4.24/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a fudge brown color capped by a mocha head; the lacing action was reasonably good

Smell: Milk chocolate aromatics, with the lactose and dark chocolate elements combining with a hint of Bourbon (the Bourbon grows more distinct as the beer warms)

Taste: Sweet chocolate flavor from the combination of the chocolate malt and the lactose with the Bourbon providing a hint in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: I expected a bit more Bourbon flavor and while it was subtle, it developed as the beer warmed; nicely blended and very drinkable

Serving type: on-tap

22 oz bomber courtesy of fthomasl pours a rich black with a fluffy brown head. Excellent retention and lace, a good looking brew. Bonus points for a badass label.

Nose has quite the bourbon on it, lots of chocolate and a nice sweetness.

Wow, im pretty damn impressed...the bourbon character with the sweet lactose is very interesting. Lots of chocolate here...not a whole lot of wood. The mouthfeel is perfect - thick velvet, smooth and low carbonation. They had this on nitro at the brewery, I can imagine that would be even better. This is well worth seeking out. I like regular Temptress quite a bit, and this is a big improvement on that.
