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.

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!

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.

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 :)

My gosh! This brew is so good I want to cut the can open and lick it clean! It poured up a near pitch black-colored body with ruby hues; a massive foamy head with moderate retention & awesome lacing. The head reduces down to a thin foamy topping and hangs around for a good long while. Aromas of dark chocolates and dark fruits, coffee, and hot fudge. Medium-bodied and silky smooth with a crisp, clean finish that has just a subtle ‘bite’. Very easy to drink so watch that ABV count!

can. you immediately recognize this as something special by the strong, sweet, creamed coffee scent that emits from the pop of the can. it pours a clear deep brown with a medium, creamy, tan head. such a pleasant thing to smell. the flavor gets even better. nutty, caramel candies, vanilla, butterscotch, creamed and sugared coffee flavors but still manages to be refreshing and no sign of 8.25%. drinks and tastes like something i’ve never had before. top notch and highly impressed. such an awesome brew!
