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.

Can poured into pint glass from Lucia’s Bodega, Windham NH. Aroma is strong chocolate and roasted malt with hint of coffee, fruit, and liquor. Appearance is pitch black with negligible, transient coating of light brown head and no lacing. Taste is heavy sweet chocolate with some vanilla and mild coffee bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with creamy thick texture, soft carbonation and nice long balance of sweet and bitter finish with a pleasant sensation between the back teeth. Overall, this is really nice beer.

Thanks to GhostFace for this one in the local beer swap. Cheers, Neal! Pours a deep obsidian color with a dark tan head. Nose is roasted malts, earth, coffee, slight licorice, and mild vanilla. Flavor is roast, vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, earth, licorice, and some mild hoppy bitterness and vanilla notes on the back end. A sessionable, complex, roasty and vanilla stout? Outstanding!

A very nice and surprising Vanilla Stout! Received in a recent trade, thanks so much! I The vanilla is well integrated with the stout, sweet, but not over the top. Flavor is roast, vanilla, dark chocolate, and slight coffee. A very easy drinking and delicious beer!

16oz Can, pretty fresh. Served at around 55F.

Pours black with a two finger rich brown head, leaves beautiful drippy rings and sheets of lacing and holds a good cap. Purty.

Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts...that’s pretty much it, but that’s all there needs to be. Good to very good strength.

Flavor is more of the same, vanilla, rich creamy chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, fairly sweet, minimal bitterness, minimal alcohol. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, very creamy, gotta figure there’s some oatmeal at work here, soft to moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking.

Man this stuff is good. A real nice rich dessert, but not too big, so it’s soooo easy to drink. Tons of body and flavor for a 5.3% ABV Stout. Nailed it!

Pours a nice dark brown color with a quickly fading light brown head. Aroma is simple with vanilla, roast and Oreo cookies. Flavor is smooth and quite rich for 5.3%. Lots of vanilla, roast and chocolate.

Black pour with a chunky brown head that laces all the way down. Massive roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and vanilla beans. Fantastic flavor of chewy chocolate, roast, coffee beans and vanilla. Great creamy mouthfeel with a bittersweet ending. Damn good beer.

Pours black with a thin mocha head. Aroma has wonderful dark chocolate notes. Flavor has lots of dark chocolate and just a touch of burnt bitterness and a hint of peat/smoke cutting through the sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a nice dark chocolate finish.
