Maybe got a bad bottle or something. Not as flavorful or sweet as expected. I'm going to try another and amend the rating if needed. Slight tart finish also maybe from an infected bottle? The regular Temptress is really good but this one fell short. The bottle design and box are cool though. Will give this one a second chance in a day and rewrite the review if warranted.

Lactose on the nose and taste was a bit too much for me on this one. Just wasn't as good as I expected it to be.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 bottle.

Appearance - Black body. Medium khaki head. Lots of surface wisping.

Smell - Lots of bourbon. Oak. Kinda nutty malts. Milk chocolate. A little lactose, but not a lot.

Taste - Chocolate up front. Lactose comes through too, which I don't love. Kinda nutty malts and some oak. Bourbon is much stronger in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Kinda sweet.

Overall - Better than I expected it to be, especially for a milk stout.

Sampled on tap at the bearded lady in FW. Pours black as night- or at least in this light. Just a hint of discernible head that leaves a bit of nice lacing. Just a bit of vanilla beyond the obvious bourbon the nose, but to be fair my lack of patience did not allow this beer to warm appropriately. Taste was much more well rounded with nice cherry, raisen, prune, vanilla and dry oakiness rounding out the bourbon notes. Mouthfeel is almost slick.
