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

12oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to GHB for the extra.

Appearance: Dark brown with a 1" head that recedes to ring.

Smell: A chocolaty sweetness prevails over some coffee and vanilla.

Taste: Creamy milk chocolate flavors, with both some mocha and vanilla. Very solid milk stout, I get no lactic sourness (which makes me very happy) just a deliciously balanced yet chocolaty beer. The alcohol is barely noticeable.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth with a creamy finish.

Overall: Very sold milk stout, I could easily have another.

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!

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!

On nitro tap at the Common Table.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a nitro-induced tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and coffee notes, as expected. The flavor features a lot of chocolate and some light smoke, as well as a ton of roasted malt notes. Slick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

A friend brought this back for me from Texas. 12oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. I love milk stouts and I love almost anything Imperial so this seems right up my alley.

Pours a frothy .5 finger light mocha head with moderate retention. Beer is pitch black but looks a bit on the thin side. Lacing is thick and patchy with good stick. Decent.

Nose is bitter chocolate, roasted malt, lactose and smoke. Creamy with a nice balance but this doesn't have the "slug you in the face" quality that I'm looking for from an Imperial stout.

Opens lactose sugar, chocolate, anise, and a touch of liquorice. Mild smoke and roast tartness in the middle balanced by some fudge and cocoa powder. End is slightly boozy with more roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet aftertaste. Pretty much what is expected, which is to say, a strong, bold milk stout. Enjoyable!

Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with the slightest bit of bubbles in the mouth. Silky and a little bit hot going down. Finishes messy with a lingering, sticky aftertaste. Pretty good.

I wasn't sure what to expect here but the combination of Imperial and Milk Stout suggested a beer that just couldn't miss. Although this doesn't blow me away, its certainly a worthwhile offering. Try it!
