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.

A very tasty stout. Pours dark with a thick head. Thickish mouthfeel with a ton of bitter chocolate and residual lactic character.

Nice aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of coffee bean. Ebony color with a dark tan head...nice volume on the head. Sweet malt up front. Dark roasted malt flavor, bitter chocolate, with a nice sweet balance Some vanilla hidden in there. Bitterness is like bitter chocolate, nice flavor, coats palate on the way down. Coffee flavor echoes as well. Slightly slick mouth feel. Nice stout.

Pours an opaque, extremely dark brown with an ample dark tan head with a reddish hue. Spider webbing around the inside of the glass. Coffee and lactose on the nose. Thick and smooth with some fine carbonation. A lot of depth in the flavors. Coffee, vanilla, and lactose.

Really enjoy this one; nice blend of chocolate, coffee and a touch of vanilla. Smooth, creamy, not too boozy - lovely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (1161) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Can. A- Dry cocoa, bitter chocolate, roasty. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Roasty, cocoa, slightly bitter, dry, subtle coffee, subtle vanilla. P- Full body, thin texture, average carbonation, dry finish. O- The vanilla should have been a lot forward considering it advertised the vanilla on the can yet it was very subdued. Quite dry and roasty and didn’t seem very complex or rich at any point.

tfontana (306) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 1, 2015
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.
