Poured on-tap into a glass at Craft & Growler in Dallas. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance: Deep dark brown, almost black but not quite. A coffee milk colored head but disappears quickly and was hardly substantive to begin with.

Smell: Typical Temptress roasty milk chocolate and coffee. Some cinnamon comes though, but not particularly strong.

Taste: Milky, bitter coffee and chocolate. Not much more chocolate than a normal bottle of Temptress has. Some cinnamon, but relatively faint. Chilies blend in with the alcohol burn on the finish, with a faint roasty, smoky quality from the chilies. With the cinnamon I was expecting a more Hunaphu like experience, but this is more like Bomb with a Temptress base. Not like that's a bad thing.

Mouthfeel: Not particularly thick, but a long, burning linger. Carb is prickly at first but fades quickly and the beer is quite smooth by the finish.

Overall: Another solid offering from Lakewood. I would have preferred a lot more cinnamon, but the beer was very good regardless. I'm looking forward to future Temptress variants!

Large shared bottle. Near moderate heat from the peppers despite little sign of them in the aroma.
Medium-full body and carbonation.
Lingering heat.
Sweet aroma with some maple syrup and cinnamon.

Bottle shared by Umberto last night.

This one pours a fairly dark black, with what appears to be flakes of cinnamon floating in the beer. There's a small head, and not a whole lot of lacing.

This one smells like cinnamon, sweet cream, chili peppers, and chocolate.

I've never had the original Temptress, but this seems to be a nice adjunct-heavy variant on it. The chili peppers come through quite nicely, with lots of sweet chocolate, some sweet condensed milk and lactose, and a good amount of sweet and not too spicy cinnamon.

This has a very creamy mouthfeel, as expected, with a lower level of carbonation.

A really nice Mexican-style stout, certainly of my favorite styles lately.

Pours ok but head quickly disappears. Smells fabulous. Tastes incredible. Feel is a little thin, sort of like the pour being headless.
