4.01/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle

A: Dark brown, similar to regular Buried Hatchet. Wouldn't say it's "black" but very dark and retains about a half inch of mocha head.

S: Bourbon, oak, sweet malts, coffee, roast and toffee

T: Follows the nose nicely. More of the roast coffee with big but not huge bourbon notes. Nice malty sweetness sticks with you through every drink. Nice

M: Creamy milk like texture similar to the regular Buried Hatchet but overall I'd say it's on the thin side for a stout

O: Different from any ba stout I've had before. I love the regular Buried Hatchet and I'm not sure if this is really an improvement on the original but I like it a lot. A little odd at first but after a few sips I was into it. Glad they bottled this...

4.29/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Extremely dark, almost completely opaque with some slight hints of ruby when the light hits just right. Thick tan head with lots of lacing.

Lots of toffee and bourbon in the nose, very pleasant. A hint of burnt toast, but not in a bad way.

Definitely toffee up front, some vanilla, giving way nicely to the bourbon. A really well put together flavor combination. The mouth is a little thin for style, but at the suggestion of another reviewer, I swirled the beer in the glass between sips and this really seemed to make a difference.

A great beer that I thoroughly enjoyed.
