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.

Tmoney99 (12404) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Draft sample at IBGWF 2013. Poured clear dark ruby color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet chocolate malt and vanilla aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt and sweet vanilla ice cream flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid smooth brew.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Can… This beer rocks!… Pitch black pour with a small, creamy, taupe head. The aroma supplies gobs of dark chocolate, milk chocolate and caramel. I’m not picking up much vanilla – it’s there, but I really had to dig for it. Full-bodied and über creamy – fatty even – with feather-soft carbonation. At room temperature, both the flavor and finish are malty, carbonic swirls of bittersweet dark chocolate and espresso with only a sliver of vanilla. The best moderate-gravity stout I’ve tried in a very long while! A session stout that drinks like an imperial stout. Huge thanks to StFun for including this can as an extra in a trade!
