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.

Pint can. Smell of chocolate and coffee and vanilla is amazing. Looks good, midnight black. Taste is complex, coffee and vanilla on the front, sweetness on the aftertaste. A little thinner than I’d like on the tongue. All in all, this is exceptional.

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
On tap at Town Hall Brewery, Minneapolis. Pitch black with a resilient beige-brown head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, light roast. Flavor is loads of chocolate, vanilla, roast, coffee. Not much bitterness, rather soft. Lingering vanilla, chocolate. Very solid. Full body, velvety, soft, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. A very, very solid stout.

Finch’s Secret Stache Stout has a rather thin, beige head, a very, very dark brown (black) appearance, and a lacing sheen left on the glass. The aroma is of chocolate malt, dark coffee, and cream. Taste is of creamy, black malts, some char (but, not much), astringent bitterness, and no vanilla, that I could detect. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Finch’s Secret Stache Stout finishes powdery dry and highly drinkable. RJT

This is another excellent beer from Finch’s. Nice and creamy. Great flavors of chocolate and coffee, with just a touch of spice. Balanced and drinkable, but with sufficient cream and flavor.

Can from Salt Gastropub in Byram. Roasted malt and high quality chocolate compliment this natural sweet lactose. Silky palate. My first by this brewer. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance was clear jet black with mocha creamy diminishing tiny head, no lacing. Aromas are soft brown sugar, roasted barley, slight chocolate and coffee.

Pour on tap, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought roast, some coffee, hints of vanilla but pretty mild, some slight cocoa as well with a hint of caramel. Taste was a mix of dark cocoa, roast, coffee, hints of slight fruity notes into some vanilla, caramel, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.

16oz can. Deep brown black body. Thin, fading beige head. Smooth and sweet, a pretty enjoyable Sweet Stout. The vanilla and lactose smooth out all the big specialty malts. A little overly sweet, not much going on besides the sweetness, no depth. Tasty, but not that impressive of a venture.
