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.

12 oz can from Binnys singles rack (Orland Park, IL). Pours a murly dark brown, lighter ruby light brown bottom that letís copious light through, a big brown head that cakes, laces well. Aromas are sweeter cocoa, roasted malts, a touch of tobacco, vanilla, coffee. Nice, sweeter edged. Initial is a good roasty base, sweet and bitter chocolate, coffee with cream, almost like a solid porter with a touch of tobacco, roasty and sweet, a nice balance with light bitterness on the backend, a bit warming. This is nice, not too roasty with a sweeter yet still bitter cocoa edge, coffee, and a touch of vanilla, smooth on the palate, faint hopping as it finishes, this is pretty good, although feels like a porter

12 oz. can from maltomeal. Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights and a large beige head. The aroma is nicely roasted malts, a blend of milk and dark chocolate and molasses. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, mild coffee, with a smooth but dry presentation. The finish has some mild bitterness that balances some of the sweetness of the beer. Medium bodied and very easy to drink. Plus one for the can. I am happy that this is now sold locally and just in time for the early golf season. Rating # 59 for this beer.

A dark reddish-brown beer with a great looking head. The aroma was roasted grains, coffee, & really is very grainy. The taste was very grainy, coffee, with a slight bitter ending.

Thanks to Xpimptastixx for the can. Black pour with a thick creamy head. Deep roasted grain and chocolate malt aroma. Dry roasted grain taste with hints of chocolate. Smooth and dry with a nice creaminess, good brew.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2010 One of my new favorite non-imperial stouts. Wonderful aroma and flavor of nutty roasted malts. Just a raw, simple, full flavored, easy to drink, stout. I bought a can to give it a shot and went back the next day to pick up a 4-pack.

Can. Pours a thick black color with a foamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, faint hint of smoke, and some chocolate. Flavor is extremely roasty, a bit bitter, vanilla, hint of coffee. Had a nice creamy mouthfeel.

Pours barely black with a moussey, light khaki colored head. Aroma of dark chocolate, Reeses peanut butter cups, coffee, cocoa, and hazelnut. Just enough roast, seems milky too. Flavor starts creamy and sweet with coffee followed by bigger flavors of dark chocolate, cream, vanilla, hazelnut, peanut butter and coffee. Finishes with the roast coming out backed by some earth and more nut flavor. Medium to full bodied, high-ish carbonation, no heat, and a nice creamy body. While this doesnít seem to belong to the "imperial stout" category (the brewery says "strong American stout"), itís a damn addictive beer and is like comfort food you can drink. Time to get some more.

12 ounce can. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and malty, it smells like roasted and burnt/charred malt, coffee, and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is the same as the aroma, and it has a good roasty and bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís rich and a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is pretty good, itís very easy to drink and the 8.25% ABV isnít very noticable at all. Overall I think this is a good brew. This is easily one of the best canned beers Iíve tried. $9.99 a 4-pack is a good deal for this brew. Iíll definitely buy this again in the future for sure!

From can. lol. Pours opaque brown with a tall tan frothy head. Aroma is of a serious stout with coffee, roast, and some smoky malt. These flavors hide a warming and not entirely hidden alcohol burn too. A bit thin for an imperial, but very drinkable with a fair amount of hops too. A very good stout made just an hour North of Houston. Saint Arnold better start brewing some better quality beers, because this is some serious competition from just up the road. And this one is a big hitter and they just got started. I see a tour in my near future. I would love to see you guys do an IPA along the lines of Pine Belt, but with Stoneís brewing philosophy.
