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.

Poured from a tap. May have been the pour, but very little head. Incredibly dark black beer, 0 translucence. Good texture, decent lacing. Very subtle coffee aroma, but strong going down the throat. I thought the ABV was much higher. Chocolate notes at the end.

ScipioA (401) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2014
Pours out looking great - black with a huge cappuccino brown/tan head. Somewhat of a muted stout aroma, nothing really memorable about it. Very sweet, I get the impression of a heavily sugared espresso. I donít really get any of the vanilla beyond a whiff in the aftertaste, but this is definitely delicious. Smooth and thick for a 5% abv stout. Great beer, and love that it comes in 16 oz cans, the beer format of kings.

Can into an English pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a small dark khaki head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is caramel, coffee, toasted malts, dark chocolate, with a bit of licorice and vanilla. Taste is toasty malts, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, and hints of vanilla and caramel. Slightly bitter, moderately sweet. Average finish length of mostly bittersweet chocolate/cocoa and toasty malts. Medium full body, somewhat creamy texture, average carbonation. Overall a fine sweet stout. I would have liked for the vanilla to have been boosted as it only gives a bit of background character here. But overall definitely worth your time and money.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2014
Appearance: Used oil black with brown edges, very quickly dissipating brown head.
Aroma: Sweet caramel with some roasted malts and hints of licorice.
Taste: Mildly sweet with hints of caramel and a touch of roasted malts. Molasses and licorice ruin the back end.
Palate: Medium bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: The finish ruins this for me. Otherwise itís a decent stout.

Crushed with Jakebra

Pours basically black with a medium sized head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is roasty, itís got some coffe and dark chocolate... itís sweet-ish smelling with a bit of the vanilla, but itís not dominant or overbearing in any way.

The flavor is certainly more bitter than sweet, but also within the sweetness level appropriate for the style for sure. Itís roasty & has more bitter chocolate than vanilla, but the vanilla is subtle and works just right here.

Dang they hit the mark on this one.

Smooth and sweet with a slight bitterness. Chocolate comes through nicely not overpowering.
