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.

22oz bomber via trade. Poured a very good looking medium density pitch black with a strong looking deep beige body. Aroma of burnt pudding, vanilla, dark toast, pudding skins, old vanilla cake. Medium to lighter bodied with softer carbonation and a quick fading after taste. Flavor is the same as the aroma, chocolate and marshmellow vanilla, ligthly burnt toast, hint of burnt citrus. Solid solid beer especially for the lower ABV.

Can shared at a local tasting, pours black with a thin brown head, the aroma has a good amount of chocolate on the nose with a little bit of coffee and vanilla, the flavor has a nice chocolate front end with a sweet finish, some coffee notes in the finish too, good mouthfeel, pretty impressed.

From a can, fairly cool, smells like strong impy stout. Look is keen. Black and thick, viscous black used shovelhead oil. Thick and rich impact, deep while trying to be docile. Thick dark tasting mullion of dark burned bark flavor. Not sure if the vanilla adds to much to this brew. Stout fer sure. Dark malt impact on finish. Ends with shades of old burnt dampened wood from an overnight camp fire that was put out with a warm spring rain.

16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, light char, coffee, toast, vanilla, toffee, cream, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roasted malt notes with moderate creamy vanilla; with good strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, light char, toast, vanilla, toffee, cream, and roasted earthiness. Slight coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, light char, toast, vanilla, cream, and toffee on the finish for a while. Really great balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors with moderate creamy vanilla; with huge robustness and no cloying flavors present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent vanilla cream stout! Great flavor complexity and balance with big robustness; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Can: Medium roast coffee, moderate strength, lesser vanilla and raisin notes. Black, thin beige head. Vanilla is the dominant note with an earthier base instead of coffee. Subtle raisin hint throughout. Quite a bit of flavor packed in a low abv stout

The color is nearly black with a small, off-white head. The aroma has a lot of vanilla along with milk chocolate. It has a medium, sticky body with average carbonation. The taste is mostly sweet with a slightly roasted, dry finish.

A good flavor but doesn't keep long once you pour it into the glass from the can. It's not something you can really drink fast either. Overall it has a good flavor of pecans, caramel, toffee, and vanilla. I like it because it is different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
