dark but not black. a little bourbon comes through in the nose. no lacing. finishes with a coffee flavor thats a bit smokey. light body. a little more carbonation than i’d like. overall, solid bourbon barrel stout. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. The look is brown to black in color, beige head, dark somewhat. The smell is chalky, malt, roast, chocolate, cocoa, and interesting. The taste is sweet, milk chocolate, malt, wood, charred. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
16.9 oz bottle. Black with a decent beige head. Aroma is of smoke, oak barrel, toast, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste is of cocoa, smoke, charred oak, chocolate, and coffee. Seems thin. RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2014
pours black with a lasting off-white head. rich buttery aroma with notes of cherry, bourbon and chocolate. taste has notes of bourbon, popcorn, and chocolate. body is a bit thin. finish is bitter chocolate. MarkAg86 (10) - Conroe, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Magnificent beer! This is Southern Star's Buried Hatchet Stout aged in bourbon barrels and results in a sweet stout beer with hints of bourbon and chocolate. Delicious!

Bottle. Pours clear ruby black, small tan head, creamy, dissipates fairly quickly, nice lacing. Aroma is pretty vanilla forward, candy, milk chocolate, caramel. Flavor is sweet, actually less so than I expected from the aroma, vanilla, chocolate, english toffee, Worthers, bourbon. Light bitterness as well. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. A desert beer with a lingering bourbon finish. GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Opened with little carbonation. Pours with very thin head and medium/dark brown pour with light brown highlights at the edge. Gingerbread and prunes in the nose. Strong prune taste and light mouthfeel with acidic finish. djd07 (14519) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2014
On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a dark brown with small paper thin beige head that diminishes to nothing. Aroma is chocolate, roast, wood. Thin mouthfeel with nice roast, dark chocolate, light bourbon, very good. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Poured a deep black with little head. Faint nose of liquor. Mild in the mouth and alcohol well hidden. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Nice, subdued BA stout. Very mellow, laid-back flavor profile. I like the fact that the bourbon infuses the stout thoroughly, but is also laid back, not overtaking the beer. Not boozy at all.
