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.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
$3 16oz "tall boy" can poured into a Samuel Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. Appearance: Pitch black... car oil kind of black. Theres a tiny head, but it goes away almost instantly, with just a thin, brown layer of foam on top. Lacing, at least initially, is sexy. Smell: Super dark, roasted malts is the most notable thing here. However, theres plenty of chocolate-like notes as well, with some vanilla. The vanilla definitely comes out more in the aroma than it does in the flavor, which MAY be a good thing. (The vanilla is the main thing that drew me to this beer). Taste/feel: What a stout. Forget the fact that it comes from a can. What. A. Stout. Balanced very, very well. Its never too sweet, or too bitter. Front of the sip is a bit of dark fruits (?) for sweetness, but then theres pretty much nothing but malty, chocolate goodness until the end. As the beer warms up, the beer seems to get a tad bit more bitter, and the vanilla comes out a LITTLE more, but I notice a lot of people complaining about the vanilla in it. To be honest, I dont really get much at all (at least when its cold)... and that disappoints me. Its there in a subtle way, but I actually wanted a little bit more. Regardless of that, this is still a slick-in-the-mouth, quality stout: an absolute delight.

Very strong chocolate milk aroma explodes from the can. Nice cocoa nib flavor. Cola like carbonation. Vanilla. Roasted. Which it was a bitter thicker. Top 50 sweet stout for a reason.

tmoreau (4013) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Shared 16 oz. can poured to snifters at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a black/brown hue, with a respectable layer of brownish tan head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The aroma presented hints of freezer burn & woodiness, roastiness, cocoa, vanilla bean including the skin, and a bit of caramel sweetness. A little less than medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and a touch of creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste was somewhat similar to the nose, with a distinct dose of tobacco that partnered with dryness, and a roasted & earthy bitterness. The texture was also milder than medium, and although not all that sweet & robust, this Stout offered a fairly decent smoothness & tastiness.

koleminer20 (3069) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2016
16 oz can. The pour is a thin black with a thick pillowy light khaki head that falls down to a ring,waving some good lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a lot of roasty malt. A decent chocolate, lightly bitter, light vanilla and a strong lactose. Light, but not bad. The flavor is more roasty. There is a bit of a bitter chocolate and a light vanilla. Its decent. Heavy roast and light bitter chocolate define it. Maybe a light sweet lactose on the finish. The mouth feel is thin and watery at first, but the carbonation is excellent. The aftertaste is roasty and dry with a hint of bitter chocolate and a light vanilla-tinted lactose. Pretty decent beer
