Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

Buried Hatchet Stout pours to a very dark brown color with tinges of redness. Its nose is bold and inviting, with a scent that combines coffee, chocolate, a little toffee, and a little bit of vanilla. Its foam level is nice at first, but it does fade away in a relatively short time. Still, it manages to maintain a cap of tan colored bubbles that holds its own to the bottom of the glass and there is a small amount of lacing.

Buried Hatchet Stout is a complex brew and it offers many great flavors to keep the stout lover satisfied. The flavors of chocolate and coffee are the most obvious, but there are also tastes of toffee, caramel, toasted malt, nuts, light herbal hops, and fruit. The beer has a definite creaminess to its body and there is some bitterness, but it is quickly reigned- in by the taste of the sweet malt and smoothness.

Buried Hatchet Stout has many qualities that make it a memorable brew. Its complexity is obvious and its flavor just keeps on giving. The flavor profile of mocha, caramel and toffee, fruit, etc., will satisfy most any fan of the style. Its aroma is wonderful and its body, while not as full as the nose may lead you to believe, is still full enough that most will not mind.

Buried Hatchet Stout is a very interesting beer with a smoothness not often found in beers with this alcohol level. Try some for yourself, if you can get your hands on a can, and discover the malty smoothness of this Texas- brewed malt beverage treat.
