thin, short licorice finish. Pretty decent stuff, though not unique.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2010 03/10 - had a couple more; dropped my rating slightly (had at same time as alaskan stout and liked that slightly better). the ending is a dry hopped finish which seems different for this style - but i like it!! purchased 4 pk locally; pours dark cola with BIG dark tan long lasting head. smell of roasted and coffee. Just recovering from cold, so taste buds may be off but DAMN that was good. Flavor was coffee and roasted; carbonation seemed high to me but maybe thatís why I got no alcohol taste from such a high ABV beer. The end was very intriguing to me - I canít place it - definitely get the roasted coffe but there was something else ther (o thers say nuts). will hae others and check back but DAMN glad to see a texas brewer put out this quality - I bleieve it is the best Texas beer to date.

$10 / 4 pack- Really odd opening that first can with the understanding this isnít domestic swill. And believe me, this is not Coors Light in your hand! Really nice bittersweet flavors with a brown malt backing that really does work. I can see how some are not digging the dryness factor, but I say bring it on! I love coffee and dry stouts, so this is right on for me. Hot damn, craft beer out of a can! Might be superior to glass, which always lets in some light. 1st Southern Star beer for me.
