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.

A- Half inch tall light mocha head. on a dark brown body. Collar and webby lacing.

S- Aroma consists of 75% lactose and 25% chocolate.

T- Good roastiness with hints of cocoa. Lactose notes really come through on the backend. Doesn't drink 9.1%abv, would have guessed in the 7 to 8% range.

M- Lovely mouthfeel, thick and creamy. Carbonation is low and smooth.

D/O- I really enjoyed this one. The highlight for me was the creamy mouthfeel...that's how all stouts oughta be.Thanks kojevergas!

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!

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #83 (Dec 2013):

Brewed with lactose sugar and vanilla, this is one robust, rich and flavorful beer with distinct layers that unfold as the beer warms. Sweet and a bit warming, but not cloying or boozy, this is indeed a tempting beer and one to sip with respect.

STYLE: Imperial Milk Stout
ABV: 9.1%

LOOK: Opaque, black, creamy coffee-colored head

SMELL: Mocha, roasty, molasses, marshmallows

TASTE: Viscous, chewy, slick, sugary, char, raisins, leafy hop bitterness, molasses, caramel, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, graham cracker, sweet finish

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!

This is one of the creamiest milk stouts I've ever had. It was very good, almost tasted like whoppers, or a malted milk shake.

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.

Lovely sampling from a local brewery. I strongly prefer stouts, and this is by far one of my favourites.

A creamy smooth beer with a unique milky taste that has light hints of dark bakers chocolates and dark roasted barley malts that just melt in your mouth. To hell with the deep darkness in the color of this beer or the rich light brown head that quickly went south, the creamy smooth and welcoming taste steal the show.
