3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can. Pours a medium,well retained, light beige head with a bit of lacing, over a clear, ruby brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is roasted malts, with heavy coffee, lighter chocolate, hints of dried fruits, mild herbal hop tones....taste is slightly sweet, with dried fruit notes, including raisin, plum, chocolate, heavy coffee, leading to a lightly hopped, bitter coffee finish, balance to the roasted malts.....mouth feel, medium body, slight alcohol warmth, slightly sticky, carbonation low with a soft finish. This is very roasted malt dominated, with the heavily roasted malts in ascendancy. The bitterness is primarily from the roasted malts, with the hops adding a bit of complexity. There is light sweetness which helps balance back the malts. That written, I would prefer a more complex malt back bone. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 01-01-2012. This canned beer has a medium sized sem-fizzy tan head with a long retention, semi-opaque reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malty, milk chocolate, sweet, and coffee. The flavor mimics the aroma along with a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. This beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, good texture, very malty tasting, worth trying, and a beer I would definitely drink again. More please!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Heavy toasted and dark chocolate for the malt, light herbs for the hops, faint earth for the yeast, with toffee and cinnamon in the background. Head is small, tan, with some slippery lacing and good legs, and diminishes to a small ring. Color is very dark brown Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, watery with a carbonation between soft and lively. Nice rich aroma, a little weak in flavor. Still a pretty good Stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Thanks Jay "GodOfThunder")
A- Nutella, toast, chocolate, nutty, coffee.
A- Black color, black liquid, minimal head.
T- Nutella, chocolate, roasty, coffee, semi bitter cocoa, mocha, cola, slightly malty.
P- Full body, average texture, soft carbonation, dry bittersweet finish.
O- An excellent stout that could stand up again a lot of others similar to it. Very robust, rich, and complex. With the strong toast and chocolate and nut aromas, alongside the tastes, this reminded me of Nutella on toast for breakfast. Just a good beer all around.

Can thanks to GodofThunder: Poured a dark brown with whispery white head. Aroma was roasted malts. Taste was milky, very silky on the palate with chocolate and just enough roasted malts to provide a backbone.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Buried Hatchet may be one of the coolest beer names I’ve encountered. I’m also a fan of the can artwork. Happily, the stuff behind the name and the can is equally enjoyable. For a stout with a fairly high ABV, the body isn’t as dark as you’d expect. When held up to the light, this beer is more of a dark brown color. The smooth, medium body is also more reminiscent of a porter. I’m getting ahead of myself, though. Buried Hatchet is wonderfully heady and produces an aroma of cocoa, coffee, and roasted malt. All of those elements show up in the taste, but there’s also a moderately hoppy finish that keeps the malty flavors from settling on the palate too much. While this beer is a little strange in terms of its style, the taste and feel are amazing. I appreciate a stout that can be delicious without the need for unusual ingredients or extended aging. Buried Hatchet is that kind of beer.

Une canette en mangeant de la bouffe cubaine. Un stout très brun et une maudite belle tête mousseuse. Des arômes riches de caramel foncé, de noix, de malts rôtis et de grains frais de café. Des saveurs torréfiées de café dans un mélange habile de chocolat, de caramel et de notes rôties. C’est délicieux! En bouche, un liquide qui montre un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré et une texture crémeuse. Une finale amèrement chocolatée, peu intense mais ô combien savoureuse. Excellente cohésion des flaveurs. La fusion entre un brown ale et un stout. J’aime son style.
