4.49/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500 mL bottle pours black but doesnt seem as viscous as the regular Buried Hatchet. Dense tan head is decently sized and displays average retention, very little lace.

Nose is a delectable combination of bourbon, coconut, chocolate and vanilla. Superb.

Wow, the barrel treatment really did some wonderful things to this one...adds a woody, vanilla flavor that is the perfect compliment to the liquid chocolate that is Buried Hatchet. The hops are more tame which works to the beer's advantage too. Mouthfeel is nice...and the ABV is low enough to make this damn near chuggable...actually it might benefit from a 1-1.5% increase in alcohol to add to the complexity. Love it...I sure hope they do this again.
