Style: Milk / Sweet 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.

temptress indeed ... rich, dark, shapely, sweet, fulfilling.

A - Opaque, thick black, creamy coffee-colored head that lasts and laces.

S: Coffee mocha, roasted malts, molasses, candy.

T: Follows smell but more... Viscous, chewy, char, raisins, hempy, hop bitterness, caramel, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, with a long mid-weight, sweet finish.

F: chewy, weighty, satisfying.

Texas now knows how to do craft as well as any state.

Bottle share at Steve’s. Mild for a RIS, but super tasty. Slick and slippery, mild smoky and savory notes, cinnamon, nutmeg and anise. Highly enjoyable.

Nose: Some coffee, a hint of vanilla, faint tobacco notes.
Palate: Burned caramel, coffee, roasted malt. Pairing this beer with food was bit strange. For some reason it brought out a metallic aftertaste when combined with acidic foods.
Feel: A bit thin for my taste but not a big deal.

Black with dark red edges and a fizzy, light tan head that dissipates to a very thin ring, then nothing.

Lightly roasty, but otherwise not much aroma.

Caramel, fig, tobacco, Dr. Pepper, and a hint of smoke. In other words, it's a fairly sweet stout.

Feels like a fizzy cola, if a little thicker. Temptress is oddly thin for a milk stout, which does not exhibit a whole lot of milkiness.

Poured out a color that was Super dark, and with a minimal head. Thick taste and feel with some faint chocolate. I Love stouts and this one was, in a word, awesome.
