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 a deep brown with thick tan head, decent lacing. Aroma of vanilla, roasted chocolate malt, caramel, and very slight coffee. Flavor matches well and comes together quite nicely, especially after being quite skeptical when opening it.

mansquito (3908) - 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.

Can to stout glass. Black pour with a big beige tan head. Roasty cocoa on the nose along with some sweetness and vanilla. Taste is very similar to the nose with some more sweetness from the milk sugars. Smooth mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Dope beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rjplumer (588) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Profound roasted chocolate malt aroma. Black bodied with a stiff finger tan colored head, Smooth roasted dark chocolate milk taste with a touch of vanilla to balance it out. Only faint glimpse of bitterness. Feels lightly carbonated Has a sort dry cocoa feel in the finish yet feels smooth and a tad sweet.
