Acquired a 4pk of Buried Hatchet from mattisloco about six months ago. Thanks Matt! No date on can.
Poured into a Cigar City snifter.
Appearance: Poured out light-colored and sort of thin, like a brown ale. A rich, creamy, tan head formed on top, and shows great retention (looks fantastic after a brief swirl). Body looks a lot darker in the snifter, but still shows a good deal of translucence around the edges. Soapy lace. Other than the body color/depth, this looks damn nice.
Smell: Coffee, brown malt, caramel, and nuts come through right away. Digging a bit deeper, I find vanilla, cocoa powder, cream soda, raisins, dark chocolate, and... rubber? Very few roasty notes in this aroma, and it's actually a nice change-up. Interesting, at least.
Taste: Brown malt, mild roast coffee, chocolate creme, light char, and peppery hops. Tastes a lot like an imperial brown ale with stout accents. Certainly strange for the style, but not bad.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied for the style, The velvety carbonation and light body (relative to the style) create a feel that's both creamy and effervescent. Malt-forward, but the hops come through nicely in the finish; clean things up. Feels a lot like a Belgian dark ale.
Serving type: can
