Virtually black, one finger of mocha tan head. Lacing works well on my pint.
Smells of some dark fruit, chocolate, anise with ethers.
Sticky sweet, chewy flavors of coffee and milk chocolate, sharp vanilla notes. Bitter/ roasted and a bit drier towards the end, but greatly balanced overall. A hint of fruit is in here for me too, along the lines of cherry or raspberry, and it adds a nice touch to an already delicious stout.
Mouthfeel is oily smooth with creamy carbonation. Great with dark chocolate (coffee beans with this tasting). This is the type of imperial (milk) stout i like. Im only surprised i didnt seek it out earlier, especially given i reside in the town in which the brewery is based.

Not the actual Temptress, but the Bourbon barrel Temptress. Had a glass at the brewery on 12/22/2012. This was a wonderful stout. Must admit that the entire tasting experience was very nice, but the Temptress, either aged in a bourbon barrel, or not, was wonderful.

Poured into an Imperial pint glass. The look is absolute black with a frothy tan head that settles into thick cream and stubborn lacing. The smell is chocolate and citrus. The taste is a wallop of chocolate up front, then recedes into a woody, dry finish. Very nice indeed. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall, I really like this beer. It has a great, deep flavor without being as acidic as some beers malted this darkly can be. It hides the alcohol well and promises a great time. Besides, who can't love a beer that says right on the bottle that it pairs well with sin?
