Bourbon Barrel version of Southern Stars Buried Hatchet Stout. The base beer is a solid stout but the year & a half spent in a barrel takes this brew over the top! It pours completely black with a distinct toffee & bourbon aroma. It tastes of malt & vanilla that gives way to smooth bourbon. Very drinkable & not overpowering like some bourbon barrel brews. The original beer had hints of chocolate that I cant pickup anymore though. Despite that, Black Crack is a big improvement over Buried Hatchet. If you ever have a chance, get your hands on one.
