Pours bitch black with a large brown head. Smells roasted, chocolaty, and of vanilla. Taste is chocolate and vanilla with some roast tones underneath. Medium-to-full bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Finch’s Secret Stache Stout finishes with a blended sweetness of chocolate and vanilla.

Pours black with a thin mocha head. Aroma has wonderful dark chocolate notes. Flavor has lots of dark chocolate and just a touch of burnt bitterness and a hint of peat/smoke cutting through the sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a nice dark chocolate finish.

Can. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malt, bitter chocolate. Flavor of sweet vanilla, lactose, chocolate, and roast in the finish. Great vanilla stout - very hearty and rich for a low abv beer!

Black pour with a chunky brown head that laces all the way down. Massive roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and vanilla beans. Fantastic flavor of chewy chocolate, roast, coffee beans and vanilla. Great creamy mouthfeel with a bittersweet ending. Damn good beer.

Pours a deep brown with thick tan head, decent lacing. Aroma of vanilla, roasted chocolate malt, caramel, and very slight coffee. Flavor matches well and comes together quite nicely, especially after being quite skeptical when opening it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Dror Sparrow. Pours black, opaque with brown ring, coffee, slightly wooden vanilla aroma, sweet, medicinal, hot chocolate and faint vanilla taste. Smooth, hardly any carbonation, medium body, long finish and a little oily texture. Good, complex and surprising.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can, shared by Jay. Black color. Thin brown head, fades a bit, but leaves decent lace. Vanilla, cocoa powder in the nose. Light body. Kind of a chewy texture. Light carbonation. A bit thin, but it does go down easy. Sweet taste, vanilla, chocolate milk in the flavor. Nice one, if you’re looking for a light, drinkable vanilla flavored sweet stout

Man this stuff is good. A real nice rich dessert, but not too big, so it?s soooo easy to drink. Tons of body and flavor for a 5.3% ABV Stout. Nailed it!
