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.

Pleasant roasty aroma, a bit sticky, maybe scalded milk too. Taste even better, super rich, but mellow too, nice coffee cake creaminess. Full palate, roast sticks to the tongue. Finish is milky coffee. That might be because they added lactose and coffee? So, yes, this tastes of beer with stuff added. However, it’s very drinkable.

Some vanilla in the aroma. Crisp, carbonated body with only mild vanilla in the flavor. Really dry finish. There is something missing from the overall brew.

olio (8986) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2016
1 pint can @ Ville & Vilja, Tampere. BBE 12/2016.
Pours black color with a large beige head. Roasted malts and caramel on the aroma, cocoa and mild vanilla, fair amount of hops too. Flavor is very pleasant creamy chocolaty, roasted notes and malts, cocoa and sweet vanilla, subtle coffee, mild hops also. Slightly bitter yet creamy palate, nice balance. The amount of vanilla is just right here. Very tasty.

Cigarette taste alert! Light body for a stout. I am not a fan of this canned incarnation. The 4 of them were pricey. And for what? A bland, bodiless stout with very low ABV? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
