3.72/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours fudge colored with a thick tan head; nice retention with splotchy lacing

Smell: Tart and jammy raspberry tones dominate, with chocolate and vanilla underneath

Taste: Raspberry jam forward with some tartness building; underneath, the chocolate and vanilla tones barely eke through; after the swallow, the raspberry maintains its dominance

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: From the 2015 release, the raspberry was surprisingly powerful, leaving me to think of this more as a fruit beer than a fruited stout; needs more balance

Thanks, Domvan, for the opportunity

Nabbed a 4 pack in Austin, TX.

"Imperial milk stout." "Ale brewed with lactose sugar and vanilla with raspberries." 9.1% ABV. 1.091 OG. 56 IBU. 33 SRM. Bottled 01.04.18.

APPEARANCE: Opaque black body. Creamy khaki cap.

AROMA: Raspberry. Milk sugar. Malty sweetness. Whoppers. Fruit. Chocolate malt.

Average aromatic intensity. Suggests a dessert beer. ABV is well disguised.

TASTE: Sweetness is high, but not too high as to be cloying. Dark malts, chocolate malts, milk sugar, raspberry with an artificial bend. Somewhat shallow. More bitterness as from roasted barley or coffee additive would help lend this needed complexity and better balance.

TEXTURE: Silky smooth and soft, which is just what it needs. Wet. Fairly thick. Full-bodied. Well-carbonated. Unrefreshing.

OVERALL: A solid milk stout that brings artificial raspberry to a very good base beer. I can't say I get any genuine vanilla bean and I don't think the raspberry flavour is a game-changer in terms of improving upon regular Temptress, but Lakewood brews a mean milk stout anyway you slice it and this is another solid addition to their repertoire even if the raspberry could taste more genuine, the beer as a whole could do with more depth of flavour, and the vanilla could come through far more.

Pours a pitch black color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is good. Aroma is like rancid raspberry. Not good. Big raspberry taste. More tart. Like cough syrup. Tastes rancid as well. Drain pour.
