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.

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...thatís pretty much it, but thatís 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 thereís 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 itís soooo easy to drink. Tons of body and flavor for a 5.3% ABV Stout. Nailed it!

Finchís Secret Stache Stout has a rather thin, beige head, a very, very dark brown (black) appearance, and a lacing sheen left on the glass. The aroma is of chocolate malt, dark coffee, and cream. Taste is of creamy, black malts, some char (but, not much), astringent bitterness, and no vanilla, that I could detect. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Finchís Secret Stache Stout finishes powdery dry and highly drinkable. RJT

This is another excellent beer from Finchís. Nice and creamy. Great flavors of chocolate and coffee, with just a touch of spice. Balanced and drinkable, but with sufficient cream and flavor.

TheHopster (831) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Can from Salt Gastropub in Byram. Roasted malt and high quality chocolate compliment this natural sweet lactose. Silky palate. My first by this brewer. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance was clear jet black with mocha creamy diminishing tiny head, no lacing. Aromas are soft brown sugar, roasted barley, slight chocolate and coffee. Taste are smooth roasted barley upfront with lactose middle, then chocolate, coffee backend. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light-medium body, then lasting roasty balanced finish.

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Pour on tap, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought roast, some coffee, hints of vanilla but pretty mild, some slight cocoa as well with a hint of caramel. Taste was a mix of dark cocoa, roast, coffee, hints of slight fruity notes into some vanilla, caramel, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.

nuplastikk (4671) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2014
16oz can. Deep brown black body. Thin, fading beige head. Smooth and sweet, a pretty enjoyable Sweet Stout. The vanilla and lactose smooth out all the big specialty malts. A little overly sweet, not much going on besides the sweetness, no depth. Tasty, but not that impressive of a venture.

16 oz can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color with a smooth 1" brown head, wide bands of lace. Nice aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate malt that grows more bitter and coffee-like as it nears the finish. Simple in design, but, oh, so delicious. Highly recommended.
