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.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Yum, yum, yum. This is one mighty-fine beer. Beautifully dark with a smooth, rich palate. Little to no after taste. No bitterness at all. Great drinkable beer.

Canned. No clear date. Pour into a tulip. Pours black with a very large very pretty tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, very sweet chocolate, coffee notes, slight sweetness (vanilla?). Flavor is again, sweet chocolate flavor. Pretty good body on it for a 5.3% beer. Not too weak. Vanilla comes through in the aftertaste.

Pint can. Jet black and tan head. Wow. What a flavorful chocolate and full bodied. Damb surprised how rich this is for 5%. Who needs an imperial stout when you can have this?

Sample at the brickstore. Good bit of roasty malt. Chocolate is present but well balanced and nice. Nice roasted coffee aroma and bittersweet flavors on the finish. A little thin malt body but the flavors are good enough.

4/18/15. Howells and Hood. Pour deep mahogany with little head and no lacing. Faint roasty nose. Drinks like a delicate milk stout w strong vanilla and swerve notes. Super smooth and drinkable. Doesn't leave much of an impression. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (3998) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 13, 2015
New beer distributors, nyc can: pours near black with unexciting head. Aroma is coffee and vanilla. Taste is a bit sweet. Nice notes of vanilla... Relatively subtle. In honesty, i do not see where this super high rating is coming from... This average stout.

Draught @ Barleycorn. Dark brown with small beige creamy head, vanilla aroma, low carbonation, balanced mocha taste, full body, slight alcohol undertones, longish finish with mocha aftertaste. Quite a nice brew.

16 oz. can at home. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have nice roasted malts, dark chocolate, hints of coffee, vanilla, sweetness is there, but also roasty bitterness, solid drinking lighter stout I would have again.
