this is my favorite of all the temptress series. It's just an overall great beer. I do think it's a tad overpriced at 12.99 a bomber but I still buy it.

Poured from a 2015 bomber into a snifter. Pours a deep black with a off white 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong coffee roast with some brown sugar sweetness. Taste has a big vanilla and brown sugar blast, that transitions to a more mellow dark fruit and roasty dry finish. A little bit light in the mouth and a very drying effect on the finish is balanced by a nice coating of flavor. Overall this is a nice improvement on the temptress and a very well done coffee stout.

Sampled a pour while in FTW. Pours not quite opaque black and moderately viscous with a fine khaki head. Nose is surprisingly uneventful initially but as it warmed, sweet coffee and green pepper apparent. Taste is dominated by bitter coffee upfront followed by an interesting combo of sweet and spicy flavors. Spice lingers on the finish.

This beer only improves on the temptress, which i find rather unremarkable as a base beer. This adds the coffee spiced element in a very good way. Overall very tasty, will buy again

Dark brown with light brown edges. Poured with half inch of foam that dissapeared quickly.
Light coffee smell and flavor
Has some chocolate and coffee flavor and an almost milky mouthfeel. Would be excellent if Lakewood could crank up the chocolate and coffee flavors and add a touch of sweetness.

This beer has an awesome fragrance! If you put it in the fridge you need to let it warm up a bit. Then the flavores are awesome. You must like strong coffee to appreciate the flavors.

Tasted on draft at Lakewood release party at Whole Foods - Park Lane. Possibly my favorite of the Temptress series. Tastes a lot like Prairie Christmas bomb. They really ought to make more of this one. Nearly impossible to find, only just now being bottled.

On tap in a sniffer. Pronounced coffee and hickory flavor intertwined with the already stellar Temptress experience. Rates among the best of the coffee stouts.

Draft @ Lakewood
Black bodied and a thin brown head.
Tons of coffee and chicory jumping out. Vanilla and chocolate. Smells and tastes fantastic.
Nice thick, smooth, luxurious mouthfeel.

On tap at Craft and Growler. From notes.

Black with a fleeting, tan head. Spotty lacing. Roasted coffee beans strike out to nose, followed by espresso, dark chocolate, plum and brown bread. Tastes of roasted coffee beans and somewhat nutty with fruity notes of black grape, prunes and plum and a woody finish. Smooth, medium to heavy but a bit too thin and sticky. A lot of promise here but this story doesn't have a perfect ending. Oh well, so much for perfect endings.

A: Pours a black as night body, with a thin dark tan head that quickly fades to nothing.

S: To me this is one of the best, if not the best, smelling coffee beer I have ever had. The coffee is fresh and hits me right in the nose and has strong notes of chocolate following the coffee.

T: Smooth strong coffee, sweet chocolate and a slight amount of roasted malt. Just amazing

M: Extremely smooth for an Imperial Stout. There is a nice little tingle on the tip of the tongue and back of the throat. Just so damn drinkable.

A- dark brown, opaque with moderate tan head and decent lacing
S- Like opening a bag of fresh-ground french - roast coffee
T - Coffee and chocolate notes with a nice malty sweetness. Really good.
M - creamy smooth
O - A truly epic stout. I've gravitated away from stouts and into the realm of the hop-head in recent years, but this brings me back. A really nice version of an already great milk stout.

Poured on tap into a tall thin stout glass at the keep the glass party at Craft and Growler. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance: It's a stout. It's dark brown/black, with a small beige head. What a surprise.

Smell: Loads of creamy, roasty coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and sweet cream.

Taste: Did I mention there was a lot of coffee flavor in this? The sweet cream of the lactose base provides a nice backbone to the bitterness of the coffee. The base has coffee notes to begin with, lots of dark roasted malts in it, but the bourbon-aged coffee and chicory really takes it to a new level. It's really amazing. The bitter dark chocolate sticks around on the end.

Mouthfeel: Thick and creamy, with mid carb. A bit higher than I'd expect for a stout this thick and luscious.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised. Mole Temptress was comparatively disappointing so I was glad to see this variant was so damn tasty. Flavor reminded me quite a bit of Brunch Money, which really speaks more to how good a coffee stout Brunch Money is, considering it isn't technically a stout. Keep up the good work, Lakewood. You'll get a national reputation someday. Maybe after you start bottling these variants.

Had on cask at flying saucer in ft worth
A- dark as midnight
S- strong aroma of coffee, like waking up
T - a very stout brew balanced well with coffee and chocolate notes.
M - thick but smooth
O - one of the best stouts I've had. The cask likely adds quite a bit of flavor too.
