Lakewood Brewing Company The Temptress Imperial Milk Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Lakewood Brewing Company The Temptress Imperial Milk Stout - Ale Brewed with Lactose Sugar and Vanilla. I picked up this bottle while in Texas at Hall’s Wine & Spirits (here) which is a must visit bottle shop if you find yourself in or around Dallas.
From the Lakewood Brewing Company website: “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.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours black with a thin tan head and leaving good lacing on the glass.
Aroma: Chocolate, caramel, coffee, vanilla and toffee dominate the nose with just a slight scent of lactose.
Taste: Sweet – chocolate, caramel, lactose sugar and vanilla.
Overall: I am tremendously glad this beer was recommended to me as Lakewood Brewing Company The Temptress Imperial Milk Stout is excellent. This 9.1% ABV offering is something I would drink often if it were available to me. Two enthusiastic thumbs up! Find some – drink some!
