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.

The taste like the aroma starts out with sweet dark roasted malts with a lingering sweet and roasty notes in the finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth and medium bodied. Overall, this is a solid milk stout that is worth a try for anyone who enjoys the style.

Bottle sample @ RBBWG 2016, thanks Dylan. Brune foncée, col fin beige, doré au verre. Arôme est mis en avant par de belles effluves de Bourbon, léger rétro de boisé marqué par ce chêne américain. Malt caramel, pointe de chocolat. Palais est épais, note bien le s11%, Bourbon bien placé et qui tranche avec un profil axé chocolaté, caramel. Petite touche épicée en fin de bouche. Reste que je n’ai pas spécialement trouvé ce côté milk stout.
