COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything you love about our Imperial Milk Stout, but boozier and nicely-aged. One could go so far as saying Bourbon Barrel Temptress is the "cougar" of milk stouts. Hints of vanilla, oak, toffee, caramel, and roasted coffee intertwine for a boozy, dangerously smooth treat. Take your time with her and she’ll reward you.

(En fût à Oak St. Drafthouse): Des sucres bruns, des pointes d’éthanol et un bourbon bien enrobant nous accompagnent jusqu’à la fin. Manque un peu de corps pour être mémorable.

Cavie (4086) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Tap at Bearded Lady. Jet black color, light ring of brown head. Low retention. Chocolate nose, vanilla, wood, light bourbon and roasted malts. Milky sweet nose. Flavor is sweet, milk chocolate, light oak and bourbon, dark malts and sugar. No warmth. Light finish of sweet notes. Fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013 bomber bottle shared by a friend. Poured a dark black colour with a caramel coloured head. Nose of lactose, milk chocolate, cacao powder, oak, subtle bourbon notes in a back blend way, full bodied, but quite disapointed after all those good ratings

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown (almost black) with a small, creamy, taupe head. Great retention. The aroma delivers fantastic notes of bourbon, big-time vanilla, toasted coconut and fudge. Full-bodied and velvety with airy carbonation. The flavor features deeply roasted malts, fudge, dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut and bourbon. Lightly burnt, bittersweet, vanilla finish. World class beer here, courtesy of Rosebud butternuts!

chocolate, bottle thanks to errl. Black pour with a small creamy head that fades to a nice ring and leaves great lacing. Aromas are cream, marshmallow, vanilla, oak, milk chocolate, and light cinnamon. Tastes solid. Sweet cream, milk chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and light coconut. Thin to medium body. This is good but I wish it was richer and thicker.

Bottle. Brown pour with a kaki head. Chocolate and caramel aromas. Loads of chocolate and Carmel notes with vanilla, oak, and mellow bourbon lowlights. Solid!! Good body and mouthfeel.

I did not receive the head or lacing I was hoping to get out of two pours. The bourbon and coffee is strong with this one. In my personal taste, it was too much coffee for me. I also got some vanilla and caramel. With a nice warm sensation as a finish. full review: http://wp.me/p5urG4-fK

Pours a pure black with a slight head. The aroma of sweet bourbon dominates the scent. Tastes of bourbon with a hint of Jack Daniels, and black cherries. Very nice finish. I really liked it overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great stout! Can really taste the bourbon barrel flavor coming through. Not too heavy on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
