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.

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.

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.

Can from payless off 96th in Fishers. Pours mild black with transparent brown edge and quickly fading light tan head. Nose is roasted coffee/chocolate malt, melding nicely. Taste is bitter roasted malt, thinly carbonated, and finishing very smooth. Notes of chocolate and coffee come through in a very good balance. A little rough, but overall very good. Nothing Iíd call sweet, on the dryer side.

Draft sample @ Brewvival on 2/27/10. far from an Imperial Stout... this is more of a brown ale... pours like one... tastes like one.... etc. lots of nut aromas and nut presence over the body.... really lacking the depth and roast of a big imperial. very disappointed.

A: The pour is an opaque dark brown color with a full, creamy tan colored head. S: Great notes of roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, and coffee in the nose. T: The characteristics of the nose translate very well to the palate. A lot of great dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and a nice bitterness on the finish. Maybe a tinge of alcohol as well. M: The body is medium with a creamy carbonation. D: I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer. A great combination of roast and bitterness that I found to be very enjoyable.

Pours ruby colored with a fully receding tan head. Notes of dark toffee, rye bread, rum, spice, molasses and toasted malts. Full bodied with lively carbonation.
