Lakewood The TemptressLakewood The Temptress
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lakewood Brewing Company
Texas, United States | website

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a rich black color with a dense cap of khaki head. Nice retention and great lacing.

Nose is sweet chocolate with a mild plum fruit and brown bread. Smells like a milk stout, thats for sure.

Taste starts with chocolate and mild roast, followed up with a surprising amount of grassy hop. The finish is long and dusty with the alcohol finally making its presence known. The mouthfeel is very nice, the beer is perfectly carbonated and the body is silky smooth. It is not as heavy and sweet as I thought from the aroma, but it is more than enough to compliment a 8.5% ABV. This is quite a tasty treat, I am looking forward to getting some more of this on my next trip up to the metroplex!

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.

Had this one on tap at Zio Carlos Brewpub in Fort Worth on West Magnolia.

Served in a brandy snifter the color was jet black inkiness with a single finger worth of dark brown head.

Aromas of chocolate and coffee greeted my nose and rich lingering tastes of smokey chocolate and espresso. The beer was surprisingly viscous and felt very rich on the tongue.

Low carbonation with an incredibly thick and rich mouth feel that lingered for some minutes after each sip.

While this effort by the fledgling Lakewood Brewing Co. in Garland is not the best Imperial Russian Stout I have had it certainly is distinct and holds it's own against the top US brews in this style I have tried and rate highly. (North Coast Brewery, Fort Bragg, CA, etc.)

4.33/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: The coal black liquid arrives with several fingers of head that leaves a curtain of lace behind

Smell: Chocolate and coffee

Taste: Milk chocolate and coffee, up front, with a hint of dark fruit and caramel that adds complexity; after the swallow, the milk chocolate flavor dominates the finish though there is a roasty quality the lingers throughout and becomes more noticeable in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth develops in the gullet

Overall: A very impressive imperial stout that brings a rich chocolate flavor with a coffee twist

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.
