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.

Pours black with tan head and no lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate and baileys. Creamy. Taste is the same with roasted malts, cacao, and slightly bitter finish.

Draft, Portsmouth Brewery’s guest tap. Dark black pour with thick tan foam that laced well. Nose is molasses and roasted barley. Texture of this stout is what I enjoyed the most, very creamy. Flavors of chocolate, bakers chocolate and notes of molasses. Secondary flavors of burnt sugar, vanilla and barley. Not too sweet; balanced just enough. I’m glad I waited for this on draft and didn’t buy a can. Really nice stout.

Can at home. Pours opaque black with a large, creamy and frothy brown head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and lightly smoked malt, vanilla, prunes, licorice, and earthy hops. Flavor is dark malt, light smoke, vanilla, light hops and bitterness, and a lightly sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

From 16oz can. Dark with slight light-brown head. Strong chocolate aroma. Tastes of chocolate from cocoa powder. Not a bad chocolate stout - not as good as TenFidy, but much better than Young's Double Chocolate Stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1695) - Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Appearance:tallboy can, pours deep, dark brown with one finger of tan head and decent legs. Aroma: big nose of roasty chocolate, molasses, espresso, pudding, and sweet cream. Taste: roasty, bittersweet, prominent chocolate, cream, hint of star anise. Finish: smooth and creamy with lingering roasty notes and a hint of lactic tang. Notes: Very nice stout. Perfect for dessert. Smelled, looked, and tasted a lot bigger than 5%, but the palate is light enough to keep this an every day treat.

16oz can. Pours solid dark brown with a brown head. Palate is surprisingly thin with an oily mouthfeel. Big roasty aroma. Hints of chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Overall it’s OK but I’m not finding it to be anything really great which is disappointing after reading so many rave reviews before tasting it.

Can. Swear I popped open a can of oil! It looks thick and viscuous, the thin head dissipating quickly. The aroma also hints at a thick monster, rife with milk chocolate and vanilla. But it drinks much thinner than I thought it would. The flavors are full-on, though, so it should fit the bill for a thick beer seeker. Interesting it’s "only" 5.3%, would’ve guessed more.

16 oz can purchased at Pinocchio’s Beer Garden in Media, Pennsylvania. The pour is black, deep brown, with a nice solid one inch dark tan head. The aroma is toffee caramel malt, roast, burning toast and a bit of iodine. The taste is the roast, the lightly sweet iodine, and the lactose character which I had not noticed in the aroma. I got a bit of Kalamazoo Stout character to this, though not nearly as integrated. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, soft carbonation, and a sweetish roasty finish. I like my stouts a bit drier, though this one was nice - certainly the nicest of the three Finch’s beers I had.
