COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Secret Stache Stout is a robust stout. The specialty ingredients, vanilla bean and lactose, lend to its complexity and full flavor. While no actual chocolate was used to brew this beer, heaps of chocolate malt give the beer its color as well as its chocolate and coffee notes.

From the can. It pours the color of oil with a small head that dissipates almost on contact. A bevy of aromas including roasted dark malts and vanilla bean with a burnt smoky quality top it. All very subtle but all very distinctive. Medium smooth body. The taste has is also quite roasty and toasty with a low bitterness finishing slightly dry.

This one poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of coffee and vanilla, and roasted malt, very inviting. Flavor was similar, verty smooth and flavorful for a lower abv stouf. Probably one of the best i;ve had in a long time. Right up there with mean old tom.

A very delicious and smooth stout with lots of roasted chocolate malts that provide a sweet satisfaction. Flavors of chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, roasted malts, and rye bread. Very tasty. I bet this would be awesome in a beer float.

Looks like used motor oil with a nice khaki head. Aroma is mild, but had chocolate and fruit. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate. Nice creamy brew.

Can; Pour is fairly murky brown with a one finger, fine bubbled khaki head into this glass. It poured more viscous than expected; frankly I wondered if this was really going to be a sweet stout but the abv puts it into the stout category, it seems. It retains on the average side, with some sticky lacing present here. The nose is mild vegetable, chocolate milk, cocoa bean, mild vanilla, with feint roast. The flavor profile is coffee, chocolate morsel, lactose, vanilla, with a fairly robust feeling - its roast dominant, however. This was a slight surprise - a nice offering from finch, nicer than most.

Pours opaque, like motor oil with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is black olives, chocolaty malt and vanilla. Taste is sweet. Roasted malts, coffee bean and bitter chocolate. Nice medium body with almost no carbonation. Goes down very smooth. Overall a very sessionable stout with decent complexity in the nose and good flavor. Good.
