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.

can, pours dark brown nearing black with a tall frothy tan head. Aroma is mildly roasty, but has lots of nutty notes and toffee. Flavor is super rich, and creamy. Brown sugar, some chocolate malt, toffee and lots of it. Ends with light alcohol notes and a lingering coffee flavor. This really is damn good, it’s like a hybrid strong brown ale and RIS.

Can… RBWG ‘10This beer rocks!… Pours a clear, very dark copper with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Great retention. Chocolaty, nutty, mocha aroma. Medium to full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Nice, sweet mocha flavor and finish. Thanks a million to thickfreakness for shipping the cans of this simple, but world class stout to the F-L-A!

Can courtesy of Howardf from TBS...thanks! Pours a deep, opaque brown with a tan head. Smell is nutty with caramel. Taste is different though...slightly nutty up front with a delayed coffee finish. Dare I say there’s a bit of a bitterness in the lingering finish. Very good.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2010
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 (2631) - 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.

douglas88 (7792) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2010
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.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2010
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 doesn’t suck.

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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. Flavor’s similar but sweetness dominates. Body is decent and mouthfilling and good carbonation, but I would have expected a little more substance than what’s here. Finish is like flavor but with a short blast of booze and a longer "stout" end.
