Appears a pitch black hue with a tan colored head, creamy fine lacing. Aroma hints of anise, vanilla, toasted oak with dark malts roasted coffee/dark chocolate notes. Flavor has creamy dark chocolate notes with herbal hops, creamy iced coffee with candy like sugar qualities not overly sweet balanced by dark roasts nearly burnt. Mouthfeel medium bodied slightly creamy textures nice easy going carbonation. Overall it has easy drinking qualities with a solid stout base and vanilla additions light years better than their flagship IPA.

A: Pours a jet black with a thin, creamy tan mousse that makes a point of disappearing rather quickly.

S: Aromas of vanilla bean, heavy cream, roasted grain, coffee, and dark chocolate fill the nose.

T: Notes of vanilla, cream, roasted grain, coffee, chocolate, dried black cherries, leather, and mildly earthy hops fill the mouth. The finish is toasty and smooth with pronounced vanilla, cream, leather, coffee, and dark chocolate flavors.

M: Medium-bodied, silky, and smooth. Carbonation is gentle and delicate. Though this is a bit slighter and thinner than many American stouts, it is incredibly easy to drink.

O: Overall, this is a good, basic American stout. Fans of the style should be pleased.

Poured from a 16oz can, no date evident, into a pint glass
A: Pitch black, even an aggressive pour left a thin head
S: Grain, nuts, coffee and cocoa - all nicely toasted
T: The cocoa is in the foreground of the palate, the promised vanilla comes through (I didn't smell it) then it's rounded out by the rest of the grain/coffee/nuts that are also on the nose
M: Medium-bodied, smooth
O: Tasty and a solid effort; all the right parts are there but for me they just didn't harominze

Pounder Can > 2X IPA Glass

A - Pours out pitch black with a thin layer of fizzy brown head, no lacing.
S - Wonderful aroma, tons of vanilla, nice roasty malt, some toffee tones to it, a little dark chocolate, roasted coffee, a touch of hazelnut.
T - Rich flavor, but not over the top, creamy smooth roasted malt, sweet vanilla bean, toffee. This almost has a brown ale quality to it, mildly nutty. It is somewhat thin at the end.
M - Super creamy and smooth without being super sweet, quaffable to the max.
O - Very good, lots of Vanilla flavor and a nice toffee touch to it. Though I appreciate the lower alcohol content of this one, because its packed with flavor, it could benefit just a little from a more thick and velvety composure in flavor.

$3.19 for a 16oz can at Siciliano's. Brewed with vanilla and lactose. 5.3% ABV.

Pours out to a clear deep black. Pretty thick and dark for a 5.3% beer. Forms a nice creamy dark tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Carbonation is mild-moderate, ~2.0 carbs or so. The aroma opens with vanilla, some carob, a little black walnut, roasted grains, and distant hops. Mouthfeel is smooth with a viscosity bigger than the 5.3% would have you believe, partly due to it's lower carbonation. The taste is a recap of the aroma. Bitterness is mild, but there is still some late addition hop flavor rounding out the roasted grain notes. Burnt marshmallows and burnt sugar in the finish, but not sweet, per say (despite the lactose). There is a weird combination of flavors going on between the hops and the roast malt. It's not bad, but a touch acidic. Otherwise, cleanly fermented.

This is an interesting beer. I think most stout lovers are going to enjoy it, and like I said, it has an impressive mouthfeel despite the 5.3%, however the acidity of the hops and the roast hurts it a bit and doesn't lend to me drinking more than one of these at any given time.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Aroma 12/12
Strong roasted chocolate malts and a rich roasted grainy dark malt immediately hit the nose. No hops or diacetyl. A sweet heavy almost syrupy caramel flavor comes through as it warms with just a hint of maple. Vanilla comes through to intermingle in the background and add a good balance of the other aromas. It smells like a quality chocolate malted.

Appearance 3/3
Opaque deep dark brown. Frothy and creamy brown tan head that has excellent retention. Sticks with a thick brown creamy layer of foam to the sides that stay there.

Taste 16/20
Roasted bitter chocolate and roasted dark malts. A dark roasted chocolate and malt aftertaste that lingers with a light pleasant bitterness. As it warms the vanilla comes through and balances out the bitterness to make it less like a quality grainy chocolate malted and more like a semi-sweet chocolate stout. The bitterness is not quite balanced with the vanilla and lactic sweetness.

Mouthfeel 5/5
Thick, full bodied, creamy, and smooth. Leaves a nice stache of foam on the lips. Medium-light carbonation. Very slight astringency as expected from the dominant roasted malt profile.

Overall Impression 8/10
An solid example of an American Stout. It could be more carbonated. It finds a bit of difficulty finding just the right balance between the bitterness and the vanilla as it warms. It seems to be in between the really sweet cream stouts and the more bitter roasted chocolate stouts. Choosing one of these directions would make for a richer experience.

I had this beer the other night. I definitely got notes of chocolate and coffee but no vanilla despite the fact that the word vanilla was on the can.

It was a tasty stout - but nothing stuck out to me about it. I've tried plenty of other chocolatey / coffee stouts before and this tasted very similar to those.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured a blackish body with minimal tan head that died quick. Mostly chocolate and roasted malts, a little breadiness and hint of coffee and vanilla (espresso?) in the nose. The beer is sweet, easy to drink (not heavy or sticky) and has a good balance between chocolate and vanilla sweetness and roasted/coffee malts, along with touches of dark fruit (I can only think of black cherries and something sugary like molasses/syrup/figs) and has a complimentary dry finish. I like this beer but I don't know if it was a too-chilled can or just mental on my part but there was a touch of medicinal/metallic "canniness" or something that caused some of the sips to be bitter and watery. Should've bought the bottle. Still a good beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

From the can. Sampled on December 18, 2013.

The color is dark brown to oily black. The lack of head makes it look more like oil.

The aromas are both subtle and distinctive with characters of dark roasted and burnt malts, vanilla beans, and a touch of smoke.

The body is about medium but it is also smooth and creamy like the way I enjoy stouts.

The taste evolves as it warms with the same distinctive smoked, roasted malts and vanilla flavors merging ever so slightly with a low dry hop bitterness. It evolves in favor of the vanilla.

Poured this 16 oz. can into a nonic glass. No date on can. The body was an opaque black/brown. The head was dense and tan. Solid lacing remained after a heavy pour.

The smell was ashy and grainy. Molasses and a bit metallic.

The taste was sweet with a deep fruitiness. Dark chocolate and cherry. Very drinkable and the alcohol is well hidden. Vanilla and some metallic notes too. Not off-putting but distinctly metal.

The mouthfeel was creamy with a medium body. Modest carbonation. Overall solid.

After only a slight hiss when I cracked the can, I gave this one a pretty aggressive pour and ended up with paper-thin khaki layer on the surface. Impressively black though, with absolutely no light getting through. Rich chocolate and coffee bean aromas front and center, lactose creaminess, caramelized sugar, and some mellow vanilla blended into everything. Kind of pipe tobacco-y as it warms up. Roasted malty flavor...coffee with cream and sugar, vanilla bean, tobacco, plenty of bittersweet chocolate, and nuts. Light on the carbonation, creamy texture, a little dry char developing as I sip it. Would make a nice dessert beer, though many wouldn't even consider a 5.3% ABV stout to do the job. Rich, creamy...very nice.

A: Pours an opaque thick and viscous jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass at the surface of the beer and a hint of very dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy dark mocha head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet milk chocolate with some lighter notes of lactose.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of dark and lightly roasted malts with moderate to strong flavors of milk chocolate. There are light to moderate flavors of vanilla towards the finish. There is definitely a presence of lactose in this brew. Very light hints of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable, if a touch sweet for my tastes. Definitely one that I would grab again as it was a hit with my wife and mother-in-law who both thought it was quite tasty. Would be a really nice beer with dessert.

12 oz can courtesy of the guys at Finch's, thanks! Poured into my DFH oversized snifter.

Pours an almost black body with a tan creamy head of good retention and lacing.

Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Maybe a little tobacco. Great aroma overall.

Taste is subdued compared to the aroma. A little watery. Still getting the roast character and a little bit of chocolate, maybe vanilla, not much coffee, drinkable but too bland.

Mouthfeel is crisp with a light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. A little thin. Slightly sticky and dry finish.

Overall, very drinkable, but suffers in that it is thin and diluted in the taste. Fantastic aroma though, and a great stout for those wary of a heavy mouthfeel.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours the darkest shade of brown with minimal molasses highlights around the periphery. The head is negligible in size but features a rich, mocha coloration that usually bodes well for stouts. No lacing to speak of. Aroma is mild, smelling of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a touch of black coffee.

The taste features bittersweet baker's chocolate and char up front with some milk chocolate coming through in the middle. The acrid character of the roast is quite assertive, but shy of overbearing. Coffee notes also peek in and out among the other burnt flavors. Dark chocolate lingers nicely into the finish, lending a touch of class. Traces of peppery hops start to sneak up on you as the beer warms, but that is balanced by the more pronounced dark chocolate character that comes with it. Do yourself a favor and give this brew ample time to warm up and reveal its full depth of flavor.

The most obvious pitfall here, and it really is quite unfortunate, is the thin body. A tasty, roasty, chocolatey stout like this should have at least a medium body, but this is just too loose to do the rest of the beer justice. Carbonation is barely there, but that's fine for the style. If there's a silver lining, it's that this stout is exceedingly easy to drink.

Secret Stache features outstanding coloration to complement its delicious chocolate backbone. The thin body is a disappointment, but that doesn't change the fact that this is a smooth, tasty stout with great drinkability. Not quite as amazing as I recall on tap, but still very good.

Saw this about a year ago and picked up the last four pack at my local beverage store. I really liked it. I was hoping to get some more later on but the store said it didn't sell that well and they didn't plan on ordering anymore. Bummer. Well today was a good day as it just happened to show up again on the shelf! Apparently the distributor made a deal the store could not refuse. For such a low alcohol content this beer is a really really big beer. I disagree that with another reviewer who thought it was 'thin'. It truly is motor oil. I'm thinking this stuff is darker than any of the imperial stouts I've tried (and I've tried more than a few). It's characteristics are pretty simple -- chocolate and vanilla -- and I'm OK with that. Tastes yummy. Not allot of crazy things going on like a high alcohol imperial stout but no mini-hangover the next day either from having two of these. Nothing else like this out there (as far as I know). A truly unique beer but more of a niche taste not for everyone.

3.43/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pours a dark motor oil color with a mall tan head that receded quickly.

Smell- Roasted coffee, char, vanilla and some oakiness. Also pick up some caramel and toffee.

Taste- Strong burnt roast flavor with some sweet vanilla to help balance it. Moderate bitterness. The vanilla has some extract flavor to it. Picks up a bit of tart flavor as it warms.

Mouthfeel- Fairly thin body for a stout, pretty dry. Carbonation is good though.

Overall- Not a bad beer but not very complex. Mainly burnt roast and vanilla in both the nose and the head. I'd like the body to be thicker too.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a half finger high dense tan head that died down and left lacing on the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a tall boy can into a glass beer mug. Almost no head but some slight tan laces. Smell is notably almost absent, but some sweet vanilla and molasses notes.

Taste is rather sweet, though compared to other vanilla beers it is not at all overwhelming. Also, not nearly as sweet as a typical American stout. No hops. Odd, given the many other Chicago/midwestern beers.

The mouthfeel is creamy, to be sure, but more compared to an American ale than a traditional Irish or English stout. Tasty, goes down smooth.

Overall: I'd drink it again with joy if someone bought me a pint but it's not a stout I'd seek out again.

Yay tall boy can... but hard to read the label to know what beer it is.

An aggressive pour yields a small but very dark creamy head that fades at a med pace with nice lacing, over pitch black beer, no light getting through.

Nose brings roast and coffee, fresh roasted coffee beans, roasted malt, a little char and touch acrid, and maybe a hint of black malt, then into the caramel like an almost burnt caramel, and some vanilla a mild but nice vanilla, a very dark creamy malt.

Taste brings plenty of dark chocolate, cocoa, and a nice vanilla melting around all that, a creamy melting chocolate and vanilla base, as well as a roasty character, roasted malt, some roasted coffee beans with a little coffee, mild acrid burnt roast as well. A mild earthy hint spicy like hop in the background brings some bitterness that blends with the bitter roast from the malts. It gets a little yeasty too unfortunately. A hint of a creamy oat in there too. Finish is drier, bit more bitterness too light spicy hops, light cocoa and dark chocolate, little melting choc, and vanilla lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, semi creamy and a little heavy, decent carb.

Overall not bad, a light but decent vanilla, nice dark malt characters that get just a touch acrid, a little yeasty character takes away from it a bit, but otherwise nice tasty and drinkable.

3.2/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Close to straight black with some dark brown at the edges when held to light. No head, no carbonation. Smooth and slightly viscous pour. Took me a bit by surprise.

Smell: Roasted. Very soft vanilla. Touches of old coffee with a solid, but not assertive, cocoa and dark chocolate element. Nutty and slightly sweet. Slight push of something almost like oats and lactose. Some darker sugars headed toward molasses, but never quite there. Vanilla comes out a bit more as the beer warms, as does the roasted character.

Taste: More of that roasted malt coupled with some nice hints of creamy vanilla. A nice compliment of roasted coffee beans and a slight touch of burnt malt. Malt sweetness is there, but not too aggressive, allowing some of the bitter roasted elements to shine through. Very minor hop influence, mostly herbal. Not particularly exciting, but solid. Coffee flavor lingers on the back. Slightly ashy with some small hints of licorice.

Mouthfeel: Nice and slick medium body with very minimal carbonation. Clean on the tongue.

Overall: Properly endorsed by Mustachio Furioso.

A decent canned stout. The vanilla adds enough to save it from being average, but doesn't bump it too far either.

Another new Finch's can I have seen around MA. Love seeing these new cans and some nice styles in them

A- Poured from the can for the review into a giant snifter. Leaves the bottle with a thick, oily consistency and a pitch black body. Small light mocha head raises up to about a finger high and has decent retention. Creamy ring leaves just a few spots of lace.

S- Dark roast malts dominate the aroma but you can tell it is a lower ABV stout right away. Cocoa powder, black grains, coffee beans and toffee notes come to mind. Hints of vanilla and dark fruits in the background.

T- Rich roast malt notes carry over from the aroma with flavors of big cocoa powder, coffee, burnt grains and dark sugars. Vanilla and dark fruit is stronger here as compared to the aroma and the former is quite nice with the other flavors present.

MF- Lactose lends some nice texture but overall it feels a bit thin or watery. Carbonation near the lower end of what I would want for a stout at this ABV. Finishes with some roasty bitterness.

Solid stout with a large cocoa powder flavor and some vanilla. Leaves a bit to be desired in the flavor and body but nothing comes off as bad.

16oz can poured into a pint glass.

A: Jet black pour. Seems to have good clarity.Brown head settles rather quickly. Thin, broken ring of lacing.

S: Roast and dark fudge sauce. Strong waft of vanilla brings a milk chocolate impression. Roasted coffee beans. Malted milk balls. Tight berry darkfruit deep in the background.

T: Dark chocolate fudge, woody and roasty, slightly acrid and acidic. Black coffee. Tight berry. All of this is tempered by the vanilla and lactose, which add enough sweetness to take the rougher edges away. Malted milk balls. Roasty, sooty, and smokey finish lasts a long time.

M: Moderately thick. Luxuriously creamy and silky. Modest sense of weight. Low carbonation.

O: A very easy beer to drink. The bolder and harsher flavors are brought into balance nicely by the lactose and vanilla sweetness, and the body and texture go a long way to increasing drinkability as well.

Poured from the can into a oversize wine glass. Color was a very dark brown, but not quite black. Had a mocha brown 2 finger head, only lasted a few minutes before leaving just a thin layer. Primary aroma was chocolate, very much like a Hershey's bar. Vanilla with a small hint of pepper in the back. Flavor was very slightly sweet, like watery chocolate milk, but also had sour notes. Coated very well, needed perhaps a touch of carbonation, seemed pretty flat. Overall not bad, but not very flavorful or with any must have qualities.
