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.

Pours pitch black, aromas of espresso, bakers chocolate. The taste is full of roasted notes with a bitter coffee finish. This beer amazes me, the mouth feel is very full for the low abv, I almost don’t believe this is 5.3% awesome stuff all around.

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!

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pint can poured like motor oil, but with a durable brown head. Aroma: coffee, milk and dark chocolate. Less roasted malt than expected. T: dark roasted malts; no burnt quality; lots of dark chocolate, light vanilla and a trace of coffee, Rather sweet but not cloying. . M: Full-bodied; appropriately low carbonation. Very creamy. O: A rich and satisfying sweet stout with a wallop of chocolate malts.

mathieuc (1141) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Pours pitch black with a huge "milk chocolate" head. Carbonation level is on the lower side (which I appreciate) so it (the head) doesn’t stay around for too long, oh well. Aroma is really nice, with faint notes of vanilla, coffee and chocolate, I use the word "faint" but I’d rather say "in their place" as none is overpowering the other, quite wonderful! Flavor is also not overpowering, unlike many beers out there there is no standout flavor here. I get a little chocolate, a little coffee and a little vanilla - in that order. It is really balanced and not a flavor bomb which often come out as roasted malts or ash bombs when speaking about stouts, a really masterful act here!

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours thick black like espresso with a thin tan head. Nose is umami, roasted coffee and chocolate. Tastes of roasted mildly bitter coffee, charred beef, and chocolate come through with underlying vanilla and umami notes and a touch of sweetness. Full, creamy body with low carbonation. This is a tasty, easy drinking stout with pleasant roasted bitterness that’s tempered by a mild chocolate sweetness.

unclemattie (4115) - Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2013
16oz can. Kinda weird seeing something so dark come from a can. Pours black. Aroma of burnt grain, licorice, vanilla oak, alcoholic esters. Mmm tastes like a stout. There’s nice char character, very burnt flavors, sweet burnt grains, wooded earthy hops. Very bold flavors. It’s quite a delicious stout. (3740)

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2013
16oz can: pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing beige head. Has a sweet vanilla and milk chocolate nose. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet milk chocolate and vanilla with some caramel malts and light roast before a drier smooth finish. A nice dessert beer.

JDBaker11058 (1204) - Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Appearance:tallboy can, pours deep, dark brown with one finger of tan head and decent legs. Aroma: big nose of roasty chocolate, molasses, espresso, pudding, and sweet cream. Taste: roasty, bittersweet, prominent chocolate, cream, hint of star anise. Finish: smooth and creamy with lingering roasty notes and a hint of lactic tang. Notes: Very nice stout. Perfect for dessert. Smelled, looked, and tasted a lot bigger than 5%, but the palate is light enough to keep this an every day treat.

Can @ Cypress St Pint & Plate: Murky black with a small, light-brown head. Earthy aroma with sugar and molasses and some sweet spices. It boasts an amazing complex flavor of choco-malt, root beer, vanilla and a slight hint of coffee. Thick, full body with sweet flavors and aftertaste.

Looks like used motor oil with a nice khaki head. Aroma is mild, but had chocolate and fruit. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate. Nice creamy brew.
