Buried Hatchet
(Southern Star Brewing Company)

Buried Hatchet is the "newest" of the three canned offerings from Southern Star. It will celebrate two years of being canned next month. Being one of only a couple (literally) strong stouts available in cans in the US thus far, this is definitely a brew to seek out!

From the Southern Star site:

"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."

Here we go...


Pour - dark, dark, dark with some rubyish highlights sparking in the light. The head is tan and off-white and fades quickly to about a solid quarter-inch in depth. Looks pretty rich and tasty!

 

Aroma - chocolate, Tootsie Rolls, dark-roast coffee beans, vanilla, toast, coffee ice cream

 

Taste - cocoa, vanilla, malted milk balls, dark roast coffee, toffee. Lots of rich, roasty flavors are packed into this dark beauty. The coffee, cocoa and vanilla really stand out and your tongue is left a little dry and a little overwhelmed but not in a bad way. Great stuff. I don't have anything bad to say about this malty-meal in a can.

 

Overall - Buried Hatchet is rich, malty and delicious. Tons of malt flavor and super smooth on the palate. Not as potent as Ten Fidy but certainly as flavorful and delicious.

 

Would I buy more of it? - absolutely. There aren't many strong stouts in cans these days. Between Buried Hatchet and Oskar Blues' Ten Fidy its pretty much a canned-strong stout desert!

 

Note - The label on the can reads, “You hold in your hand a stout for stout lovers. Buried Hatchet is brewed with a large quantity of brown malt reminiscent of a traditional pre-Industrial Revolution malt profile. This stout is full of robust, roasted flavors which intermingle with a bittersweet creaminess that concludes to a perfect, warming finish.”
