Notes/Commercial Description:
Va-va-voom! Our Temptress is seduction in a glass. Curvy in all the right places, this Imperial Milk Stout pours with a thick, milk chocolate head. Chocolate and caramel malt give it a rich and complex body while the lower carbonation gives the beer a silky mouth feel. She’s voluptuous, with a soft alcohol warmth that grows deeper with every sip. Take your time with her and she’ll reward you.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Dark as night with a half-finger head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing around the glass.

Smell: Yum! Caramel, vanilla, sweet chocolate. Mouth-watering smell.

Taste: Delicious beer. It's got a great sweetness to it, highlighted by caramel and some chocolate. I can taste just a little bit of the alcohol, but not much. I really love the sweetness to it. It's very desert-like.

Mouthfeel: A fair amount of carbonation, very easy drinking.

Overall: I love it! This is a great milk-stout with a lot of sweetness. Proud of my homeland for producing such a wonderful beer!

Another extra from BullDoza...stoked to try this one as I love a good milkstout

Bottled on date states 6.18.14. Poured into a Woodshop 7th Anniversary tasting glass. Upon opening the bottle there is very little carbonation. A vigorous pour confirms slight but not a ton of carbonation. Appearance is black. Not viscous though. Smells of chocolate and coffee...not a lot of lactose though. Taste is smooth. Slightly sweet. The lactose makes itself known but is more sugary than sweet. Milk chocolate notes. It's almost like a toned down (but imperial version of Left Hand Nitro). Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall, it's a good beer, but it's certainly not the best milk stout I've had. I still rank Beachwood's Udder Love and Left Hand's Nitro the two best that I've had. Still, a decent beer. Cheers!

Enjoyed from a spigaleua glass.

a - brew poured a lush brush that settled in the glass almost black with sienna highlights when held to the light. Mocha tan colored cap didn't hang out long and left spots of lace if at all.

s - nose is a medley of soft burnt bakers chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. Inviting,

t/m/o - really comes alive in your mouth. Roasted milk chocolate with a hint of burnt. Really well done. Super tarty, big bold flavor, full bodied and chewy, but super easy to drink. Really enjoyed this one.
