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.

12 oz can I think shared by Hopscotch at RBWG 2010. Pours a nice amber -brown actually- not as dark as expected but decent head. Aroma is toasty nutty chocolate, earth with a light roast, with mineral and salt. Flavor is toasted brown malts, biscuit, and fresh baked cookies- slightly burnt, light burnt toast, caramel sweetness light chocolate earth and roast.- very clean and smooth finish. Not what I was expecting but easy drinking and pretty nice.

Deep garnet red, almost black, small head of fine bubbles. Nice chocolate/roast nose. Interesting recipe. It doesnít taste all crazy strange or anything but definitely tastes a bit different than a stout made w/ just dark malts and roasted barley w/ a grist of mostly pale malt. There is a different kind of chocolate richness to it. It is maybe simpler in flavor but the kind of simple that belies great depth. There are possibly some medicinal notes around the edges but you only notice those because itís good enough that you care to delve in deeply. Thick creamy mouthfeel w/ gentle carbonation. Good stout and high enough gravity it is probably deserving of being classed as an imperial around here.

Can, via a trade with Blutt59. The aroma is closer to a brown lae, nutty, chocolatey. The appearance is a dark brown, tinge of red, slight translucence. Thin in appearance for a stout. The flavor is nuts, chocolate, roasted coffee. The finish is a medium hop bittering, like resin. Medium to medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Fairly good, enjoyable stout, although it does remind me more of a Brown Ale. Thanks, Bob. I would never have gotten anything from this brewer up here.

Exiled (26) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2010
UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 (12oz can) Pours very dark brown almost black. Big creamy light brown head with good lacing. Smells sweet with lots of dark roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and some dark fruit. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, caramel, oats, and chocolate. Med-full creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is a great beer.

"Four pack of cans makes for a happy man. Amber brown pour with a depleting tan head that ultimately settles to 1/4" in thickness and leaves some spotty lacing in itís path. Big nutty, chocolaty, roasted malt aroma with a demanding dose of coffee. On the thin and fizzy side for a beer like this, balanced with a mildly creamy finish thatís a touch dry. Flavor resembles the aroma only the mouth feel detracts from the enjoyment ever so slightly. Nice offering."

12 oz can. Dark brown, but allows some light, with a foamy beige head. Nose is dark roast, cola and chocolate. Medium light with a tingle. Taste is coffee, cocoa and prune. Starts sweet; then bitter, grassy and earthy. Finishing with black licorice. Good stout with a cool looking can.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2010
Deep cola brown with a fading tan head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of vanilla, chocolate, walnuts, heavy roast and toast with a hint of coffee and herbal peppery hops. The taste is malty and nutty with minimal depth outside the splash of bitterness and spice toward the finish. The mouth feel is soft and has a bit of a metallic twang. HO HUM, this is nothing more than a bigger and darker brown ale or better yet pehaps a robust porter that is completely missing the black malts influence. Even as a porter it is quite average as best. It sure is NOT an Imperial Stout in any shape or form. At $4 a can, is sure is NOT worth the money, we have been bamboozled. "A stout for stout lovers" my arse.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a medium brown head. Aroma has notes of smoke, tobacco and coffee. Flavor begins a bit sweeter, but the tobacco, coffee and smoke quickly takeover.

beerbill (3565) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 13, 2010
12 oz. can courtesy of a trade with BMan1113VR. Pours black and allows no light to pass with a moderate tan head that fades to a film within the first two sips and leaves light lace. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt along with a few notes of chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt along with ample milk chocolate and a touch of tobacco. Fairly creamy mouthfeel. Not as full-bodied as I might expect in an imperial stout, but that would be my only issue, and it is a minor one. Overall, a very solid beer.

AndyReynolds (1048) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - APR 9, 2010
Aroma roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, and burnt malts, also notes of vanilla and coffee. Mouth feel is creamy. Taste really brings out the coffee and it finishes nice and dry. Pretty damn good.
