Pour Me: Buried Hatchet Stout
Buried Hatchet Stout is a brew by Southern Star Brewing Company in Conroe, TX. I have seen the can before, but prior to picking it up, I was in can denial, so I just ignored it. A stout in a can?! Only Guinness can do that. Well, after tasting the remarkable Ten Fidy, I decided it was high time to give Buried Hatchet a try.
Buried Hatchet is a double/imperial stout, so I was expecting it to pack a nice wallop. It poured midnight black, with a nice, frothy head. There is a bit of malt and alcohol on the nose, but it is not potent. The flavor is very peaty. Like, working in the garden-style earthy. There is a tinge of wateriness to it, but that lends to the drinkiblity. The malts are very smooth, but there is a nice little bite at the end. While not as potent as many other imperial stouts out there, Buried Hatchet is quite good, and a good example of a stout.
