Got in a recent trade, but I didn’t know what to expect. I had read that this was a great beer and that a lot of people said it was good, but I just sort of went for it on a whim and I’m really glad that I did. After trying Ten Fidy I’m not scared of Stouts, or any beer for that matter, out of a can. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malts. The color is jet black with a thin brown, bubbly head to it. The taste is super smooth with chocolate, malt, and roasted nut flavors, and just a little bit of coffee bitterness on the back end. All the flavors seem to work in harmony really well. The ABV is masked amongst the flavors very well. kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2010
12 oz can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a large frothy light brown head that had decent retention. The nose is roasty and a bit metallic smelling with a slight twang. Some nice dark chocolate notes as well. The flavor is on the sweeter side with more chocolate malt than roasted, some burnt notes on the finish. Finishes with a touch of nuttiness and a slight sweet cream note. Medium bodied, a little clingy, with fairly active carbonation. This was actually pretty decent, and it got better the more I drank. It could use a bit more body though. Ibrew2or3 (8828) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Courtesy of markwise. The can pours darkness with ruby red edges and off white head. The aroma is inviting to say the least with a stunning balance of rich chocolate, rich coffee and rich (yep) dark roasted malts all backed up by a thin layer of caramel candy. Wow! The taste is rich and rewarding giving up in ample quantities an even mix of chocolate, dark roasted malts and coffee along with lesser amounts of sweet malts and molasses adding just the right amount of sweetness. This recipe is a stunna’ Well Done! Braudog (6837) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Can. Nice stoutly pour -- thick and black with a giant foam top, even if it does give up pretty quickly. The aroma is very nice, rich with a down-home brewery roasty maltiness. The beer drinks with a nice well-bodied mouthfeel, rich with licorice, raisin, plum and dark cherries. De ... lish ... is. (#3993, 9/26/2010) sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2010
merci à markwise pour cette cannette.
brune foncée, col est couleur moka.
arôme, pleine de malte, superbe note de café et chocolat.
gout, ahhhh ce goût est génial, rempli de café de ce goût de malt grillé, palais est sec et croustillant. Balance est parfaite avec une touche de noisette, chocolat est aussi présent et moyen au palais. Je perçois aussi qcq notes de malt fumé.

Pours a very nice, thick black with a creamy white head. Aroma is dominated by chocolate and coffee, but also small hints of wood. Flavor is mostly chocolate, coffee, and caramel, some nuts as well. Nice sweet finishing stout! ronaldtheriot (1995) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Buried Hatchet has a medium, creamy, beige head (which quickly dissipates) and a very dark, almost black, very deep, and very clear (under light) red appearance. The aroma is of very strong coffee and dark-roasted barley malt. Taste is of dark chocolate, strong coffee, and dark malt. Also, a fairly strong alcohol flavor permeates the sip. Mouth-feel is thick and heavy. Buried Hatchet finishes dense and alcoholic. I felt the alcohol effects in my head even thirty minutes after finishing a 12 oz. sample. Overall, even though this stout has unique characteristics, I’d say that it’s only okay, not super. But, it is worth a try.

Thanks to crajun for this one in trade. Pours dark brown with an off-whiten head. Nose is coffee, cocoa, earth, dark chocolate, and slight hops. Flavor is similar with cocoa and chocolate all over. Very enjoyable with lingering cocoa and earthy dark chocolate in the finish. Light to medium bodied for a stout. For a canned stout from Texas, this one is one of the most underestimated, yet most enjoyable stouts. MaBeer1972 (2166) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Thanks to Crajun for this can. This is a pretty good version of a style I am not all that crazy about. Lots of sweet roasty malts. Alcohol is hidden well. Why isn’t this an imperial? What the heck do I know anyway. I’m am smoking some meats in my backyard on this Labor Day - so this goes well with that. jb43 (1695) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2010
(Bottle from BMan1113VR, sampled 4/18/10). Dark brown color. Large tan head, which is mostly diminishing. Moderate roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate aroma. Flavor of the same, with light sweetness. Long duration. Moderate bitter finish. Slick creamy texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.
