Finch’s 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 Finch’s Secret Stache Stout finishes powdery dry and highly drinkable.

Secret Stache pours a deep brown, with an extremely frothy, rather tall khaki head. The aroma contains sweet notes of caramel, toffee, and lots of roasted malt. After sampling the flavor, I find it to be very full for only a 5.3% ABV beer... It's big with coffee, dark chocolate, and vanilla bean flavor. It's got a creamy finish and a pleasantly soft mouth feel. Overall, a fine balance of toasty, bitter, and sweet! I'm glad I tried it, as I hadn't heard of the brewery before - would definitely buy again.

This is one of the smoothest stouts I have ever tried. The coffee hits you in the mouth, the chocolates warms the nose, and the vanilla bean makes it all flow smooth. This is a sweeter stout, but one I can finish any day with. Pour over vanilla ice cream, and there is nothing better.
