I really like the base beer, and I absolutely LOVE the mole iteration, so I was excited to try this. Look is the same as the others, the nose is big coffee and some bourbon, no discernible vanilla.

The taste is very rich, with coffee dominating again (which it is wont to do in my experience). Doesn't have the creamy feel I enjoyed so much in the base beer, but this is still very enjoyable.

Oh, the smell, it's like candy. And the taste is like an overloaded pot of Jamaican Blue Mountain that someone depth charged with SoCo. Out of this world.

Pours like all the other Temptress types, dense with nice head. Pungent vegetal nose of chicory. Light coffee notes. Taste largely follows the overpowering bouquet...vegetal, herbaceous. I'm not a huge fan and it is hard to separate the judge from the personal taste. I'm out.

Dark brown to brown on the edges where it shows clear. Minor head that doesn't remain. Minimal lacing on a swirl.

Nose is strong malt, roasted coffee, minor vanilla, and minor bourbon.

Taste is lactose, sugar, coffee, minor vanilla minor bourbon, and chicory on the finish.

Mouthful is medium is creamy. Carbonation is average to above average. Finish is semi sweet.

A good representation of a Sweet Stout. All around nice. Only drawback is the chicory - it doesn't really do much.

Wildly over carbonated. Perhaps this was a problem with age but it ruined feel and aroma. Complete foam party. Flavor was solid so I'm giving ratings something of the benefit of the doubt.

Pours an effervescent ebony with 2 fingers of mocha colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Big time coffee & a little vanilla once warm

T: Coffee, chocolate & dryness up front. Lactose dryness/sweetness & a little bitterness from the Chicory as this warms along with charred grain & cocoa & a whisper of cinnamon, Finishes with lactic dryness/sweetness, a little mocha as well plus herbal & woody notes

MF: A little chewy, slight carbonation, some boozey warmth

Pretty tasty & drinkable despite the heft & complexity

Lakewood’s Temptress series is great and I’ve always wanted to try this one. I finally did and I was not disappointed.

Look: very dark brown, almost black, with an inch thick bubbly mocca colored head.

Aroma: it has a strong and pleasant aroma of roasted malts, chicory, coffee, vanilla, and a little bit of bourbon.

Taste: The taste is sweet malts, chocolate and vanilla, lots of coffee, and a little bit of booziness and bourbon.

Feel: Full body, creamy, and smooth, and very drinkable. It is truly outstanding.
