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. (228 characters)

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. (159 characters)

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. (185 characters)

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. (480 characters)

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. (524 characters)

4.5/5  rDev n/a

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. (405 characters)

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. (1,193 characters)

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. (282 characters)
