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.

Pours a deep umber with a bit of translucency and a two finger eggshell foam. The nose is roasty with lots of chocolate malt and a bit of creamy coffee. The palate follows the nose with a nice roast profile backed by chocolate and earthy coffee notes. Silky creamy mouthfeel. Pretty decent stout with a bitter finish.

Great stout! Pours dark brown with light off-white head and minimal lacing. Aromas of chocolate and butterscotch. Taste is bold espresso, roasted coffee beans, and sweet malts. A little bitter up front with a sweet finish.

12 oz can poured dark brown black with finger tan head, dissipated to thin froth on top with mild lacing. Good carbonation. Nose is coffee and roast malt, taste is same. Slight bitter finish.

I had this as a nitro. The pour was ultra foamy. More head than actual brew. It had a black coffee hue. And taste to match. Notes of espresso but more faint. It does have a smooth wash down but it seems one dimensional. Like its lacking body. I think it has more in common with an imperial porter than a stout. It lacks boldness and balance. It would benefit with either more bitterness or bumping the ABV a notch.

Pours jet black with one finger of khaki head into a snifter. The aroma is very faint coffee. The mouth feel is a little bit thin for my liking on a stout. I really like the flavor on this one though. It has some really strong classic stout characteristics. There is a touch of dark chocolate and some definite coffee notes to this one. I am very impressed as my home town is about 20 miles south of this brewery.

Bittersweet creaminess. Black beer with amber edges. Thin off white head. Drinking from can gives some astrigent-ness that disappears in a glass but so does some character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Yard House Houston. A dense, finger thick beige head sits on top of a dark brown to black body. Nice curtains. The aroma is pretty roasted, with nuts, spent coffee grit and hints of bonfire. Hot tarmac too actually. It’s pretty dry on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lots of roasted malts in the flavor. Coffee, bonfire notes and some dark chocolate too. Pleasant bitterness towards the finish. A beer that I could repeat, no doubt, even though I find it a bit one dimensional. 131111

Pours a very dark brown with a 2 finger tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, and very light coffee. The taste slightly sweet and has a roasted nuttiness and malts with some dark chocolate bitter on the finish. The mouth feel is not as thick as I expected but it was still a smooth drinking brew. This is probably my favorite local year-round stout.
