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.

We’ve been buying half barrels of this fabulous stout (at the same price I might add) every 3 months for 4 years now! No ... we’re not a commercial enterprise, it’s just us 2, at home with our friends, loving the smooth bready satisfying completeness of this outstanding stout. It’s a terrific end of the workday treat and a weekend "get relaxed" brew! We’ve tried so many stouts over the years I can’t count them and BH outshines them all!! Our opinion of course. If you like stouts, give this a try, you’ll 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 don’t 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!

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.

Southern Star Buried Hatchet Stout Style: Foreign/Export stout, 8.5% ABV Appearance: very dark brown, ruby highlights. Fluffy light brown head that dissipates rapidly. Smell: as is common with F/E stouts, mainly a delicate hint of coffee. Some slight sweetness. Taste: delicate and light on the tongue, with a coffee flavour - think more a breakfast blend from a boutique roaster. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel: well carbonated, strangely thin but not in a bad way. The mouthfeel makes this beer *dangerously* drinkable - without any alcohol burn you could almost think this was a regular stout and drink it in that manner! As it warms: molasses flavour emerges from the ruby depths of the glass. This is a dangerously drinkable beer, all the more so because it’s a quaffable big stout. The added bonus? This is an amazing beer IN A CAN. At about $12 for a 4 pack, you have a fantastic, world-class beer that you can take to cookouts, the beach, concerts, and state parks. What more can you ask for :)
