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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a bottled on date of 12/16; into a snifter.
Appearance- very black with only enough light coming in against the sun to reveal some streams of carbonation along the edge of the glass and just a trace of crimson at the bottom of the glass. Thin to medium mocha head that slowly vanishes as it sits. Lacing is
Smell - sweet and boozy aroma with a blend of vanilla, milk chocolate, booze and oak!
Taste - flavors reflect the features of the nose, but an additional flavor or two can be detected, though I can't quite put my finger on them; black licorice and or coffee perhaps!
Feel - full body; sweet, robust, boozy and complex!
Overall - very tasty and well put together stout; most milk stouts are too sweet for my liking, but the high ABV gives this a warmth and sting that makes the sweetness more of a compliment as opposed to the main feature!

Very dark brown with a fingers worth of tan colored head that leaves a ring around the top. Aroma of chocolate, malt, and dark coffee. Taste is of milk chocolate, light roasted dark coffee, and vanilla. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Overall a very nice milk stout, with more body and coffee than most.

Poured at 47°F from a 12oz bottle (bottled 17Mar16) into a tulip. Allowed to warm up to 50°F before reviewing. Consumed on on 26Sep16.
SMELL: Strong plum, fig, black cherry, bittersweet molasses, and sweet chocolate aromas are balanced and backed by mild aromas of vanilla, tree nuts, cream, bitter roasted malts, bittersweet coffee, caramel, and toffee.
4 out of 5
TASTE: The profile commences with a strong, balanced sweetness from flavors molasses, figs, plums, and black cherries. Strong flavors of sweet chocolate and mild bitter roasted malts quickly trail without impacting the delicate balance of the beer. Mild caramel, toffee, and cream flavors fused with subtle flavors bittersweet coffee melt into the profile while continuing to maintain the balance. The taste theatrical concludes with an undisturbed balance of mild vanilla and tree nut flavors as the bitter roasted malts grow slightly stronger.
4 out of 5
NOTE: Balance, balance, balance. And did I mention "balance?" I cannot recall the last time that I had a beer that exhibited such a perfect performance between sweet and bitter. While I was beyond impressed by this aspect, I was still left with the desire of more sweetness. Perhaps a more fresh bottle would grant me that yearning.
