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.

All I have to say is yum. Nice and silky and even good for a hot Texas day. Mixes great with Leprechaun Golden Cider - Golden Hatchet.

The best stout I have ever had... Not too heavy with lots of coffee and chocolate notes without the benifit of either one.

Weíve been buying half barrels of this fabulous stout (at the same price I might add) every 3 months for 4 years now! No ... weíre not a commercial enterprise, itís just us 2, at home with our friends, loving the smooth bready satisfying completeness of this outstanding stout. Itís a terrific end of the workday treat and a weekend "get relaxed" brew! Weíve tried so many stouts over the years I canít count them and BH outshines them all!! Our opinion of course. If you like stouts, give this a try, youíll undoubtedly fall in love like we did! Thank you SS!!!!

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2011 Pours black with reddish hues and a multi-finger tan head. Smells strong and roasty, full of rich, dark malts and some coffee, as it warms. Tastes of sweet roasted malts which donít change much as it warms but there is more of a coffee flavor present. Full-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and almost no mouth-carbonation, Southern Star Buried Hatchet Stout has a warming, bittersweet finish. This is thoroughly an exceptional stout.

Awesome stout that you can turn up and chug. To be an 8.3 abhor and this smooth is unreal.

Oh man, what a craft! This stout is hands down in the top three stouts out there. Not for the rookie beer drinker, nor for those that prefer the lighter side of beer. However, even the ale drinker or the novice can appreciate this one. Rather pricey ($11.99 a 4 pack most places), but well worth it!

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Buried Hatchet may be one of the coolest beer names Iíve encountered. Iím 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 isnít as dark as youíd 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. Iím 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 thereís 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.

Purchased at KEGS & BARRELS on 15th St in Plano TX. Chocolate nose, easy drinking, very tasty. Great deep brown color. A bit foamy so I lost a little of the pour. If I lived in TX, this would be one of my go-to beers. Solid showing.
