Style: English Sweet / Milk Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.10%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Va-va-voom! Our Temptress is seduction in a glass. Curvy in all the right places, this Imperial Milk Stout pours with a thick, milk chocolate head. Chocolate and caramel malt give it a rich and complex body while the lower carbonation gives the beer a silky mouth feel. She’s voluptuous, with a soft alcohol warmth that grows deeper with every sip. Take your time with her and she’ll reward you.

Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque in the glass with a thin brown head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet dark toasted malt, milk chocolate, a little vanilla nad caramel. Flavor is dark toasted malt with light char, caramel, dark bitter chocolate and coffee. Finishes with nice charry malt and dry toffee. Medium bodied with light creaminess. An interesting take on the milk stout style; quite a bit more char than typical for a milk stout and the better for it. The body smells and initially tastes like a stout with lactose sweetness, but it gets drier and smokier during the taste and finishes much more like a charry American stout. I like milk stouts, but often wish for a bit more character and this one delivers that. I like the charred malt, which is good balance with the malt. Good choclate notes too. Nicely done. Wouldn't mind finding this one sometime again.

From the tap ...Black color with thick, off-white head. Smells of malty chocolate, molasses and caramel. Flavor is slightly bitter with smokey malt, tobacco, la semi-sweet end..Lots of body, brief finish. Fantastic
