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.

Best Craft Dry Irish Stout in my opinion! Rich Chocolate Hue, milk like texture with hints of chocolate and vanilla.

Pours bitch black with a large brown head. Smells roasted, chocolaty, and of vanilla. Taste is chocolate and vanilla with some roast tones underneath. Medium-to-full bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Finch’s Secret Stache Stout finishes with a blended sweetness of chocolate and vanilla.

Black pore from a can. Smooth chocolate. Beautiful stout. Aftertaste is not extreme. No complaints

Pretty much exactly what I want from a Stout! Love the art work, and that it comes in a Can! Rich chocolate, coffee, vanilla on the nose. Pours oily black with rich caramel colored head that dies quickly but leaves thick brown sticky lacing. Tastes exactly how it smells. I worry when I hear brewed with vanilla that I will get a syrupy sweetness but not here, just a hint of vanilla. Dry coffee and dark chocolate notes, splash of lactose and under carbonated (which is perfect for this beer) All I want to give this a perfect score is bourbon aging, please please please put this on bourbon!

Really dark brew with a lot going on. Dense on the nose with hints of vanilla, roasted malt, and tan foam on top tat disappears. Well hidden alcohol, and a super pillowy, smooth texture. A really delicious, exceptional stout.

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.

Lots of tones in the flavor. Bold with subtle touches of chocolate and hops. Great for fans of stouts and porters

can. jet black with a large, fluffy, dark brown head. milk chocolate aroma. flavor has that kind of bitter vanilla extract flavor beneath a heavily roasted and chocolaty malt base with moderate sweetness. a milky and smooth palate that i’m really diggin’. like there’s a dollop of sugar free vanilla ice cream in it. an easy drinking, highly sessionable stout.

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!
