The Brü Revü – Southern Star Buried Hatchet Stout

The Buried Hatchet Stout is a solid drinking stout from Southern Star Brewing in Conroe, TX just outside of Houston. It is always nice to have a quality stout or porter from a Texas brewery even though our temperatures call for lighter brews most of the year.  The Buried Hatchet poured an opaque dark brown with a solid tan head that left great lacing.  The aroma held roasted malt and dark chocolate notes that foretold the the flavors to come.  The first taste was full of a toasted nuttiness with a deep dark chocolate bitterness and dark roasted malt on the finish.  The bitterness eroded to a sweetness as it warmed and left a pleasing nuttiness on the palate.  The mouthfeel and body was thinner than expected but it was still a smooth drinking brew.  The Buried Hatchet was a solid stout from Southern Star.
